The slightly unclear, copper colored rye beer is brewed using three different types of rye malts as well as light pilsener malt and a little brewing syrup. The use of Winter Rye gives the beer a characteristic aroma that is pronounced by a fresh note of citrus from the Cascade hops from Yakima, USA. The fullbodied and dry flavor is due to the light pilsener malt and the regular rye malt, while the caramel rye malt adds a discrete sweetness. The chocolate rye malt ensures that there is a balance between the two. The aftertaste contains a flowery hoppiness. Best served at 8-10 C.

    Bottled (BBE 2007...). Orangeish/pale nutbrown colour with mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is ryebread with caramel malts and some slight notes of fruits and honey. Flavour is caramel malts, some bready notes as well as earth and milf fruity and floral notes as well. God knows from where I have gotten this a long time ago. Had a nice dustlayer on it already.

    (700 ml bottle, bought in Denmark). Hazy copper colour, good head that doesn’t last too long. Aroma is citrussy (Cascade) with hints of prunes and caramel. Flavour is malty and quite bitter (Carlsberg have been generous with the hops here), the rye doesn’t really stand out - this beer reminds me more of an American IPA than anything you’d associate with rye bread. Still, this is an interesting beer, and a likely favourite with people who can’t get enough Cascade hops.
