Winter Ale - Seasonal ale

We have brewed a dark well hopped ale that we think respond well to the hearty and often rich Christmas foods. The combination of roasted flavors, dark chocolate and coffee meets cirtus flavors and aromas from the hops.

Malts: Pale ale malt, pale caramel malt, dark caramel malt, melanoidin malt and choclate malt.

Hops: Centennial, Chinook och Cascade

Food pairings

Works particularly well with typical Swedish Christmas smorgasbord. Pickled herring, cured salmon and "Jansson’s Temptation" (potato, onion and pickled anchovies baked in cream). Meatballs, spareribs and sausages are also a staple at the Christmas table. Another great pairing would be port wine braised shoulder of lamb with garlic and herbs served with gnocchi.

EBC is an acronym for "European Brewery Convention" and is a measure of the beer's color. A lower value indicates a lighter beer and a higher value for darker beers. A really light American lager beer might have EBC 4 while a typical Irish stout has EBC 130

FG stands for Final Gravity and is a measure of the finished beer's density compared to water. FG is used together with OG to calculate the alcohol content.

OG stands for Original Gravity and is the wort's density compared to water before fermentation. It can be translated as the sugar content of the wort and is used to calculate the alcohol content.

International Bitterness Units: Is a measure of the beer's bitterness. Most beers are in the 10-110 IBU range, where 10 is a low bitterness and 110 extremely high bitterness. Beers with similar IBU may although taste more or less bitter depending on different alcohol levels or higher residual sweetness wich reduces the perception of bitterness. A bright, low alcoholic beer with IBU 25 can be perceived as more bitter than a dark strong beer with IBU 50. We send our beer for analysis to get a correct IBU-value. Therefore, our values ​​seem low compared to those who only have a theoretical value of their products. Formulas for the IBU has a tendency to grossly overestimate the value. A clear example of this is Thurbo DIPA who has a calculated value of about 150, but measures as 74.

Malt is the main extract giver to the beer, accounts for the sugar that the yeast will break down into alcohol. But malt also contributes with mouth feel, color and gives flavor to the beer.

Alcohol by volume is the official measure of alcohol content in Sweden. We only measure the alcohol content indirectly by the density of the wort before fermentation (OG ) minus the density of the beer after fermentation (FG). That value is then inserted into a formula that gives the alcoholic strength by volume.

Cones from the plant Humulus lupulus which in modern times is the main spice in beer. It adds bitterness, flavor and contributes to the beer's shelf life with its anti-bacterial properties.

Gluten is the protein found in the grains; wheat, rye and barley. Gluten intolerance (celiac disease) is an inflammatory bowel disease in which the sufferer must avoid gluten. Sufferers of Celiac disease must adher to a gluten-free diet for life. Rules for labeling products as "gluten-free" or "very low gluten" is stipulated in EU Regulation (EC) No 41/2009. The limits for products labeled "gluten-free" and "very low gluten "  are 20 mg  respectively 100 mg gluten / liter.
