Jacobsen – Velvet Ale


Found in a local supermarket in Denmark at 2,75 Euro for a 5,9% 750 ml bottle.

At the age of 24 J.C. Jacobsen starts the brewery Carlsberg in 1847 on Valby bakke. In the pursuit of brewing the best beer he develops breakthrough methods for refining the yeast in his laboratory. In 2005 the Carlsberg group opens up a small experimental brewery in the old original buildings used by J.C. Jacobsen, a small brewery made to experiment with developing new types of beer.

A bright white sparkling winelike beer fills the glass and gives the impression of sparkling wine.

The head structure is light bubbles that soon disappear.

A different kind of beer, it is descibed as velvet, winelike and without bitterness. This is one of the few times where I agree with what is written on the label. It is a pleasure to drink, resembles white wine without bitternes, something to enjoy.

A good and different beer that is everything you would expect and to the price it is excelent!

Overall rating is 81 / 100
