A few days ago Lervig kegged the new batch of Henrik Imperial Amber Ale. The rebrew of the hop monster is paler in color as a result of being brewed in the bigger brew house at Lervig. This resulted in less caramelization of the wort. This being said, fans of the first version will absolutely recognize the brew.
A balanced blast of hops
To call this brew balanced might be a stretch considering the amount of alcohol and the massive hop profile. But – I really think it is just that – balanced. It seems to be even smoother this time around, but don’t take our word for it. The brew is getting ready to be shipped to Henrik Øl & Vinstue in Bergen as we speak and there is talk of some kegs getting shipped somewhere else.
We can hardly wait to get to know the rebrew of this massive beer and share it with you guys. We absolutly feel it has been worth the wait and are wondering how long it lasts before it sells out this time.
We’ll get back to you with a release date and release venues later.
