Malmgårdin Dinkel

When Lars Bender (anyone did know him before?) scored the 2:1 against Denmark I opened Malmgårdin Dinkel and thanked the football god for his good will.

As I haven't had a good Danish beer in my stash (are there any?) I took the next one from somewhere in the north. To my surprise it was one brewed with spelt. As far as I know there are not that many beers around brewed with Triticum aestivum subsp. spelta.

I didn’t remember having a spelt beer before though I imagined it being like a wheat beer. To my surprise it wasn’t. It was refreshing and fruity while keeping a good mouth-fullness. The spelt changed the malty pattern slightly to a rougher taste, perhaps a little more metallic and salty.

Its one of those beers which I have to taste a second time.
