The description of a beer found in a shipwreck ... it was made in 1839-1840 so the flavours may be "a bit" off of the original flavours!
The original tasted of "sweet apple, rose, butterscotch, and clove" from some educated guessing. They've reproduced the beer in Finland
Two beers have been made:
- Historic Beer 1842
- Historic Beer 1843
I'd love to try them, ... one reviewer described the 1843 as "It tastes like what I drank from a red plastic cup in college.” So I'm not sure if it is actually that good...
Ratebeer is not kind to it:
