An American pale ale
Classen's Lise is a lovely ale with camomile and heather honey. The camomile and the honey play subtle but important roles; the camomile enhances the citrus flavours of the hops, while the honey adds something flowery to the mix without making the beer too sweet. Classen's Lise is a pleasant, straw-coloured beer with a dense white foam - and makes you think of a summery blend of flowers, fruit, grain and straw.
We recommend Classen's Lise as an interesting choice for spicy dishes. The bold beer drinker should also try it is as a substitute for a dessert wine.

THE FAIR LISE
In 1756, the Danish king Frederik V donated a mill by Roskilde Fjord to major general Johan Frederik Classen (1725-1792). Here, Classen started a considerable arms production with a powder mill and a cannon foundry. He named the location Frederiksværk, which today is the largest town at Halsnæs. In time, Classen also became the owner of two Halsnæs manors; Arresødal and Grønnessegård. He named a nearby seaside town Liseleje after his beautiful stepdaughter Lise.
