- German beer specialty brewed with real honey
- Inspires with an extraordinary honey-velvety soft mouthfeel and great complexity
- Fusion of subtle flavours creamy sensation for the palate
- For all fans of sweet, full-bodied beers and honey lovers
Odin inspires with an extraordinary texture: the honey gives the beer a velvety soft mouthfeel and also ensures great complexity, profound and tasty.
Odin flows into the glass with a shiny dark gold tone. A firm, white foam crowns the beer and smells heavenly sweet of creamy honey, pale malt, ripe autumn fruits and a hint of clove. The first taste reveals a medium-weight body with a gentle carbonation and a dominant honey aroma. The honey flatters the palate in a sweet and creamy way and fine malt, green apples, and a hint of spice round off the flavours. The finish is subtly bitter and wonderfully complements the sweetness of the honey.
With 5.4% alcohol, the full beer is easy to drink, and the honey sweetness hides the alcohol almost completely. Almost a little dangerous, because you want to empty one bottle after the other and certainly don't think about the alcohol it contains. Honey and beer, what's not to love?

Beer is a major part of German culture.
Although the castle brewery was founded in 1745, beer was already brewed in Drehna more than 300 years ago. According to Drehna`s church records "David the brewer" made beer in 1677 and in 1718 the "High-Prince brewer George Kuhring" continued the tradition.
From the same time, it is known that the Duchess Agnes Emilie of Saxe-Weissenfeld, Countess Reuß ordered all pubs or “public houses” in her jurisdiction to only pour beer from Drehna to their clients.
The Countess was succeeded by Count Seyfried von Promnitz, who enlarged the brewery and had it built in the immediate vicinity of the castle on the spot where it still stands today.
The Count was followed by the family of the Counts to Lynar of Drehna. Since 1807, when the former Lord of the castle Moritz Ludwig Ernst Count von Lynar was elevated to the rank of Prince, the town, brewery, and castle are called "Fürstlich Drehna".
