Den 8. juni 793 markerte starten på vikingtida då klosteret på øya Lindisfarne vart åtaka. Sidan vi er glade i både vikingar og øl vart me inspirert til å kalle vår Scotch Ale etter øya. Ølet er fyldig med eit lett røykpreg som kjem frå Peated Malt. Prøv ølet til kjøttrettar og spesielt røykt spekemat.

Hazy dark amber colour with a tan head. Moderate sweet fruity and a bit smoked nose. An unbelivable fine blend between a sweet fruity and light smoked flavour. Very well when the red sun goes down in the ocean. But Scotch and Lindisfarne....hmmm something wrong here....

Bought at Vinmonopolet Tromsø Sentrum. Dark amber body with an off white creamy head. Nice roasty aroma mixed with dried fruit and light smoke. Associations to beef jerkey, oak and brown sugar. Touch of licorice in the finish. Very interesting beer, this one! Much enjoyed.

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
0.5l bottle. The pour on this one is deep and dark dark reddish and it has a fantastic looking dense and almost creamy off-white head that’s really sticking around. It’s mildly sweet and malty on the aroma with traces of caramel, chocolate, nuts, dark dried fruits and something faint smoky and black. Quite nice indeed! It feels really thick and almost creamy in the mouth with a subtle and soft carbonation level. Lot’s of flavor! I get burned caramel, dark dried fruits, roasted nutty butter and traces of both bitter chocolate, wood and something almost herbal-smoked. Took a while before I noticed the peaty smoky tones(blamed on this coming stright from the refridge), but they are most definitely there! Really tasty and definitely never to sweet or anything like that - something I always fear in these kind of brews. 05.05.2012

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2012
500 ml bottle. Dark mahogany colour. Some small floaties, which I’ve seen in other of their beers, especially Tors Hammer. Smoky malty aroma with roasted malts and plums. Sausages. Refreshing hop profile. Sweet dark malty flavours with roasted notes. Fairly low carbonation level, could have used just a little more. Thick velvety texture. Overall a very enjoyable rich malty brew.

Bathory (458) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2012
Was looking forward to try this one. Dark brown colour, with a white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, some chocolate, leather, butterscotch, licorice, smoke. Complex beer with a lot of taste. Roasty finish. A different, but excellent new beer from Ægir.

ClubGonzo (4752) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a deep, dark nougat brown body with a medium creamy off-white head, with some durability. Nose is peated malts, caramel and hints of bread. Taste is dark malts, caramel, peat, smoked ham and hints of toffee and licorice towards the end. Wonderfully smooth and very easy-going for a beer which is definitely bordering on the "smoked" category. Velvety, medium full body. Long smokey aftertaste with substantial amounts of roasty peat tones lingering. A very nice beer from Ægir, which definitely adds another dimension to their already diverse selection.

ABS (714) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2012
Pours brown, with a hint of red. Light, off-white head. Malty nose, with lots of smoke, bacon, coal and also a hint of an unpleasant smell I just can’t place. Not that bad though. Smoky aroma, with bacon, lots of malt and chocolate. Quite thick mouth feel. Sweet, with lots of bitter aftertaste. Good.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 22, 2012
From keg @Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Low creamy beige head. Body is near brilliant, ruby brown. Clean, well prononced malt aroma. Rounded caramel notes, hints of dark dried fruits, pepper and earthy hops. Clean, medium full malt body, with a light and refined sweetness. Faint berry notes. Subtle bitterness. Soft mouthfeel. Rounded malt finish. Not as malt-accented as expected for a Scotch Ale. Nevertheless, a well crafted and tasty beer.

larsga (6765) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 10, 2012
Small beige head. Clear deep red body. Deep dried fruit and earth aroma with spicy chocolatey notes. Dry-sweet roasty dried fruit taste with cinnamon and herbal notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Dry, and faintly acidic, earthy roasty aftertaste with spicy chocolatey wooden notes. Really nice. Full of flavour, highly drinkable, and very balanced and harmonic. (0.3l draft at Håndverkerstuene, Oslo.)
