COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Gr0ve (2162) - 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 (4294) - 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 (595) - 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 (4802) - 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 (6356) - 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.)

espenra (893) - Kurland, NORWAY - FEB 4, 2012
On tap at Håndverkerstuene. It poured a dark red, almost amber colour with a big creamy head. Aroma is malts, caramel and toffee. Some butterscotch as well. Sweet. Flavour is also sweet, but with a hint of bitterness. Notes of malts, caramel and toffee of course. Hops are present, but the disappear fast.

berlinoise2go (632) - NORWAY - FEB 3, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2012 On tap at Håndverkerstuene, Oslo. Gorgeous-looking dark amber colour, with an inch-thick sticky offwhite head that leaves lots of lacing. Classic ’dusty cellar’ scotch ale aroma on a semisweet fruity background, with caramel and citrus. Excellent balance. Medium/full body, slick mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A staggeringly well-made brew [Ar 7, Ap 5, T 8, P 4, O 16]. Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Still good-looking and well-made with a very smooth mouthfeel, but the typical Scotch dusty/cellar characteristics in the tap version is more or less replaced by smoke and xmas-like spices in the bottle version, hence lowered rating [Ar 6.5, Ap 4.5, T 7, P 4, O 15].

On tap at Amundsen
Dark red, beige head and nice lacings. Smells of smoke, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is quite malty and smoky, some sweetness too, some ripe fruits appears as well. Very carbonated, lively pricking on the palate. Nice bitter finish. After some warming up, more intense sweetness arive and actually dominates and fight off the bitter finish
