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.

3fourths (8102) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Draft. Coarse and grainy bran muffin and toaster crumb malt with some earthy dirtiness and a simple black plum ester profile to go with the chocolate syrup notes. Sweet taste, low bitterness, low acid, smooth and creamy body, soft carbonation. Nice enough in the mouth but the nose has some problems for me.

Great beer! It’s british classic ale with a bit more body and some smoky notes that kind of hits the spot.

Marstonlad (438) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Pours hazy light brown with a little brownish white head. Aroma has sweetish maltiness, some roasty and plenty of smoky notes and also some dark fruitiness - smokiness is surprising. Taste is very malty and smooth with a medium to full bodied palate. Smokiness is very much present but not overpowering; the taste also has bread and some sweetish fudge in it. This is actually quite nice to drink, I haven’t detected smoky notes from other scotch ales I’ve had but it suits this ale well. The prize in Alko is disappointingly high, however, even by their standards.
