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.

harrisoni (13566) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
bottle thanks to Rune and Finn. Thanks guys. Bottle drunk at home whilst waiting for some rice to boil to go with my thai red curry after a mixed day at work. Both unbelievably depressed and also so happy I will meet all my targets for the year by the first week of December. Deep brown red colour with lasting bubbly beige head. Slightly smoked aroma. More smoke and peat in the mouth. Blimey that’s quite juicy in the malts as well as some peaty smoke. Interesting beer. Some good juicy hedgerow fruits from the malts. A little prickle on the finish. But also some sweetness. Pretty decent to be honest. Good balance between sweet fruit and peaty smoke. Good. thanks guys.

Bottle at home. The colour is clear deep brown, with a very small beige head. Aromas of dark wood, brown sugar, leather, barbecue sauce and hint of smoke. More smoke in the flavour along with burned wood, oak, leather, dark chocolate and alcohol. Slick and smooth mouth feel. Bitterness = light+. A fantastic beer in both aroma and taste.
