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.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Tap at the brewery, Flåm, 25/10/14. Narrow-haloed copper glinting with ruby. Big dark berry, wax and peat aroma leaning towards Germany. Doppelbock-like beast with deep nectarine, plum, Everton mint and humbug suggestions. Pretty solid: another generic Ægir 14.
