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 (13198) - Ashford, Kent, - 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.

Fudgy and slight taste and aroma of alcohol. Sweet. This is a really good Norwegian brewery playing with Nordic mythology both in the naming of the brewery and the naming of different beers. This style is a bit difficult for me but I appreciate a quality brew.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle, thnx to Cunningham. Pours a hazy brown beer with a small beige, creamy head on top. Aroma is very malty, loads of caramel, sugar, nutty and sweet yeast. Flavor is very sweet again, loads of caramel again and has this light sticky mouthfeel. No real boozyness detected, but the alcohol is noticeable. Quite sweet aftertaste. Very nice beer, could use some more complexity to be honest. Nice one.

Bottle. Brown murky. Brown toffee, malty bready. Tad syrupy. Full med bodied, soft nice. Butterscotch toffee. Real nice drink. Full, taffy- like. A dessert in itself.

Brown hazy beer with long lasting head. Aroma has ripe fruits, yeast, syrup and some roasted malts. Taste is roasted, dry, earthy, after warming up some alcohol pops up too. Full body with medium carbonation.

djoeye (1207) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2014
Lindisfarne deserves the limerick: Dark copper beer out of the bottle. Roasted malts smoothly down throttle. Syrup prunes smoke. From barrel of oak. Sour fruit malts linger out the wattle.

Duntoyou (100) - Kr.sand, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2014
Kopper/raven. Off white head. Lots of malts in the nose. Smels "thin". Mdium carbonation. Not much complecity. Maybe some dried fruits, but nothing hammering. Baught because i wanted to try it next to gavle scotch ale

Mørk brun uklar med et tynt beige skumlag. Lukter karamell, gjær og noe røyk. Fruktig og mye røyksmak, medium bitterhet og kullsyre. Lang god ettersmak.
