I’m very proud of this beer, because it comes from that exotic country. :-) Bought it in Denmark. It has brown reddish color with small head. It has taste of sweet malt and it’s lightly bitter. Solid beer.

BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
330ml bottle in my hotel room: Berlin 21st Jan 2016. Bought from the fantastic Ambrosetti beer shop. Bright Amber body with a wispy head. Malty, sweet and alcoholic in nature. Warming and plaesing with enough going on in the mouth to keep me interested. I liked it.

(2) Not worth trying. If you are trying to make your way around the world in beer - then the F islands is a good go - or need to go.

Amber pour with small off white head. Hints of fruit on the nose. Flavor is malty, with granny smith apple and other tart fruit. Little to no carbonation. Finish is crisp. Thanks to my folks for the bottle.

MGantzel (126) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2015
Denne Færøerske øl smager af ristet malt der giver en aroma af karamel. Øllen er lidt tynd, uden skum og med den mørke farve (dog lidt gennemsigtig) ser øllen lidt trist ud. Lidt bitterhed kan fornemmes som eftersmag. En lidt kedelig oplevelse.
