COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Næsta Sct. Brigid ølin í 120 ára føðingardagshaldinum hjá Föroya Bjór. Sct. Brigid IPA er ein gylt, yvirgerað øl, har átta ymisk sløg av malti og fýra sløg av humlu eru nýtt. Smakkurin er meira fyldigur frá maltinum og avrundaður við eini kraftigari bitturheit frá nógvu humluni. Hetta ger bjórina heldur beiskari enn onnur bjór sløg.

yngwie (13191) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2009
Bottle, probably provided by faroeviking. A clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is hop-driven with fruityness most evident, and some malts in the background. Fruity and bitter flavor, not as bitter as hoped for, with some grapefruit and green pinecones. Some malty sweetness to balance it, and a bit more pronounced bitterness in the finish. Still not as hoppy as wished for. Medium to full body. A decent one, but they shouldn’t be so gentle with the ingredients. (081211)

Clear straw with a diminutive white head. Nice aroma with juniper. Malty flavor with spices and bitter herbs.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2008
03/11 0.33 l bottle courtesy of ogivlado, great thanks for sharing! So, again this evening, it was a new beercountry for me and even the new style. It poured golden body with smaller head. Weak aroma, just a hint of hops here, rather honey malty or some faint grains. Flavor was sweetish malty as well, a bit fruity and with weak notes of some herbal hops. Also quite thin bodied, resulting in short finish, resembling not really impressive flavor. Not bad beer, but I’ve expected something completely different...and better. Well, fine, it’s not a real IPA.

<b>Bottle 33cl.</b>
Clear medium amber orange color with a average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, keller - cellar alike, not much hoppyness in this beer. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (050908)

ogivlado (5584) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottled(330ml). -trade with faroeviking (thanks Jacob).
Golden coloured, small white head, dusty mild spicy nose. Malty, weak hoppy and herbal with bready and fruity notes. Rather sweet finish. Poor IPA.

Marko (3894) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle ogivlado got in a trade with faroeviking (thanks!), shared with him and heavy.
Poured a golden, honeyish body with a small white head that went away fast. Had doubts about this one and they were confirmed when I smelled it and found just some graininess and honey. Bready taste... where’s the hop? Yeah, sure there’s some extremely weak orangey aroma hops but they are oh so damn weak that I thought that my imagination’s playing tricks for me for a second. Nowhere near the level of a proper pils let alone an IPA. Some dust too. It’s not a bad beer, mind you, especially compared to most others from this brewery, but they are just naming it wrong.
