COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kui sulle koerad just vastukarva ei ole, siis mingil hetkel oled kindlasti imetlenud mõnda newfoundlandi koera ehk njuufat. Ta on pilgupüüdja, ja põhjusega- majesteetlik, massiivne ja tugev koer, kellest kiirgab väärikust ning headsüdamlikkust. Just sõbralik hiiglane on andnud inspiratsiooni "Lõbusale Njuufale". Ka õlu on suur, must ja sõbralik. Jõulise keha annavad õllele Vienna, Munichi ja Pilsneri linnased, tumemusta värvi saamiseks on lisatud röstitud linnaseid ja sõbraliku humalamaitse jaoks Citra ja Cascade humalaid. Erinevalt oma vaprusega legendaarseks saanud koeratõust, njuufa õlu su elu päästa ei suuda. Küll aga võib ta ühe sõpradega veedetud õhtu soojemaks teha.

"Jolly Newfie"
If dogs are not against the grain, then at some point you surely have admired a Newfoundland (‘Newfs’ or ‘Newfies’). This dog is an eye catcher and with a reason – majestic, massive, and strong dog who shines with dignity and kindness.
This gentle giant has given the inspiration to “Jolly Newfie”. This beer is also large, black, and friendly. Pilsner malt, Vienna and Munich malt give the beer its powerful body, roasted malt gives the dark black color, Cascade and Citra Brand hops give the friendly taste of hops.
Unlike the dog breed legendary for its bravery, Newfie beer is unable to save your life. However, it can warm up a night out with friends.

330 ml bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja Toidumaailm. Pours very brown, almost black. Beer seems to be very liquid, no viscosity. Has initially a nice foam head, beige - but that disappears rapidly, leaving some nice lacing on a glass. Aroma is not very strong but has some hops, some subdued roastiness. Taste has dark malts, roast and also floral hop flavours. Some sort of sour note lingering with some dry roast. Overall interesting beer, body a bit shallow for 6,5% beer - but it must be said that alcohol doesn’t show at all and it feels much lighter. Could drink it again.

Neulen (9) - Nürnberg, Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2016 does not count
Pours dark and deep, but almost no head. Fresh rich smell, bitter and aromatic. Toasty taste goes down brilliantly. And it has dogs in the label, which is always a plus.
