Faroese: Okkara Jól hevur tað rætta lutfallið millum góða fyllu og smakk øðrumegin og leskiligleika hinumegin, sum ein góð jólaøl eftir okkara tykki skal hava.

Danish: En red ale med en dyb farve og en elegant balance i smagen. Nyd sammenspillet mellem den krydrede smag fra den porøse færøske vulkansten og den runde frugtsmag fra gæren. Vores/Okkara’s omhyggelighed er garanti for smag og kvalitet.

Brewed with Faroese lava rocks.

NosirIwont (2368) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden/amber with a tan head. Good lacing. Tart, spicy aroma, malty and with a note of yeast. A light citrus note appear as it warms. Malty and dark fruit flavour, a wee bit cloying. Maybe a remote note of chocolate? Tart, dry and bitter finish with a light spicy note and a bit of alcohol. Overall so-so; a bit too cloying for my liking. 31.08.12.
