Tim Webb (231) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2013
33 cl bottle at Vagar airport, holed up waiting for a flight. So we got to taste half a dozen of the Okkara 4.5-5.8% beers in a line. Outside the interesting Rinkusteinur this one came tops for interest (tasteable hop, bigger grain, everso slightly zippy), so I would pick it out if you ever get stuck in a Faroese airport with nothing to do except rate beers.
