COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Den 8. juni 793 markerte starten på vikingtida då klosteret på øya Lindisfarne vart åtaka. Sidan vi er glade i både vikingar og øl vart me inspirert til å kalle vår Scotch Ale etter øya. Ølet er fyldig med eit lett røykpreg som kjem frå Peated Malt. Prøv ølet til kjøttrettar og spesielt røykt spekemat.

PapaVillum (912) - Valby, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2017
Mahognifarvet og ufiltreret Scotch Ale / Wee Heavy med minimal offwhite skumtop og rødligt skær. Toppen svinder til kant og overflade. Fine diskrete, men elegante røgmalts-noter og ditto af tørret frugt, såsom sveske og rosin. Virkelig rar og bittersød, men også røgpræget smag. Smagsbilledet indledes let sødligt, men fint balanceret med en god medium bitterhed, som langsomt overtager og bliver røget i slutningen af den tilsatte røgede tørvmalt. Lille til medium sødme og middel bitterhed. Mellem til fyldig krop med en lettere nedjusteret karbonering. Ganske blød mundfølelse uden at være flad, men fin frisk og levende. Konsistensen er olieret og afslutningen er bitter, tør og kort. Overall: Ægir kan! Vel balanceret skotte med den rette mængde sødme og tør røgsmag. Tæt på en perfekt "skotsk" øl, når man medtager ABV'en på 7.0 %. 40 cl på fad, 7.0 % ABV, nydt på Kompasset på Østerbro. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Clear dark amber color with a reddish head. Aroma is toffee/fudge, earthy, caramel. Taste is caramel, toffee, a bit nutty-earthy, a touch of roasted/smoked malts, feels rather sirupy. Rather sticky mouthfeel. Not bad, but quite sweet. A bit too sirupy.

piwnepodroze (497) - POLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Wygląda - przyznacie - przeciętnie. Brunatne, nieprzejrzyste z niewielką pianą. Jednak już zapach sprawił, że uśmiech na mej brodatej twarzy się powiększył. Przede wszystkim miód wielokwiatowy, mocna skórka od chleba, karmel i delikatne estry. Smak to głównie karmel, ale lekki. Średnia goryczka przyjemnie go kontrowała. W posmaku uwydatniło się mocne drewno, kojarzące mi się ze starą beczką. Jak na piwo o zawartości alkoholu 7%, to jest Lindisfarne wyjątkowo lekkie.
