COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, red malty ale is the culmination of Nick and Ingrid’s excellent adventure! A collaborative exchange with Norway’s Nøgne Ø saw the two brewers swapping lives and jobs “half a world away”. This beer was built on friendship, brewed to remind us that natural ingredients are always the best. Drink in good company.

Draught at Haket, Göteborg. Clear amber/orange beer with a decent offwhite head. Malty nutty aroma, cream, fruity, vinous, grapes, plums, raisins, some peach. Malty vinous flavor, cream, toffee, nutty, grapes, warming alcohol, caramel, notes of licorice. Really nice beer, hugely drinkable with alcohol well hidden.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2014
500mL bottle. Pours deep cloudy rudy red with a small beige head and a nice stone fruit aroma. Stone fruit dominates the flavour with hints of molasses and grape?

3.6
Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Bright reddish-brown. Aroma has crystal malt, some fruity-earthy notes. Taste us similar. Light body for a beer this size. Not a bad beer, but certainly not exciting.

3.4
