Okkara / Mikkeller Gullhornið English Style IPA
Bottle. 5.5%. Best before 03.18. 10 cl. sample. Pours a hazy yellow with an off-white head.

Okkara Kervil No. 1
Bottle. 5.7%. Best before 16.02.19. 10 cl. sample. Pours a clear, dark brown, with an off-white head. Malty, hoppy aroma with a spicy note, the latter taking on an anise-like resemblance as it warms; apparently it's the chervil. Flavour is sweetish, with an anise / sweet liquorice note. Malt, hops in the background and a hint of chocolate. Roasted finish with an ashy note. Dry-ish, mild alcohol burn and a light dusty overtone. Lingering grassy note. Overall decent; the anise (chervil) is interesting. 13.01.18.

Okkara Rinkusteinur
Copenhagen 7/9 2017. 33 cl bottle from Den Gamle Købmand. Very stony label to illustrate that this ale is using lavastone from the Faroe Island for caramelization. Pours hazy amber with yellowish head. Settles as thin layer of patchy foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet caramel, brown sugar and a light whiff of butter. Light carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is strongly sweet followed by medium sourish bitterness. A bit too sweet for my taste buds - but solid Amber Ale.

De botella. Hazy deep golden colour, medium white head, good lacing. Pleasant fruity simcore hoppy citrus aroma with malt, sweet. Fruity hoppy sweet citrus fresh flavour with malt and a good bitterness, pleasant dryness. Bit "thin" like though but a great brew and hopefully just the start for more tasty brews to come from Okkara.

Taste is sweet with caramel malts, then herbal notes kick in with anise and licorice. Herbs dominate but there is some grass hops in the end. Medium body and medium carbonation. Maybe too herbal for me.
