Nogne O / Holgate Brewhouse Half A World Away Imperial Red Ale
Brewery: Nøgne Ø
Style: Imperial Red Ale
Format: 500ml Bottle
Half a World Away is an Imperial Red Ale and the culmination of Ingrid and Nick's great adventure. In the collaborative brewers exchange with Holgate Brewhouse of Woodend, Victoria in Australia the two brewers swapped lives and jobs. Inspired by the basic ingredients of beer, the reciepe for this malty ale was developed side by side with friendships with brewers half a world away. Pairs well with rich barbeque dishes. Enjoy in good company.
This is the Norwegian version.
WHAT OTHER CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Rich, smooth, plums, raisins, cabernet, hint of chocolate.......complex. Lots going on. Hop profile is a bit light on.
Quality all the way
I first had this as a growler fresh off the keg and it blew me away. The bottle is slightly mellower, but it perfects the beer as it is much more balanced. Lovely warm alcohol, chewy special B raisins and chocolate. Awesome.
