Red Horizon 2. Edition I’m calling it a strong ale from Nogne O with saki yeast from Norway. I’ve only sampled a couple of Norwegian beers over the last few years and am yet to be disappointed. Boy oh boy does this beer pack a punch, 13.5% is one hell of a punch! This ale has been carefully crafted using sake yeast number 7 from Nagano Japan.
Pours a strong dark ruby red with quite a strong boozy nose. The sake yeast gives it a really nice fruity flavour but wow the alcohol is strong, like spirits strong almost. On a very cold day like today this ale warms you up instantly. It’s a very slow sipper at almost 14% but it’s a really nice flavour and leaves a nice warm feeling at the back of the throat. Very complex boozy beer. I liked it.
