Aile

Categories: [ Beer/Okell's ]

Okells_Aile

“Aile is the Manx Celtic word for Fire and this crafted Okells Beer has delicate smokey aromas derived from the careful addition of peated malt. This malt is made from selected barley that uses burning peat during th malting process.”

Smells like Marmite® or Vegemite®, or maybe some kind of vegetable broth. The taste is slightly bitter, but the smokey aromas are very delicate… Made of malted barly.

Okell's Ltd, Kewaigue, Douglas, Isle of Man. 4.7% alcohol.

Mac_Lir

« a unique light golden colour, … a refreshing burst of sweetness on the tongue and … a complex dry finish »

A very sweet smell that reminded me of peach. The taste is quite bitter, and not fruity as the smell would have let it being expected. Made of malted barley and malted wheat.

Okell's Ltd, Kewaigue, Douglas, Isle of Man. 4.4% alcohol.

Doctor Okell's India Pale Ale (IPA)

Categories: [ Beer/Okell's ]

India_Pale_Ale

« A light coloured beer with a full bodied tasete, the sweetness is offset by a strong hopping rate. This gives the finished beer an over all roundness with very spicy lemony notes and a fine dry finnish to counteract the initial sweetness. »

A quite fruity smell (apple? not really, but I can't put a name on it). Not too bitter.

Okell's Ltd, Kewaigue, Douglas, Isle of Man. 4.5% alcohol.
