Ölbeat 308: Linden Red Ale

Brewery: Linden Brewery (in Finnish)
Country: Finland
Style: Irish Ale
Abv: 4,5 %
What about the beer?
Colour is dark brown with a huge natural white head. Aroma has caramel malts, dark fruits and gentle roast. Taste starts with bitter bready malts. Dry grainy malts and bitter hops take over with mild fruity side tones. Near the finish malty dryness comes out strongest. Aftertaste has dry malts and bitter grainy flavour.

Dry malty Irish Ale - first of this style in the blog. Alright, but would've expected a little more depth behind the grainy main flavour. The first one from the brewery tasted a lot better for me.


Simply put, I picked a song from a band from the same town as the brewery. Some experimental rock for the experiments of a rather new brewery.
