Nøgne Ø is a brewery that also makes sake.  That comes into play when making Red Horizon, a beer made with sake yeast No. 7.  Apparently if you are into sake, No. 7 is something special.  This created a beer that has both beer and sake characteristics.  Red Horizon comes in a small (8.25 FL OZ) bottle which is inside a tin can.

Tasting Notes:

Poured a nice redish orange hue with a fizzy head which dropped quickly and left lacing.  Sweet malt notes, alcohol and lighter fruit smells.  There are notes off molasses on the tongue with stone fruit flavors and a hint of vanilla.  This beer is full-bodied with low carbonation and at 17% ABV, drinkable.
