Red Horizon is a remarkable ale, at 17% abv it tastes no alcohol at all but still has the body of a lager!! This fact can probably be attributed to the special yeast that was used in its brewing: Sake yeast. I’m not a big fan, but it’s still an impressive and unique craft beer.
The beer was released mid 2010 and became available at Vinmonopolets bestillingsutvalg in September 2010.

Beer Test 1

I previously posted a shot of some fine home brewed nectar of the gods won in a small football wager.
My co-worker and fellow football, beer, and photography enthusiast question my beer pouring technique when he saw the photos. "Did you do a slow smooth pour when decanting this delicate bouquet of heavenly liquid" he inquired.
Alas, I had not. I has started with a respectable slow pour down the edge of my glass, hell, I thought it was respectable that I was bothering to put it in a glass anyway. I usually quaff directly from a bottle, but this being a home brew, and illicit gains from football wagering, I wanted to thoroughly enjoy, view, and document, the color and look of this blueberry ale.
So although I had started with a 43.5% angle of pour, gently down the edge of my glass, I shifted gears at about 1/3 of the pour to a more violent pour to get a nice head on the beverage.
Even that was a little late as the head I received was a little thin.
My compatriot challenge me to do another gentle slow pour as not to disturb the sediment and see if I achieved a clearing product.
The results you see here are the results of the test. I had five remaining bottles of ill gotten gain, so I decided to do a test and suffer by having to drink two beers at one sitting, one poured gently and slow, and the other rashly and quick.
