3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from First Edition, Kilmarnock.
My first ever Icelandic beer and not one to leave a lasting impression though not too bad. Tastes more like a decent lager than a pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Hazy, dark amber with a 2" rocky off-white head, mottled wall of lace. Taste is malt with light caramel that adds mild citrus hops on the swallow to share the ride through the finish. At the back end, malt sweetness prevails. A standard Pale Ale, but pretty well done.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Best before May 20, 2015.
Glass: Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Hazy amber body, rusty looking, with a persistent light tan head.
Aroma: The aroma is vegetal, very tea like with hints of citrus. Malts come off a bit stale. This smells pretty old but it’s still within freshness.
Taste: Tastes a little better than the aroma. A bit stale tasting, a tad earthy/woody, tea like hop presence is huge and lingers.
Palate: Medium bodied, slightly creamy.
Overall: I dunno if distance or age, but this just isn’t very good. It’s not offensive, just tastes stale and boring.
