American and Bavarian craft come together with the finest Icelandic water to create the Viking version of the Pale Ale, where robust hoppiness meets smooth malty undertones. Cascade hops give it the American character, while Northern Brewer hops add just enough bitterness to make this Ale refreshingly Icelandic.

mzaar (2051) - Varberg, - DEC 4, 2012
Flaska. Bärnstensfärgad öl med stort fluffigt vitt skum. Doftar mer lager än APA, med svaga citrus-, gräs- och toffeetoner. Samma smaker som i aromen. Nästan helt utan beska. Frisk och fräsch, men för en APA väldigt trist.

This beer tastes like the Icelandic landscape looks. Big, wide, open. A bit smoky in taste.

Excellente. Soit, sans originalité mais un houblonnage quasi parfait. Le nez est très fruité : litchee/abricot. La bouche a un arrière un peu (trop) amer mais reste très agréable si assez fraîche.

Nonshaugen (47) - Fetsund, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2015
Water is a key ingredient to beer making. Iceland and the other nordic countries do have the best waters in the world to work with, this one beeing no exception. The pour reveals a wonderful dark golden colour. Aroma is mild and slightly hoppy. Taste is hoppy and light, medium to heavy bitterness, well carbonated. Palate is average, overall I think a 14 is a fair verdict. Personal comment: I did expect more from this beer. After tasting their porter, I was really looking forward to this APA.. But, after the first excitement of the tremendous colour was over, it left me a bit disappointed.

Bamsen78 (4401) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with notes of caramel and touches of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and touches of needles and yeast. Malty and estery aftertaste with slightly acetic and bitter notes. Okay.

lokis333 (44) - LITHUANIA - JUL 26, 2015
Clear amber/gold colour with little to no foam. Aroma has bit of Citra smell but not very strong. Tastes light with hops dominating the beer. Nothing too outstanding but nice beer to try.

weark (435) - Morges, SWITZERLAND - JUL 23, 2015
Bouteille achetée à Drinks of the World - De couleur orangée avec une fine mousse blanche qui redescend assez vite - Au nez des arômes de malt, de caramel, de biscuit, une pointe de fruité et quelques notes terreuse - En bouche toujours beaucoup de malt, du biscuits, du caramel, et des houblon terreux - Corp léger/moyen, amertume moyenne carbonation correcte, amère, final maltée biscuit - une bonne pale ale mais pas du tout orientée américaine ca ressemble plus à une bière anglaise

tightslice (429) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is malt, some herbs. Taste is malt, caramel, honey, herbal lozenges... very mild earthy hops / bitterness / wood on the finish. Not a fan.

MiP (14453) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle, 5.6%. Weak caramelly aroma. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is also caramelly as well as watery. It has a mild bitterness, not entirely clean but OK. Decent but nothing special.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with small white head. Some floral hops aroma, but mostly caramel. Medium carbonation. Malty taste, too low bitterness.
