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 (2410) - 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.

0,33 l Flasche als "Einstök Icelandic Atlantic Ale". Dunkeloranges Bier, flacher, weißer Schaum. Riecht frisch und nach Aprikose. Geschmacklich dann leicht malzig, sehr hopfig, aber zu wenig bitter.

massingasetta (555) - München, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2016
This beer does what it says on the tin .. err.. bottle. It combines hoppiness (which sounds like "happiness") with great well balanced malty notes. It seems that craft beer tends to level any historic or traditional bonus that brewers may have. I certainly take my hat off for this good beer.
