COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottled. Pours a clear, pale amber colour with a small off-white head that doesn’t last. Hops and pine dominate both on the nose and in the mouth, while the flavours are very dry, yet very well balanced and clean. A very good American-style IPA.

DedicatedToFun (2334) - Santa Monica, California, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle, golden pour, no real head, nose is lacking, taste is pretty basic, some hops, a hint of bitter, but nothing to brag about.

Jacamus (11) - Beverley, East Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2014
Appearance is quite a dark chestnut, not particularly pale! Aroma is malty sweet , bit of spice there. Taste is crisp despite a sweet malt, toffee in abundance, bit of earthy hop and spice. Definitely a nice beer, just reminds me of an ESB more than a pale.

Beersiveknown (2781) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle at home from ales by mail
mid amber with stream of bubbles and thin white head. Slightly piney resin on nose, a little thin, sweet caramalt, grapefruit, touch oxidised, past its best perhaps...my fault.

Nice and fresh. Not too bitter, a little dry on the pallet. Pretty easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Strong floral flavours make this very light and fresh but there's also a nice malty backbone to the aftertaste. A hugely enjoyable pale ale
