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.

mateuszk (1583) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 12, 2016
Bottle. Looks just like a lager, crystal clear, fluffy head. Old (but in bb date), oxidied, no hops. Also taste like lager not ale, quite clear and crisp. Fresh could be really good.
