3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Bottle: Ok so we, the mighty UK bailed Iceland’s ass out in the economic crisis few years ago. So what have they done for us? Umm export mundane beers here? Yes!!! Looks like SNPA,they meant that. Hoppy dry citric nose. Drinks : malty sweet with caramel accents, peppery boozed hops. Some late fruit like peach ester or orange hops shows up to make thus less boring.

330ml bottle from Oddbins.
Small bubbly white head disappears quickly, a little lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is bready, a bit straw. Flavour is light grass and biscuit, nice hop bite on the finish. Decent lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is good, medium carbonation with a bit of chew. Drinkable and well balanced.

Bottle. Dark amber pour with white head. Good lacing. Aroma has limited hops and is almost like a pilsner. Not bad but not what you would expect from a pale ale. Taste has some bitter notes and the beer leaves you with a dry mouth. Average carbonation

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
American-style pale ale commissioned by probably the northernmost beer producing company in Europe. Loose, greyish white, unstable head on an orange blonde, clear beer. Cooked pasteurized smell, caramel and nutty malts, bit of grass, iron, dried fruits. Relatively simple taste, malty, faintly sweetish, bit thin mouthfeel, caramelly and nutty, mineral-like, leafy hops in the finish. Interesting for being Icelandic but that is where the excitement stops.

Sampled @ Gents Bierfestival 2014. 330 ml. bottle. Clear orange, little white head. Light metallic nose with light citrus, ice water, straw,… Weak, bland touch metallic taste with hay, citrus, dough, banana, bubblegum, vegetables, weak grainy,… Touch watery, crazily bland & metallic, total weaksauce, this could almost pass for a pale lager.
