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.

Fatehunter (2053) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Poured a half finger of head on a medium amber colored body. The aroma is caramel and honey. Pleasant. The taste starts out with mild bitterness, moves to chalky bitterness and finishes sour. A bit disjointed. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. A descent pale ale.

Gehbe (11) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAY 24, 2016
Golden, clear. Nice thick head, some lacing. Aroma: herbal, grassy, dried fruits, some malt/bread. Not very strong, but pleasant. Taste: somewhat malty, but bitterness overtakes the maltiness. Very pleasantly/softly bitter finish. Palate: medium body, not too much carboantion. Very palatable. Overall a great and very drinkable pale ale. Extremely drinkable.

thanatosti (1414) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Wijnzinnig, Gendt. Clear dark golden with a white head. Malty aroma. Bittersweet taste. Good malt body but the hops are seriously lacking. Maybe an old bottle but this one was only remarkable for the country it came from.

floydslip (319) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Light amber beer with a thick billowing off white head. Fairly weak nose of pine resin, citrus, and slightly sour yeast, but you have to hunt for it. Flavor is stronger with some mild cereal grain sweetness overlaid with slightly fruity hops leading to a relaxed soapy bitterness. Pleasant enough, but not long on flavor.

Borresteijn (6079) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2016
33cl Bottle from REWE Stenten. Almost forgot to rate this.. Slightly hazy golden amber colour, white head. Aroma of light floral malts, light citrusy hops, very English in malt and yeast profile imho. Flavour is likewise, malty, some caramel, light floral, light citrusy, light bitter finish. Light bodied. OK-ish.

DraftDodger (882) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2016
Copenhagen 8/5 2016. 33 cl bottle from Mad & Vin. Enstöks grim Viking on the label. Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Moderate lacing. Settles as 0,5 cm thick layer of foam. Aroma is not particulary strong. Exotic fruit and citrus. But quite subdued. Medium carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is pleasant enough but a bit diluted and watery. Well balanced between between discrete malty sweetness and light bitterness. Nice but a bit too bland to be truly good.
