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.

Dashimus (226) - London, Greater London, - MAY 19, 2013
Bottle from Myvatn natural baths, Iceland. Pours a true clear amberWith an of white head which is moderately laying and leaves some blobs of lacing. Aroma is maltiness, subtle spice, soap and perhaps some caramel. Not really any hops. Taste is quite bland which is a little disappointing. Malty sweetness with a fairly mild bitterness. Moderate carbonation and a weak to moderate body.

Une très belle bière typée, avec de la fraîcheur, de l’amertume, et un très bel équilibre. Un bière de soif et de plaisir.

mcberko (8520) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 19, 2015
On tap at Islenski Barinn, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out light toasted malt and a restrained stale hop character. Flavour is clean, with a dry very light floral hop character balanced by a dry biscuity malt backbone. Pretty boring stuff but competently brewed. Uninspiring.

ON bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order (bu). Deep golden color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; malt, hops, dried fruits and light caramel. Medium body & complexity. A little on the sweet side, but quite ok balanced with decent bitterness. Enjoyable

Mmmh, mit isländischem Wasser, mal sehen. In der Nase Malz, Karamell. Schaum baut sich schnell ab. Im Grunk setzt sich die Nase fort, im Abgang leicht bitter. Nicht sonderlich speziell, nichts aus der Reihe.
