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 (225) - 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.

Bottle at home from Ocado. Clear bright orange / light amber coloured pour with a lasting frothy off white head. Aroma is light herbal, mineral, light caramel malts, little soapy in the finish. Flavour is composed of tangy herbal, earthy hop, little orange, light metalic note in the finish. Palate is medium light, moderate to high carbonation. Malt is light biscuity with a little caramel. Ok.

slowrunner77 (6165) - Reno, Nevada, USA - DEC 22, 2014
Pretty boring brew that’s not bad but a little light on the hops for the style, or a little old.

MrBlueSky93 (123) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Not Bad, lacks aroma, appearance is nothing too special either. Honey and Wheaty notes, Bitterness from the Cascade Hops. Biscuit Undertones. Bought from Stirchley Wines.

The Sampler, Brooklyn bottle ($3.50): Pours orange with a white head. Aroma is light pine, bunch of malts, some citrus. Taste is slightly bitter. Kind of malty. Not very complex, interesting, or good. Meh.

Matt_Foran (69) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 6, 2014
You get a nice orange flavor on the taste, with the malts hanging on the palate afterwards. Not a lot of complexity to this beer, really straight forward.

Sjohnh (290) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Amber colour, small white head. Not much aroma. Has the orange peel marmalade flavour of a barley wine or DIPA, but not really rounded off with a bitter finish. OK.
