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.

Toasty caramel aroma, nice a malty. Light hops as well- but misty smells like a pile of grain. Light and refreshing, better cold...well balanced between hops and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Martin243 (696) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2014
330 ml bottle cold in a Premier Inn room in Manchester. Hazy orange, bit of marmalade aroma. Hoppiness is there, but not robust, just about noticeable. Not enough of anything in this beer to make it interesting, or raise it above the ordinary. Supped it in about 5 mins with impunity. Needs to grow a pair.

Bottle. Deep orange hue, aroma and flavour if ripe pitted fruits and caramel, rather low on bitterness. Not bad.

Thin tasting watery. Quite a bitter aftertaste. I was expecting quite a bit more from this beer since it was from Iceland. Bitter from start to finish. Will not buy again.

Clear amber ale with thin bubbly white head fresh crisp ale with some light bitterness from hops not hugely complex but a decent fresh pale ale that is refreshing and easily drinking

0.33L bottle. Nice amber, small bubbles, medium foam. Fruit, milk aroma. Overcooked sugar, lightly fruity, grass, and raisin. Watery finish at first and some seconds later is medium bitter and green salad flavor.

visionthing (2399) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
33cl bottle at F-hoone, Tallinn. Pours clear deep golden to amber with a small off-white head. Mild fruity and hoppy aroma, pale malt and hints of citrus and herbs. Moderate sweet, pretty mild in flavour, but quite refreshing. Finishes rather mild, but pleasantly bitter.

Koskela (231) - Marysville, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Slight sweet aromas sneak out thru the tarts in this Cloudy pale orangie red brew with a small white head. A malty bitter taste come from this beer. A hint of biscut and tartness in the aftertaste. Bitterness lingers on the back of my tongue. The beer is light/medium bodied with good carb. Overall a bit bitter for a pale and the tartness throws me off a bit. But otherwise not a bad brew
