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

Very ordinary pale ale. Watery, uninteresting and not very fragrantly. Not good.

danlo (1338) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
330ml bottle at Oven, Darlington. Clear amber orangey gold colour, foam off-white head and aroma of malt, caramel, citrus. Flavour is malty, caramel, bready with some citrus and grassy bitterness. Light bodied, medium carbonation, malty light bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Pretty boring brew that’s not bad but a little light on the hops for the style, or a little old.

MrBlueSky93 (40) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, 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.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle at Our Black Heart, Camden on 23 Jun 2012. Poured a lightly hazy copper, with a dense white head. Aroma of peppery hop, toasted malt and herbs. Biscuity malt flavours, with pine-like hop bitterness and caramel. Finish was hop resin, toffee and grain.

mansquito (3581) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2014
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 (50) - 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 (256) - 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.

Gylo (121) - Lublin, POLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Będąc na Islandii byłem zaskoczony sporą liczbą piw rzemieślniczych, niestety na lotnisku przy powrocie dostępne były tylko piwa "koncernowe", które i tak w Polsce są chyba słabo dostępne o ile w ogóle. Mimo wszystko smak w porządku, poprawny, nie wyróżnia się szczególnie, ale było miło napić się czegoś dobrego daleko od domu.

djoeye (1855) - Tromsř, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2014
Diminishing off white head, deep golden clear beer. Mild aroma, pale malts, floral notes, mild dusty hops, almost perfume far away. Taste; caramel malts, gentle hops, yellow apple, leaves, moves towards earthy malts and herbal hops in finish. Slightly dry mouthfeel, normal body, suitable carbonation. Okay. [33cl brown btl, abv5.6% 13°, BB11AUG15, 5€, B@Vinmonopolet Langnes Tromsö]
