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.

downender (7756) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle as ’Icelandic Arctic Pale Ale’. Amber in colour, with a slight, off-white, head and moderate carbonation. A touch of citrus and hedgerow fruits, leafy hops, and sweetish, digestive malts. leading to a decent, bitter, finish. Good.

jgb9348 (5524) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Crisp golden coloured body with the slightest hazy glow and a nice, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of light fruit, earth, nuts and a bit of subdued mildly low alpha acid hops. Light-bodied; Assertive grassy flavour at first with a lot of malt, some lighter sweetness from honey and fruits and a mild metallic flavour that shows up at the end. Aftertaste shows some grass, a lot of metallic bitterness and some earth - no real hops to speak of. Overall, a decent beer at best - this wasn’t showing much hops and the other flavours are mild at best. I sampled this 33 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Bowery), New York on 28-May-2016 for US$2,99 sampled in my hotel room in Lower Manhattan on 29-May-2016.

HPDalen (188) - DENMARK - MAY 28, 2016
Very malty and yeasty aroma. I smell dough and bread. Lovely golden colour with a pretty small and frothy head. It tastes very bland unfortunately. Some bitterness and maltyness, but not very interesting. Feels thin, average carbonation. Very short. Boring.
