4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great fresh citrus hop aroma right from the bottle but with some malts giving it a decent battle. Quite fruity with an ice light hop body and finish. The beer has a weird fresh/aged flavor to it, as crazy as that sounds. Picked up at the Solvang brewery in CA.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful mouthwatering copper colour .. faint head, still holding .. hoppy aroma .. pleasant taste .. palate is wonderfully balanced, leaving a slight oily mouthfeel.
*I believe this brew will greatly imporove with age (in bottle)* Give it 3-5 years in the cellar.
Perfect Ale to have with Whisky.
I never thought I would rate an Icelandic brew this high.
Hats off for the brewmaster.

Bottle. My first from Iceland and very impressive it was. Bronze with a small head.Low carbonation with a biscuit like flavour and some citrus presence. Not overloaded with hops as most pale ale seem to be these days. Surprisingly pleasant.

Medium yellow/amber with a thick frothy, decent masting head. Smells of malt, hay, straw, toasted cereal and a nice hoppy orange citrus. Tangerine. Light to medium oily soft carbonation body. Nice sweet malt, caramel with a nice hop bitter citrus orange finish. Fruity and not overloaded. Very easy to drink.

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass dark orange, nice head. Starts wonderful grasy-hoppy, modest sweet, light dry notes in the background. Flowery-grasy finish, still a bit sweet, well balanced. I like it.
