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.

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.

Incredible brew. 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.

worldbeertaste (1546) - AUSTRIA - AUG 15, 2012
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.
