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.

rotaman14 (355) - Germany, lives in Vilnius, LT, - AUG 23, 2015
Dark golden body, stable white head with nice lacing. Aroma of green hops, yeast, a little bit of citrus. Taste is more bitter than I expected, with some dryness and spicyness later on, even a little citrus taste lingers in the mouth during the long aftertaste. Perfectly clean and well balanced. This is pretty good actually.

kamwitsta (289) - POLAND - AUG 17, 2015
Aroma: a little malts, a little old coins; somewhat faint. Appearance: orange, clear, head large and pretty stable. Taste: bitter, a little sweet. Palate: body medium; carbonation fizzy; finish bitter and a bit sweet; feels foamy; spicy; alcohol not very well masked. Overall: has a bit of a Belgian feel to it; nice but not great.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with notes of caramel and touches of hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of malt and touches of needles and yeast. Malty and estery aftertaste with slightly acetic and bitter notes. Okay.

MiP (14481) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle, 5.6%. Weak caramelly aroma. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is also caramelly as well as watery. It has a mild bitterness, not entirely clean but OK. Decent but nothing special.

lokis333 (76) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUL 26, 2015
Clear amber/gold colour with little to no foam. Aroma has bit of Citra smell but not very strong. Tastes light with hops dominating the beer. Nothing too outstanding but nice beer to try.
