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.

Gary (1391) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle: Ok so we, the mighty UK bailed Iceland’s ass out in the economic crisis few years ago. So what have they done for us? Umm export mundane beers here? Yes!!! Looks like SNPA,they meant that. Hoppy dry citric nose. Drinks : malty sweet with caramel accents, peppery boozed hops. Some late fruit like peach ester or orange hops shows up to make thus less boring.

330ml bottle from Oddbins. Small bubbly white head disappears quickly, a little lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is bready, a bit straw. Flavour is light grass and biscuit, nice hop bite on the finish. Decent lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is good, medium carbonation with a bit of chew. Drinkable and well balanced.
