COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rainbow bridge made from fire, air and water, used by the gods to travel from the world tree, Yggdrasil, to the heavens. Asgard. Brewed with Pale malt and small amounts of Munich and Crystal malts. Bittered with Centennial, finished with Amarillo and Styrian Goldings hops. Strong, hoppy, and smööth

Ibrew2or3 (8155) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 4, 2007
On tap at the Elysian Tangle Town location. It pours a clear deep gold with a copper core and lasting white foam head. Nice sheet lacing. The aroma is pale to sugary malt sweetness, some mild citrus to slightly pine hoppiness and a murmur of dark fruity esters. The taste begins with both lightly roasted malts and moderate pine to grapefruit hop bitterness. The hops begin sweet with hop flavor early and then become increasingly bitter. About midway the malt sweetness peaks with a brief moment of fruity esters before grainy Munich malts pick up the flavor and carry it into the after taste with the growing hop bitterness. This beer is big and hoppy with lots of hop bitterness. It ends somewhat thick and viscous.

RSRIZZO (1949) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Had this beer on 1/2/2003. Aroma is a nice sweet scent with hints of hops. Color is a hazy golden orange with good carbonation and a thin head. Taste is hoppy. Starting with a medium body it goes down with smooth with a slight crispness coming on. Finish comes in with a sweetness that is almost wine like, this is followed by a hop flavor and mild bitterness. Its more of a Pale Ale than a Winter brew but is one of the tastiest brews I have had in a while.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - AUG 25, 2007
22 oz. bomber. Pours a glowing, very cloudy, orange-tinted brown. It is almost opaque from haze and, held up to the light, looks like the color of caramel with bright orange highlight on both sides. The head pours very thick and is a yellowish off-white. It slowly fades into a medium-sized cake that laces the glass heavily. The aroma combines smooth, herbal, citrus hops; light honey and crystal malts; and a funky, bread aroma that slightly resembles a savory breakfast biscuit. The taste is a nice blend of sweet malts (lots of caramel, pound cake, toffee, and honey) with a beautiful flavor of fresh hops - like they were just harvested from the vine yesterday. The hops give such an amazingly smooth, herbal character - like a subtle hint of pepper and menthol providing the soft backdrop to lemon and orange peel. The finish is very full and quite sweet. The mouthfeel is very thick and full-bodied. The carbonation level provides just the right amount of creaminess and tingle on the tongue. Overall, this was pretty good. It is a bit thick in the mouth, but other than that it is amazing. I think it is a bit underrated here.

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2010 Draft @ Elysian taproom, Seattle. Deep golden maibock color with thick off-white head. Brightly hopped aroma has a northwest character. Soft palate with tons of hops and a big but gentle body. Uprate from previous sample:
I really liked this beer when I sampled it at the Great Canadian Beer Festival in 2001. I found it crisp, hoppy, and smooth. It was one of my favorites at that particular festival but since it was a long time ago and only a small sample, my review should be weighted accordingly. I need to try this one again. 7-3-8-3-14

Draught sampler at Elysian Brewpub, Seattle. Clear orange-copper colour. Aroma is warm and well-hopped. Mouthfeel is thin and crisp. Flavour is big and warm, with lots of citric and flowery hops. A little hot, but an enjoyable warmer.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 31, 2007
22oz bomber. Slightly hazy bright pink copper hue. Two fingers of creamy off-white head. Fruity hop aromas with nuances of orange citrus, raspberries and grapefruit. Subtle notes of vanilla and malt aromas. Full bodied with a sticky cloying palate. Good alcohol burn. Smooth malts, crisp and medium. Bitter lively effervescence. Second pour produces thick, tight cavernous head. Definitely activated the dregs from the depths. Still rather hazy. The malts shine more so as the beer warms. Smooth malts. Easy, but still with a nice accompaning burn. Nice fruity esters. Piney sticky hops. Nice clinging head. Solid brew!

20 oz. bottle. Big hop nose that faded over time. As it warmed up developed unique citrusy character (orange/grapefruit) in the finish.

Bottle. Poured deep amber with thick white head. Aroma of bread, malt and toast. Malty with big hoppy taste and finish. Not heavy like many winter ales.
