3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great beer. Comes in a "tall" can, which makes it a good bargain. Seriously, any beer that is inspired by Viking folklore is automatically a winner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a pretty cloudy amber color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose is a bit bready and caramely, with just a bit of grassy hop bitterness coming through. Taste is bitter and slightly harsh with a bit of caramel popping through. Feels quite bubbly.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One pint can. Reddish Amber, more burnt orange really, with a thick off white mattress of a head that retains magnificently. Massive malty nose, Malteasers, hazelnut, undertones of marmalade. The palate has all those sugary malts, a bit more of a nutty and bready character, ending with moderate bitterness. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Can) Hmm. Smells much better than it tastes. A very intense astringent, bitter aftertaste which is weird for the style. Flavor is a little thin. I’d rather not drink this again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from tallboy to glass. Amber red hue with creamy tan head that lingered. Aroma is caramel, cereal, toffee, bread, spice hops. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a nice bitterness in the following. Overall this is a nice brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
473ml can pours a slightly hazy amber color with a 2 finger light beige head that retains quite well and reveals some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and herbs with some roasted notes. Taste is a bold herbal and citrus hop bitterness with an underlying grainy and caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with nice carbonation that tickles the palate nicely. A very nice red ale with a higher ABV with a well balanced nature. Recommended.
