Danish: Denne Pale Ale fra Grønland er omhyggeligt håndbrygget med det reneste grønlandske vand - og tilsat smeltet indlandsvis, samt markedets bedste kvalitetsmalt, humle og gær. Som vides er en Mammut større og stærkere end enhver anden elefant. Denne Mammut er tårnhøj og skulderbred i kvalitet, brygget med respekt for den klassiske Pale Ale tradition.

rwgould (329) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - SEP 8, 2012
0.3cl bottle from Viti. Pours a cloudy orange with minimal carbonation, sparse white head. Aroma: spicy, hints of orange, cloves, cinnamon. Palate: Thicker bodied than expected, slightly oily, dryish finish. Taste: Fairly bitter. Not watery or thin, and not that simple, but not a lot of complex flavour here. Would buy it again, but not at $8/bottle.

Ferris (2017) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle - Orange citrus, bread and some yeast. Clear orange with a nice frothy white head. Grains, caramel and a citrus acidity. Mild bitterness with a clean finish. Alcohol is barely present. Not a bad beer, but a little bland for a strong ale. I could drink this, but in this category there are so much better.

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It’s a clear, dark golden beer with a dense, off-white head of finger-thick height. The aroma is fruity and lightly caramel-ish, decent, but rather boring. The flavor has an appropriate bitterness, with some pale malts, and fruityness up front. Full to medium body, fruity and lighlty bitter finish. A quite decent beer, and considering the ABV, easy drinkable. 120525

SlackerMads (1243) - DENMARK - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Clear amber with small white head. Aroma is fruity, a bit yeasty, herbal, vegetable. Taste is yeasty and herbal. Medium/light body. Not much aroma hop in this one, reminds more of a strong lager than a pale ale.

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2012
Amber colour, no head. Aroma of malts, dishwasher, candy and cardboard. Sweet flavour, malty, turning into something vegetable. Sweet finish, vegetables, adjunct. Not really your typical Pale Ale.
My guess is this brewery needs a bit more practice to get it’s act together. Still, nice to see that Greenland is getting a more active brewing community.
(From 50cL bottle being shared @ Micro Bar, Reykjavik, Iceland. Thanks for sharing this one with us, Steini. Love this bar!)
