3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Another fantastic beer from this creative brewery. To make a beer this bold in Iceland is trully remarkable. Dark orange with a huge head. Hoppy aroma, and very hoppy considering the style. Loads of citrus, fruits, oranges from the hops. Nicely balanced. Maybe near perfect session beer? NICE!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Very fruity aroma and taste. A bit bitter but nothing the fruitiness can’t overcome.
My favorite Icelandic beer at the moment.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. High fluffy and lasting olff-white head. Hazy dark orange body with a lot of bubbles. Malty frruoty aroma - a bit of oranges - but also with a touch of pepper. Flavor is far more bitter than expected and has a somewhat metallic sharpness.Cannot quite figure out the spices but guess it is a combination of coriander and juniper. Low carbonation and a long aftertaste.
