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.

Bottled. Pours a clear, pale amber colour with a small off-white head that doesn’t last. Hops and pine dominate both on the nose and in the mouth, while the flavours are very dry, yet very well balanced and clean. A very good American-style IPA.

Bought at an airport in Iceland and given to me as a present. Smells malty and ever so hoppy. Pours a medium brown with a tinge of red. Small foamy head that disappears immediately into heavy lacing. Taste is sweet, malty and a slight hop note. Good carbonation. Next to no aftertaste. Overall this beer went down smooth and was well balanced. I was very happy with this beer, and would buy it/try it again. MB. The Beer "Bear" on

Sven1973 (436) - GERMANY - MAY 17, 2017
Flasche gekauft bei Craftbeer-shop.com Goldener, klarer Körper, nur eine kleine Schicht Schaum Aroma: Hopfig, leichte Malzsüsse, ein wenig Frucht im Hintergrund Geschmack: unauffällig, etwas Getreide, wenig bitter, wenig malzig. Bitterer werdend zum Ende und blumiger. Ganz spät im Nachgeschmack dann plötzlich auch noch der Hauch von Karamell.

AssKicker (431) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 30, 2017
Couleur légčrement ambrée ŕ peine voilée, mousse plutôt correcte. Nez qui fait d’abord penser ŕ une pils germanique, mais qui vire ensuite un peu sur le caramel. Saveur que l’on retrouve également en bouche avec quelques notes d’orange. Corps léger, carbo correcte, petite amertume en fin de bouche. Rien de fifou mais c’est plutôt agréable ŕ boire.

Enjoyed at BTBF 2017. Clear orange color, light head. Sweet grainy aroma, light hops. No esters. Sweet toasty malt flavor. Easy finish.

Karmel, chmiel, trochę cytrusów. Coś pomiędzy APA i ESB. Nic nadzwyczajnego.

It pours dark golden with an off white head. Head retention is moderate. Aroma is a bit musty with some caramel and somewhat of an herbal quality. There is caramel in the flavor with a hint of roast. It does have an herbal quality to it with slight spruce and grass. It is moderately bitter with the overall balance favoring the malt. It has a slight bite to it as well. Overall, this is a ale balanced toward the malt but with a decent level of support from the hops.

Bottle. Light amber, very clear with medium, white and not very stable head and some lacing. Aromas quite light, some pilsner and iron tones with hops coming out later on. Taste is sweet, malty with quite pleasant, oily mouthfeel. Medium body and light to medium bitterness, (too) high carbonated. Acceptable.
