COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Fatehunter (2408) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Poured a half finger of head on a medium amber colored body. The aroma is caramel and honey. Pleasant. The taste starts out with mild bitterness, moves to chalky bitterness and finishes sour. A bit disjointed. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. A descent pale ale.

BillWyce (1045) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Pours amber color with a light haze to it. 2-finger off-white head. Mild citrus aroma with a light caramel note underneath. Medium body, lightly oily. Dry finish. Mild citrus hops flavor with a biscuit malt base at the back.

Juls66250 (43) - Montpellier, FRANCE - JAN 9, 2017
Robe cuivrée surmontée d’une mousse blanche. Le nez est peu puissant, légèrement malté, houblonné, légèrement fruité et résineux. Le gout reflète bien le nez avec une finale amère bien équilibré qui donne un aspect bien frais à cette biere très agréable à boire.

sinfull (1521) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Clear, amber color. Medium-sized , white head . Malt dominates in aroma with some fruity notes. Malty taste , balanced by decent hoppy bitterness. Bitter and astringent finish. Fair pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ladnewton (1847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle at home on 25th December 2016, received as gift. Pours copper with thick rapid diminishing creamy white non lacing foam. Very fruity aroma with berries and sweet malts. A pungent taste in-mouth, with sweet citrus, yeasty notes and astringency. Tart citrus in the finish. Full-on carbonation and medium body.

JorgeLee (1916) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2016
Bottle, Tommi Burger. Drunk from bottle, colour unknown. Quite a malty pale ale, nicely avoiding caramel harshness, with a modest but refreshing fruity hop note. Medium to light finish. I wasn’t overexcited about trying this, but it’s actually ok. Could be nice on cask, actually.

Myonlyvice (207) - DENMARK - DEC 2, 2016
Sample. Clear light golden with foamy head that fades quickly. Cascade hops are prominent in the aroma. Citrus and pine i think. Not my thing

crossovert (11794) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2016
330ml bottle. Murky amber pour. Aroma is spaghetti os, lime zest, and celery salt. Falvor is savory english yeast, sweet biscuit, grass, orange. Not great.

Az APA jelleg még úgy ahogy rendben van, de az a kőizű bazaltvíz... Stoned.

nuplastikk (5901) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2016
11.2oz bottle. Somewhere between an APA and an ESB. Toasty, easy malt tones. Pretty classic taste, a touch antiquated, but well made enough to be enjoyable still. OK.

Poprawny pale ale - nic ponadto. Trochę karmelu, trochę chmielu, trochę owoców. W sumie nawet nie wiem co dodać. Dobrze komponował się z sosem pomidorowym i makaronem. Duży plus za świetną prezencję.
