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.

AssKicker (411) - 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.

Cavie (4638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2017
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.

hman43 (1444) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - APR 22, 2017
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.

rafax (254) - POLAND - APR 21, 2017
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.

wheresthepath (2285) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2017
Bottle at the William Robert Loosley, High Wycombe. Light orangey amber with a light fizz and a thin white head. Cardboard is the most prominent flavour although rather sweet and clammy caramel and a bit of orange do make an attempt to get through. There’s no crispness, no freshness, no passion, no depth- this tastes like one of those cheap imitation APAs that the big brewers have started making. Having been impressed with this brewer’s doppelbock that I’d had previously, I was disappointed by how poor this was in comparison. Really didn’t enjoy this.

21-03-17 // 330ml bottle. Clear amber golden beer with a solid white head. Light hoppy nose. Taste is medium sweet, medium bodied. Malty with a subtle hop note, light fruity, grassy. Solid Pale Ale.

Light amber with medium off-white head. Slight malty aroma. Quite strong bitterness, some sourness and malty bitterness on the background. Bitter aftertaste.
