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.

LeftCoastRider (110) - , Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pours a clear, dark gold with a moderate white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of biscuits. Tastes somewhat Germanic. Actually, tastes more like a strong pilsner than a pale ale. Good carbonation. Decently bitter. Overall, a decent ale that is an interesting marriage of a German pilsner and an American IPA.
