Shiny metallic copper in color with thin, airy head. A little lacing. Clarity is great. Light coppery malt, some biscuit but nothing really stands out in the nose. Faint hint of hops, but I've no idea what kind. Thin flavors, some nuttiness, a little biscuit, then it turns bitter. Copper penny bitterness takes over. No real pine or grassy bitterness. Mostly metallic.Thin mouthfeel with a dry finish.
As you can tell from my description, I wasn't really feeling this. It isn't a good sign when you are describing the lack of flavors or aromas. Pass.

Poured from a bottle into a mason jar.
Appearance: A deep orange/Amber color. Minimal head.
Smell: Not great... biscuit?
Taste: Definitely made up for the aroma. I get full flavors of honey and grapes, earthy, mild orange peel/citrus zest and some jasmine. Medium malt and light hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a very nice crisp finish. The finish is the best part for me. Sweet with a very small bit of bitterness at the very end.
Overall: I like this beer. Its not the best but its still pretty darn good. I tend to shy away from pale ales but I think this one has a wonderful fruity flavor profile. Will drink again.

31st August 2012: Icelandic or should I say ‘Einstok’ tasting evening at a mates house. He’d bought two bottles of four different Einstok brews. All poured carefully into a ‘Straffe Hendrik’ badged chalice.
Second beer was a 33cl bottle of this: misty dull amber body with no head at all.
The smell was malts firstly and then a weaker cereal/fruity aroma.
The taste was initially semi-sweet malty molasses then a bitter, dry finish arrived as the hops asserted themselves.
Interesting without testing your taste buds, not what I was expecting (in a good way) at all.
