look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

500mL can (canned 2/19/2013) into an English pint glass. Pours a clear golden color w/ a fluffy white head that leaves behind some lace. Moderate carbonation.

Aroma is sweet and grainy, mildly floral.

Taste follows nose. Sweet, fruity pale malt, floral Old World hops, neutral yeast. Just a hint of bitterness on the finish. Similar to the Gylltur I had yesterday, but with more residual sugars to amp up the ABV.

Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, light and drinkable.

Overall, like the Gylltur, an unremarkable beer you don't have to think about. No need to ever drink this again.

500ml Can

Appearance – Clear yellow colour with a large size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, bread, malts, corn, skunk, alcohol

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and it is a little bit harsh tasting. The flavours include corn, malts, and I can really taste the booze. There is also some grains mixed with an apple sweetness. The beer finishes with malty/boozy slightly harsh aftertaste.

Overall – I've had a few beers from this brewer now, and this one was by far the worst. The taste isn't pleasant and the alcohol is not hidden at all. I wouldn't recommend this beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from 500mL can into a Gouden Carolus chalice.

A: Looks just like all the other Viking lagers -- pale, clear yellow with no head and some bubble streams.

S: Sour grain with a hint of something stronger underneath. Looking at the can, I discover it's 7%, so the smell might be alcohol.

M: Yup, it's alcohol, right up in the front along with a carbonated tang and a mild grain. Middle taste is a sharp continuation (minus the grain) and the aftertaste is dry on the tongue.

M: The alcohol packs an edge I like. Sharp and potent.

D: A little too brazenly strong for my taste. Not a subtle beer, but better than I expected from a Viking brew.
