EINSTOK OLGERD ICELANDIC PALE ALE

Einstok Olgerd Icelandic Pale Ale. After the disappointment of Viking Pilsner from Iceland, I thought a Pale Ale may be more to my liking.

An American Pale Ale, no less. Looks inviting; good fruity hops aroma.

The first sip is good, but there is an unidentifiable nasty bite on the back palate. My wife, Chris suggests polar bear piss, as this is brewed 60 miles south of the Arctic Circle. I’m not sure, but it disappears to leave an good hoppy Pale Ale.

It has a nice dry bitter finish. This beer  is reminiscent of Alpha, but doesn’t quite make it.

I am sure that Inspector Erlendur would drink this.

 

7/10
