    There's a new beverage center about a half a mile from my house and they have a few brands of Icelandic White Ale stocked. I was going to give one a go; has anybody here ever drank one? I'm asking for opinions from beer connoisseurs.

    I know they have Einstok; is that the best of the lot?

    I have not tasted it but it looks like its a wheat beer, which means its light with coriander/peppery tones. ABV, 5.2, not too heavy. Gets a fairly goods review. Not a big fan of wheat beers, preferring Pale Ales, Indian Pale Ales, Porters and Stouts.

    Thanks for the link. One of the comments: ". I would definitely recommend this as an ice cold beer on a warm late spring day." It's 75 F and I was going to sit on my front lawn and have a few cold ones while listening to a game. Sounds like it might work.

    I misread this thread title as "Icelandic White Whale". So at first, I thought people were making beer from whales somehow.

    Although Belugas (White Whales) are not commonly seen around Iceland there have been reports of a few "stragglers" seen in the vicinity.

    What is ABV? Oh, never mind, Alcohol By Volume.

    The store wound up having an Einstok Porter (I don't care for Porters) and a Pale Ale as well as the White Ale. I went for the Pale Ale; it was okay but nothing special and quite pricey - $15 a six pack.

    I'll probably give the White Ale a shot at some point. Thanks for the input.
