Formerly Egils Premium.
Egils Premium beer is the product of a unique effort that has been the characteristik mark of The Egill SkallagrÝmsson Brewery for a whole century. The production process is longer, the malt is masked twice and fermantation is slower and last but not least Icelandic barley is used. Altogether this gives Egils Premium a distinct quality of softness and full-bodied taste.

Clear medium gold pour with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweet pale malts and fruity esthers. Taste is sweet crisp pale malts with alot of fruity esthers on the finish... Esther level is too high and kills the beer on the finish.

DuffMan (8000) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle, after our Blue Lagoon swim in gale-force winds and driving needle-like sleet. I drank this straight from the bttle, so Iĺm going to assume it has a standard gold lager appearance. Clean grains, light, with a kiss of grassy hops and a touch of metal in the finish.

Eirikur (376) - hafnarfjordur, ICELAND - JAN 7, 2014
Not bad aroma for this style. Pours a medium dense head, pale golden colour. Semi sweet and rather filling taste with a thicker then normal mouthfeel for this style. Not bad at all.
