Formerly Egils Premium.
Egils Premium beer is the product of a unique effort that has been the characteristik mark of The Egill Skallagrímsson 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.
