Bríó var fyrsti bjórinn frá Borg Brugghúsi. Bríó er svokallađur pilsner-bjór en ólíkt ţví sem margir Íslendingar halda er pilsner ekki léttöl, heldur ljós lagerbjór frá borginni Pilsen í Bćheimi (í vestanverđu Tékklandi). Ţessi bjórstíll leit fyrst dagsins ljós á miđri 19. öld og varđ svo vinsćll, ađ megniđ af ţeim bjór sem drukkinn er í dag er á einn eđa annan hátt byggđur á ţessum stíl. Notađ er ţýskt humlayrki, Mittelfrüh frá Hallertau í Bavaríu, í bjórinn. Ţessi humlar gefa mjög einkennandi bragđ og ljúfa lykt. Auk humla er notađ ljóst Pilsen malt og undirgerjandi ger.

tbonde (139) - DENMARK - APR 22, 2015
33cl bottle@Blue Lagune, Iceland@appox 5 degrees C. Pours yellow-gold with correct white head for a pilsener. Quite hoppy aroma for a standard macro with just a little citrus in there. Good, hoppy taste, also felt in the somewhat bitter aftertaste, but the malt of a standard pilsner is stil very present. A good macro product with more hops than most standard thirst quenching beers.

mcberko (8738) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
On tap at Hlemmur Square, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Nose smells like a macro lager, with corn and cereal malt. Flavour is along the same lines, with corn and cereal malt, followed by soapy floral hops. Interesting for a pale lager - decent stuff.

MunBro (735) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Pale hazy orange pour with a fizzy head. Has a nice grassy hop profile with some nice malty backbones. Not terribly exciting, though.

Rune (9111) - Tromsř, NORWAY - MAR 8, 2015
330m bottle provided by djoeye. Lacing rings down the glass from a fair white head. Yellow-gold coloured body. Rather inviting aroma of grassy hops with a citric touch. Mixed taste of citrus, pale malts and hay. Harsh bitter ending. Soft carbonated. Food friendly. Decent pilsener (Tromsř 08.03.2015).
