COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a clear golden yellow with a frothy white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, light pil malts and faint fruity esthers. Taste is sweet pale malts, spicy pil malts and some fruity esthers. Overall nice for a macro lager.

visionthing (2799) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2014
50cl can from Vínbúđin, Borganes. Pours clear , quite pale olden with a small, but lasting white head. Did get quite a surprise here, didn’t look at the can so I thought it was just another industrial pale lager, but it was certainly something different. At the closer look I saw it was Borg and that explains a great deal. Fairly mild malty aroma, but with a noticable herbal and lightly grassy notes and hints of citrus. Moderate sweet with mild, but quite pleasant flavours and a decent bitterness. Certainly a decent pilsner in the German tradition. Nothing special, but refreshing, easy to drink and well made.

Clean pale blond color. Some aroma of cereals and malt. Very smooth; delicate malts; the bitterness is a tad low.
Easy but pleasant. Not biting though.

330ml brown bottle poured into a footed Pilsner glass. Appearance is clear golden with a small white head, that dissipated quickly. Aroma of cereal, grass and wheat bread. Flavour of cereal, herbs a hint of spices. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is light bodied, soft texture and average carbonation. Overall a decent straight forward Pilsener with no surprises.
