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.

Refreshing, no off flavors, malt is not as prominent, but a solid pepper and floral hops.

Straw-coloured and bright. Citrus in the aroma. Tastes metallic and thin with little of the bready character I want from a pilsner.

Tall can from the BC government liquor store. It’s kind of cool to crack it open and realize you’re drinking Icelandic water for the first time. Other than that, yeah it’s fresh noble hops, mineral flavour and marbly mouthfeel, a Europils, reminds me of Becks.

This pilsner just started showing up in British Columbia’s government liquor stores. I’m from Victoria, where they are a multitude of microbreweries from this city and from Vancouver. This area, known generally as the Pacific Northwest, also includes hundreds of great breweries in Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington, both in the USA. We know beer, and this one is one of the finest examples of a pilsner I have ever tasted. Maybe it’s the Icelandic water that makes the difference, but this one has found the perfect balance, body, finish and taste. At $2 for a 500ml can, it’s a deal. I’m going out and getting a couple of cases. Definitely bumped Carlsberg off as "Probably the best tasting beer in the world."

pours light straw with thick long lasting white head. nice lacing. Aroma is a little malty but mostly spicy and floral. Taste is similar with a nice mouthfeel. Very nice pilsner

I don’t get all the low reviews of this delightful Pilsener. It’s an exquisite beer, understated, to be sure, but beautifully balanced between light malty sweetness and brisk hoppy bitterness. A perfect session beer, lacking nothing in quality and very drinkable. It’s basically just a really superb version of the German-style Eurolager that most of the EU pumps out into the global market. This is an unpretentious, quietly brilliant Pilsener that North American brewers, after years of concocting ever bigger, stronger, more outrageous beers, need to seriously study and emulate. 4.8%, totally delicious, and your girlfriend will like it as much as you do.medium body,

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2014
330ml can This is a pilsener style beer that you see all over Iceland. The white head and clear gold color are very inviting. Aroma of caramel malts with no bitterness. The beer has a light body with fizzy carbonation. A refreshing beer with a smooth dry finish.

Bottle. Pours deep yellow with thin fizzy white head. Little aroma but decent pilsner with light hop finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It was strongly suggested that I pick up this new micro beer hailing from Iceland when it recently showed up in our government stores. Brio may very well be the best, purest, PIlsner I have ever had. The aroma is filled with a awesome doughy bread like nose. Super clean and refreshing on the palate it has notes of citrus bitterness capped with a nice sweetness but not overly sweet - just perfect. Too many Pilsners today are overly malty and do not reflect a proper Pilsner. I read over a few reviews on Brio and I think most reviewers do know what a Pilsner is supposed to be - in my humble opinion Brio is the new benchmark to beat when it comes to Pilsners!
