2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear amber with a creamy looking toffee colored head. Aroma is sweet malts and faint notes of dried fruit. Taste is abit bland, with corn and a too faint maltyness. Hints of cardboard and veggies as well. Somewhat dry with a light bitter finish.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2013 Draft at 73 Restuarant & Cafe This is their Easter beer that is a seasonal. 73 is one of four bars that serve Kaldi in Reykjavik. The bock poured a deep red amber with a tan head. This a good looking beer. This is a malty beer with very little hops bitterness. The medium body bock had soft carbonation. The finish was smooth with a slight sweet aftertaste. Great session beer.

Svag maltig doft. Söt maltsmak med metallisk eftersmak. Nja, behöver inte riktigt dricka den igen, men kul att ha “tickat” den.

Bottle, bought in Reykjavik Iceland in March 2011.
Amber with a small head. Sweet with malt, bread, fruit and some notes of grass. Not that exciting, on the thin side.

A bit fruity, caramely malts with hist of roast and perhaps chocolate. Some hops too, I’d guess.
Feels a bit blunt in the mouth, but nicely round if not full. The malts are mild, but full-ish, and the hops nearly overpower them. The finish is full and grassy which lifts this one up nicely.
I applaud Kaldi for this effort and it gets my highest score ever of an Icelandic beer. Cheers.

Bottle at Rover, Göteborg; great generosity of Pelle
Amber color; creamy head. Nice, mild aroma of caramel and Saaz. Medium body strength; it has a dry caramel flavor, with some cereals, and the hop is a bit lost here. Pleasant.
