Light in flavour. Sweet and slightly malty. Too thin to be very enjoyable. Icelandic Rolling Rock? bland

Can to pint glass Lets do this right. It was a gift, but I think I’m getting a coutry tick, so why not. I KNOW what I’m getting here. Smells like apple juice and wheat. Looks great...clear yellow with a huge creamy white head. Taste is crap. Or closer, urine. I’m sure glad its cold. I get a bit of the apple juice, a lot of wheat and hay. This sucks. But if I were on the lash on the way to a football match, then sure, I’d drink this. It isn’t really any worse than any other ’premium’ lagers I’ve had from Macros.

Senap (337) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2014
Enligt etiketten är den mångfaldigt prisbelönt. Svårt att skilja från andra internationella lagets. Helt enkelt lite trist.

Bottle at en Öl och Whiskeymässa 2014, 2014-04-11 Göteborg AR: citrus, caramel, bread AP: clear golden, no head F: fizzy, cardboard box, wee warming feeling (probably rated this one to high?)

ljthiessen (328) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 14, 2014
Can. Pale yellow pour, slightly cloudy with a white head. Grainy aroma. Flavour is grainy malt with a lightly crisp hop edge. Average mouthfeel for a lager. Not the worst lager I've had, but I wouldn't drink it again.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 9, 2014
Can, on the plane en route to Iceland aboard IcelandAir. Medium gold colour, short lived head. Sweet grainy and featureless.

bjakk (319) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - MAR 22, 2014
Yellow, clear with white head that goes away quickly. Strong skunk smell when the bottle is opened, it mixes with malt when the glass is sniffed. sweet, with a hint of malt, Skunk, mild bitterness in the aftertaste, high in carbon but watery.

Berard (273) - Salem, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep yellow with fizzy bright white head that lingers. Super carbonated with Pilsner flavor that's a bit sour. It's fine not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Actually quite crisp and clean with a bit of a spicy hop hit. Nice and grassy with light citrus notes. Pours a bright golden yellow with a sopay white head. The nose is light and toasty with bready grains. Overall a well balanced, lightly crisp lager.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Tap. Pale malt and sulfur water aroma (but that’s water in Iceland for you). Eggy, minerallic, lemony, acidic, a bit sourish and grainy towards the back. Decent frothiness, the carbonation is in good shape, if only the malt were not husky and tasting of burnt popcorn. DMS / kraut becomes more apparent as it warms.
