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

Golden clear with vanishing head. Malty aroma with a hint of noble European hops. Delicate taste. Pretty ok for a lager.

berkshirejohn (5681) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2015
33cl bottle at Keflavķk Airport. A typical Eurolager; straw coloured, thick white head; cereal aroma and taste; and a light bitter finish. No off-tastes, but nothing endearing either.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Rating #1261 30.09.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg. This was my Iceland tick. Clear, goldy-yellow colour with a bubbly white foam, mild retention. Smell is a little vicious, skunky hops and grains. Taste is grainy, lightly hopped quiite smooth, with light carbonation - just rough all the way around.

Can. Tried in an Iceland Air flight to Iceland. Pretty average Euro fizz. Thirst quenching but that’s about all.

tbonde (289) - DENMARK - APR 22, 2015
33bottle and draught@Blue Lagune, Iceland@appox 5 degrees C. Pours golden yellow with white head. Aroma is light, of bread and malt. Standard lager a little on the sweet and malty side, but not without taste and a crisp bitterness from the hops at the end. Not very interesting, but a good thirstqencher. A well balanced lager without any off tastes or other vices.

Can on Iceland Air 757.Pours clear weak golden with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet corn and mild grains. Taste is sweet sugary, just a wee bit dry hops at the finish. Standard Euro lager.

Clear golden pour with a fine white head. Ok lacing. Nice ok plain pale lager. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Malty and mild herbal flavor and aroma.
