visionthing (2892) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2014
33cl can (as "Gull Lite") from Vínbúđin, Borganes. Pours pale golden with a small, white head. Mild grainy aroma with notes of cooked vegetables and hardly anything else. Standard pale lager - watery and slightly grainy with a light bitterness. Gull? Not in my book. And I wonder what all the medals are doing on the can. Not much to write home about....

Pale blond color. Light malt and corn aroma. The flavor is almost missing; dry, with low bitterness.

DuffMan (6974) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Served from a can on the IcelandAir flight back to Canada. Very similar to regular Gull, just more watery and perhaps a touch sweeter. Like nearly every light lager produced in a large commercial brewery.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Can in hotel room, Reykjavik. Clear golden appearance with a white head and decent lacing. Fairly bitter, a little skunky, grainy aroma. Very unbalanced. Simultaneously very sweet pale malty and bitter herbal hoppy flavors as well as an undesirable metallic note. Pass.

gunnar (5603) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2011
Can, courtesy of Sigmund. Pours clear golden with a huge creamy white head. Grainy malty aroma with some wet cardboard. Taste is sweet malty with a dry end. Not too bad, considering this is lite..
