Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a clear medium gold with a big white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweet pale malts and some fruity esthers. Taste is sweet pale malts, fruity esthers and a little bit of hop character. Overall a nicely balanced strong lager.

500ml red can kindly shared by Elisabeth and Stefan. Clear body that has got a yellow-gold colour. Two fingers white head with some retention. Rings of lacing. Sweet aroma of grain. Sweet pale malty taste, notes of alcohol. Dry ending. Non-offensive, anonymous stuff (Tromsų, 20.08.2012).

adnielsen (10490) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Can in hotel room, Reykjavik. An Icelandic beer just wouldn’t be complete without tasting an Icelandic malt liquor. Yum! Clear, golden yellow appearance with a fluffy, white head. Fairly tame, somewhat boozy, a bit sharp bitter, grainy aroma. Incredibly hard to drink, rich, boozy, thick, sugary malty, nasty, skunky flavor. This is some horrible shit

Skinnyviking (8904) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2009
Can. High and creamy white lasting head. Clear yellow body. Weak malt straw aroma. Sweet and weak barley malt flavor without much hops bitterness, low carbonation, short afteertaste.

yngwie (16523) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 27, 2009
Can. A clear, almost golden beer with a finger-thick white head. Pale malts and fruits on the nose, with some alcohol and a grassy touch. Quite weak. Grainy and fruity flavor with some alcohol. Not much bitterness to brag about. Dry, full-bodied and a bit warming. There’s some piney and grassy bitterness in the finish. A clear beer, but dead boring. Can’t really see any use for beers like this. (090418)

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2008
Standard lager colored with little white head. Sweet fruity and malty aroma with slight alcohol, thin caramel also present. Medium bodied. Flavor is more grainy with sweet fruits, some biting estery note also present. Aftertaste has thin alcohol. Well, nothing special.
