Erpur (1) - Vestmannaeyjar, ICELAND - JAN 7, 2011 does not count
This medium body beer is joyfully extravagant and sligtly sweet. Caramel-nutsy in malt, strongly bitter and florally hoppy. A lot of hops here, American origin in part. (Cascade?). Fun beer.

By far the best beer in Iceland. An interesting mix of English Ale and Cascade hops

A great red ale from Ölvisholt Brugghús. It will be interesting to taste the beer on tab, but until now it has only be available in bottles. Really tasty well-bodied ale.

One of Ölvisholts best. Roasted malts resulting in a slight caramel with some dried fruits.

What a decent ale. The best and most flavorful Icelandic beer so far! I have been looking forward to this one. Small head, nice and hoppy aroma, medium bitterness and nicely malted. Medium filling and long lasting finish. Congratulations to Ölvisholt! The only brewer in Iceland (so far) who has the guts to be a bit creative.

omhper (19374) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2009
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms, Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Clear copper colour, rich firm head. Orangey perfumy nose with roasty malt underneath. Mid-sweet with fairly soft mouthfeel. A crystallic grainy heart surrounded by cottony caramel dipped if floral orangey hops. Salty finish with marked but non-assaulting bitterness. Very fresh and well made. Iceland has become a beer hot spot!

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Enjoyed this one very much. Has a nice caramel malty flavour while not being to heavy. The perfect beer with a nice grilled steak.

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - AUG 6, 2010
courtesy of Florian Ruch - clear ruby-amber colour with a beige foam left but a bit chaotic; a fair hoppy aroma with notes of prune and caramel; a fair malt body, sweet and gently sticky; a decent bitterness which lasts long in an aftertaste of prune and flowers; pretty dry - very good one

Geiserich (3385) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle: Reddish amber color, creamy off-white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma with lots of cascade hops. Also fuity malty and light sweet notes. Flavor is malty, hints of caramel, light sweetness and a good amount of fruity, lemonlike and medium bitter hops. Medium bitter, dry and hoppy end. Long finish. An amazing surprise from Iceland.

500ml bottle from Reykjavik. Shared at Rating Session 22.06.11 Pours a dark red/dark clear amber and a big foamy head. Very pleasant aroma of orang, malt, hops and herbs. Nutty, roasted coffee and some yeast, anise, cookie and citrus.
