Derek brought, actually not bad. light refreshing not alot of flavor, but a little hop and malt in there certainly better then say MGD.

Bottle thanks to Paul (sorta thanks). First off donít drink this after having ingested the juicy remains of pickled eggs...sorta destroys the palate...although truth be told it wouldnít have mattered anyways and may have helped. Slightly hazy pale yellow with an off white head. Capable lager aroma with some stale caramel, a bit too sweet at the start and become almost cloying (for a lager) on the finish. Was hoping to have a crisp, clean delicious 10000 yr old beer but this was not it...o well. Novelty was interesting though...if you ignore the environmental impact.

Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Just about the palest pale lager I've ever tried. Hardly any colour, aroma or taste, but it oddly works. Reminds me of putting snow in my mouth and letting it melt. I can see why people who favour strong stouts or IPAs would have no use for this beer, but it is bizarrely refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had to try it, come on, itís made from iceberg water. Draft very light pale yellow. Plenty of champagne bubbles. Nose minimal sweet malt. Taste typical pale lager, but minimal skunk. Very light.

341ml blue bottle. Looks and smells likes apple juice. No real head. Sort of tastes like watered down apple juice....if anything. Very, very bland.

Extremely light beer, not a load of aroma. Refreshing though, and the blue bottle somehow makes it better. No off-aromas or off-tastes, so I would suggest this over many macro-lagers.

Pours a very clear yellow colour, with a medium foamy white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smell is pretty much non-existant. Flavour is pretty corny and a little vegetabley. Cabonation is pretty much right on, but it’s a bit watery. Not much special about this beer, really.

The only real novelty to this beer is the fact that it's made from an iceberg. There's nothing exceptional about it. Nothing remarkable, nothing worth having again. It is a Wonder bread beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pours up a light straw yellow, with a fairly vigorous carbonation. head is bubbly, white and completely gone in a second. quite aromatically challenged, with touches of sweet malt and vegetables on the nose. the flavour doesnít provide much more pleasant and retains the strange syrupy palate of Quidi Vidiís other lagers. I canít belive they market this as their flagship, "premium" beer. why is this so expensive??

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 After becoming more beer aware, I now realize I was a bit to lenient on this product mainly because it was a local product. To be honest, itís not as good as I thought it was the first time I reviewed it. I still like it much better than most of Quidi Vidiís other products though. Aroma: slight smell of corn (meh), Pours light urine color witbh a quick evaporating head, slightly sweet taste with a tweet aftertase. Not too offensive, but not overly great either.
