[2303-20090704] 500mL can. Lightly skunky hay aroma. Clear, yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Grainy grassy hay yeast flavour. Light-medium body. Not great, but it’s nice to try something from a new country.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2009
2009-07-04. Pale yellow with a modest foamy head. (2+) Mild muted aroma, pale malts are lightly grainy. Flavour is similar, mild grainy pale malts, light bitterness throughout becomes lightly astringent in the finish. Average to light bodied palate. Can, shared at the cottage by the Bionic Asian from his recent Iceland trip.

gunnfryd (11192) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2009

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2009
Can. A clear, slighlty pale golden beer with a finger thick white head on top. Hayish, grassy nose with some pale malts and a hint of fruity, spicy hops. Medium body with a good carbonation. Dry, with biscuity malts, grassy, spicy hops and some hay. Quite low on bitterness. Short finish with some bitterness and a little maltyness. A quite tasteful one, at least considering the style, but it’s nothing impressing about it. Just a clean, boring lager like many others. (090418)

thewolf (11234) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Voldby Købmandsgård.
Pours pale, clear golden. A big, fizzy, bubbly, white head on top. Aroma is heavy, very skunky, almost like cow... Some hay, malts and brewin cereal. Medium carbonation, quite watery. Flavour is quite metallic, some sweet maltiness, light alcohol and a good dose of citric hops. Not very nice, really.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2009
Thanks to gethinbeer for this one. Very pale straw colour. Very skunky aroma. Fresh malts and a soft hoppiness. Kind of thin-bodied. Light noble hoppiness and a fresh pale malt character. It’s pretty boring, but it isn’t bad.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2008
Tap in Höfn. A decent enough lager. Pretty dry, slightly bready, no adjuncts noticable. A minor amount of crisp hops even show up in the finish. Mostly drinkable with a nice body. Leagues better than its main competitor, Gull.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 26, 2008
Standard lager colored with little vanishing white head. Sweet fruity aroma with slight esters, some floral note also present. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is more hopped with biting carbonation, still nicely soft palate. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Somehow I like this.
