This is Viking’s answer to Egils Gull. Gull means Gold. It tastes exactly like Egils Gold, too. It’s like the regular icelandic lager, just with a hint more metallic taste and slightly more hops of the herbal variety.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
A light yellow beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is of corn and metal and so is the flavor with a dry end.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
(12oz can) Icelandic fizzy-water. Smells of wheat beer when it spoils, Corn, stale, lactic and pale malt. Malty flavour with chalk and banana. I want to say "crisp" but no - it isn’t. Thanks to Lubiere for sharing a piece of Iceland.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow fizzy, light hazy lager with a froathy head. Wheaty malt with notes of sulfur. Thin corn and malt taste with chalky notes and very light hops. Thin and watery. Still, thanks for this Icelandic find, Piscator.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Far better than I thought it would be. It’s pale yellow with a fair amount of carbonation and a slightly herbal hops aroma. It strikes a nice balance between the bittering hops and a fair amount of malt flavor. A decent lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very clear pale gold color, but the color isn't dull. The head is wimpy and fade completely in very little time. The hop smell is similar to a Heinekin or Beck's. The flavor is light, with a light bitterness in the back. Nothing special.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light colour with a medium head. Moderately skunky aroma. Also has a soured taste, rather like Becks. At least I have now had an Icelandic beer thanks Mal3.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2004 This stuff looks really nice, golden with a good head. Skunky smell (is that possible from a can?) and an indifferent taste. Had a few and they certainly did not grow on me.
Re-rate, from a bottle this time. More watery looking, with less head than the last time. Still, this isn't a bad mainstream lager, just nothing special.
