UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Can bought in the Faroe Islands. Well, a better tasting beer indeed compared to the horrible tasting botteld version one I traded myself to the first time. Local gathering. Golden with a big short lasting head. Aroma of grains and malt with osme bitterness. Fair mouthfeel. Flavour of some sweet maltiness, grains and bitter hops. An ok tasting beer..................

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2007
Straw with a moderate head. The aroma is light with notes of malt, hops and alcohol. The same goes for the flavour, that is pretty watery. The bitterness is however very nice.

Can, 5.6%. Citric aroma. Yellow colour, unstable white head. Thin flavour, but with a little aroma hops. Added sugar?!

Finn (4363) - Tromsř, NORWAY - SEP 12, 2006
Can 0,33l. Some malt in the nose. Colour like dirty water. A small rapidly disappearing white head. A sweet malty flavour with some bitterness in the aftertaste. Thanks to Rune for this gift: My first beer from Iceland.

330ml can on flight FI 325 from Oslo to Reykjavik (31.08.06). Bright straw yellow body with a thin white foam. Slightly malty aroma. Flavour has notes of sweet corn and hops. Thin palate. Lively carbonated.

pivo (2579) - GERMANY - MAY 5, 2006
Light grainy nose, yellow color, fizzy foamy head. Citrus flavor, weak sweet malt middle, dainty bitter. Light and weak overall, but not as bad as expected. Very quick profile overall - goes by before it starts.

bierkoning (10500) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2006
A huge thanks to MoritzF and his father, who brought this beer from Iceland. Light grassy, soapy aroma. Grainy, sweetish flavor. Soapy. A touch of flowery bitterness in the short aftertaste. Thin to medium bodied. Slightly alcoholic for a pale lager.

YogiBeera (2487) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Günther - you are cracking me up, that is too funny! Thanks a lot MoritzF for this rare beer. Can: very light yellow color with a small head and super fizzy carbonation. Sopay and farty nose - the taste is better than expected, but don’t expect super hero qualities. Lght, slighty bitter, watery taste.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 21, 2006
Pint poured in Sircus in Reykjavik Iceland (a bar frequented by Bjork), a very pale colour with a large frothy head, some carbonation. A grassy aroma typical of lagers. The taste is dry and flavourless except for some hints of grassy hops again.
