Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a pilsener golden with a small, white head. Lovely floral, hoppy nose that doesn’t last long though. Medium body with sweet malt and a vague underlying tartness from what I believe is brewing cereal. Very discreet - almost absent - bitterness. 260206

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Pours gold with some fizzyness, but no real head. Smells of grass and flowers with hints of sugar. Tastes breaddy with some spicey notes but otherwise watery.

Dorqui (2105) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 5, 2005
Canned 0,50L. Yellow pale color, much watery, good fizz and liveliness. Modest and compact foam, but good persistence. Simple scent of alcohol, fresh grass and malty, little hop. Amazing taste. Much prickly, fresh with a light tip of anise. Moderate and pleasant bitter, fresh malty final.

Canned. Pale golden. Sugary sweetness dominates the aroma, there are also notes of boiled eggs. Flavour is a bit sticky sweet and is big on Co2. The alcohol feel is a bit disturbing.

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.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2005
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.

CapFlu (4518) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2005
(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.
