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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(can) Clear yellow colour with a mid-sized diminishing frothy white head. Very shy and slightly sweet corny aroma, slightly acidic with poor traces of hops. Watery mouthfeel, light bodied, mild bitter flavour with a sourish touch, fizzy mouthfeel; dry, slightly bitter, slightly tart & slim finish. Pretty poor brew, but I was grateful to get a six-pack of Gull at one of the rare Vínbúđ before crossing the Sprengisandur in August 2004.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can (a gift from MoritzF): Pale golden, mid-sized clean white rocky head, lively carbonation; sweet grainy nose with a touch of lemon and some traces of a grassy hoppiness; light bitter flavour; mild bitter-citrousy finish. Ther’s nothing wrong with this, but they are a little bit too proud of their clean icelandic water: they put too much of it into the brew......

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(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
