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

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.

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.

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.

MoritzF (8639) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 11, 2006
(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.

pivnizub (9150) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 8, 2006
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......

Papsoe (25076) - 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
