Miguel brought it to me from Iceland. In Teku glass. At dinner, with bratwurst sausages. Very correct. Pleasant and easy drinking, with nothing out of place. Better than our industrial lagers

Not too bad. Slightly sweet aroma. It has a pretty clean taste with a slight hoppy bitterness. Pale yellow with light carbonation.

aracauna (3501) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2004
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.

Dorqui (2188) - 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.

Korngul tĺkete med tynt hvitt skum. Malt og noe humle lukt, frisk og god lager. Ikke sĺ mye mer ĺ si om denne, men morsomt med nytt land :-)

33cl bottle. Quite average, but taste is a bit sourish or sweetish. Good. I like it.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2005 re-rate : well, sure it has got corn in it, and sure, it´s lacking alot of character, infact, it´s lacking a bit of everything, BUT there´s nothing wrong with this, very easy going brew

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.
