Ernest (6345) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Bottle from Vinbudin in Reykjanesbaer (BB Oct 2014). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (molasses, bread, toasted grain), lightly hoppy (apricot), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Another mild, easy-going Icelandic brew, but decent enough with no glaring flaws.
