COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
About Packaging Víking Lager Up The most popular draught beer in Iceland for some years, Viking Lager, is now also available in cans. It is pleasantly mild with a slightly sweet flavor. Less filling and more refreshing than many other beers, Víking Lager has an alcohol content of 4,5%, making it ideal for those who prefer a medium-strength beer with less bitterness.

Gul, klar farge med hvitt tynt skum. Lukter malt, søtt og litt sitrus. Lettdrikkelig og noe oljete i munnfølelse. En helt ordinær lager.

Bought from Dan Murphy’s in Adelaide. Clean inoffensive taste,bit of maltiness on the aftertaste. Bordering on the bland. Would probably go down well, icy cold on a hot summer’s day. Bought one bottle out of curiosity and won’t be rushing back to buy anymore.

Jado (529) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - APR 4, 2013
Pours a golden colour with heavy carbonation and topped with a white head that collapses quickly. Not much in the way of aroma, some noble hops and a bit of grain. The taste is inoffensive but bland, with some corn with a light lemony overlay. Pretty refreshing when cold is about the best that can be said for this one.

Bottle 5.6% This enjoyed at the Perl in Reykjavik The pale lager poured a clear gold color with white frothy head. the beer had a fresh taste some hint of bitterness at the finish. The medium body beer had average carbonation. This lager had more taste of hops then most of the Iceland beers. Very drinkable. The bottle had a hiher alcohol then listed here.

adnielsen (9115) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Can in hotel room, Reykjavik. Clear yellow appearance with a bubbly white head. Fairly smooth, grainy, hay aroma. Somewhat sweet, dull bitter hoppy, grainy, straw flavor. One of the better icelandic pale lagers but still not very interesting.
