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.

0,5 l can kindly shared by my beer pal and co-homebrewer Lars Helge. Clear pale golden with a white, 1" rocky head. Aroma reveals very little. Some light malts. Bland beer, light to medium body with gentle carbonation and a turnip-like bitterness.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Can. Fizzy, diminishing white head with big bubbles and a clear, straw yellow body. Aroma of spicy, Saazish hops on top of sweet pils malt. A little musty and funky. Flavor has some metallic hops up front with the spiciness coming next. Malt is sweet and crisp pils with some corn. Body is light, crisp, and dry. Moderate-high carbonation with a light, lingering metallic finish. Overall a decent pale lager. It does what it sets out to do and is inoffensive. Gets better as I drink it.

mansquito (3998) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Some Liquor Store in DC six-pack ($11.99): Pours pale gold with your white head. Aroma is of slight skunk, grains, and a modicum of hops. Taste is pretty similar to Heineken, but perhaps with less of that rotten vegetable flavor. Obviously, this is really easy drinking, but ultimately utterly boring. A disappointing beer for my first sampling of Iceland. Although frankly, I knew what I was getting in to.
