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.

Gethinbeer (2429) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2008
On tap in a bar in Reykjavik. Aroma of malt, sweet lager with a citrus finish. Light golden , thin white lace. Citrus in the flavour, bitter and fresh. Little bit of honey in it. I needed a beer and it did the trick.

Meh. It’s an Icelandic beer, one to drink if there’s nothing else available. Boring....

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Light golden with an OK head. The aroma has a light sweetness, notes of malt, wet grain and hints of metal and the same goes for the flavour. Even if it isn’t a pleasure to drink, it’s no wrose than many other mainstream lagers...

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Drank on vacation in Iceland in 2005. Another pale, straw skunky poo lager. Full of corn and other malt replacers. This beer is as funky and dull as they come...well, still better than Budweiser (I think).

coldbrewky (1567) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 2, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2007 Bottle as extra from Maria to grab me Iceland. I had a flashback to the steel reserve I rated earlier this summer. Corn and adjunt nose that is thck and sweet. A big corn and malt push with no dicernable hops at all. Some grassiness but that is probably general funk not t be confused with hops. Body waters up pretty quick for thinner finish. Not absolutly horrible, but not to0 far from 40 Oz. status.

Svesse (7500) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2007
(Draught at Saga Hotel, Reykjavik, Iceland, 30 Aug 2007) Pale yellow colour with white head. Malty nose with slight notes of grassy hops (well hidden but identifiable). Same goes with the taste: malty with modest notes of grassy hops. Definitely on the thin side. Nothing wrong with it, just plain boring.

Sadly, this one reflects the current state of beer brewing in Iceland. No worse than many other pale lagers and actually better than some of the widely sold such beers in the US. Can be consumed on a hot summer day (not that anyone would experience such days in Iceland).

Bottle at Brickskeller. Boring beer, with that said it’s about as good as a regular pale lager can hope to be.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 28, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a short white bubbly head. Bit sweet and grainy aroma. Flavour is grainy, sweet and bit hoppy. Nothing special about this brew.
