2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle... co-rated by Duff... Clear straw-colored lager with a small, creamy, white head. Grassy, clover honey nose. Decently balanced flavor, but tilts a bit on the sweet side. Mostly bland, but we spotted some hay, clover honey and spicy hop notes. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Mercifully short, crisp, mostly clean finish.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, Brickskeller. Pale, no visible bubbles or head, yellow in color. Syrupy cheap adjunct flavor, strong too. Grains and spoiled lemons everywhere. Terrible smelling, full of corn and hay and body odor. Nasty.

Poured a very pale, somewhat of a white tinted pale lager color with a thin initial head that just sat there and didn’t shrink. The lacing was outstanding, as good as it gets within style! All downhill from there. Bottle says Icelandic water was used in brewing this, but I think they used too much, being too proud of their water, cuz there was lots of water in the taste. There was some level of corn and adjuncts, but the hopping levels and water levels both seemed to keep this from being your usual terrible and sweet (sometimes cloying) pale lager flavor. Too watered down, skunky in the initial aroma. Highly carbonated and acidic mouthfeel. Not so good, but stamp me passport, Iceland! Aye!

Nothing really interesting about it. Also, got this at Brickskeller. It was a typical light lager flavor, like Stella but even a bit more watered down. Sometimes I like a beer with not much going on.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Brickskeller, DC, 5/3/06: Standard yellow beer with the standard corn starchiness. It does have a nice little hop flourish to finish.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A hazy light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with notes of citrus and corn, while the flavor is sweet malty, and the body thin. Boring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 14th St NW, Washington. A surprise. It’s bright and hoppish, with a nice lagery finish. Bought for me, thank you to the random people I met that night, in order to decrease this bar’s supply of the beer. But I found it exceptionally well tasting for a cheap session beer.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Canned: Very pale yellow (almost white). Clear. Huge white head. Sweet and watery aroma with some vague floral notes. Corn, light flowers and loads of water in the flavour. Thin, thin body. Ends on a bland watery note. Never go back to a flop, and this for sure is one of them. Thanks to Papsoe for providing this new country.
