Canned. Very pale yellow beer. No aroma. Extremely watery flavour. Definately not a viking 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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle, courtesy of Nuffield) Pours a pale yellow body with a small white head. Aroma of wet grass and light florals. Watery flavor, but not offensive.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very light yellow color, little head. Stunningly mild, little flavor or aroma. In fact, the closest comparison that I can think of for this is Michelob Ultra. But it’s from Iceland so it must be bristling with sophistication.

Bottle. Nose-once, as a child on a frozen day, I played on a lake of frozen sewage from a busted sewage line. This smells exactly like it did. Very, very pale body with no head. Taste-what taste? <etal, light almond, corn flakes. Blah.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
(33cl bottle, best by 3/06) White head atop a crystal clear straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, grain, light bread, skunk. Taste is medium sweet, grain, some corn, apple, light astringency, no bitterness. Light body, fairly clean. A generic pale lager, about the only redeeming value is that it gives me another country.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not the greatest way to get a party started, although in the famous words of my friend, it will get you drunk. (spoken loudly in a quiet room full of fingerpainting children-which didn’t actually happen, we were in a bar with people that seemed like children interested in fingerpainting, I personally do not enjoy fingerpainting, but I digress). At any rate, waterly bland, boring are the words to describe this one.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale lager, sweet - both a little malty and also corny; dusty hop pepper at the end. Not quite "bad", but fairly close. Bottle at the Brickcellar, DC.
