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.

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.

Braudog (6284) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2006
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.

Ungstrup (34215) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 18, 2006
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.

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.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2006
Can. Golden colour with a small white head. Weak corny aroma and a sweet thin malty, corny taste. Watery body with a sweet finish.

Hildigöltur (5105) - Křbenhavn, DENMARK - JAN 5, 2006
Canned. Very pale yellow beer. No aroma. Extremely watery flavour. Definately not a viking beer.

madsberg (11360) - Sřborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2006
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.

Kevin (2192) - New Mexico, USA - OCT 27, 2005
a very clear yellow pour with a ring of white that that is supposed to pass for a head. bad smelling wheat aroma. corntastic water flavor. tastes like it came right from the cob. i don’t know if this has any adjuncts in it, but it sure as hell tastes cornorific. boiled corn water.

(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.

Nuffield (4049) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2005
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.
