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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pale pilsener golden with a very small, lightly creamy head. Lovely hop-aromatic nose, but it’s gone in no time leaving no traces whatsoever. Some sweetness from the malt and some stickiness from the corn. Only a weak hint of hops. 230605

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - JUN 6, 2005
On Iceland Air. Boring and slightly offensive lager. If you’re looking for a rare thing to try that’s new this beer is for you. It’s not very good though.

Tap. This stuff is horrid. Clear straw clear appearance, virtually no head. Thin. There are reasons to travel to Iceland, but this is not one of them.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2004
Tap. Another Víking brew let down by corn. It's not offensive, but the sweetness the corn lends the palate, along with that corny softness just does me no favours. Otherwise not really bad. The head stays, but over a yellowy body. Fairly weak on the palate, but I managed to drink two on the free, so it's not THAT bad.

rauchbier (3634) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2003
Bottle. Straw gold, thin white head and moderate condition. Initial grassiness in nose replaced by mothballs as it warms, metallic in the mouth with a little starchiness and an oily finish.

Pale yellow color. Sugar and various other adjuncts in the nose, wait.. a little hops. Body is sweet with a light organic bitterness that dries at the end. The nice bitterness saves this thing. Not as bad as I would have thought from other ratings.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 The thing that pops into your mind when drinking this is "water". Brewed in Akureyri in the north of Iceland, a town that maybe has the cleanest water on earth! not a bad beer, but nothing I'm thinking of buying in the near future, but not bad on the tap. Christmas beer from this brewery is quite good..

While drinking this beer one can easily conclude that barley is expensiveon Iceland, but water is not.
