COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2003
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.

haukur (1291) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - APR 4, 2003
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.

You know, I’ve heard that Iceland is relatively pollution-free. That might explain why this water tastes so pure. What’s that? ’Bjor’ means ’beer’? Really?
