Ungstrup (34715) - 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.

Papsoe (25063) - 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

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

Travlr (21692) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2010
Bottle at Bar Pilar. Very pale yellow, thin white head, scant lacing. Aroma of burnt rice. Taste is bitter and acidic, start to finish. No character or complexity. Best skipped.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2001
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?

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2005
(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.

(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.

madsberg (11412) - Søborg, 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.
