DrNosha (1734) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
0,5l Dose. Hellgelb und klar. Flüchtiger weisser Schaum. Räes riecht Säuerlich nach Getreide und Zitrone. Antrunk ist Zitronenzeste. Herb und etwas Hopfen. Dann typisch Lager. Ganz ehrlich habe ich weltweit schin schlechteres Lager getrunken und nach höllisch scharfem Essen nicht ganz verkehrt.

Aroma is starchy, not much else. Flavor is sweet and grainy, little too malty.

From a bottle. Not as bad as I’d expected, very crisp but quite bland. A good lawn mower beer.

larsga (7314) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 5, 2015
Huge white head. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Light floral aroma, nothing more. Sweetish fruity floral taste. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish floral fruity aftertaste with hits of spice. Very little flavour, but clearly a well-made beer. Lacking bitterness. Very clean, but still can’t give it high scores. (0.5l can, from Vinbudin Egilsstadir.)

Cunningham (7058) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2015
Clear pale golden color with an ok white head. Grainy and herbal aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average carbonation. Malty, grainy and herbal flavor. Plain and boring lager.
[Bottle from Vínbúðin in Akureyri, Iceland]

gunnar (8030) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 25, 2015
Can. Pours clear straw with a tiny white head. Shy grainy aroma. Taste is very weak sweet malty, grains and caramel, with a very shy bitter dry finish, not any good.

Well, this is my last can of Viking in the house and I’m glad. Drank from can cause I wasn’t even motivated to pour it into a glass to dirty it. It’s one of the better of the 5 pack I was gifted, but I won’t be searching out this stuff again.

rosenbergh (10696) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2014
500 ml can. BB 05/07/2015. (Tax Free) Keflavík Airport, Iceland.
Clear yellow golden colour with a small foamy white head. Almost no aroma... weak... no there is not aroma at all. The flavour is malt and mild earthy notes... Bad.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
Pours a clear pale gold with a small frothy white head that leaves some lace. Aroma of faint fruity esthers and some sweet pale malts. Taste is sweet pale malts with some fruity esthers... Rather thin and watery. One of my least favorite Iceland beers thus far.
