bjakk (717) - Skagafjordur, - JAN 25, 2014
Golden with little head. Sour with a hint of dry malt in the aroma. Dry malt, hay, with bitter aftertaste. High in carbon. Not a good example

Une biŔre trŔs raffraţchissante avec une belle amertume et une finale bien houblonnÚe, une biŔre de soif

BeerandBlues2 (12193) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Tap at Bunk Bar. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is earthy hops, buttery diacetyl, and light cracker malt. Flavor is diacetyl, moderate earthy hops, light malt and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

Draft at Bunk Bar. Clear deep golden color. Aroma of buttered popcorn. Taste is similar. Oh nooooo.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2014
Draught at K-Bar, Reykjavik
If i understand correctly, this beer was brewed in February celebrating the end of the winter, and the end of good food, and itĺs brewed with old barley malt.
Clear amber color with compact head. Some cereals, malt, light caramel, and very light puckery feeling in the end. Low bitterness. Easy beer.

330 ml bottle. Amber color, quickly dissapearing head. light aromas, a bit bitter flavor, watery. Not my favorite at all.

Foxbush (1832) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
330 ml Bottle at a local Reykjavik Restaurant The beer poured a clear light amber with a small head that dissipated. There is a light bitterness with medium body and average carbonation. This is a seasonal beer which was introduced in January 2014.

hag14 (110) - Hafnarfj÷r­ur, ICELAND - MAR 8, 2014
Very boring beer to be honest. This british lager with its earthy tasting hops is just a prime example of why Viking ÷lger­ needs to step up.

SaintMatty (6846) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2014
330ml Bottle (Kex Hostel, Reykjavik) - Copper in colour. Metallic and malty aroma. Raisins, earthy hops and caramel in the taste. Not as authentic as I was hoping it would be.

haukur (1800) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - FEB 21, 2013
No head. Some lingering hops in the aroma, but nothing much, very stale aroma. Very carbonated, with a non-existent finish. You an tell itś a bitter/esb but this is extremely laid back
