2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
En helt grei islandsk lettøl. Passer fint til råtten hai. Utroolig godt :-). Flaske i Akureyri på Island mens haien tinet. Hold dere unna de mørke bitene er mitt tips. På haien altså. Dette var en svært lys lager. Noe tynn i smaken også. Mild og lite bitterhet. Falt muligens noe igjennom pga den sterke haismaken...

Bottle fom Dan Murphy’s June 2013. I thought that this beer would be a lot worse than it actually was. Golden colour with a big white head.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle) Clear straw, loose very short-lived head. Distinctive but not very pleasant aroma: vegetables, cardboard. Light and fizzy like soda. Watery grainy flavour with a bit of citrus tang and a hint of unappealing bitterness in the finish. Really quite an unpleasant beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Good to pick this one up at Dan Murphy's as it reminded me of my holiday in Reykjavik. Awesome city, not much of a beer. Pale straw with minimal head. Aromas of dead yeast, malt and citrus aromas with a very short finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A clear golden beer with a stable foam head, malt aromas prevail like honey and dough, clear taste with a good balance with hops. Really enjoyable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
With a very Germanic depiction (Johannes Gehrts), Odin looks more like a semi-naked Vercingetorix with a spear across his neck. Unfortunately the beer is not as heroically grandiose. Meh for the faint aroma of malts and Saaz, and meh for the ordinary malty honeyish flavour, soapy and straw dry, with a very thin film of hoppy bitterness, more like an aluminium foil covering it. The appearance is thin lemony yellow. I’m still hoping to drink one day some Icelandic beer as powerful as a tectonic plate. They could call it Dimmu Borgir, I suppose.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle - Pours pale straw with a big frothy white head that pops pretty quickly. Aroma is cardboard and straw and something a bit plastic. Taste is worse. Not good.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A little questionable on the brewer and the amount of Aussie’s who have rated this one. Weighing in at 4.4% ABV now but with no distinguishable information available about it I suppose it is on to the tasting. Exploded once the cap came off so into the flute it goes, quick like. An effervescent straw gold and bright. Head is up then it falls flat to settle a mere wafer of white. Aroma of sodden cardboard, reams of paper, band-aids. Soppy, sloppy and soapy mouthfeel - oh yeah the three S’s! Light bodied and strained for flavour. Just a continuation of the aroma making it difficult to find positives. Sub-par by a long shot!
