COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Víking Strong lager has an alcohol content of 7%, making it the strongest beer in the Víking range. It has a pale golden colour with little bitterness and the slightly sweet savour of malt. Víking Sterkur is popular because of its pleasantly mild character which is retained despite its high alcohol content.

ClubGonzo (3997) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2010
Pours a pale lager-ish body with a partly creamy, partly foamy top which sticks around for a little while. An Icelandic malt liquor? Hm. Nose is very mild, with pale malts and hints of booze. Taste is dry, dusty hops, booze and pale malts; the maltiness hangs around a bit with some metallic hop-ish tones and hints of corn and grain in the aftertaste. Decidedly boozy notes; this is not a subtly masked beer at all. While I think the taste is more in line with the European strong lager ("exports") than American-style malt liquors, this is definitely designed to get you drunk rather than taste well.

Can from Reykjavik airport. Sweetish malt, apart form that there is hardly any aroma or flavour here. A hint of alcohol, maybe.

RuneStumo (2173) - FŘRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - JAN 23, 2009
30.10.2004, 0,5l Can. Colour is pale yellow. Aroma is weak with some malt. This beer does not taste like a real strongbeer.

omhper (19337) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2008
Canned at Petelax Beer Festival. Pale yellow, small head. Fruity alcohol aroma. Sweet and medium bodied. Fruity and mellow with some burning alcohol. No bitterness. Poorly executed malt liquor, but still better than their other beers - at least this one tastes like ethanol, which is better than garbage.

theisti (3224) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAY 9, 2008
500 ml can purchased at the Vín Búđ - Austurstrćti, Reykjavik, Iceland. Pour is clear pale yellow-golden with a bunch of fine carbonation and a sudsy 2 inch white head that falls fast. Aroma of mild malty corniness. Taste is sweet corn, and sour-metallic. Chemical menthol in the finish. This was the worst beer I had in Iceland, not good at all.
