With medium bitterness, an agreeable flavor of hops and a pleasant aftertaste, Thule Export beer seeks its origins to the family of Pilsen beers.

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle @ Rosenberg, Reykjavik. 12.Jul.2012 Clear golden body, with small foamy head. Butter and hops. Ok, and nothing splendid. Reminds me of Mack. This happened to be a warm summer evening in Reykjavik. Conclusion: Both Viking Thule and Mack Lager taste best under the Midnight Sun, but I generally prefer to drink somehting else.

Tranquillity (1510) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2015
This is the lamest lager I’ve seen. It looks like a champagne, almost see-through. The aroma was bad but the taste is even worse. Like lime water. Bad.

Can. Common lager you could swap with sample from another brewery and you do not notice it. Not bad, not good. A bit less than average

Une bière assez simple mais raffraîchissante, peu de corps et de longueur. Bière assez basique

BeerandBlues2 (10915) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle at Eld Smidjan, Reykjavik. Pours brilliantly clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is pale Pils malt and faint spicy hops. Flavor is sweet and crisp pale malt, light spicy hops and bitterness, a clean lager character and a dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Travlr (16925) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2015
Bottle at a pizza place in Reykjavik courtesy of BeerandBlues2. Mrs Blues2 said it looks like the Icelandic Rolling Rock. Pale yellow color, white head. Aroma of boiled vegetables. Taste is a bit better but not too much better. Woof.

Reimer96 (1594) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
This should be listed as a pilsner as it has a classic german pilsner Taste. Pours a clear gold color with a frothy white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pilsner malts, nobel hops and yeast with some floral esthers. Taste is pilsner malts, spicy hops, nobel hops and crisp and clean finish. Nice pilsner.

Bottle from Vínbúðin
Pale blond color with small head. Poor aroma, corn-like. Dry mouthfeel, some cereals, ordinary bitterness.
Very boring.

DuffMan (8198) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Green glass bottle. Medium golden body. Skunky hop aroma and flavour, underlying bland grains. I don’t mind skunky hops, but this is pretty dull.
