Bottle from a Vínbúdin in Reykjavik. Pours ruby with a good frothy cream head. Nothing much in the aroma. The taste has citrus and toffee. Quite a creamy mouthfeel. Pleasantly bitter. Maybe a touch soapy, but OK.

Bruggsmidjan Kaldi IPA
330ml bottle at Saeta Svind in Reykjavik. The ale poured a dark Amber with an off white head and lacing. This is nice balanced IPA with citrus and pine resin on the nose. The medium body ale has average carbonation. The finish was clean, dry with lingering bitterness. Great new restaurant.

tap @ Skuli Craft Bar, as "Ljos Osiadur 4,7%", not sure which one this was after all.
Orange clear beer with some white head. Aroma has malts and citrus. Flavor has malts, grass and fruits. Cardboardy all over. Quite thin palate with quite strong carbonation. Medium bitterness on the finish with malts, grass and light fruits on the aftertaste. Very cardboardy, unfresh, macro lagerish.

330 ml bottle at Keflavik Airport The ale poured clear amber color with an off white head and modest lacing. The aroma of caramel malts and bread. The beer is quite pleasant with a medium body and average carbonation. It was not a complex beer but a great way to kill time in an airport.. The finish was dry, clean and smooth.

330 ml at Icelandair Hotel Akureyri The pilsner poured a clear deep golden color with off white head and lacing. The beer has yeasty malty nose. There is a nice subtle bitterness that makes this a special beer. The medium body pilsner had average carbonation. The beer finish with hints of bitterness to the last swallow.

Keg at the kaldibar, reykjavik. Dark ruby colour with a good lacy light tan head. Aroma is quite plain, some toffee and some tangy bready notes. Taste is slightly sour and bitter. A bit fizzy and thin, very bloating. Not the best.

Bruggsmidjan Kaldi IPA
Draft at Kaldi Bar, Reykjavik. Cloudy amber with a foamy, off-white, lasting head.. American hop aroma is aged cheese (old hops), grapefruit and pineapple with softer touches of resin and herbs. Medium-full bodied, moderately sweet with intense bitterness that only grows into the finish, the effect not unlike what you get from chewing on raw hop pellets. Fermentation is clean, malt is nicely rich and the impression is honey and toasted grains, and the aroma is enjoyably fruity other than the aged hop cheese note, but really the limiting factor is the strong bitterness that throws the flavor balance off so much.

Bruggsmidjan Páska Kaldi
Draft. Dark ruby amber with a lasting off-white head. Aroma is lightly malty with notes of burnt bread crust and toasted grain and marzipan and red apples, lightly mineral-forward, metallic and copper-like (a yeast effect I get in some of their other lagers). Medium bodied, succulent sweetness with savory malt in the way of true Czech Tmavy, balanced well by moderate bitterness, maintaining flavor balance and aligned with weight. Finish is crunchy, toasty and off-dry with notes of nutty / almond-like dark caramel malt. Not the most interesting malt profile, kind of a basic just-burnt bread maltiness with the metallic copper penny character creeping as it warms, but it’s still drinkable, which is a step up in quality for Kaldi after trying six of their beers last year and finding all of them lacking, and a few of them faulty. Definitely not bock-strength, and closer to Dunkel/Tmavy than Heller or Dunkles Bock at just over 5%.
