COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bríó var fyrsti bjórinn frá Borg Brugghúsi. Bríó er svokallađur pilsner-bjór en ólíkt ţví sem margir Íslendingar halda er pilsner ekki léttöl, heldur ljós lagerbjór frá borginni Pilsen í Bćheimi (í vestanverđu Tékklandi). Ţessi bjórstíll leit fyrst dagsins ljós á miđri 19. öld og varđ svo vinsćll, ađ megniđ af ţeim bjór sem drukkinn er í dag er á einn eđa annan hátt byggđur á ţessum stíl. Notađ er ţýskt humlayrki, Mittelfrüh frá Hallertau í Bavaríu, í bjórinn. Ţessi humlar gefa mjög einkennandi bragđ og ljúfa lykt. Auk humla er notađ ljóst Pilsen malt og undirgerjandi ger.

Svesse (8454) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2017
(Bottle) Golden colour, slightly hazy, with frothy white head. Malty nose with white bread, orange, honey, grainy malt and hay. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of white bread, lemon peel, hay, honey, green apples and a gentle grassy, citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Decently drinkable, but hardly exciting. Enjoyable.

Leighton (20794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Keg at Kex Hostel - Reykjavik. Pours clear yellow with a foamy, white head. Weak aroma, just some faint crispy cereal. Lightly sweet flavour, with a little hay, more cereal, faint dough. Light bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat drying in the finish, with further cereal, biscuits, faint bitter hay. A little metallic edge. So so, even for a cheap lager.

Butelka z Vinbudin jeżeli dobrze pamiętam. Kolor jasnozłoty, piana gruboziarnista. Aromat i smak słodowo-chmielowy trochę owoców. Lekkie piwo nagazowanie dobre, posmak beczki, goryczka słaba.
