brnandersen (3905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2017
Draught at Kopar Restaurant, Reykjavik. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Sweet aroma with grasses and pale malts. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes dry and fruity with grasses and grains. Standard industrial Lager.

hauxe (766) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2017
From the plastic cup, somewhere in the sky above Greenland. Clear light gold with a foamy, white head that settles but lingers. Aroma is grassy, a bit artificial, like some sort of air freshener. Taste is mildly bitter up front, in an unsettling, industrial sort of way, turning sweeter and smoother in the finish, which is where the beer’s strength lays. Light bodied. Almost refreshing despite obvious flaws.

solidfunk (8964) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 21, 2017
Can on the airplane to Reykjavik to make me go to sleep off hours. It worked like overtime! Not too bad for a lager, either. Crisp finish and decent fresh water.

Leighton (21255) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2017
Keg at Kaffibarinn - Reykjavik. Pours clear yellow-gold with a foamy, white head. Crispy cereal in the nose, some straw, pale grains. Light sweet flavour with some further pale grains, cereal, low bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty crisp on the finish, with further crispy cereal, pale bread, hay. Nice, easygoing cheap lager.

ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Canned October 28, 2016, drunk 11/27/16 on WOW Airlines flight to Iceland.
Clear with a large white head showing moderate retention. Golden, well-carbonated.
Smells quite clean with mineral water, pleasant cereal character and light honey-like grains. Maybe a hint of metallic character, but very, very minimal. None of the major offenders here; DMS, diacetyl or acetyldehyde. Very light hint of grassy hops help lighten things and there is no alcohol or oxidation.
In the mouth it shows ample carbonation, not too obnoxiously fizzy with honey and mineral water. Lots of grain and light cereal with hints of pepper and grass. Clean, drinkable and refreshing. I quite enjoyed it. Maybe on the sweet side, but I didn’t find the malt sugars problematic.

2.7
Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Can: The aroma consists of lightly sweet cereal notes, grass, and straw. It pours a transparent gold with a two finger white head that eventually fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with light sweet cereal notes. The finish has light-moderate grass with faint straw and lemon. It’s light bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat fizzy mouthfeel.

3.3
SVD (1981) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2016
Glass from tap, golden small head. aroma is grain. Taste is the same with some hops. average.
