exeter (516) - calgary, Alberta, - MAR 13, 2014
Light in flavour. Sweet and slightly malty. Too thin to be very enjoyable. Icelandic Rolling Rock? bland

ClarkVV (6100) - 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.

Pailhead (6529) - Plymouth, 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.

Golden clear with vanishing head. Malty aroma with a hint of noble European hops. Delicate taste. Pretty ok for a lager.

berkshirejohn (6244) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2015
33cl bottle at Keflavík Airport. A typical Eurolager; straw coloured, thick white head; cereal aroma and taste; and a light bitter finish. No off-tastes, but nothing endearing either.

bulldogops (2362) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2015
Rating #1261 30.09.2014 On tap @revolutionyeg. This was my Iceland tick. Clear, goldy-yellow colour with a bubbly white foam, mild retention. Smell is a little vicious, skunky hops and grains. Taste is grainy, lightly hopped quiite smooth, with light carbonation - just rough all the way around.

Can. Tried in an Iceland Air flight to Iceland. Pretty average Euro fizz. Thirst quenching but that’s about all.
