Light in flavour. Sweet and slightly malty. Too thin to be very enjoyable. Icelandic Rolling Rock? bland

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 (20581) - 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 (6407) - 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 didnĺt find the malt sugars problematic.

Pailhead (6539) - 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. Itĺs light bodied with moderate carbonation and a somewhat fizzy mouthfeel.
