Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2013
One finger of head on a clear, light straw colored body. The aroma is light and airy. Smells like sweet corn and candy. I actually like it though. The taste is mildly sweet with a nice dryness and a touch of fruit. The texture is light and bubbly with moderate carbonation. It packs some great flavor into a lighter beer. I like it.

12 Oz bottle, a gift from a friend. Very crisp, clean tasts, some fruity, berry notes. I feel like I could drink it all night and never feel full, it was flavorful and light, and although I generally prefer stouts or porters, I definitely enjoyed this Icelandic brew, would even buy it sometime.

Antzrhere (178) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2017
A delicate beer that marries citrus,coriander and orange quite well. Light, floral, clean and balanced. Crisp mineral profile. Wont blow your palette, but well put together

radassace (213) - SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2017
330ml bottle from Waitrose. Pours a cloudy lemon with a creamy white head. Very delicate light notes of coriander and citrus lemon/ orange in the nose. Very smooth mouth feel. I can taste the quality of the ingredients and the crystal clear Icelandic water. Again the flavours are very delicate, wheat malts with the smallest amount of sweetness, coriander and orange. It’s slightly sour and citrus too. This is lovely stuff, subtle and hugely refreshing.

thejackpacker (327) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle, gift from friend from Iceland. One of the few beers I’ve had without any distinguishable smell at all. The taste is as pure as water, it’s smooth as heaven and goes down a treat despite not having a huge flavour profile. It’s delicate, hugely freshing and would be great on a hot day or spring skiing day!

The Color of the beer is fascinating. Looks so bright yellow. A little but like urine. Sorry for that Discription ;-) The taste is light with a note of Orange and hops. No bitterness. Ok
