Acceptable like the fact that salmon os relatively less expensive than most other foods in Iceland. Golden pour in a plastic cup at a roadside grill in Vik with a crappy burger that cost $20. Finished it off while walking down the beach towards the rock formations.

ianwelby (1301) - SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2017
Clear amber beer, thin head. Light, sweet aroma. Taste is a bit sickly-sweet but when chilled it takes the edge off. Absolutely average.

PintjeFritz (294) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2017
Clear golden beer with small and very short white head, very light bitter, light malty, oily, short finish, not special, (I have 0.33l can with production date 15.08.16 - 14:10 and best-before 11.06.2017)

Manslow (1529) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 26, 2016
Butelka w Akureyri pita. Kolor złoty, piana znikoma, szybko znika. Aromat słodowy, wytrawne, łagodne na podniebieniu.

josanguapo (1504) - SPAIN - SEP 10, 2016
Miguel brought it to me from Iceland. In Teku glass. At dinner, with bratwurst sausages. Very correct. Pleasant and easy drinking, with nothing out of place. Better than our industrial lagers

DrNosha (2119) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2016
0,5l Dose beim Philipino in Reykjavik. Goldgelbes klares Bier, weisser luftiger Schaum. Bieriger Lager Duft. Etwas Kork. Sanft säuerlich im Antrunk. Kork, Getreide und auch etwas Hopfen. Ganz ok zu scharfem Essen.

33cl bottle. Quite average, but taste is a bit sourish or sweetish. Good. I like it.
