2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. A clear, slighlty pale golden beer with a finger thick white head on top. Hayish, grassy nose with some pale malts and a hint of fruity, spicy hops. Medium body with a good carbonation. Dry, with biscuity malts, grassy, spicy hops and some hay. Quite low on bitterness. Short finish with some bitterness and a little maltyness. A quite tasteful one, at least considering the style, but it’s nothing impressing about it. Just a clean, boring lager like many others. (090418)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, bought @ Voldby Købmandsgård.
Pours pale, clear golden. A big, fizzy, bubbly, white head on top. Aroma is heavy, very skunky, almost like cow... Some hay, malts and brewin cereal. Medium carbonation, quite watery. Flavour is quite metallic, some sweet maltiness, light alcohol and a good dose of citric hops. Not very nice, really.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to gethinbeer for this one. Very pale straw colour. Very skunky aroma. Fresh malts and a soft hoppiness. Kind of thin-bodied. Light noble hoppiness and a fresh pale malt character. It’s pretty boring, but it isn’t bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap in Höfn. A decent enough lager. Pretty dry, slightly bready, no adjuncts noticable. A minor amount of crisp hops even show up in the finish. Mostly drinkable with a nice body. Leagues better than its main competitor, Gull.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Standard lager colored with little vanishing white head. Sweet fruity aroma with slight esters, some floral note also present. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is more hopped with biting carbonation, still nicely soft palate. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Somehow I like this.
