1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0,5 l can kindly shared by my beer pal and co-homebrewer Lars Helge. Clear pale golden with a white, 1" rocky head. Aroma reveals very little. Some light malts. Bland beer, light to medium body with gentle carbonation and a turnip-like bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Fizzy, diminishing white head with big bubbles and a clear, straw yellow body. Aroma of spicy, Saazish hops on top of sweet pils malt. A little musty and funky. Flavor has some metallic hops up front with the spiciness coming next. Malt is sweet and crisp pils with some corn. Body is light, crisp, and dry. Moderate-high carbonation with a light, lingering metallic finish. Overall a decent pale lager. It does what it sets out to do and is inoffensive. Gets better as I drink it.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Some Liquor Store in DC six-pack ($11.99): Pours pale gold with your white head. Aroma is of slight skunk, grains, and a modicum of hops. Taste is pretty similar to Heineken, but perhaps with less of that rotten vegetable flavor. Obviously, this is really easy drinking, but ultimately utterly boring. A disappointing beer for my first sampling of Iceland. Although frankly, I knew what I was getting in to.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours golden yellow with a white head. Corny sweet and grainy. Drinkable, but a little dirty.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Quite a standard big-brew-style lager with plenty of honey notes to keep you occupied but not for that long. Drinkable but boring.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This is a pale lager much like Heineken or Becks, but it has a bit more flavor and is less skunky than those beers. This beer is also a bit sweeter and has more body than the two previously mentioned beers. It is also fairly easy to drink.
