Bruggsmidjan Kaldi IPA
Rate from notes February 2017. (6.0% ABV) Tap at Kaldi, Reykjavik. Cloudy orange, small white head, lacing. Aroma is fruity, peach, dung. Taste is fresh, bitterish, slightly watery, orange peel, grapefruity. Bitter hoppy finish, like bitter-bitter. Bit confusing one, almost, but still...

Bruggsmidjan Kaldi Lager
One of the best lagers in Iceland. Great filling, a bit bitter, nice aroma. Quite strong but definitely a beer that's nice to drink. You have to have it on tab. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bruggsmidjan Norðan Kaldi
Labeled as Loki Laufeyjarson, from Cafe Loki in Reykjavik. Clear amber red body with a small wispy fizzy beige head. The nose is sweet caramel malt with a bit of huskiness and wet grain. The flavor is on the sweeter side with some light caramel malt and a minimal graininess on the finish. Pretty devoid of hops for the most part. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a clingy finish. Not great, but drinkable. 3/6/7/3/12

Bruggsmidjan Kaldi IPA
(33 cl bottle from Vinbudin Austurstræti; ABV: 6,0%; Bbd: June 17th 2017) Poured at sub-fridge North Atlantic outdoor temperature into a stemmed burgundy glass reveals a hazy amber with three fingers of white head that recedes somewhat after a few minutes leaving thick film and beautiful lace. Some regeneration. Aroma is hopforward with citrusy and earthy notes. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a lingering finish. Flavour is balanced with a little noticeable bitterness but remaining quite drinkable uncomplicated andnot terribly impressive either. Way better than Albani Mosaic IPA but at 500 ISK slightly too overpriced to be competitive in an international context.

Bought in Vínbuðin in Reykjavík. Has a hazy golden colour, with a thick white foam. The aroma is dominated by tropical fruit and resin. At first the taste starts sweet and fruity, while the aftertaste is mostly bitter. A decent IPA.
