I had this at Icelandic Bar in Reykjavik on the way to Europe. Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy golden/yellow color with a half finger of white head that fades to a thin layer on top of the pour.

Smell: Light malt with some citrus and spice. The smell is quite mild overall.

Taste: Light and crisp with a perfume like fruitiness. Mild spice note from the yeast. The flavor fades to leave the finish a bit boring.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a dry finish.

Overall: Just alright. Nice and light, but it could still keep those factors going for it and have a bit more flavor.

Had to complete the rounds of this brewery. Glad I found the ones I had not tried yet. Bottle at The English Pub in Reykjavik. From notes.

A - One finger, fluffy white head. Golden. Bright. Minimal carbonation with the head leaving really quick. No lacing. Yikes.

S - Banana is really present with alot of that lemon character to compliment. Sweetness with no spice coming out in the aroma. Alot of wheat is noticable but not to the grainy point.

T - Good amount of that lemon zest kick. Crisp with some breadiness. Toasty and wheaty.

M - Nice medium carbonation. Light body. Smooth and refreshing.

D - OK. Not overly special but easy to drink and a decent flavour there. Could use a hint of some spice to even out that sweetness.
