Recent gift from a friend who went to Iceland.

Pours a gold color with a finger of bubbly white head. Head quickly evaporates to a crown. No lacing.

Smell consists of light malt and grain.

Some light sweetness. Overall, it makes me feel like I am drinking a Coors. Somewhat excessive carbonation.

Not something I would want to drink long term. The low ABV thankfully made it possible for me to pound this back and move on to something better.

Pours a one finger white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Crystal clear amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light bodied. Slight hoppy nose. Flavor is hoppy, bitter and musty, slight lingering bitter aftertaste. Green 330ml bottle 600 ISK ~ $7.20 from a GullFoss Kaffi. From my notes - 7/21/2008.

A friend had a layover in Iceland and brought me back a can since he knows I like beer. This comes in a blue 500mL can. I served it right out of the fridge in on of my Harpoon IPA glasses.

Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, light golden with a two-finger, fluffy, white head that fades to a heterogeneous film leaving patchy lace.

Smell: Light sweet malts and a light graininess.

Taste: Lightly sweet upfront, almost flavorless in the center, with some grain and an almost imperceptible bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied and watery with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Decently drinkable until it starts to warm.
