On tap at Black Beach Restaurant in Vik, Iceland.

This pours a light yellowish, with a small head, and no lacing.

Smells like...not a whole lot. Faint hops and a vaguely sweet malt thing l.

This is subpar, but I enjoyed it anyway since I had just seen the black sand beach at Reynisfjara and I was in a good mood. Nonetheless, it's mediocre and near tasteless, with a vague sweetness to it, and just a hint of hop bitterness.

This is light bodied, bland but drinkable.

Typical Euro lager garbage here.

50cl on tap in Vik, Iceland, served in the proper glassware.

Body is a clear medium golden-straw yellow body, one finger white head, fair retention, not much lacing. Smells of bread, biscuit, touch of noble hop aroma, a bit grassy. Flavour is similarly biscuity, bread, grass, touch of floral. Mouthfeel is thinner bodied, crisp and refreshing, but otherwise bland without too much flavour.
