Nothing exceptional, just a good local lager I guess.

While Gull is the most ubiquitous (and terrifyingly sweet) beer around Reykjavik, Thule appears to be the preferred alternative outside the city.

It's an absolutely okay American adjunct. Light floral aroma, medium sweetness, decent cereal roughness. There's nothing at all exceptional about the beer other than it's much more quaffable than Gull.

This probably won't withstand international travel too well, but if you're in Iceland it's a decent standby.

brought over from Gimli Manitoba ( biggest Icelandic pop. outside Iceland) . This is a very weak lager that is not offensive but lacks even the flavour of say Faxe or tuborg. The beer works with food but on its own it suffers from the watery aftertaste and the lack of any real nose. cool drinking an beer from Iceland ( none are available in BC) but this is not a good beer and hopefully Iceland has some better beers to offer

500mL can (canned 2/14/2013) into an English pint glass. Pours a clear golden color w/ a fluffy white head that leaves behind some sticky lace. Moderate carbonation.

Aroma is mildly floral, coarsely grainy. Barely smells of anything at all.

Taste is weak and watery. Some bland grainy sweetness from the malt, tea-like floral qualities from the hops. Blech.

Mouthfeel is thin and watery. A slight crispness is the only thing letting me know this is beer.

Overall, an unremarkable watered-down beer. No need to ever drink this again.

500ml Can

Appearance – Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is a fair amount of lacing. The head lasted for around 4 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, bread, malts, corn, and lots of skunk

Taste & Mouth - The beer has a high amount of carbonation. I can taste breads/grains mixed with light hops and some corn. I can also pick up on some malts and some light floral notes. It finishes with a corn syrup sweet and spicy aftertaste.

Overall – The taste comes across as slightly harsh.. For that reason I wouldn't want to drink more than 1 of these at a time.. or maybe even ever again. A lager should be refreshing and highly drinkable..
