Icelandic lager
« on: March 08, 2013, 01:57:57 AM »
My boss just recently returned from a trip to Iceland. It was interesting to see that the local craft beer movement is just becoming mainstream there. He was nice enough to bring me back a local craft beer
Snorri Islenskt Ol nr 10 is what he brought back. From what i gather and what he was told it is light lager made from all Icelandic ingredients and has thyme in it.
the beer itself was very clean, crisp, and refreshing. the color was very pale similar to Coors, it reminded me a bit like ac golden/coors batch 19. it seemed to over carbonated though, but overall 3.5/5 stars

fyi the page is in Icelandic
“Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drank, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.
