Aroma: Smells like a Heineken, which is weird since this comes in a can, not a green bottle.

Appearance: pure gold, nice head and lacing

Taste: pretty much the same as all the other European macro lagers. Bland, dry, grainy and a dry sour aftertaste. It’s possible this beer went fouled en route to me but seeing as how similar it is to other beers I’ve had from the Faroe Island/Iceland I doubt it.

Mouthfeel: not bad. Soft. Quaffable.

Drinkability: Pretty easy to slug down. Doesn’t feel as heavy as 5.8% ABV.

Overall: very generic beer. Loses a few points for being skunky and sour out of a can.

Grade: 3/10
