Let’s taste

I intend to buy myself two sixpacks of Bríó today, according to the World Beer Cup 2012 the best German-Style Pilsener in the world:

Category 31: German-Style Pilsener, 74 Entries
Gold: Brio, Olgerdin Egill Skallagrimsson, Reykjavik, Iceland

Since I wasn’t quite convinced by Icelandic beers so far, I’m thrilled to try this one by Ölgerðin Egill Skallagrímsson. By the way, for anyone who wonders where this brewery1 has its name Egill Skallagrímsson from, read the linked Wikipedia article. I can also recommend to read the respective saga, although – parental warning 😆 – it’s full of violence.

Update: a very nice beer indeed. I like the hoppy taste. When I tried it, I intentionally didn’t cool it down, so I could enjoy all the flavors that would normally be suppressed in a very cold beer.

  1. öl = beer, a cognate of ale, gerði = maker, gerðin = the maker, að gera = to make []
