2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I’ve drunk this one in Europe a couple of times.
It’s nothing memorable for some reason. Most of these lagers from Europe are no more memorable than a PBR or a Blatz or a Budweiser.

Bottled. (Only 4.5% ABV due to Norwegian alcohol-taxes.) Clear, pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty, but with some grainy notes. Quite sweet, malty and light flavor. Medium to light body and a finish with some bitterness. (060216)

A rather bland, standard Norwegian pilsener, saved by some flowery hops and hoppy frehness in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A light orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is sweet and rather hoppy, the flavor is also sweet and hoppy though not as much as the aroma - but still OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2008 Big white fine-laced head, clear copper body. Soft, faintly spicy floral hop aroma. Taste is initially caramel malts, followed by floral hops and apples. Dry, papery, mealy aftertaste with a grassy bitterness is the lowest point of the beer. Not the most exciting Pilsner, but decent. (0.5l can.)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is easily the best pils I have come across in Norway. Good use of hops makes for a really tasty brew, although I recommend getting it brewery fresh as it does not necessarily age very well.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yellow colour with a smalll white head. Aroma dominated by hops, with notes of malt and metal.
Boring taste dominated by hops.
I’m amazed, that this beer, is rated so high, it’s one of the most boring beer’s I’ve ever had. Standard norwegian pilsner.
