joergen (19665) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2005
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.

Terminus (3148) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - DEC 12, 2004
bottle-pours a nice orange hue that is slightly darker than most pils of this type. a good looking brew! noble hops, haygrass, and a slight skunk aroma. flavors mimic the aroma for the most part, but the skunk is not as present than the aroma suggests. not bad, but not great

hotstuff (3954) - Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2004
Bottle. Very small white head with small-very large sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. Fast rising carbonation, somewhat hazy and a dark yellow hue. The aroma was malty and sweet. The flavor was malty and hops. Slightly tingly mouthfeel. No lacing.

thedm (4888) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 25, 2004
This bottled brew poured a very small head of fine to large sized mostly lasting white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was a carbonated hazy brownish yellow. The aroma was slightly barnyard with malty and brown beer notes. The mouth feel was smooth with a slight strange hop bite that lingered in the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops grass and was slightly off and undesirable. Hmmm another green bottle. Ya figure?

thegreenrooster (3088) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 4, 2004
Pours a cloudy yellow. This brew looks more like a hefe than a pilsner. Aroma is hoppy and there is 0 head. Flavor is oily and thick. You get the flavor of hops but the skunkyness overwhelms. There are better out there.

willblake (2632) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2004
Can courtesy of Norwegian (Bergen) roommate, 05/00. Pale golden, quite clear and clean looking, fizzy carbonation and foamy head (fades). Saazy, malty, dry finish, not to bitter...Uninspired but refreshingly crisp and quaffable.

Dalle (1145) - Skørping, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2004
Light golden with sad head. Oily-maltiness, soft, nothing unpleasent about it - but it could use a bit more of everything!!!

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2003
Pleasant, dry grass Saazness shies away into the watery transparence of commercialism...Sharp hay beneath a choking soda-like costume...Vapid in the cold, almost turpid in the household...

JoeM500 (1902) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Bright clear yellow. Grainy then slightly sweet, faint skunkiness trying to push through. Leafy, grassy hops is pretty weak.

EKGoldings (526) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 7, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2003 Had this in bottle well chilled. Hazy, with lumps floating. Color is dark yellow, darker than Bohemian brews. Slight aroma of hops, tastes very mild, slight garbage taste. Has the Danish lager styling but mine had poor flavor and chill haze. I'll rerate when I can get this again, my bottle may have been defective.
