The malted barley is a pilsner malt produced in the Scandinavian countries. We use the very best of hops known under the names of Saazer and Hallertau, and the liquid is pure Norwegian mountain water.

Version brewed for the export market contains 5.5% ABV.

Ungstrup (31471) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2006
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.

larsga (6930) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2006
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.)

Roren (2) - ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2005 does not count
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.

joergen (24491) - 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 (3408) - St. Louis, Missouri, 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 (4532) - Fort Wayne, 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 (5215) - 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 (3650) - 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 (2654) - 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.
