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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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?

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light golden with sad head. Oily-maltiness, soft, nothing unpleasent about it - but it could use a bit more of everything!!!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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...

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright clear yellow. Grainy then slightly sweet, faint skunkiness trying to push through. Leafy, grassy hops is pretty weak.
