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.

Decent pilsener. Not that great not that bad. A little metallic in the body of the taste. Good aftertaste with not too much bitters. A good all around pilsener. Not too unique.

Aass pulls off a rather dry, crisp Saazy pils that nevertheless is somewhat unsatisfying. Czechvar does the pils better, I think. Good color and head, rather fizzy. Not really very sweet as some say.

what a let down this beer is not what it used to be in the early 90’s it seems watered down and lackink the complexity it once had though the brewery would claim nothing has changed

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Very mild hoppy aroma--almost imperceptible, really...Color a white-gold color with frothy head--helped along a bit by healthy carbonation. Hops are nice--prominent but restrained. Malty sweetness tasted but body is a bit thin. With the light body, carbonation a little heavy for balance...still, a refreshing offering.

Dogbrick (8035) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2002
Pale yellow colored and somewhat effervescent. Barely perceptible skunky aroma. Crisp flavor but not much character. Dry, slightly acrid finish. I am guessing the Bock is much better than this.

The first six I tried tasted very much like vanilla. I bought a bottle today and it tasted much more mellow, with a mild vanilla flavor hidden in the finish, but a sharp hops flavor hides it pretty well. Very tasty, but is a very unattractive beer to look at out of the bottle.
