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.

500 ml can. L1 173. BB 16/02/13. (Coop) Steinkjer, Norway. Very pale golden colour with average size white head. Grassy hoppy aroma. And there's also some flavour in this one. Grassy hops, some bitterness and some earthy notes. Not bad for a bulk pilsner. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50cl from tap at Parkteatret. Clear golden with a nice, white head. Mild malty aroma with hints of grass and fruit. Sweet and malty with a somewhat dry and nice and bitter finish. My favourite Norwegian pilsner.

rlgk (13365) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2012
Canned, from a trade with Cunningham. Pale golden beer with an ok white head. Peppery aroma, grassy, bready, metallic, some toffee, some vegetables. Malty sweetish bready flavor, spicy, bitter hoppy, grass, metal notes. Kinda clean but a bit boring. Thin and with a bready finish with fruit notes.

Cunningham (5626) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2012
Golden colour with a white head. Moderate grassy and malty nose. Aass light lager beers have often a bit to grassy flavour for my liking. Grass kan stay in the garden.

Mezcalmannen (395) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 20, 2012
Clear yellow colour, a film of white head on top of it. There’s a fruity aroma to it, some grains as well. Taste has a nice crispy feel to it, moderately hoppy. As to the debate whether this is Norway’s finest macro lager, to me it probably is, along with Frydenlund Fatøl. (Can)

MadIndian (2606) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2012
The golden / yellow fizzy pour led me to believe that this would be terrible However, it had some good hop and citrus presence. A little skunky and thin, but not terrible.

Foffern (1428) - Bodø, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2012
Can at home. Golden straw-colour with a very carbonated head which fades fast. An aroma of grains and straw towards the classic cech pilsener. The flavours are much alike with more sweet grains. Medium bitternes not very lasting. Watery and thin mouthfeel. Overall not a bad light pilsener, and maybe the one of the industrial pilseners in Norway that is closest to the cech pilsener.
