1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Oh my, now I’m really disappointed. I have been told that this is supposed to be one of the few decent Norwegian macro lagers, but I couldn’t disagree more. The strange thing is that initially I thought the aroma was quite ok. After smelling the beer a few times I realised that I had been tricked by my preconceptions: this really doesn’t smell very nice. Sweet malts and some hops, but also sugary cornflakes and cooked vegetables. Yikes. The taste is better, a sweet taste with a nice medium bitter finish. However, the bitter finish is accompanied by a harsh tin can flavour that more or less ruins this brew. The body is clear, pale and sparkling. Fluffy white head that soon reduces to a thin film that leaves plenty of lacing. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Nah.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l can. Pours a clear pale golden body with a decent creamy white head. Aroma is hopy with hint of citrus and malts. Actually not that bad for it’s kind. Body is medium, texture is watery to oily and has a soft to average carbonation. Nice and hopy flavors with medium bitterness and a hint of honey but not to sweet. Watery finish but there is a nice hopy aftertaste (could it be saaz?) Also has a thin lemony-sourness in the end that makes this a bit more interesting - not exciting, but interesting. Probably one of the best macro pale lagers made in Norway.
