having had this beer live in norway, I can guarantee you this: supreme quality in both brewing standards and ingredients. Put simply, this is the best pilsner I’ve ever had, period.

Bottled, light, very good aroma, balanced and fully barley taste for a light lager/pilsner like this. Very good!

Very pale in color, almost champagne like. White and cottony head, tons of tiny bubbles; The nose permeated the room when I opened it- Very potent and skunky and inviting- YUM. Milder then the nose would let on. Dryness is held in check. Gets a tiny bit tart at the 2/3 mark?

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.

softale (188) - Michigan, USA - SEP 7, 2002
This is one great pilsner beer. Clear golden color. Nice malty presence along with those Saaz and Hallertau hops in the nose make this one outstanding beer. There’s enough bodied for this beer to be enjoyable but it’s light enough to be extremely drinkable especially on these hot summer days.

A very nice pilsener that doesn’t deserve the few bad ratings i’ve seen.It had nice golden color ,light hop aroma with a slightly bitter after taste nothing bad at all well worth the exsperience

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.
