Bottle at home. Is a bit hazy with a yellow colour and a small off-white head. Aroma of sweet corn, hay and some lime. A sweet and fresh colour with sweet corn, grass, cirtus and a dry ending. Has a slick and nice mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fresh and fine easter beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Vaaland Ølutsalg. Pours hazy slightly darker pilsener colour with a soapy white head that lays a good lacing in the glass. Aroma of bread, dough, yeast and some sour hints. Flavour is wet grass, wood, hay, spruce and yeast. Low bitterness in the aftertaste. Supprisingly good body for the alcohol content, soft palate and carbonation. Overall this is a lovely dortmunder!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A slightly lemony nourishing thirst blond lager. Nothing special but something I’d drink by the gallons
How: Bottle 500ml, purchased directly at the brewpub and consumed fresh one hour later
The look: Cloudy orange-blonde body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose has boiled eggs (I get that from some lagers), lemony meringue and some floral hops. Taste has this true lager sensation that I can never pub into words, very nice full mouthfeel with lots of very soft bubbles, chewy cereals, a slice of unsweetened lemon pie with thick meringue, a tiny bit of cheese cake, a good amount of floral hops. Very satisfying and refreshing thirst lager, good stuff here. Deserves much better than its current below 3.0 rating average. The low ratings do not surprise me, a ratebeer top rater giving a good rating to a thirst lager is probably as rare as a ratebeer top rater getting sex on a regular basis.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle. I’m really glad I ’bumped’ into this one at a grocery store a while back. It is refreshing and has great flavours, and the total picture gives an impression of balance and a desire for an identity of its own.
