2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In short: A generic blond lager without personality. Boring
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Clear blonde body topped by medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is strangely yeasty with only mild notes of grassy hops. Taste has honeyed hay swimming a yeast mixture and crunched crackers, some juicy fruits and a light presence of grassy hops. It is strange how I got such a strong yeast sensation from what appears to be a filtered blond lager, weird. Body is smooth and carbonation was rather soft. Very boring beer, easy to drink but not even refreshing which is the most basic quality I’m expecting from a beer like this. My first beer in Norway, quite a disappointment, but after the long flight and everything I was so thirsty that I could have drank something without alcohol.

250ml draught at the brewpub. Orange coloured body, slightly hazy, filmy layer blanketing the glass. Oily, fruity hops to the nose. Fresh fruity hops in flavour with malts beneath. Mild, dry bitter tail. Quite well bodied. Thirst quenching. Praise for this version of the style (Oslo, 05.08.2012

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear golden body with a small but super-lacing white head. Aroma is fruity and refreshing with grassy hops. Flavor is refreshing fruity, soft malty and a decent grassy bitterness, hint of flowers. Medium body and more evident bitterness in aftertaste. I don’t have Pils as my favorite style, but this is more than decent. Very refreshing, no off flavors at all, could easily have a few of this one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Amundsen, Oslo. Pale, misty straw golden with a fingerthick creamy white head. Cereal, sweet flowers and herbs on the nose. Heavy sweet initially but more of the bitterness comes through after some sips, some earthy notes as it heats.. Nice malty finish. Medium body, light doughy. Very noticable carbonation. Not a great beer, but not bad in any way.
