On tap at the brewpub. A hazy, golden beer with a two-finger, white head lightly clinging to the glass as I drink it. It’s malty on the nose, with a fruity touch and a faint dms hint. The flavor has pale malts and a touch of fruits and citrus. Citrus peel with some bitterness towards the end. Medium body, silky, and with a nice carbonation. A refreshing one, but with a touch of dms that even though it’s barely detectable is a bit annoying. 110823

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2012
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

On tap at the brewpub. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is light grainy malts, grassy hops. Taste is light sweet malty, moderate grassy hops lingering to the end. Fresh and crisp mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

larsga (7222) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2012
Medium white head. Slightly hazy pale yellow body. Mealy resiny citric aroma with floral peachy notes. Dry-sweetish resiny floral citric taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish mouthfeel. Dry resiny fruit candy aftertaste with mealy papery notes. Nice, refreshing, but not as clear and vivid as it could. Still, definitely a very drinkable beer. (0.5l draft at brewpub.)

KnutAlbert (6651) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 21, 2011
Huge rocky head, lively carbonation, golden beer. Malty aroma. Bittersweet flavour, corn flakes. Fine use of hops, giving flowers, herbs and a long bitter tail.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
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.

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.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2011
From tap @Amundsen. A shine white top, sitting on a near-clear, plain pilsner golden body. Aroma of clean pale malts, paired with whiff of hay and yellow fruits from the hops. Fairly dry and crisp malt flavor. A quite sharp, yet nice fruity bitterness througout. Not very full. Slick texture. Overall, a more than decent lager with good drinkability.
