Bottle, 33cl, from Centra, Oslo. BB Feb 2010. Nice white head, reducing to a persistent lacing. Pale golden colour. Light floral hoppy aroma with citrus. The aroma continues nicely in the mouth, but suddenly all but disappears and leaves with a weak, dry aftertaste.

15th July 2008. ’Brewed from the purest highland water’. Surprisingly deep gold for it’s abv. Smooth and very mild malt gives way to a crisp bite in the finish with a little bitterness at the very end. Nice pilsner.

500 ml bottle. Golden body with a small, diminishing white head. Nice, light and fresh aroma of citric hops. Flavor is light malty, citric fruity, almost floral hoppy. A bit thin and watery body, still a nice flavor and fine aftertaste. A real thirst-quencher.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, pale golden colour with a dense medium-sized foamy white head. Delicately sweet pale malty aroma with distinctive notes of citrus/lemon and woody also slightly herbal hops. Bitter flavour with a tinge of acidity, light but never flat bodied with a smooth carbonation. Dry hops character with fruity and woody elements, lingering into the dry, moderately bitter and fruity finish with a delicately grainy malty sweetness. Aromatic and very session-able. 02.XI.09

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl dark brown bottle, label as pictured.
Typical clear yellow golden colour with big, fluffy white head, good retention and plenty of lacing.
Surprisingly heavy-bodied for a blonde, with thick mouth feel. No beer for wimps, this.
Intense aroma of hops, with a fruity citrusy note. Why can’t Czech pilseners smell like that ... ?
Hops feature strongly on the palate, too. There’s a refreshing dry, citrusy note to this beer that almost makes it appear a cross between lager and IPA styles. Medium bitterness, increasing as you’re downing the beer - with a mildly bitter, but very dry, straw-like finish and after taste.
This should be a supremely sessionable pilsener, straightforward but characterful, and there’s no skunkiness here anywhere. Most agreeable.
