Rune (8493) - Tromsø, - SEP 25, 2012
200ml draught at Pingvinen. Brown-reddish body colour. Tiny layer with a few patches. Modest malt-fruity smell. Brown malts and mid-dried fruits creating a jam-like flavour. Refreshing malt-bitter ending. Quite well bodied. Has definitely got its moments of joyful beer drinking (Bergen, 17.09.2012).

Kingmaker (3) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 26, 2014 does not count
Flasche aus dem lokalen Supermarkt. Das Bier erscheint nach dem Anguss aus der Flasche leicht unklar und wolkig. Es hat eine schöne orangene Farbe, welche nicht ganz zum Pils passt, wobei auch die Blume nicht rein weiß ist und nach meinem Geschmack etwas zu schnell verschwindet. Im Geschmack und Geruch ist das Sognapils allerdings wirklich interessant. Es steigt ein schön herber Geruch von Grass, Gewürzen und Apfel in die Nase, wobei sich auch ein brotartiger Malzgeruch darunter mischt. Sehr spannend! Der Geschmack setzt fort was der Geruch versprochen hat. Passend säuerlich und schön bitter, wobei es auch eine klare Süße hat, was es interessant macht. Alles in allem wirklich ein "anderes Pils" wie auf der Flasche versprochen.

Brun farge med fint hvitt skum. Uklar. Lukt av malt og karamell. Medium søtlig og hint av mørke stenfrukter i smak. Lettdrikkelig. Svak bitter avslutning.

Bosbouw (1389) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2014
Mooie oranje bruine kleur met een volle crème kraag. Ruikt honing, beetje crème. Smaakt bitterzoet, suiker en iets hop en kruiden.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Caramelized cereal sugars and their light toastiness surprise the taster into looking at the label one more time...

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the shiny dark amber russet(?!). I thought I had bought a Pilsener...
-This could be a good Vienna or Amber Ale, but a Pilsener? Come on...
-This remains very drinkable.
-Mouthfeel is lean and the bubbling soft.

Flaske 0,33l. Gave fra Rune. Mørk gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som varer. Litt lacing. Skyet. Forsiktig fruktig aroma. Smaken litt tung - men et klart maltpreg. Uvariert. “Pils” var litt misvisende.
