visionthing (2578) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours reddish dark brown with a small light brown head. Aroma of hops, caramel and slightly roasted malt. Sweet caramel taste with a nice dry and bitter finish. Very tasty and one of the best "shop strenght" beers in Norway.

Sigmund (4933) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2009
500 ml bottle, bought at Vaaland, Bryne. "Grocery store version" at 4.7% ABV. Mahogany coloured beer (I’ve never seen "amber" this dark!), moderate but lasting creamy head. Moderate but pleasant aroma of Cascade hops, hints of malts and caramel too. The flavour has dominant Cascade on a (barely) sufficient malty background, hints of burnt caramel but the beer is not sweet. Bitter aftertaste. The mouthfeel is slightly thinner than the stronger version. This is one of the better non-bottle-conditioned beers on the Norwegian grocery store market, well worth sampling.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2009
Bottle, thx to Tarjei. A clear, brown beer with a finger-thick beige head leaving some fine lacings. Quite citrusy, piney nose, with enough maltyness to bring it to a nice balance. The malts give some sweet, bready, lightly roasted scents. Caramel, bready and roasted malts, citrusy, grapefruity hops with pinecones and a fine bitterness. Medium body, and a nicely balanced finish. Sure one of the best low-strenght beers available in Norway. Really pleasant and quaffable. (090418)

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2012
0.5l bottle @ Henrik, Bergen. This one pours a clear deep deep amber body with a nice big and lasting fluffy off-white head. Low aroma on this one. Some malt sweetness, a hint of fruitiness also and if I look deep and really really concentrate I actually find some thin hints of hops. It has a soft oily mouthfeel and a soft to average carbonation level. Nice flavors. It’s light malty and a hint of sweet caramel. Also some buttery tones and in the finish I get quite a lot of bitter hops. A nice one this one.

Alexus (240) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2012
0,5L bottle from Helgø Meny. Pours clear, deep brown with a nice tan head. Aromas of caramel and toffee. Pleasent taste of toffee and some dark malts. Smooth bittnerness. A beer I often buy at the store.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of StoreMy, thanks man. :-) Pours a deep coppery amber body with a small white head. Aroma is mild malty notes with hints of caramel and yeast. Taste is burnt sugar, caramel, dry hop tones and hints of honey. Balanced and rather nice, with a tiny sting of burn sugar which makes it all a bit more interesting. After tasting several of Berentsen’s Norwegian grocery store-strength beer, I must say I’m impressed with the high level of quality and taste in these relatively low ABV beers.

Beer4000 (4395) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Clear amber body with a nice beige head. Nice aroma of citric fruit and caramel malt. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, citric fruit, toast and balanced bitterness. Medium body and decent aftertaste. Naturally a bit lighter in body than the original 5,5 % ABV version, but they manage to capture most of the profile here. A nice beer for the Norwegian grocery marked.
