2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle thanks to Cunningham, straight from Norway! Color is gold and head is thin to medium. Taste is medium bitter which is ok. Carbonation is lively and aroma is quite cerealy but also balanced.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe - Clear golden yellow, frothy white head, looks as good as any Lager/Pilsener/Kölsch/Helles style beer. Nose is a feint lemony kind of tinge, taste has something similar, with a not too bad mouthfeel. Quite enjoyed this to be honest.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Golden color with a frothy white head. Ok lacing.
Aroma: The aroma was unfortunately not very inviting. Cabbage & malt. (Mybee it was the lovely Akerselva that had some scheisse flowing by at that moment)
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a mild bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Slightly sweet malty and mild hoppy.
Overall impression: It was better than expected. Especially after that aroma. Fresh and easy drinkable.
Personal stats: Bottle from a trade with KnutAlbert. Enjoyed a lovely afternoon in Oslo by the river, together with Mr Visionthing and Mr Arve_Christian.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33cl bottle (shared by Cunningham - thanks!) Pours golden with a large, white head. Fairly malty aroma with sweet corn, cooked vegetables and hints of fruits. Fairly sweet, not much bitterness, but hints of hops and some bitterness in the finish. Medium to light body. Ok pale lager, but far from interesting. (2013-04-19)

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Beers of Europe. By no means the worst pale lager but nothing much going for it either. Pale, lager, carbonated.
