Boks, delt med Willy. 4,5% (ikke 4,7): nesten ingen aroma, litt smak av malt og et bittelite streif av fruktighet, men kun en antydning av den essensielle ingrediensen humle. Kanskje ok på bryggekanten på Sørlandet om sommeren.

Canned 500ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko/heavy (thanks!). Yellow coloured, small white head, hint of grain in the nose. Light sweet malty, quite watery and mild grainy with acidic finish. Typical Norwegian macro.

Huge thanks to abemorsten for carrying this to Split! Poured a pale yellow-golden body with a tiny white head. Light grainy nose, vague notes of müsli. The taste is basically earthy mineral water, some grain maybe and some cardboard. Extremely light hops. Ehh... I shudder thinking of paying for this at Norwegian prices, hardly worth 50 Euro cents and I KNOW it’s much more expensive. I wonder if it was better before Hansa took over (or at least less watery, as that’s Hansa’s signature).

0.5 l can from abemorsten, thanks! It poured "pure Norwegian spring" pale yellow body with smaller head. Lemony aroma with some honey malt. Weak, lightly sweet flavor, honey malt again. Only a touch of grain and lemon hops. Thin in body with short, slightly acidic finish, due to hops I guess. Not a good pilsener anyway.

Bottle. Pours pale straw colored with a fast diminishing white head. Aroma of cardboard and vegetables. Taste is thin and watery with a very light bitterness towards the end. High carbonatet, thirst quenching qualities.

Pleasant enough for drinking to refresh thirst, but very little taste to it. Very hard to tell that it’s 4.7%.
