1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Poured out of a can. It should have stayed in there. Pale golden color, almost no head. Aroma of sweet malts, some grass notes. Harsh taste of malt, with a thin watery sweet finish.

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%.

Can at home
Pale, white head with ugly big bubbles. Smells of malts and cooked vegetables, some dust too. Light sweet, dms, not very nice actually. The palate is quite strange on this one, i don’t like it but i can’t really explain what it is. It feels like when you get soap in the mouth
