Not an easy beer to rate. The reason for this is not the complexity, it’s the opposite. Basically nothing is wrong, this beer is easy drinkable with a fresh taste - and no more. This beer is made to be a neutral pils. Personally I don’t see the point of drinking a beer like this at all. I could agree there is a bit of a fruity aroma, but that’s all.

Another contract brewed pils, this one is supposed to replace Husets Pilsner which was 0.2% weaker. So far both beers are available in some Norwegian Coop stores. The other Norwegian Coop beers are now brewed by Mack, while Aass seems to continue brewing this one. It is a typical "neutral" pils, weak fruity aroma with hints of pineapple. Flavour is not offensive, but there is not much to be happy about either.
