Arve_Christian (3277) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
On bottle from Meny Vollebekk. Pale golden color, some foam( not much) low carbonation. Aromas of boiled vegetables, some fruitiness. And light hops- but also some " strange slightly unpleasant aromas". Light body & complexity. Ok bitterness. Not impressive

Vighals (1396) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 23, 2014
Gul klar i fargen med tynt hvitt skum. Malt og kornlukt. Lett, lite smak litt søtlig malt er det eneste. Daff, skuffende øl. Flaske og etikett trekker opp.

33cl bottle from Meny Ringnes park. Pours clear golden with a white head. BB date is October 2013, but it smells old and unfresh. I’ve tried this several times before, but not in the last couple of years. This one is far from how I remember it, no longer a refreshing and hoppy pilsner, but it probably infected like other reviewers are writing about. Overripe or slightly rotten apples is the aroma with notes of malt and vinegar. Slightly sour, hints of bitterness and actually quite unpleasant. It used to be a nice summer beer, and I still hope to try a bottle like that again. Will happily re-rate then.

Holmen1 (2779) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 25, 2013
Flaske på Cardinaltreff april-13: litt (men ikke overbevisende mye) mer smak enn norsk standard. Noe søtlig. Flott etikett.

rlgk (11462) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle, from a trade with Cunningham. Clear golden, quite carbonated beer with a rich white head. Malty aroma, a little sour. Fruity flavor with sourish notes, bready, some grass. Probably a decent pilsner, but not all fresh.

Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 5, 2011
Flaske 0,33l spandert av og delt med Rune under rateseanse hjemme hos ham 13 Okt 11. Lys gylden med et høyt kremaktig skum som varer. Uklar. Svakt syrlig aroma med innslag av gress. Smaken syrlig. Lite annet. Tørr ettersmak. Veldig pen etikett. Etterlater tvil om syrligheten er planlagt eller om det er infisert. I alle fall ikke noe stort øl. KI=3 (Centra, Majorstua, Oslo).
