Plastic bottle shared during Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014 - Session 3. Big thanks to Rene! Pours clear, pale yellow with a creamy, white head. The nose has light dry cereal, hay and paper. Light sweet flavour, with sugary white bread, grains and cereal, dough, faint paper, straw. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Papery finish, lightly sweet, with more cereal, minimal bitterness. About what you would expect of a pale lager from an obscure country.

Thanks to Barak for providing me a glass of this at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass light yellow, small head. Dry-malty aroma. Starts very mild, dry, malty, almost no hoppy notes. Finish still mild, washy. Some metallically notes. Nothing special but I’m happy for the country tick!

Rune (11372) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2014
Kindly shared by Benzai, poured from a big plastic bottle. Diminishing white head to a clear, pale golden body. Fragile lacing. Discreet aroma of pale malts, mid-sweet. Moderate flavours of cardboard and mid-sweet grain. Papery dry ending. Diluted in the mouth. About drinkable (CBC, second day, Copenhagen 03.05.2014).

Plastic 1 l-bottle while waiting for CBC 2014. Huge thanks to Benzai! Pale golden beer with a small white head. Bready cardboard aroma, grapes, apples, papery notes. Malty papery flavor, cardboard, hop notes. Thin bodied, quite boring beer, but a new country for me.
