3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2006 Rerate, filtered and pasteurised, can: The size is not printed on the can (ommitting this is illegal in Norway), I suspect the size is 440 ml, not the usual 500 ml. ABV is 4.7%. Deep golden colour, decent head. Pleasant aroma of butterscotch and aromatic hops. Moderate carbonation. Flavour has toffee and butterscotch but also tolerable hops in the finish. Not bad. Original rating: Draught, at Cardinal, Stavanger. Unpasteurised, and allegedly unfiltered - but the beer was crystal clear. The pasteurised and filtered bottled version will be available from May 1. 2006. The unpasteurised keg was 1 week old upon sampling. Deep golden colour, like a Danish "Classic". Moderate head. Aroma and flavour of butterscotch (diacetyl), mellow and well rounded. Served by accident with a 100% CO2 carbonation, would normally be served with a 20% nitrogen and 80% oxygen mix. Will rerate if the bottled version is significantly different.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium white creamy head over light brown body. Milky, rubbery aroma with a hint of grass. Taste is deep sweetish malts with smoky, roasty notes and grassy, bitter aftertaste. Slightly metallic, almost nutty bitterness. Well balanced, nice. (0.44l can (it *is* stated, actually).)

440 ml bottle. Golden body with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, hops and fruity. Flavor is pretty much the same as aroma, a bit watery but quite well composed. The best regular from Lervig so far.

Can. Thin greyish head on a deep golden soft carbonatied body. Mild aroma of sweet malts. Whiffs of fruit and dry dusty hops. Taste is fairly malty-sweet, with mild bittering hops and some light sour notes in the finish. Body is light plus. Quite tasty and mouthfilling.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned. A very standard Norwegian lager, with all the element subdued to avoid offending anyone. It is understandable that this has local distribution only!
