the hop/malt balance seemed off kilter to me. dry hoppiness came in and out, weak backbone of malt, some corn and honey, a bit of ginger maybe? i duno. a bit tight on the palette. not real great.

Pours slightly unclear hay. Malty, some water, fruit, alcohol(!). Lots of carbonation. Some sweetness, more bitterness and actually a bit salty. Good lager. Extremely expensive in Norway though...

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle. Clear golden body with a nice white head. Aroma of citric fruity, some grassy hops and clean, light malt. Flavor is mild malty, citric fruit and a sharp bitterness. Medium body and biter aftertaste. Quite nice easy drinkable beer, but a bit to sharp on the bitterness to be in balance. Feels a bit plain in the end.
