Brewed by Ringnes, who took over and closed traditional Oslo rivals Frydenlund many years ago. Frydenlund's yeast was allegedly preserved, and revived in this pilsener with its "characteristic rich and rounded flavour".

God lukt. Smaker godt og fyller munnen med god smak. Lett å drikke, og den metter godt

Yellow colour with a white head. Moderate sweet malt aroma. Also a mild moderate sweet flavour with some light hoppy notes. A very uncomplex lager, easy drinkable.
[Can. Leftover from the weekend. Someone forgot it in my refrigerator.

Ringnes can't really make any worthwhile beer (apart from strong christmas beers, they are excellent!) in my oppinion. They know how to buy up and destroy other breweries (Schous) and in turn be taken over by slightly more "evil" Carlsberg (ok, I joke a bit but, you get my meaning). They took over Frydenlund and raced that tradition off the Oslo map, but unlike the other Oslo rival Schous, they claim to have kept the Frydenlund yeast, and that is why this (and fatøl) still exisits. In my oppinion Norways finest macro pilsner is Frydenlund, be it in a can or on draft. I will gladly go to a different place when I go out to drink "normal" beer, in order to get Frydenlund. Well, anything to avoid drinking Bergens Hansa in Oslo really. Too bad it's not a proper brewery anymore, but it could have been worse (Schous). ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

50ml can. Soft norwegian pilsener. Slightly grainy aroma with a tiny hint of citrus. Pilsener in the pilsener tradition. Well balanced, a bit too standard. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Standard light gold coloured pilsner. Not much smell, metallic taste. Too soft carbonation. There are better Norwegian pilsners out there. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Light golden clear with a white head that leaves rings inside the glas. Smells of hay and malts with some fruityness. Taste is neutral. Dry at first but some malts fruity taste and later on. The finish is good but a little too discrete. I wish for some more hops. When this beer disappeared some years ago i really missed it. Now i can’t remember why i missed it. there are better norwegian standard pilseners out there
