COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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".

tkrjukoff (3900) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2010
Pours clear golden with small short lived white head. Malty, grassy aroma with hints of alcohol. Flavor is full bodied and very malty, a bit sweet and hoppy, nice and tasty. Also well balanced and lean on palate. Finishes with acidy crispy and long lived bitter hoppy aftertaste.

ClubGonzo (3526) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2010
Pours a clear, pale orange body with a dense, foamy top. Smell is faint of grassy hops and hints of can-metal. Taste is light malts with some hop bitterness in the back. Seems well rounded, without being assertive in any way. Very drinkable. I miss the creamy maltiness and distinct dry hop balance of a high standard pilsner, but Frydenlund pilsner isn’t so horribly bad - at least not for a macrobrew. It’s just not so horribly good either.

Can, 4.5%. Sourish grain aroma. Clear golden colour. Small stable frothy white head. The flavour also has some sour grain notes. Papery malt flavour. Not thin or watery, at least.

01.01.2011. 0,5l Can. Pale yellow colour with white head. Rather weak malty aroma. There is a sharp bitterness from both aroma hops and bitter hops. I think this is a very good pilsner!

Golden yellow, creamy foam, light yeasty flavor--helps to drink it on the docks in Norway!
