1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml green can, 4.5% ABV, bought at my local Prix store. Clear golden body. Initial rocky, white head, quickly diminishing but leaving rings of lace on the glass. Pale malts to the nose. Clean and weak tasting of grassy hops and malts. Short-lived bitter endnotes. Semi-dry on the swallow. Rather lively carbonated. Alright with the food (shared with Eva, Tromsø 20.02.2010).

The beeer of Oslo. Very cold i s refreshing and also can be pleasant. Slightly bitter taste with a weak hoppy aroma. But, I have to say, one of the good ones in Norway. Worth the try.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap @ Justisen, Oslo. The bottle version has been available for 149 years so far. Now sadly retired. The owners (Carlsberg) have replaced Frydenlund Pilsener in the stores with their poor canned Norwegian version of Grøn Tuborg. Shame on them! Frydenlund Pilsener is fortunatly still available (for a while) on tap in some Oslo pubs. Pours clear pale golden. Dense, mostly lasting white head. Nice lacing. Slight hoppy aroma, also sweetish grain and yeast. Weak, but well rounded malt flavors. Medium body. Short bitter/sweet finish.
