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".

garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 14, 2008
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.

OleR (4752) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 9, 2007
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.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2006
33 cl bottle. Golden clear colour with a nice white head. Light aroma of sweetness from the malt. Sweet flavour of a touch of hops and caramel, someway dull and uninteresting.
