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 (4294) - 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.

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

ClubGonzo (5359) - 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. Low and quickly disappearing off-white head. Clear golden body. Mild and relatively sweet malt aroma. Mild and sweet barley malt flavor with a dry dusty and long aftertaste. Low carbonation.

Finn (6147) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 27, 2010
Boks 0,5l. Lys gyldengul på farge. Et høyt kremaktig skum som varer en liten stund. OK aroma med innslag av søtlig malt og antydning til humle. Smaken er vassen og dominert av søtlig malt. Antydning til bitterhet i ettersmaken. Lav karbonering. KI=5

Can. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Light bitter flavor. Short very light bitter finish. Watery palate. Tasteless but then again not bad!

Rune (10927) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2010
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).
