3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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

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).
