Can. Spare fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Clear sparkling body with a golden / yellow color. Aroma of light grain, hay, and somewhat corn like with a hint of fruit. Light bodied with a thin texture and a flat carbonation. Moderated sugary sweet flavor. Light sweet and short finish.

Can. Medium white head over a shiny pale golden body. Initial metal aroma, followed by sweet bread with some vague notes of fruitiness. Very sweet. Grain, bread and mild malt flavors. Hints of hops. Thin (as expected), with a sticky moutfeel.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml can. Brilliant light golden. Throws a nice tall fine-laced head that seems to want to cling to the glass, but ends up looking more like paper. Citrusy and grassy hop aroma with a distinct dry grainy malt background. Light-bodied and very dry. Flavours are very thin and grainy. Some sourness probably caused by the hops used. Green apple and apricot flavours. Finishes very dry with a drying hop bitterness. Refreshing, but somewhat thin overall, though not bad.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Biggish offwhite creamy head with some larger bubbles; light brown body with ongoing carbonation. Faintly acidic grainy wet straw aroma with some wet cardboard and metal as well. Sweetish, watery, grainy taste with some cardboard, but quite clean. Aftertaste is metal and cardboard. Overall better than I expected from Grans. (0.5l can.)

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This is actually far better than many of their beer with alcohol. Rather malty, and I would have liked more hops, but refreshing.
Don’thope for them to start brewing good beers, though, this beer is canned in Denmark, and I suspect it is brewed there, too. Or brewed in Germany, canned in Denmark, sold in Norway.
