rlgk (11463) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 18, 2006
Pale yellow, almost no head. Sweet, sugary aroma. Watery, not that much flavor. Maybe some bitterness in the finish.

Gr0ve (2156) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 26, 2006
330 ml bottle. Brilliant golden colour. Tall coarse white head that clings to the glass. Lemony light malty aroma with notes of noble hops. Somewhat water when it enters the mouth. It also leaves a lightly bitter feeling in the mouth. Not at all bad. In fact I’m surprised of the nice aroma in the beer and the hop balance. It could of course do with a bit more body.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 4, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, fully golden with a small, white head. Impure, malty nose. Thin body, quite watery, with some malt and a light hoppy finish. A sloppy brew. 040506

larsga (6321) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 13, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2006 Large, white, creamy head with lacing of larger bubbles. Body is copper brown. Aroma is very faint; some hops and butter, notes of caramel. Taste is thin and sourish with a strong metallic bitter taste of caramel and cardboard with notes of straw. Metallic bitterness lingers. Wow! This really sucks in a completely new way. I’ve never had a beer this bad before. The best I can say about it is that it could be worse. I would definitely prefer water over this.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2007 Bottled. Golden with a white micro head. Aroma of malt and dark rye-bread with a metallic note. Malty and metallic taste. Malt dominates the aftertaste, with some bitterness too. A real sink-filler. I am a little uncertain whether this beer deserves a 3 for aroma and flavor. Should perhaps have changed one of them into a 2. (051113)

omhper (19956) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2004
Bottled. Deep golden, average head. Rye bread aroma. Thin and somewhat metalic - but most of all empty.

Actually, I have a bottle of this beer now and then with a nothing-special-dinner. There are three reasons for such an irrational behaviour: a) It’s a low alcohol beer (in Norway, ’light’ beers are always low alcohol, while colour may actually be slightly darker than most pilseners) - and I often have to drive after dinner (yes, our drink-and-drive laws are extreme too - as well as the prices of decent beer). b)Even the faintest beer flavour is better than no beer flavour. c) This beer is the cheapest there is, and I can’t afford decent beers every day. A bit of malty flavour barely justifies this beer’s existence. The usual metallic Gran’s aftertaste makes it impossible to drink more than one bottle.
