Canned. Amber colour. Sweet with clean hard mouthfeel. Lightly roasty. Boring and lacking in character.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. A clear, golden lager with a small off-white head. Is’s quite malty, with hops lurking in the background, and there’s some grainy notes as well. Malty flavor, with grains and bitterness that starts off a bit late, but lasts for a while. It’s a more pleasant beer than their pilsner, but it is not a beer I’m gonna drink more of. As far as I know, it hasn’t been on the marked since 2005, and it hasn’t been missed either, even though it’s drinkable. (070324)

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml Easter-yellow can. Clear amber body with a circular, low-level foam. Tranquit aroma except for hints of fresh grass. Flavour starts with a cereal touch complemented by a vague flash of hops. Moderate sweetness. Pretty fair (05.04.2007)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Canned. Bronze colour. Vague maltiness with slight bitterness. Not much taste, and in the end the bitterness dominates. Why they bother brewing this for easter is a mystery, really, given that the only thing that makes it stand out in any way at all is the bright yellow colour of the can.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cl can. A bit more caramel malt gives a sligtly darker clour, but otherwise this is a fairly standard Norwegian pilsener. Soem sweetness, some bitterness, unlikely to offend.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can pours an orangish golden, large frothy white head, spotty lacing, with little to no carbonation. Hay/Straw on the nose, fairly grainy. Similar taste... blech. Body and mouthfeel are medium. Finishes grainy, slightly nutty. Tiz okay, certainly nothing more than what I expected for an Easter Beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A slightly-above-average lager. But what makes it an EASTER brew?? Or is that a theological question?

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Nice clear, amber body with a big white head. Some malt and a hint of hop in the aroma. Flavor is caramel malt, crisp, slightly roasted and a little bitter. Very refreshing, this is my vision of how a regular macro lager SHOULD be. I thing I might enjoyed this beer more than the good fellows rating this before me. Maybe the reason could have something to do with the surrounding. First really sunny spring day in my garden and rewarding myself after a few hours outdoor work with this refreshing beer sitting in the sun afterwards. Cant help thinking of Easter coming up in one-weeks time.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2007 Can. 2007 "easter seasonal". Mostly lasting, thin beige head. Brilliant copper colored body. Vague aromas of dryish malt, with scents of earthy hops. A little more maltier, and a little more hopbitter taste, than the average Norwegian macrolager. A little fatter body too. Drinkable, but boring and not very impressive.
And I really wonder why they want us to drink this beverage just around easter...
