A pretty straight-forward simple norwegian pilsner. Aroma is mostly water, with hints of malt, grains and hops. Easy to drink. I can’t really work up the enthusiasm to try to describe its nondescriptiveness any further!

Draught@Norway. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is mildly dry and the flavour is dry and mildly malty. Overall a very, very average dry beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The staple beer from Bergen, Hansa Pilsner represents the standard mainstream lager beer from the west coast of Norway. Pours a clear, orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white top. Smells sweet light malts and hints of hop, with a certain metallic tone somewhere that doesn’t quite fit the bill in my book. Taste is grainy light malts with hints of honey. Some hop presence. A bit fizzy mouthfeel. Nothing great going on here, but Hansa Pilsner is a drinkable and relatively well-balanced pilsner, about as good as the average Norwegian pilsner normally is.

On tap in Bergen. Pale yellow with a thin foam. Aroma is weak malty, flavor is the same and mouthfeel is refreshing. Maybe should be drank at summer. Not so bad like I saw some notes, is very drinkable.
