2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can that someone left at my house, but you can get it everywhere anyway. Crystal clear golden with loads of bubbles rushing to the big white head that dissipates rather fast into a ring. Aroma is metallic skunky, sweet typical industrial lager malts, some light, faint fruitiness to it and a hint of citrus. Well balanced flavourwise between sweetness and the bitterness that comes in after about half a second. The finish is rather sweet and dull. There is also a hint of citric acidity in the finish, which I suspect comes from the alleged wheat malts. Body is light, sparkly and high carbonation, but all in all quite thin. Absolutely forgettable, but not at all undrinkable.

Tap at Naboen Pub, Nordheimsund, 26/10/14. Ornately lacing...well, lager gold. Aroma of honeyed corn, dewy grass and glue. Clean, tame, adjunct-laden, corn-flavoured honey and cashew fizzwatter. Pleasant enough.

Can 500ml (AIH40)
Golden color, small white head. Sweet malty, apple fruity aroma. Light-bodied. Sweetish green apple fruity malty flavor and low bitterness. Another sweet industrial lager without much of hops. Similar to Olvi’s pale lagers in Finland.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear golden. Residing, white head. Sugary sweet aroma, with little or no malt or hops, but with a slight hint of unripe apples. Neutral taste, with a minor hint of bitterness in very short aftertaste. Exceptionally waterish mouthfeel.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours pale color with a small head. Aroma is grassy and grainy, a bit buttery too with metallic notes. When you have 12 it doesn't really matter. Yeah!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gylden farge med en fin hvit topp. Frisk malt sødme aroma med noe citrus. "Premium" gir en fyldig rund munnenfølelse. Velbalansert sødme med litt frisk fruktighet i smaken. Faktisk min favoritt i Hansa sin pale lager portefølje. Men frisk eleganse er kanskje å ta i...

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.5L beige aluminium-can with 4.5% abv, b@Eurospar.
White fluffy head diminishes completely on a golden sparkling body.
Scents of sweet malts, grains, marzipan, apples, cream cake.
Tastes sweet malts, apples, pears, grains, some hops back there and a little grainy bitterness underneath.
Easy on palate, not obviously watery. Ending mild and not dominating, as many other Hansas are. Fresh lager, but it is written "pilsner" on the can, which is not correct, as far as I concern. It’s a pale lager, an alright one.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2013 Dette er en øl du drikker dersom det ikke er mye annet som er tilgjengelig. Det bør være sommer også! Gul farge, med endel skum. Lukter søtt høy. Smaker stort sett vann, noe høy og litt humle.
