2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet. Brew #421. ABV is 5.5%. Some sediment in the bottle. Extremely pale yellow colour, slightly hazy, huge white head. Sweetish aroma of malt sugar and grassy hops. Despite some malty sweetness in the flavour, there are enough hops to make the beer feel fairly crisp. Very bitter finish and aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow body with a medium, creamy white head which seems to have a tight schedule. Nose is grains and fresh, pale malts and...well, not much else. Taste is much richer, however, with crisp, grassy hops and a smooth, light balance of sweet pale malts which never go into the Realms of Wet Cardboard or the other pitfalls of lager brewing. This beer remains fresh, crisp, light and drinkable - just as a lager should - while offering a lot of smoothness and flavor at the same time. Medium body with just the right balance between fullness and drinkability for this kind of beer, although I’d perhaps enjoy it even more with a bit "more of everything". If this was available at Norwegian grocery stores, it would certainly be a contender to my pilsener of choice in that segment, the Pilsner Urquell.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with a small white head. Clean fruity pilsener aroma of hops and malt. Taste: very dry, low sweetness, high bitterness - higher than I would expect from a pilsener. A little watery taste. High carbonation. Ok beer but not very pilsenerlike.
