33cl bottle from Sundvolden Hotel. Pours golden clear yellow with a high off white head that stays long. some hoppy notes in the aroma. Some malt notes in flavor, that produces a very long aftertaste with some bitterness. A enjoyable pilsner I could drink all day. Its recomended to drink it icecold, but I prefer it at aprox. 10 degrees.

Very pale yellow. Thin pilsener, quite similar to Helt Konge, but not the same hops giving a flowery aroma. "Drink locally", the label says. Well, then you should not brew your stuff in Sweden...

330 ml bottle, contract brewed by Krönleins Bryggeri, Sweden, for Hønefoss Brygghus, Norway - another "brewhouse" that does not brew. ABV is 4.7%. Thanks to OleR for procuring the bottle. The recommendation on the label to drink it "ice cold" makes me somewhat sceptical ... Golden colour, big white head. Acceptable pilsener aroma, moderately sweetish, notes of floral hops and some fruit. The flavour is fairly fresh and crisp, moderate sweetness, too moderate hops. Definitely drinkable, but not very "special" in any way.

Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with a finger-thick white head diminishing rather quickly. The nose is quite weak and un-challenging, pale malts and fruityness with a faint peppery touch. Quite fizzy in the mouth, dry and medium bodied. Some sweetness initially, with pale malts, fruits and some peppery hops. Decent bitterness. The finish has a hint of metal added to what’s found initially. A decent pilsner, nothing more. KnutAlbert has a point, why brew in Sweden when the label says "drink locally". Hopefully the non-existant brewery will get their own brewhouse as they said was a goal, right now the label is a bit absurd. And hopefully we will see more beers of the quality found in their Christmas beer. (090818)
