KnutAlbert (5776) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 11, 2009
Fairly standard lager. More packaging than content here, I’m afraid. The label says world class, I don’t know about that. Some malty sweetness, flowery hops. But not much.

gunnar (4869) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours weak golden, with a 1 " white firm head. Weak malty aroma, paired with weaker hops. Refreshing malty taste base, pity there is not much hop here,but enough to make this a good thirst quencher.

Sigmund (4820) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2009
330 ml bottle, thanks to OleR. Brewed for Hønefoss Brygghus, Norway, by Krönleins Bryggeri, Sweden. ABV is 4.7%. One has to accept that Hønefoss Brygghus is another "brewhouse" that does not brew (the slogan "Drink locally" is thus ridiculous) , but why on earth do they commission a pale lager in the Norwegian style "sommerøl", contract brewed by mediocre Krönleins? Norwegian macro breweries have plenty of boring "sommerøl", there is absolutely no need for another one. HB’s Juleøl (a stout brewed by Det Lille Bryggeriet) was decent, this one is not undrinkable, but certainly no masterpiece. The recommendation on the label "To be drunk ice cold" gives you some idea about what to expect. Deep golden colour, much darker than other "sommerøl", moderate white head. Sweetish unpleasant aroma, typical Swedish macro. Notes of artificial candy and rotting vegetables. The flavour is fortunately much better than the aroma, some moderate malts and hops are around, and the beer is not too sweet.
