2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear light golden with a white head leaving a fair lacing as it dissapates into a spotty film. Aroma of yeast, flowers, faint goose berries. Complex for a Norwegian industrial lager, but not very inviting. Tastes sweet with a weak bitterness that stays to the finish along with malts. Mouth feel is watery and hinting towards paint thinner.
Given a choice between this and the usual Norwegian pilsner, I’d choose this one, but I wouldn’t be very happy about it.

On tap @ Lundetangen Pub. Pale golden body with a thin white head. Vague malty aroma. Flavor is relatively sweet malty, fruity and some hops. Thin body and very average Norwegian lager, e.g. decent but boring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice aroma of malt and a hint of hops.
The taste was mutch the same as teh aroma, sweet malty flawour, hints of hops and a nice body.
Got surprised when i first tasted this beer.
Was expecting a regular mainstream beer like carlberg.
But this had some of the qualitys that you find in a staropramen lager.

330ml bottle (4.7%). Pale yellow body, slightly unclear. Frothy white head rapidly diminishing, but leaving nice lacing on the glass. Fresh, lightly malted to the nose. Light hints of malts, hops and milk in flavour, Foamy, but very thin mouthfeel (25.03.2007).
