1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a two finger white head that fades quickly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Skunky nose. Flavor is hoppy with bitter skunky finish. 39 NOK ~ $7.80 for a 330ml blue bottle apparently brewed for the Hurtigruten cruise ship. From my notes - 7/14/2008.
ABV is 4.7%

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2008 0,33 l can. Pale pils. Small white head, very thin body and doesn’t taste all that much. Quite a lot CO2 which gives it a slightly bitter aftetaste. There are better alternatives.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500 ml can . Pale golden body with a thin white head. Aroma is vague grain and apple. Flavor is light malty with some fruit and hint of a harsh, metallic bitterness. Forgettable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml can. Pale golden colour. Crystal clear. Medium-sized fluffy white head that clings to the glass. Crisp floral hop aroma with a hint of citrus. Mild malt flavours dominated by a crisp hop flavour. Light-bodied, and could have used a lot more body. Finishes with a dry powdery hop bitterness. Bland, but works nicely on a hot summer day.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Drank this over in Norway when I was in the Marine Corps during an operation called Alpine Warrior. We were living in tents in Norway during February and March, so being able to go to the beer tent and get any kind of beer was nice, although we did create a lot of yellow snow as a result. Decent basic lager that was drinkable. The aroma was probably a bit muted when the temperature was -10. Didnt have the proper glassware, I either drank it out of the bottle or a canteen-cup.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Minor white head upon a pale yellow/golden body. Well hidden aromas like the most Norwegian macrolagers.
The dry malty flavour with a light hopbitterness makes it somewhat clean and crispy. Thin-bodied with a slight bitter finish.
