A yellow beer with a white disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty and so is the flavor. A boring beer - nothing wrong though.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful it looks in it’s clear bottle with two cute puffins on the label. Amazingly nice hoppy scent and the hops continue all the way through to the aroma. The bitterness is rather subdued yet present. Soft, slightly watery with a huge head. Unique in it’s freshness. 170201

Can (thanks yngwie!). Golden colour, mediumsized white head, some lace. Aroma is maize, sweet malts, some mild grassy hops as well as some tones of rubber/metal. Flavour is harsh grass, some rubber and mild olive oil -like notes. Slightly oily palate. Ugh.

Bottled. Pale yellow, no head. Very lightly malty. The far too vague malt flavour is bready, buttery and pleasant (but you realy have to concentrate to even find it...). Low bitterness.

On tap in Olhallen, Tromso. Clear pale gold beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Dry pale malt, a little papery. A little tangerine citrus livens things up. Semi dry finish. Okay.

fiulijn (14552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2005
Pale blond color. The aroma features some coffee beans (how is it possible?). Very simple taste, watery, a bit sweet and useless.

Can from Rune drunk at home. Cheers Rune you are a star. Very pale gold clear, with thin collar of white bubbles. Some cereal on aroma, and very thin touch of lemon. It’s a pale lager. Some lemonyness on the finish. It’s not terrible, in fact as a pale lager I think its pretty good. Refreshing enough and worked well as an aperatif as i was cooking.
