En helt grei billigpils. Kunne tenkt meg en del mer fylde. Men sammenlignet med Tuborg, er den nesten genial.

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Beautiful it looks in itís 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 itís freshness. 170201

Medium white coarse-laced head; yellow body. Clean, light malty aroma with some floral hops. Acidic, clean taste of light malts with dry, floral hops aftertaste. Hops grow more pronounced as the beer warms. Not bad.

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.

Can 50 CL. Apperance; Light golden, clear with a minimal white head. Aroma, Light sweet, hoppy and a sence of lemon. The flavor continues light sweet and hoppy. A beer with not too much flavor, but a nice and refreshing beer.

0.33l can. Pours a clear light unfiltered pale golden body with a small white head. Aroma is light malty with hints of lemony-hops, something floral and biscuits - or perhaps itís just some butter. Lively carbonation level, oily texture and medium to light bodied. Flavors are also light malty with notes of lemon, flower-water and hops. Not that bad for a pale lager. Canít find a single bad flavor, but itís definitely not to exciting either. Drinkable lager.

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. Itís a pale lager. Some lemonyness on the finish. Itís 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.

Less pronounced malt than their standard pilsener - more balanced. Light malt, light hops, nice colour. Not unlike a Dahls pils, and they have a geographical area where they compete strongly.
