Skinnyviking (8704) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Can. High white and creamy lasting head leaving nice curtains. Slightly hazy yellow body. Weak barley malt aroma, on the sweet side, with a touch of lemon. Relatively carbonated mild and sweet without much hops bitterness. Short aftertaste. Quite refreshing htoun, on a wark day like todday.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2008
330 ml can at London tasting, May 2007 (courtesy Rune & Finn). BBE 10 July 2008. Hazy yellow colour with very little condition. Smells of very little with perhaps a hint of cereal. Sweetish and soft on the palate, with no discernible bitterness and very little hop presence. Still it is fairly clean and entirely inoffensive. Not sure the adjective "Fine" is entirely appropriate, although "Fluid" certainly is!

larsga (7297) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2007
Medium shiny white lasting head. Pale yellow body. Faint apple and malt aroma. Light grassy apple and malt taste with buttery notes. Too watery. Dryish perfumy, papery malty aftertaste. It’s not really bad, but too artificial and perfumy for my tastes. Could do without the butter, too. (0.33l can from Ica Gourmet, Aker Brygge, Oslo.)

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2008
A Mes rate: Can at the Oi Oi Saveloy tasting at Chris O’s.
Very pale gold with a slight hint of a head. Fairly sweet and plenty of corn and cereal. Not too full of metal or card. Just bland as hell but I’ve had more offensive beers.

Sigmund (6719) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2007
330 ml slimline can. ABV is 4.7%. Brewed with ecological (organic) ingredients. Crystal clear pale yellow beer with big bubbles and a decent white head. Sweetish aroma, fruity first, then only some maize and grain notes remain. Fizzy mouthfeel. Sweetish and sugary flavour, some malty notes, minimal bitterness. Drinkable, but far from interesting, and over-priced.

KnutAlbert (6712) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2007
Extremely light (and very expensive). Some malty body, a little citrus in the finish. Fancy packaging, but I don’t know what they want with this.

Finn (6291) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2008
Can 0,33l. Pale golden colored. A large creamy head. Modest aroma of grain. Soft mouthfeel. Flavor dominated by malt. Some sourishness. Aftertaste of cardboard leaving you with a dry sourish impression.

Beer5000 (5905) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2008
330ml can. Clear golden body with a moderate fast disappearing white head. Aroma is vague sweet malty and grassy. Flavor is thin, fruity, refreshing with some bitterness. Not very complex and quite boring but drinkable.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2007
Pours brilliant straw-yellow. Dense and mostly diminishing medium white head. Light citric and grassy hop aroma along with some nice whiffs of sweetish pale malts and freshly baked bread. Taste is light sweet lemon with a mild and gentle hopbitterness. Dry and subdued maltflavors. Feels a little watered down in the mouth. Mild bitterness in the finish. Slim body. Overall a well balanced, elegant and quenching pale lager.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2008
At May Ratebeer London Gathering at Chris O’s. Thanks to Finn for this one. Pale gold. Some malt in the aroma. Sweet rather wheaty taste with some sourness and late bitterness. Not bad. But I don’t like the name, which probably sounds fine in Norwegian.
