larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 22, 2006
Medium, white, coarse-laced head shrinks quickly into a thin foam cover on a pale yellow body with some ongoing carbonation. Faint floral hop aroma with notes of freshly sawed wood. Taste is lots of floral hops, somewhat bitter, with the same wooden notes towards the end. Very light, and clean-tasting, and entirely dominated by the hops. Easily the best Norwegian Pilsener I’ve had. This is quite good, thanks to the hops.

Quite refreshing, with the exact amount of pilsner notes in the aroma and the balance between bitterness and sweetness I hoped for. Not exciting, but good.

brunnsbe (70) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2007
Interesting aroma, maybe raspberry or something similar coming from the yeast. Seems that is was brewed with quite mineralic water which makes it medicinal in a interesting way.

Cunningham (4000) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Bottle in Longyearbyen at Svalbard, Norway (Nothpole). Golden colour with a white head. A very standard lager beer, nice and easy drinkable. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma and flavour.

The shortest beer I have tested....but it’s not bad. Modern style, low in volume, but acceptable hops.

RuneStumo (2129) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2010
13.03.2004. 0,5l Can. God pils, uten særlig særpreg. Syrlig friskhet trekker opp intrykket. Lettdrikkelig tørsteslukker.

Mack Isbjørn is back on the market, found a 33 cl metallic blue can, brewed Feb 6th 2014 (BBF.Feb6th2015). It pours a fluffy white head on the pale pale straw yellow body. Citric scents, lemon cream, grass, apple. Malts appear in taste, grainy hops, bread, dough. Slightly yeasty to palate, not at all as watery as expected. Finished with lemon-like malts, bread, malted barley aroma fades out, good. Overall quite tasty, considering that I drank it only few days after it was tapped. Easy to drink.
