COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Originally launced as bottle conditioned Kos på Groos as a festival beer for the Skral rock/pop festival in 2008. Spring 2009 it was relaunched as Blonde, tap only. For the Free Port Days in Kristiansand June 2009 it was sold bottle conditioned once more, this time with an extra addition of Cascade hops, under the name Porto Franco. Released on bottle as Blonde January 2011.

On the label of Kos på Groos: Kos På Groos nytes best avkjølt i sola mens man opplever god musikk. Den lille festivalen med det storet hjerte og Nøgne Ø går sammen for å lage sommerens store ølnyhet. Kos På Groos er et sommerlig og lyst festivaløl av anerkjent Nøgne Ø kvalitet.
Vi sees på Groos for litt kos i sommer. Vel bekomme.

On the label of Porto Franco: Øl har lange tradisjoner til sjøs. I et kosthold med mye salt var øl en vanlig tørstedrikk. Det holdt seg også bedre enn vann når reisen ble lang. En sjømanns liv var fullt av prøvelser. Urent farvann, sjørøvere, storm og stille kunne gjøre reisen lang og farlig. Kostholdet om bord kunne ogdå være en utfordring. På 1500-tallet ble øl varmet opp og tilsatt krutt når mannskapet hadde behov for en skikkelig oppstiver! På denne tiden var det vanlig at 20 mann delte en tønne øl i døgnet.Det utgjør ca 6,5 liter pr mann. Porto Franco og Nøgne Ø anbefaler et langt mer moderat inntak. Et lite glass godt øl nytes gjerne sammen med gode venner en varm sommerdag.

English:Blonde Ale is refreshing anytime, but especially after working outside om a hot summer day.Serve at 6 degrees C and pair with seafood and other light meals. Nøgne Ø ales are bottle conditioned, so pour carefully if you do not want to disturb the yeast sediments in the bottle.

tbonde (163) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
35 cl glass from tap@bar at Aker Brygge Oslo@approx 8 degrees C. Pours hazy yellow with very small and quickly subsiding white head. Malty aroma with clear citrus hop hints. Taste is malty with a touch of yeast and a pleasantly balanced hop. Slightly sweet and bitter aftertaste. Very clean tasting blonde in the Belgian tradition but with low ABV which also accounts for the somewhat thin texture. Very drinkable....

Bottle at home. Cloudy golden with white head. Aroma of grass, herbs, yeast, floral. Taste bitter herbs with yeast, dust; somehow unpleasant. Thin bodied.

PalCabral (143) - SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Coop, Trysil. Pretty much a poor saison. The low alcohol doesn’t help. One dimensional.

Kanskje ikke like god som Saison, men også en god og forholdsvis mild øl som funker som kosedrikke med eller uten mat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
