Won a gold medal at the 'Monde Selection Bruxelles'1987. Ringnes took over and closed Nordlands Bryggeri in Bodø shortly after, but continued brewing Nordlandspils at E.C. Dahls Bryggeri (another Ringnes subsidiary) in Trondheim. The beer has a golden colour with a faint tinge of brown, and a malty aroma with a faint scent of flowery meadow and fruit. The flavour is aromatic and supple, with sweetish notes of mellow fruits.

Nonshaugen (337) - Fetsund, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2015
50 cl can. Golden yellow, fairly carbonated. Aroma is light malts and white bread. Well carbonated and bitter, but not much flavour of anything else than the usual pilsner malt. Thin and watery mouthfeel. By no means a bad beer, the bittering hops stay with you for a long time at the back of your tongue and mouth. But, again, that’s about all I get in reward for drinking it.

It may not be the best lager in the world, but its the best mass market Norwegian one... Surprisingly dry with some decent hop character.

metalspice (539) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
Klar ravfarget med lavt skum. Duft av honning, gress og et forstyrrende element av kokte grønnsaker. Grei friskhet med litt gress og karamell. Lett bitterhet mot slutten

Above average for a Norwegian macrobrew. Just about the right combination of bitterness and sweetness to win the competition against the likes of Hansa, Dahls or Turborg pilseners. No aftertaste, which for a major Norwegian pilsener is better than the alternative. Average color and mouthfeel.

Holmen2 (2636) - NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
From can 11.10.14. Clear golden. Quickly diminishing white head. Sweet aroma and taste, with minor hints of malt, hops and wine gum. Soft bitterness in aftertaste. No off-tastes except.the wine gum. Decent drinkability.

visionthing (4464) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2014
33cl bottle from Meny Bjølsen. Pours clear pale golden. Mild grainy with hints of honey and mild grassy hops. Medium sweet with a light, but noticeable bitterness. Quite standard industrial, far from the worst, but also far from exiting. Drinkable, but boring.

Arve_Christian (4591) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2014
On bottle from Meny Løren. Golden color, ok foam. Low aroma intensity, but what can be found are; some malt, very light citrus and hops and some citrus in the finish: most dominating aroma is boiled vegetables. Light body & complexity. Good bitterness. A small notch above std macros

Lys gylden, lite skum. Aroma av malt. Søtlig aroma. Smaker malt. Tynn konsistens. Ikke helt topp...
