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.

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.

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.

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...

djoeye (1855) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 25, 2013
Can 0.5L abv 4.5%, bought at supermarket. Fruity malts and grassy hops to the nose, faint notes of berry heather. Fragile head that diminishes fast upon the bright golden body, leaving spread scattered spots and almost no lacing. Tastes grains, hops, some fruity malts, a little bitterness in the back. A bit watery metallic to palate. Ends with bread, hops, cardboard, grains, a little bitter underneath. An average but a bit watery pale pal, and should be served chilled. Goes alright with dinners, potato chips and snacks.

Poor pilsner. Quite refreshing, but the aftertaste is really bad, and in general lack of bitterness and sweetness.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2013 Nothing special. Anonymous beer that doesn’t stand out from the rest of the macrobrews in Norway. Not a suprise because it’s brewed by Ringnes! If you want to take the chance it can be bought at Meny Albert in Kristiansand. Very expensive though for a so boring beer. 29.90,- NOK for 0.5l.
