Quite fruity but there is also malts and hops. I thought this was a most accomplished lager brew. Amber colour and a medium white head. (tap@brew pub)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
14.10.2011. On tap at the brewpub. Pale golden colour with white head. Aroma is medium malty with lots of aromatc hopping. Its a little oily and low on bitterness, and thereby not very refreshing. Good aromatic hop flavours. Infected by som kind of butterscotch, is that diacetyl?

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pint, from tap @Oslo Mikrobryggeri. Unclear orangey golden. Low offwhite head. Sweet buttery malt aroma. Taste is sweet malty. Creamed caramel and toffee. Moderate hop bitterness. Sour undertones. Feels kind of harsh in the mouth. Medium full. Unfresh, light bittersweet ending. Not very refreshing, suffers from a noticable dose of diacetyl.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Full pint, on tap at the brewpub where it was served comfortably chilled. 5.2% abv., according to the barman. Hazy amber, towards orange, body colour, topped by a see-through layer. Aroma of pale malts and dry fruity hops. Hints of lemon, wheat, grain and dusty hops in flavour. Half dry ending. Foamy in the mouth. Soft, smooth and easy to quaff. True to the house standard (Oslo, 27.09.2011).

Hazy amber, lazy carbonation, thin head.
Full malty body. Cereals citrus, crisp bitter finish
A little yeasty but not unpleasantly so.
Id like more lagers like this om the Norwegian market, a lot more flavourr than your average industrial pils
