2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Clear golden body with a white head. Fruity, butterscotch, buttery malts nose. Fruity malts with a pleasant grassy, cereal bitterness that lasts. Medium bodied. Preferable to most industrial lagers though I suspect brewing improvements are available.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fra fat på OMB nov13: bitterhumle er Nugget, aromahumler Saaz og Perle. Lys gylden med lite skum. Litt bitrere en norsk standardpils og med et sødmesnev av lynghonning. Lett og frisk men egentlig heller kjedelig.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft. Pale gold. Smells of apple cider and white vinegar and weak pale / pilsner malt. thankfully it tastes cleaner but still has problems. Grainy, husky, watery body, no support, green apple flaw, saccharin finish. Poor.

Brewpub: Pour is wicked pale. Aroma is grassy with some funky stuff involved in it. Minimal hops, but there be a slight bitterness. Tis very light with little taste. All too subdued, but drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear light golden with a white head. Light fruity and malty aroma with hints of herbs. Lightly sweet and malty with a slightly hoppy and bitter finish. Quite refreshing and far better than the industrial so-called Pilsners in Norway. (2012-05-26)

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very fruity taste and aroma, and bitterness to the finish. This was my favourite of the sampled beers at the brew pub, which is a bit ironic, under normal circumstances, it’s the style I would have been least likely to appreciate. A golden brew with a white head. (tap@brew pub)

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
On tap @ Oslo Mikrobryggeri, Oslo. Pale yellow body, small white head. Nose is clear notes of diacetyl aka good ol’ butter, a bit of pale malts and not much else. Pale malts, grassy hops, hints of butter again. Slightly oily palate. Yuk. My first beer from Oslo Mikrobryggeri, the oldest still-running brewpub in the country, is clearly off and out of shape. How disappointing.
