2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draught at a pub in Oslo. I haven’t tried this for years, but it used to be a favourite when I lived in Oslo years ago. It is a typical German-Pilsner style, straw-coloured with a healthy white head. Good aromas of malts and grassy hops. The taste is extremely satisfying, especially compared with some of the Far Eastern beers I have sampled lately. There is a good, full maltiness which is rich and mouth-filling. The hops are fresh and grassy with a fruity bitterness to them. There is a good balance here. I was expecting something rather bland, and I was pleasantly surprised that this was a tasty and well-made beer. I have not tried it from a can, but this sample on draught was very pleasant.

330 ml. Can from Oslo Airport. Piana nawet zadowalajaca jak na Pilsnera. Kolor zlocisty i czysty. Zapach chmielowy ale lekko wyczuwalny. Smak typowy jak na Pilsnera, moze niezbyt gozki, ale tez nie nachalnie slodowy. Srednia klasa Pilsnera, Ale Niemieckie sporo lepsze sa piwa w tym stylu.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with medium frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of grainy malt, herbal hops and some notes of flowers. Taste starts with moderate sweet malt, follows by slight grainy and vegetably sourness, dry mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Could be better...

Can somewhere from a little convenience store near the forest. Golden with small head. Sweet grains with some bread and light corn, light herbal touch. Some light citrus notes. Light sweet with nice bitter finish. Pretty decent actually, light sweetness and very pleasant crisp finish. Didn't expect this

Strågul med tynt skum. Desidert det øllet jeg har drukket mest. God pils, men noe anonym.

Bottle from the Mini Pris in downtown Alesund. Poured a crystal clear light straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is light malt, light hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a light hoppy, malt palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Far from being the best Pilsner in Norway!
