DrnkMcDermott (2865) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2004
Canned, served on SAS flight to Copenhagen. Well, sad to say, the megabrews of other countries are too similar to American megas: the choice in most serving situations is usually pale lager. This is a little closer to a real pilsner. More golden in appearance, well-behaved head. Nice taste of lightly roasted malt, and a respectable, albeit mild, hop bitterness. Leaves a decent malt and hop aftertaste behind. It’s okay. But only okay.

Light golden, clear with white foam. Mild aroma of malt. Malt, sweet with a hint of hay in the medium bitter aftertaste, high in carbon.

Draft. Waiting for delayed flight at Bergen airport. Nothing special. Just another tastless pilsener. Should have better buy Nøgne Ø at duty free and drink it breaking the airport rules :-). And it would be cheaper!

Draught in reastaurant in Oslo. Quite enjoyed this very standard draught pilsner. Not much head and quite low carbonation, but more tasteful than a lot of standard European draughts. A little on the sweet side, but good malt and pleasant bitterness. Not great by any standards, but better than expected actually

Skinnyviking (7491) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2015
Draught at Oslo airport. Low fluffy and quickly disappearing white head. Clear golden body. Sweet malt straw aroma. Thinbodied and watery malt grass flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short finish. Boring.

Light yellow color. Grassy aroma with hints of citrus. Fresh, easy to drink, "noble" taste. Citrus also present. Light body, not much aftertaste.

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.

Kita (1313) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 1, 2014
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...
