It’s very intresting to observe how two identical recipes, brewed by two different breweries can have such great gaps in the ratings. This one get 46/100, the Canadian brewed get 99/100. How come? OK, to the rating.
50 cl can. Pale yellow to straw, filtered, two-finger white head, nice rolling carbonation. Aromas from grains and hops. Rather distinct flavour of what I think may be the Saaz hops. Nice level of carbonation and bitterness. Mouthfeel is thin and a bit dry. A generic lager, but with its own identity.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Expected something out of the ordinary. And well, i didn’t get any of what i wanted. This is a completely run-of-the-mill regular norwegian macro-lager. Nothing special about it. The bottle says "Canadian type craft beer". The canadians would be outraged if they saw this!
Aroma and flavor doesn’t have much. Some breadyness and spicyness. I wouldn’t be able to tell this apart from any other norwegian macrobrew.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A pretty standard mass market task. Stale bready base and a heavy amount of carbonation. Tried on my beer tour of mediocre Norwegian lagers with Paul and Armin during the Lofoten trip in 2015.
