2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
White medium-sized normal-laced head; light copper body. Light, clean floral hop aroma with faint malty notes. Bitter, floral hop taste with lovely dry, grassy hop aftertaste. Some grain/straw flavour. Metallic taste lingers. For a low alcohol this is very good.

A whiff of hoppy aroma, then it’s gone. Watery and thin. I don’t honestly know why I bother to review these beers!

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Pilsener golden with tiny impurities and a creamy, white head. Malty aroma. Very light body indeed, notes of soggy grain - rather than malt - with an edge of cardboard. You do sense a touch of bittering hops, but in the finish it has vanished completely. 221105

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 Bottle. Christianssands Bryggeri once formulated the reciepe, but had a ten year long contract. The brewing was transfered to Aass Bryggeri after the ten years, with the same reciepe. The beer is clear, light golden, with a decent white head. Both aroma and flavour is pretty non-existing, but not bad. (051106)

(Bottle). Light (which in Norway means ABV not above 2.5%) beer, contract brewed for Norgesgruppen (Norwegian grocery stores) by Christianssands Bryggeri, part of the Hansa-Borg group. Looks like a pilsener, less aroma, flavour and aftertaste. I've had this beer many times with dinner when I had to drive afterwards (and it's dirt cheap!), no offensive taste but definitely not a beer you'd buy to enjoy on its own.
