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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a light yellow body with a small, diminishing head. Aroma is dry, dusty hops, hints of pale malt and wort. Not faulty, this far. The first sip reveals that this is not such a bad low alcohol, at least not among the 0 % ABV class - there is a decently balanced hop element to the sweet, wort-like maltiness and the taste is pretty clear-cut. No major brewing flaws evident. Not good by far of course, but I still think this is a bit underrated.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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)

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
bottle at home - Pours a pale yellow with a medium sized head that slowly disappears. Aromas of grass and citrus. Thin mouthfeel, but foamy ending. Tastes very light and ends dry. One of the better tasting local low alcohol beers in my opinion, but stil too watery and thin.

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

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Clear pilsener golden, thin white head. Almost aroma-less, some faint whiffs malt and hops only. Not flavorful either. Low malt level, but a fair amount of bittering hops makes it drinkable though. Skinny body. Watery mouthfeel. Mediocre.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A whiff of hoppy aroma, then it’s gone. Watery and thin. I don’t honestly know why I bother to review these beers!
