2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle from Centra Majorstuen. Clear golden body under a medium frothy head. Fragile lacing on the glass. Aroma has got light hints of floral hops and fresh grass. Good balanced taste with sweet apples and malt adding a dash of slightly bitterness from the hops. Some of the flavour is killed by carbonated water. Light to medium bodied. An average product (02.04.2007).

500 ml bottle. Pale golden colour and crystal clear. Tall white fluffy head that clings to the glass. Light fruitiness balanced by a grainy aroma and metallic hops. Crisp flavours with a distinct hop bitterness. Light-bodied. Restrained malts. Little, or neutral, hop flavour except hop bitterness all the way through. Nice helles, but lacks character.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Pale golden with some carbonation and a white head. Malty and lightly bready aroma with some fruity notes. Nice flavor with a pleasant hoplevel, malt, floral notes and some grain. Medium to full body, close on scoring a 4 instead of the 3 it got. A quite nice beer that is bordering a higher grade on both aroma, flavor and overall. (061204)

Medium white head. Yellow body. Earthy, meaty aroma with grassy hops. Bitter malty taste of grassy, pea-like hops. Aftertaste is bitter hops with a touch of citrus and metal. Very nice. It’s really the hops that do it. (0.5l bottle.)
