3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours with a little hazyness. Golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick white head. The aroma has the hops uo front, quite grassy, and with pale malts in the back. Soft on the carbonation, medium to full body. Quite bitter, at least compared to other Norwegian pilsners. Some fruityness, and a firm malty body. Lightly bitter finish with some fruityness and malts. Certainly a fine and easy drinkable one. Dry and quenching. 120505

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2013 Rerate 500 ml shared swingtop bottle, at Mandag i Annen, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.6%. Golden colour, large white head. Standard pilsener aroma, not unpleasant, some floral and herbal notes, hints of hay and honey. The flavour is better than last time, a bit sweet, but has also distinct bittering hops throughout. I’m upping it a couple points. Original rating: On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar (remaining keg from Øl- og Akevittmessen), Stavanger. Golden colour, moderate white head. Some sweetish malts and hay in the aroma, also hints of damp basement. The flavour seems slightly "unfresh", but with tolerable hops in the finish. Hints of honey. Clearly drinkable, but not exciting.

On tap at Øl- og akevittmessen 2012 in Stavanger. Misty golden with a tan colored, creamy, inch thick head. Lovely and inviting malty, band aid and light piny hops aroma. Bitter, smooth, medium body, herbal and hoppy mouth. Nice grainy malty finish. A real treat.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy golden, almost clear. Medium off-white head that clings to the glass. Dusty hop aroma. Crisp hoppy bitterness upfront. Malts are there, but the body is quite light. The beer appears as a nice drinkable sessionable lager with a nice grainy complexity. The hops are noble hops with a earthy and slight bitter character. A really nice pilsener.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big creamy offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body. Strange, faint mealy earthy aroma with fruity pea notes. Dry-sweetish earthy fruity peas taste with mealy resiny notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish fruity mealy aftertaste with resiny grassy spicy notes. Nice and highly drinkable. Balanced and harmonic. (0.25l draft at brewpub.)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brewpub. Golden colour with a white head. Moderate malty and nice hoppy aroma. It was "difficult" to drink this with the other dark beers there. But some water fixed it. It was a really rich and fresh pils. A crime that this is not comercial available. Rich malt flavour and lovely hoppiness.

17.01.2012. On tap at the brewery. Golden yellow colour with white head. Aroma dominated by very good aromatic hopping. Smooth notes of spruce and herbs. Malty notes as well. Its very cold outside, and its warm and nice inside the brewpub. Very good mikrobrew pilsner.
