2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Bergen Ølfestival 2012. A pale golden body with a big white head. Light grainy aroma. Flavor is sweet grainy with some fruit and a certain bitterness, the bitterness is just bitter, the hop profiles it selves is practically missing. Medium body with a light aftertaste of plain, slightly harsh bitterness. Not very interesting but drinkable. I really do not see the point when a macro brewery starts a micro brewery and then brew the same standard pilsner, just a little bit more bitter with slightly more alcohol. Do they really not want to TRY?

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bergen Ølfestival. A clear, golden beer with a creamy, off-white head. The aroma had a touch of some unpleasant corn-like. Else it’s fruity and grainy. The flavour had some bitterness, at an appropriate level, but it’s mostly fruity and grainy. Medium body, nice carbonation. The finish has a hint of yellow apples, as well as grains and a generic fruitiness. Well, it’s a decent one, but I’m far from impressed. 120908

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap @ Kalfaret Brygghus, Bergen. Pours a light golden, with a small creamy head. Aroma is light fruits and caramel malts. Not a lot of taste in this one, but surprisingly for the ABV some notes of alcohol.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Kalfaret. Looks clear pale straw-coloured with a small white head. Is there any aromas here? Probably less aromas because of the slim tasting glasses. Slightly aromas of some grains and fruity esters, pear. At least more flavourful in the mouth but nothing new, just more grainy and the classic strong pale lager flavours of fruity esters towards some alcohol. Reminds me of other types of nordic strong pale lagers. Nothing to shout hurray for. Not my favourite style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Pingvinen, Bergen. Pours a clear pale golden body with a creamy lasting off-white little head. Malty and fruity aromas but quite mild and low. Somewhat watery on the palate, average carbonated and medium-bodied. Mild fruity flavors with a cactus-twist but perhaps a bit to sweet for my liking. Ends light caramelly with a medium bitterness in finish - and same with the aftertaste plus a mildly sour fruity note that I cant put my finger on. A bit boring perhaps, had hoped for more but absolutely drinkable and refreshing on a warm summer day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Pingvinen, Bergen. It’s interesting to see these former "available only at the brewpub" beers from Hansa slowly start to seep out through Bergen in general. With the "Kalfaret Brygghus" restaurant out of business except for pre-booked parties, I guess Hansa need to sell more of these batches through other means. Pours a clear pale orange body with a medium, creamy white top with some durability. Nose is pale malts and hints of honey. Taste is smooth tones of pale malts, honey and hints of alcohol. Small patches of raspberries appear suddenly and unexpectedly late in the palate. A smooth, halfway interesting and rather refreshing beer from Waldemars.

Aroma is very weak grassy hops, light malts. Taste is weak caramel malts, minimal bitterness, watery mouthfeel. Nothing special.
