2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours light golded with tiny white head. Smells like grains. Taste like grains, and a hint of fruit and hops. Light, med carbonation. A little cheap tasting, but has more flavor than other mass produced pale lagers.

Bottle from sb Strømstad enjoyed at a Hvaler cottage
Quite pale golden, white head with big ugly bubbles. Smells of grass and grain. Qutite malty taste for a pale lager, good supportive sweetness, i will still call it light sweet., dry on the palate. Ligtht bitter finish too, some grassy hops. Medium bodied. Surprised by the standard of this beer. I expected low quality but it actually is quite descent with a flavor
