Well, I like the place, and then I donít. Quite a few of their own beers are really boring, but they have a very decent selection of other beers. Itís a quite good looking place, but then itís also some kind of sportspub. Service has been quite good, although a bit slow on my visits, so no complaints there, but the area and clientel isnít my cup of tea, so itís never a top priority for me to visit Amundsen. But itís still worth a visit if in Olso, thatís for sure.

This place is a bit of a victim of trying to be a tourist trap, a sports bar, a place for after work drinking and dining and a serious beer bar/brewpub.
There are some very fine beers here, both bottled and on tap, but try to find a quiet time to visit. Sampler glasses of all the draft beers.

This brewpub is located right in the city center, so there are many tourists. Itís big, the interior is nice looking and you can sit outside if you fancy. The service is good and polite. They have lots of taps with just three of their own at my visit. The other taps include both industrial lager and lambic, so there is something for everyone. The best part this place though is their bottle menu - with particular focus on the vintage selection. In here you will find many lambics, many vintages of Belgian favorites and even the illusive Westvleteren Red Cap. It cost me 625 NOK, which was cheaper than DHVL, where they charged 100 EUR. There were four left after I had mine.

A nice English looking pub in the center of Oslo. A sparse selection of they own beers, but they make up for it with a good selection of Scandinavian breweries and some international selections as well.

Overall a fun experience, as there are tons of bottles to choose from, and the service was quite good (although understandably got more strained as the place got busy). British pub feel and relatively spacious but seemingly quite popular...take care not to go at busy times unless you like that kind of bustling, noisy atmosphere.

First of all, the beer selection at Amundsen is pretty impressive (for Oslo) so the place certainly deserves kudos for trying.
However, the rare and more interesting beers (such as Thomas Hardyís Ale 2007, 2008, Fullerís Brewers Reserve, Rodenbach Grand Cru etc) are offlimits. Despite being on display behind the bar and, in some cases on the menu, I often get told that they are not for sale yet. Leaving a number of good but more ordinary beers, many from England and Germany. So I often find myself looking through the menu feeling a lack of enthusiam, compared to the best beer bars in Oslo.
The draft beer selection is good, but not outstanding - Olympen, HŚndverkerstuene and Schouskjelleren all have more craft beer on draft. And their own brews are pretty standard for a brewpub (pale ale, amber) but nothing strong or rich (such as imperial stout or even porters).
But what really irks me about Amundsen is the slow service there and the total lack of interest in beer shown by just about every person working in the bar. Few of them knows what beer they have and often have to consult others, and they have no ideas about beer styles. For a place with such a good beer cellar I find this appalling. You need good people to sell good beer!
Another issue I have with Amundsen is their prices. Though they have improved since opening, many beers are still way overpriced. A bottle of ∆gir IPA costs NOK 106 (Ä 13,50), Rochefort 10 costs NOK 168 (Ä21,50) - a 100 NOK more than Vinmonopolet - and I paid 380 NOK (Ä48) for a bottle of Boon Marriage Parfait!
But I shall give Amundsen plus for their good, homemade burger and for their large bottle beer menu.

Visited the brewpub and rstaurant in the daytime, quiet then, and the TV screens were off. Their own brewed beers are only part of the lure here, they have also a wide selection of other beers, with short tasting notes in the menu. They even had Westvleteren 12 and 8, only place in Norway Iíve seen them. Nice interior, central location, friendly staff. Decent food too. Will surely come back.

Visited in 2012. Very nice selection and pretty decent prices on the rare beers. The bottle selection was a surprise with some very rare bottles for sale, also some vintage stuff.

Spent most of the day here the last May day. Friendly staff, good selection - they even have a exclusive beer "cellar" that is listed at the back of their beer menu. This place is dedicated to beer. The kitchen uses beer in their food and then of course their own inhouse brewing. A natural stop next time I visit the capital.
