01.01.2011. 0,5l Can. Pale yellow colour with white head. Rather weak malty aroma. There is a sharp bitterness from both aroma hops and bitter hops. I think this is a very good pilsner!

bergstaden (3260) - Røros, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2010
golden with white head - hints of malt in the aroma - good malt body along with some hop bitterness - ok

tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2010
Pours clear golden with small short lived white head. Malty, grassy aroma with hints of alcohol. Flavor is full bodied and very malty, a bit sweet and hoppy, nice and tasty. Also well balanced and lean on palate. Finishes with acidy crispy and long lived bitter hoppy aftertaste.

norsk (13) - USA - JUN 7, 2010
Golden yellow, creamy foam, light yeasty flavor--helps to drink it on the docks in Norway!

ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2010
Pours a clear, pale orange body with a dense, foamy top. Smell is faint of grassy hops and hints of can-metal. Taste is light malts with some hop bitterness in the back. Seems well rounded, without being assertive in any way. Very drinkable. I miss the creamy maltiness and distinct dry hop balance of a high standard pilsner, but Frydenlund pilsner isn’t so horribly bad - at least not for a macrobrew. It’s just not so horribly good either.
