Sigmund (8097) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2009
330 ml bottle, contract brewed by Krönleins Bryggeri, Sweden, for Hønefoss Brygghus, Norway - another "brewhouse" that does not brew. ABV is 4.7%. Thanks to OleR for procuring the bottle. The recommendation on the label to drink it "ice cold" makes me somewhat sceptical ... Golden colour, big white head. Acceptable pilsener aroma, moderately sweetish, notes of floral hops and some fruit. The flavour is fairly fresh and crisp, moderate sweetness, too moderate hops. Definitely drinkable, but not very "special" in any way.

Small white head. Pale yellow body. Artificial perfumy mealy papery aroma. Dry-sweetish grassy mealy papery taste. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dry grassy strawy aftertaste with mealy notes. Not very good. Ɛ.33l bottle from KnutAlbert.)

Beer5000 (6865) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pale golden body with a fast disappearing white head. Weak in aroma, slightly fruity. Easy to drink, light fruity and weak malty, almost no bitterness. Thin and watery body, no aftertaste. Waste of time and money.

Very pale yellow. Thin pilsener, quite similar to Helt Konge, but not the same hops giving a flowery aroma. "Drink locally", the label says. Well, then you should not brew your stuff in Sweden...

Holmen1 (6740) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2014
Fra fat på Kooperativen Nordsiden, Hønefoss: den hyggelige atmosfæren hjelper ikke, dette er en tynn og intetsigende industrilager. Lite aroma, skummet forsvinner nesten før du får sagt skål. Ettersmaken var heldigvis så kort at det var fort gjort å tømme glasset og bestille noe ordentlig fra det lille men fine utvalget fatøl (denne kvelden hadde de bl.a. Ægir, Austmann, Brewdog og Schneider).

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2009
0.33 L bottle from Rema 1000 Hønefoss. A filmy greyish head coating a clear, light gold colored body. Sweetish malts and apples in the aroma. Light sugary malt flavor with earth tones. Some fruitiness too, with an artifical twist. Light-bodied, fairly clean mouthfeel. Noticable bitterness and a certain dryness in the finish. Kind of decent, but certainly not very interesting.

abemorsten (3690) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 13, 2009
Pours clear yellow golden with a frothy white head that lasts. Good lacing. Aroma is also inviting. Malt, light syrup, flowers and herbs. Unfortunately the good impression stops once in the mouth. tastes like sweet bun dough. Easily swallowed and forgotten @ Cardinal 11.11.2009

Gr0ve (2176) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 17, 2010
330 ml bottle. Deep amber. Crystal clear. Tall white fine-laced head. Malty aroma with hints of bread and caramel. Crisp hop bitterness with a certain fruitiness. Notes of apricot and grass. Quite flavorful pilsener with strong flavours of straw and bittering hops.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2010
33 cl bottle at home. Clear golden color. Disappering white head. Aroma is light malt and some fruity hops. Flavor is on the sweet side, almost no bitterness and very thin body.

LarsEngen (367) - Sandvika, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2009
33cl bottle from Sundvolden Hotel. Pours golden clear yellow with a high off white head that stays long. some hoppy notes in the aroma. Some malt notes in flavor, that produces a very long aftertaste with some bitterness. A enjoyable pilsner I could drink all day. Its recomended to drink it icecold, but I prefer it at aprox. 10 degrees.
