Bottled. Poured a very light straw colour, with almost no head at all. The same goes for the aroma, hardly any noticeable, some weak malt or corn.
Taste was watery and thin, very light hopped, could pass under the radar as carbonated water. Odland (139) - NORWAY - MAR 26, 2011
A long overdue review, but I remember this moment vividly. Bottle @ Dads house. Tried this on launch day with a helicopter with a banner that read "Ta Ein Te Stavanger" buzzing over head. The sun was shining and Stavanger had finally gotten their own lager back (after Tou was moved to Oslo). Poured golden with a crisp taste. Not much in the hops department but really drinkable. Served in transparent long neck bottles. The start of a good summer. RuneStumo (2739) - Haugesund, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2008
17.10.2003, 0,33l bottle. The colour is pale golden yellow. Head is white and firm. Aroma and body ispoor with no bitternes or good taste at all. Beer5000 (6878) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2007
330 ml bottle. Golden body with a white head. Some light maltyness in aroma. Flavor has some sweet malt and noticeable hops, but not very successfully. Thin and watery palate.

Bottled. Pale golden. Aroma of paper and berries. Sweet and bready with some surprising hops. Poor. Sigmund (8103) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2003
The least miserable of Norwegian "sommerøl" (="summer beers), but that doesn't take much. Ringnes recently closed Tou Bryggeri, Stavanger, but will continue brewing Tou beers in Oslo. As a reaction to this, local patriots in Stavanger started a quite effective boycott of Ringnes, and founded a new brewery (so far only on paper), Lervig Aktiebryggeri. Untill Lervig have built production facilities of their own (I will enter Lervig to the DB as a separate brewery when that happens), Lervig beers will be contract brewed by Mack. Their first Mack-brewed beer is this one, a light golden summer seasonal with some boiled maltiness, but otherwise little character. BTW, "Ein te?" is Stavanger dialect for "Another one?"
