Ringnes Bayersk (Bavarian) Lager is inspired by the bottom fermented beer that was brewed in Bayern (Bavaria) in the 19th century. Ringnes Bayersk Lager is a rich and flavourful beer with elements of roasted malts. The beer has a rich sweetness, a low fruitiness and a nice bitterness, and is a great accompaniment with classic Norwegian foods, and also fried and grilled meat.

djoeye (5080) - Tromsø, - DEC 15, 2013
50 cl can, past bbf-date, [email protected], completed my Bayer Leverpostei Evening. One finger off-white foam, golden light brown body, clear. Scents; roasted alcoholic malts, hops, cognac-candies. Taste; nutty malts, toasted malts, weak hints of harsh butter, carpet of hops. Palate; alright still, some hints of pearled alcohol. Aftertaste; roasted malts, dark bread, some hops. Overall tasty enough, but also watery hints, and maybe I understand why Ringnes discontinued it and laid the efforts on Frydenlund Bayer.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2012 Can from local grocery store. Liight brown colour with a white head. Wweek caramel nose. Medium malty caramel flavour with a light bitterness.

Der laff malzige Antrunk ist überaus wässrig, leider spiegelt dies die gesamte Intensität des Bieres wieder. Geschmackslos, zum Ende kurz herb, trocken malzig. Eine Zumutung. 6/3/5/2/5/2

Light amber with a lasting white head. Weak malty aroma with a hint of fruit. Sweet malty and fruity flavour

Pours a clear and amber beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and sweetness. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is bitterness. Overall a boring beer.

sfhodense (4788) - Odense NØ, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2011
Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is sweet malt, DMS and light grass. Flavour is sweet malt, fruity notes, DMS and light grass.

Bottle @ Norweigan Tasting, Odense. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Heavy corn, grain and dust. Flavor is corn. Thin, sweet and bland.

ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 10, 2010
Pours a flat-looking, light brown body with a thin, highly temporary head. Not too appetizing. Smell is faint caramel malt, and the taste is equally vague: caramel-ish maltiness with an overtly fizzy palate and some nondescript hop bitterness in the finish. Watery mouthfeel. Unlike its other Norwegian "bayer" counterparts, Ringnes Bayersk Lager is marketed as a lager. And indeed it is very lager-like, yet with strong hints to both the Helles/Dortmunder-tradition as well as to the German "Dunkel"-style. Thus, the categorization here is a bit dubious. Ufortunately, Ringnes Bayersk Lager is a pretty bad example of both styles.

fobar (241) - Søgne, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2010
500ml can. Copper color body with 2cm white head that looks a bit thicker than a regular pilsner. Sweet malty taste with only some bitterness. Sweet aroma as well. Short aftertaste.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Can:   Pale copper, clear, thin to moderate white head, sudsy, falls quickly, sparce lacing, little carbonation.   Soft toasted malt nose, a little grainy, some hay, but not barnish.   On the grassy side without feeling too musty or aged.   Soft maltiness, grassy, a little hay and straw, with a hint of earthiness.   Some sweetness accompanies this one.   Not bad, has character to it.   Toasted malt finish, lingering grasiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but well rounded.   I totally thought this was going to be a dark lager, but I was wrong.   Lingering grassy sweetness.   Decent.
