Not much to say about the appeareance on this one, straw yellow, a small white head.
Can't say it smells inviting, some off scents there.
Moderate carbonated, does not really taste anything, a bit grassy,and a bit like dirty water. Really hard to review this one, since it does not give much to review.

A - One finger of white head with decent retention but great lace. The body is pale yellow and very bright.

S - Malty and grainy with a bit of a strange sulphur aroma, maybe some diacetyl.

T - Sweet and malty with some husky grain components and a minor adjunct twang. Weak herbal hop flavor and low bitterness.

M - Medium body, medium carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - Despite being labeled as one, we are clearly not dealing with a real pilsner here. Even if this were regarded as a light euro lager it would still be kind of a crappy one. What we have here is, in fact, a weak malt liquor; and it even manages to fail at that since it is too weak to be an efficient alcohol delivery system. Not worth buying; even in a Norwegian grocery store it is easy to find better beer than this.

Clear golden color with a thin white head sitting on top. There is also a little lacing. The aroma has some big fruity notes. Sour apples and pears, also a subtle hop aroma. Very subtle, but nice. Taste is pretty good. Notes of fruit, apples and pears mostly. There is also a lightly toasted malt flavor. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with great carbonation. Drinkability is fairly high. Great flavor and low alcohol make the beer very easy to consume. Probably the best pils style beer I've had in Norway to date.
