3.6/5  rDev -0.8%

(11.2 oz brown bottle, new-looking, but no dating/coding indicated; purchased single off shelf at WineWorks... poured into a Victory Brewing, 0.3 l Rastal event tumbler)

L: bright, pale yellow liquid with a very faint haze; foam builds right to the top of the glass, recedes fairly quick, but maintains a misty cap for awhile

S: pre-skunked for the US?! - smelled the stank upon removing crown... as that wafted away, the underlying fresh-bready, pungent herbal notes, and a hint of sulfur remind me of a classic German pils... fine potency and definition overall

T: dull caramel glaze over its grassy-grainy foundation; lingering perfumy, herbal bite, while the skunk and a mineral saltiness creeps up in the aftertaste... the vaguely-peppery, herbal 'spice' stands out most, with the doughy malt providing enough color in the background

F: bit of an inflated roundness to its body up front; quiet flow, delicate carbonation, though the finish does sport a subtle sting owing to some latent fizz and hop sting... relatively dry overall, but short of crisp

O: now I'm curious how old this was, because the bottle looks factory-fresh... thought this would be a little bit better; marginally reminds me of Carlsberg... would prefer to swill this chill from a can if ever we meet again (1708)

The pour is straw colored with a fair amount of carbonation in the pilsner glass. The taste is a mild green apple, some floral, & rolled biscuits. Overall, this was one crisp & easy drinking pilsner beer. Oh well, at least now I can that I was able to try a beer from Norway. Cheers! B-

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Moderate aromas of pilsener malts are present in the nose along with notes of noble hops.
T: The taste follows the smell and starts off with flavors of biscuit and pilsener malts and finishes with notes of floral and spicy hops that also contribute a moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied, clean and rather dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This pilsener has a very nice clean and dry mouthfeel. It is a good Norwegian representation of a German style.

Pours a clear golden in color, topped with an off-white Head.

Pale malts and a neutral character on the nose. Little in the way of overt hop character, but the (thin) aroma is of the classic Noble hop profile.

Slightly crisp, hop bite on the first sip, followed by very a light sweetness, some bitter hop character at the mid-palate, and the finish is on the dry side.

Alcohol is “low” at 4.7% ABV, but it’s actually quite right for the style.


I’ve had much better and much worse examples of the “German Pils” style, and this one is pretty much average all across the board. Thankfully it’s fresh!
