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!
