One of two cans kindly brought over from Norway by a Polish friend after he failed to find better bottled nectars from Nøgne Ø~~ According to the info. printed on the can, this one is brewed by "E.C.Dahls" Brewery in Trondheim. But since Dahls shares the same website as the Ringnes, I presume it's become part of the group now. BB 2 MAR 2007, served chilled in a jug.

A: straw hue, coming with a thick and loosely-formed white beer head that settles slowly to a thin cap; the carbonation is pretty moderate for a canned beer. Not bad.
S: dried grassy, resiny, and slightly apple-ish fruity hop hints upfront, like Saaz hops indeed, plus a thin body of pils malts at the back--very simple but at least this one gets some aroma while the other beer tasted yesterday by the same brewery: Double Ice, doesn't.
T: a slightly sweet grainy flavour of very light malt entry, plus corn-like adjunct's cheap flavour, and some plastic+metallic residual hints of second-class ingredients like hop extracts... No real hoppyness as of Saaz is noticeable here; only a slightly bitter edge of hops and bitter-sweet edge of lightly toasted malts hanging by a thread in the finish serves to remind anyone of anything remotely akin to a Czech Pils.
M&D: rather thin bodied, watery in the end, not much flavour to entertain the palate, but fortunately the mouthfeel is pleasantly and softly fizzy overall; the whole palate is salvaged only by the finishing bitter touch. But again, this one by the Ringnes Group is anything but a success. A failure to mimick Czech Pilsner style beer, I must say.
