Fydenlund Pilsner…..on tap at the bar at Radisson Scandinavia Hotel in Oslo, Norway

Noticed this one along with Ringnes and thought it might’ve been a competitor. Apparently it’s the same exact brewer. Oh well.

Appearance-pale golden color, thick white head about one finger high. Decent carbonation and in the glass it was served in, not bad looking.

Smell-airy with a mix of light grain and alcohol, more of a straw mix, again fairly clean but inoffensive.

Taste/Mouthfeel-light mouthfeel, grain appears and leaves quickly, clean all around, alcohol and adjuncts as well, flavors of corn drift in an out, final straw taste on the tongue for the finish.

Overall-inoffensive but just another Euro Pale that is indistinguishable from many others. A shame.

A: clear golden, not too much head

S: like rotten (okay, maybe overripe AT BEST) apricots

T: no taste upfront, like drinking water, followed by a light malt finish

M: an explosion of carbonation, it's actually refreshingly fizzy

T: would not do this again, would rather have a green can of Carlsberg

Notes from 02.13.10 at Revolver in Oslo
