Ringnes Brewery was founded in 1876 by Amund and Ellef Ringnes, together with investor Axel Heiberg. The famous Ringnes Pilsner was introduced to the market in 1886. From 1913 to 1972, Ringnes brewed a low alcohol beer called Ringnes Landsøl, later replaced by Ringnes Lettøl (Light Beer). In 2015, this beer was relaunched, in a can.
With a golden colour and a full head, this beer has a light aroma of hops and light malt. The taste is suprisingly full with a clean taste, a dry mouthfeel and a rich bitterness.
Ringnes Light Beer is a nice match with light dishes such as salads, chicken, white fish and shellfish.
