The Norwegian beer market is dominated by two large brewers- Carlsberg-Ringnes and Hansa-Borg. Most of the output is lager-style beers such as Pilsner and Fatøl which are widely (and to some extent exclusively) available and heavily consumed. Bayerøl, a kind of dark lager, slightly sweeter than German dark lagers, is also readily available. Frydenlund Bayerøl, brewed by Ringnes, is the most ubiquitous example of this style.

Give it a try. Not bad.
