Norwegian wort beer is a non-alcoholic drink made from water, malt and hops and added carbonic acid. In principle, wort beer is beer that has not been through fermentation. In Norway, wort beer is typically dark, roughly looking like Guinness. Wort beer is brewed by Ringnes, Hansa and Aass today.

Wort beer contains some minerals, malt sugar and some b vitamins. Maltese sugar provides fast energy, and the beer is therefore good as a sport drink. The beer is dark, sweet and with a little taste of hops.
