There is no trick to this - it needs deductive reasoning and definitely a pen and paper.

Nationality Beverage Cigar Pet House Color

------------------------------------------------------

Norwegian Water Dunhill Cat Yellow

Dane Tea Blend Horses Blue

Brit Milk Pall Mall Bird Red

German Coffee Prince Fish Green

Swede Beer Blue Master Dog White

Therefore the answer is the German.

There is one more possible answer, if we remove "immediate" from the Hint 4 i.e. read it as "The green house is on the left of the white house, not necessarily on the immediate left"

Nationality Beverage Cigar Pet House Color

------------------------------------------------------

Norwegian Coffee Blend Fish Green

German Water Prince Cats Blue

Swede Milk Dunhill Dogs Yellow

Brit Beer Blue Master Horses Red

Dane Tea Pall Mall Birds White

Thus, either German or Norwegian keeps the Fish, if the green house is not necessarily on the immediate left of the white house.
