Ahlsen started his career at the senior level with Fredrikstad FK in the middle of the 1970s. He won the cup trophy with Fredrikstad in 1984, thanks to his fantastic free kick goal from 35 meters – a goal that is often considered the most beautiful goal in Norwegian football. In 1987, he transferred to S.K. Brann where he played for six seasons, a part from a short loan period to German Fortuna Düsseldorf. Ahlsen became an iconic figure in S.K. Brann. He was looked upon as a saviour because he put a stop to the "elevator era" in S.K. Brann. He finished his career back in Fredrikstad, where he is now the assistant coach.
