Aass Bayer represents the genre of "bayer", which is the traditional Norwegian term for the darker-shaded lager beers originally from Bavaria, Germany. It is a typical of the sort: dark malts, caramel look as well as flavor. It is a smooth and drinkable beer but that’s about it. Not much character, so the rating will be accordingly mediocre.

Can. Pours dark orange, 2cm offwhite head. Fairly sweet aroma, some toasted notes, caramel, but mostly metallic notes. Flavour is the same, with a too harsh metallic hop finish. A bit watery, light body, fizzy carb.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2009 18.01.2009, 0,5l Can. Dark amber brown colour. Offwhite head. Aroma is very nice malty. Bitter and sweet?!. Aftertaste is short and bitter. Very nice bayer. ྫྷ.03.2004: Kanskje det beste norske Bayerøl. Det som skiller dette fra de andre er det tydelige maltpreget. Tiltalende og nydelig godt)
