4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
My norwegian favourite. Malty and round, great colour, and a taste which goes well with food. Must be served quite cold, in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apearance: clear and light caramelly brown in color, with a head puffy, well-retained, off-whitish.
Aroma: soft and light, but full of spice and fruit, as well.
Sweet and tasty,well-rounded, for nothing dominates here, not much. Malt may be on top, but does not assert itself too much, and hops are non-existent.
Medium-body, medium-length, nutty finish.
Very good texture, plays in the mouth quite well, and the flavor gives off more caramel essence towards the rear.
A very, very good dark lager. Not the best, but not far away from it, either.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2006 Bottle. Clear reddish-brown color. Small off-white head. Sweet caramel and coffee/mocca aroma. Flavor is toasted malts and caramel. Light hopped and medium bodied. Smooth mouthfeel. Aass have made this Münchener for nearly 150 years now... and the 2006 version is probably the most drinkable Norwegian-brewed "Bayer" at the moment.
