Deep brownish-orange with not much head. Smells very sharp, sweet, lemony, and malty. Flavor is quite sweet and extremely malty. Get some hints of lemon juice and a mouthfeel of unfiltered mineral water. Hops dry the finish somewhat. A decent bock, though not as robust and hearty as expected.

Red-cola color; Head was eggshell colored and dense; Clean, malt aroma. Appropriate mouthfeel. A bit metallic (tinny). No alcohol detected. Amazingly mundane.

Norway’s Oldest Brewery - Medium bodied bock beer with a proliferation of sweet malt flavors. Kind of thin bodied and subtle in it’s flavors. Mild hopping. Finishes with a pronounced lager yeast flavor. Not bad - definatley something different.

While I didn’t like their pilsner because of the vanilla flavor in it, the toffee flavor in this bock makes it simply excellent. A truly great bock.

Dark brown, with a somewhat foamy head. A sweet and malty nose almost toffeelike. Smooth and creamy feel with classic bock qualities. A classic in the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ruby brown color with a creamy head, malty aroma, and a smooth drink from start to finish. Not as flavorful as some I’ve had, but still nice. Very hard to come by in Portland though.

Starting to get a little skunky here. Thats the bad thing about getting beer from other countries. This is definitly a smoother bock than usual. If you can get past the skunky part, then this is a decent beer but I’m sure it’s a lot better fresh in Norway.

This and the Julol are the best of Aass. Malty with a touch of sweet. Clean and well made. Not as robust as one might hope for a bock, but by itself a very good drink.
