1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml can. Clear, pale golden body with a white head. Aroma has some malt. Flavor is sweet malty with some bitter hops. Short aftertaste. Aass brewery has a rather big crowd of followers, much because theirs independently I think. At least this beer could not be the reason. Tastes exactly like one hundred million billion trillion other industrial pilsners, sorry!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tried it on can and on cask in Hemsedal, Norway.
Golden color and a white head. Very fresh hoppy scent, much to my surprise. The taste came as the scent did, very hoppy compared to my expectations. Even though the name indeed sounds funny in the English language, it’s a nice well made beer. Easy to drink and enjoyable. After getting a bit drunk on the Viking party it was of course amazingly funny to shout "Nice Aass" and drink all night long...

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. First of all; I have never understood the Norwegian habit of calling a canned or bottled beer Fatøl, ’Draught beer’ in english. That said, it is a clear, golden beer with a decent white head, no carbonation and nice lacings. Grainy aroma with some hay and hops. Flavor is lightly malty, grainy and with a hoppiness that feels artificial. Dry, fruity-bitter finish.Thin body. (060304)
