KnutAlbert (6713) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2007
T0,33 l bottle he best so far of the Aass Gourmet range. Some carmaels sweetness, a little spicy, rather soft beer. Fine head, some wheat malt probably adds to that. Too thin and watery, I’d like to see a preium strength version of this.

Bottled. A red-brown beer with a medium tan head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of dusty hops and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of metal and caramel as well as lighter notes of nuts, leading to a dry bitter and metallic finish.
