Can. Overall, this pale ale has some decent qualities, but largely in the appearance. But, it most certainly exceeded my expectations. It starts out with an amber-colored body and a rather large slightly off-white head. The head itself is rather well retained, with lacing that clings tightly to the side of the glass. All-in-all, the body looks to be pretty robust. The nose is fairly aromatic: largely sweet, with hints of grass and metal. The mouth feel is rather watery. The taste is decent: a bit malty (too much for a pale ale perhaps), caramel and slightly metallic. All-in-all, it’s a decent beer with pretty good taste, but certainly not full of flavors that one might a expect from a pale ale.

tfredvik (1555) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2011
A clear light brown body with a small, fairly long-lived, off-white, creamy, dense head that leaves plenty of lacing. Malty and light hoppy aroma, with caramel, berries and fruits. Is it citrus and raspberries that are buried deep in there somewhere? The taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter, and also some metallic sourness. Rather boring flavour profile: some caramel and very faint fruits. To my surprise the carbonation is very soft. The ale has a light body and close to watery texture. The overall feel is ok, but a bit artificial, synthetic and metallic.

Clear copper of color with a nice beige head. An aroma of malt, bread, caramel and butter. A flavor of hops, butter, caramel and bread.

Palme (3604) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 7, 2011
0.5l can. Pours a orange amber body with a thin lacing head. Aroma is slightly sweet malts with notes of flowers. Lively carbonated and light bodied. Taste is slightly grassy hops, malt and mild with a slightly acidic and fruity finish. Think the main words to say on this is slightly and mildly. Not that bad actually, but in my opinion no "gourmet"-beer.

abstractbeer (239) - NORWAY - FEB 5, 2011
Pours an amber brew. Sweet nose. Taste is on the sweet side, too. Nice peachy, raisin aroma, with some caramely malt and a bit of licorice in the aftertaste. Strangely it reminds me of a christmas beer, but less sweet and roasted. Tasty for a norwegian grocery store macrobrew! Aass is by far my favorite norwegian macrobrewery, mainly because they have the guts to make beers with taste - they even dare to put enough hops in their beer so the hop aroma (or "weird taste" as the Average Joe here would describe it) comes through!

gunnar (7121) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2011
Can at home. Pours clear copper with a huge creamy off-white head. Spicy dark caramel aroma, some rye bread as well.Taste is more on the nutty malty side, medium sweet caramel.Not too sweet, rather neutral and well balanced brew. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Good beer.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - JAN 1, 2011
A nice not-so-pale amber colour, with a agressive , off-white head. Aroma; Some malt caracter with some toast, good fruityness and alittle caramel in the back aswell. Flavours; Very fruity, red berries, the toast aroma in the mouth. It´s alittle sweet, but refreshing and good, finishing with some yeastnotes (grass/herbs?). Not a very big body. Summary; The aroma/flavour profile is really good, but I wish it had a bigger body to support it!
