Served ice cold (wtf) at some restaurant at cc vest, oslo. Waiter said it was not the "gourmet series can" but it later showed to be just that. Looked like 50/50 cola/water and tasted about the same, due to the temperature. Ice cubes and a straw were the only things missing. After about 30 minutes the temperature was a bit better and the taste started to show, it was kind of alright, but at that time the beer was all flat and we had finished our meal and had to leave.

MiP (14656) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Can, 4.7%. Very weak caramelly aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Small stable frothy tan head. The flavour is OK refreshing. Has a little butter, but more importantly some refreshing hop, mostly grassy.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 Always a bit funny to see the ratebeer categorizations compared to the marketing of beers: I BET Aass had absolutely NO clue they were brewing a "Scottish Ale", just as Grans probably were equally unaware they made a "Vienna" as their flagship Christmas beer... :-) Pours a (pretty non-pale...) amber body with a thin, off-white head. Smell is raspberries and dark malts. Taste is surprisingly fruity, with notes of raspberry, vanilla, grass and sweet malts. Earthy hints. Rather nice, actually, if it wasn’t for the slight metallic notes appearing throughout the aftertaste. Light-bodied and very drinkable, Gourmet Pale Ale just barely keeps head above "watery". Smooth, relatively complex and well-blended; this is really a positive surprise for an ale of such a low ABV. Props to Aass for this one, they should definitely develop a higher ABV for sale at Vinmonopolet - it could be really good. In my humble opinion, this one is seriously underrated.

bergstaden (1959) - Røros, NORWAY - APR 18, 2010
Amber with a white head - malty aroma with some hints of hops - tasty with malt and more hop in the taste than in the aroma, a little thin in the finish but still an enjoyable beer

Can 50 cl. Pours copper red with a light beige small long lasting dense head. Burnt caramell, grass and metallic notes in aroma. Flavor is lightly sweet with lots of raisin. Body feels thin and there is almost no aftertaste.
