Bottle. Dark golden, slightly hazy colour with off white head slowly turning into a nice crown. Aroma of toasted malts, cookies, honey, brown sugar, vanilla. Taste is light sweet and goes to light bitter in the aftertaste. Beer with strong aroma and easy drinking, refreshing taste.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Ålesund, bought in September 2012.
Clear golden with a large white head. Sweet aroma and taste of malt, honey and some light notes of citrus. Also notes of metal. Drinkable but boring. I think that I had drunk a beer like this before.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Som vanlig norsk pils, bare litt mer "bitt" (mer humle, malt og % gir litt mer smak. God balanse. Hvorfor kan de ikke lage butikkøl med denne kvaliteten?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light hazy golden colour with a white head. Light fruity nose. A light dull malty and fruity flavour. I expected a litte bit more out of this 5.5%. It is not bad, but not good either. Actually quite pale....

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2013 Oh no! This one is registered as a Pale Lager, I thought it was supposed to be a Strong Pale Lager! How am I ever going to dethrone Pale Lagers from the top of my most rated beer style list when things like this happen? Anyway, in the glass the Aass Gull doesn’t look that inviting: it’s very pale yellow and slightly hazy, and the white head is short lived and doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma however is much more tempting. Sure, it smells pale lager like, with grainy notes and pale malts, but there there is also a pleasant caramel sweetness and even traces of sweet fruits. The taste is moderate sweet with a light dry light bitter finish. Sweet caramel and fruity flavours. Quite pleasant mouthfeel, the extra alcohol makes body somewhat fuller, and the texture is quite smooth despite the medium carbonation. A pleasant surprise, considerably better than the Ringnes Extra Gold that I had yesterday. The bitterness is quite light, but at least it’s clean and pleasant, as opposed to the metallic, sour, stinging bitterness of the Ringnes.

Bottle in our quirky Oslo hotel. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Sweet marmalade - dried fruits but dominated by pale malt. Carbonated sting in the finish but too much pale malt. Meh!

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.33l bottle. Pours a clear unfiltered golden body with a small sidesticking bubbly white head. Aroma has some malts, sweet corn-like notes, and some watery hops. Not much more than that. Average carbonation, soft oily mouthfeeling and medium to light-bodied. Mild malty flavors with a distinct corn-like flavor. Ends mildly bitter, kinda watery and heavily boring.
