COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mange ølkjennere vil mene at dette er Dronningen blant de lyse ølsorter. Med sin kraftige smak kan AASS GULL med fordel erstatte en hvilken som helst longdrink, men er også ypperlig egnet til mat. Den lille forskjellen i alkoholinnhold gjør en stor forskjell i smaken.

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.

gyllenbock (4549) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2012
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.

Holmen1 (2348) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2012
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?

Cunningham (4429) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 27, 2012
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....

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.
[33 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål Stadion, Oslo]
