Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Can 50 cl. Courtesy of yngwie. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Medium body, sweet roasted malts and a litle burned caramel. Hardly any bitterness. 091109

Sigmund (5024) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2009
Sample from 500 ml can, Aass Brewery stand at Smak 09. ABV is 4.7%. Deep golden colour, moderate head. Moderate notes of caramel in the aroma. The flavour has moderate caramel malts and a moderate bitterness in the finish. Drinkable, but not very exciting. You’d think they would come up with something better for a jubilee.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2009
Big offwhite shiny head. Reddish amber body with carbonation. Papery rubbery aroma with fruit and pepper notes. Strange. Sweetish-dryish papery caramel taste with watery dusty fruity strawberry notes. Slick, watery mouthfeel. Thinnish body. Boring, not very good. Feels like they forgot to add hops. (0.5l can, Centra, Oslo.)

yngwie (13351) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 7, 2009
Can. It pours a clear, dark golden body with two fingers of off-white, lasting head. Caramel-sweetish nose with some hops in the background, giving a fruity touch. Sweet, caramel flavor with some hoppy bitterness, but not much. A little too gazzy I think, but with good fullness. Medium lenght finish with the same flavors found initially. It’s a quite decent beer, and for the regular Aass drinkers I bet it’s borderline too much. If it was me, I wouldn’t be proud to make a mediocre beer for my 175th anniversary, even though it’s flawless. Yes, it’s sort of tasteful, but only in comparison to a pale lager. Actually it’s rather one dimensional. Wouldn’t have much trouble downing a few though. (090407)

gunnfryd (10453) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2009
Can . Dark golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, caramel. Flavour is fruit, malt, caramel, hop. Medium body. OK beer, but also a little bit boring.

fobar (241) - Søgne, NORWAY - OCT 18, 2009
500ml can. Copper colored body with egg-white head. Caramel aroma and taste. Not bad at all!

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Can. A dark amber beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, and some over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, metal, and a bit of nuts, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

OleR (4801) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2009
Canned@Smak 09. A fingerthick offwhite head upon a clear copper colored body. Sweetish grains, dusty hops and a faint caramel scent to the nose. Taste is grainy, lightly toasted malts, some caramel notes, and a straw-like bitterness that stays alive all the way to the finish. Nothing technically wrong with this one, but very straightforward and boring.

Gr0ve (2132) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2009
500 ml can. Copper colour. Crystal clear. Tall white fluffy head that clings to the glass. Dry grain malt aroma and a floral hop aroma. Light-bodied, but there is a nice toffee-like malt flavour. Weak hop bitterness with hints of metal. Watery texture. It is light and nicely drinkable, but it is far from complex.

tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - APR 11, 2009
50 cl can at home - thanks to yngwie. Clear amber color, fine beige head. Aroma is sweet and caramel malty. The flavor is the same, with only hints of hops. Not bad, but boring.
