COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sweet, caramel aroma. Clean, crisp taste, and an almost dry aftertaste. Interesting and complex. Very flavorful with strong malt presence.

Palme (3533) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2010
0.33l bottle from Meny. Pours a nice dark brown-red body with a quite thin quickly disappearing head. Nose is fresh fruits and burned malts - otherwise quite anonymous. Tastes quite blend. Some malt, thin caramel and week leather hints. Finishes off with a small bitter ending. All in all; Quite boring. (could have sworn the alcohol percentage was 4,7 - not 4,5 but that’s another story)

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Clear, brown-red with a nice and fruity alcoholic nose. Sweet, but kind of light malts. Complex fruity aromas as well. Frothy texture with a tingly, spikey carbonation. Warming in the throat, fulfilling, slightly bitter. Very dry, puckering finish.

BillKismet (3357) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 4, 2002
Amber with a thick creamy head and a delicate, but nice malt smell. The flavor was of malt and carmel. A well-balanced, highly drinkable, good tasting vienna.

Bamsen78 (3315) - Sĝnderborg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle @ Scooper Tasting in Ulfborg. Pours clear darkish amber with airy off-white head. Dusty aroma with notes of hops and malt. Rough, estery, and sweetish, malty flavour. Sourish overtones. Hoppy notes. Rather unbalanced and not very interesting.

Arve_Christian (3229) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2012
On 33 cl bottle from local supermarket. Dark amber color, good foam. Light roasted aromas and malt, dried fruit. Medium/ light body & complexity. Ok balance Pretty ok beer

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2004
Ruby red pour with big pink head. Malty and sweet dried fruit tastes throughout. Could use a bit more hops though.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2003
Malt, caramel aroma, copper colour, with a small toffee head. Caramel, toffee and treacle flavours. Nicely bitter. Sweet, warming, light bodied, easy drinking. A really tasty beer.

visionthing (2894) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2011
Can. Amber with a small head that disappears. Sweet fruit, metal and rather thin. A bit strange, but drinkable.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2002
Not much head. Nice sweet aroma. The label says this is a holiday beer. Perhaps the alcohol is a touch noticeable - which is odd for a 4.5% abv beer. Sort of like a dunkel. Nice, but a fairly average vienna. Not Aass’s best.
