Color is clear golden yellow with a creamy-like head that was just over a finger high leaving nice sheets of light lacing as it settled. Smell is faintly of a grainy malt thats a tad sweet and has a floral grassy/hay like hop note in the back. Taste is clean and sweet of a lightly roasted malt, held back, tamed crispness thats balanced in well with a hop thats a floral, bittering, piney dryness. Feels smooth and clean, slightly acidic, light to medium bodied with a good hold of light sweetness and piney tang dryness thats very easy to handle. Everything about this beer states balance, balance between sweet, crisp, dry, with smooth, tart, clean, just about all this beer emcompasses in its flavor and feel just makes it a very easy, smooth, and good drinker.

When I sampled this for the first time, 2 years ago, I declared that I could drink it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Now. I was probably trying to get on the good side of the pretty girl who poured it for me, but I was impressed, though I'm an ale man, and I really coouldn't down too many lagers in a row, unless forced to do so... Thin, white bubbly head forms a small ivory ring over a typical lager hue, pale yellow. Aroma greets the nose happily, with dry, floral, citrusy notes, lots of lemon. Highly aromatic from the moment the can is opened. Mouthfeel is straightforward, unintrusive, clean, pleasant. A sweet and happy finish that walks along your tongue, taking it's time. Light body, very tasty. Just what you need in a lager.Excellent on draft, too

Very watery and not much nose in my oppinion. Bland. Thirst quenching is all I can say. It’s like soda water.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - FEB 28, 2003
I tasted a full-alcoholic version, so, I cannot call it "watery". It's rather very ordinary lager but quite drinkable with some hops in the finish.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe corn. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor. Still better than Bud/Coors/Miller light products.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2005
(Can 50 cl) Golden with a nice head - yet surprisingly hazy. Fresh, slightly bitter with an odd tartness coming close to Swedish "Färsk-öl". Canned for the American market. 221203

Cunningham (4440) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2012 Bottle. Golden colour with a white head. A very standard lager beer. How many of this boring lagers with different labels do Aass bother to make?

A not too bad rendition of pale european lager. Not much can be said. Slightly malty. Serving: Can

EricTheRed (82) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Not the worst thing I drank today. Watery, bubbly and a taste of minerals or aspirin or something. Not unrefreshing, but not inspiring either.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 17, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2003 Light yellow/straw color. Tiny white head fizzes away. Almost no aroma. After thourougly enjoying the Aass Classic, I was disappointed by this watered down version. Had some straw flavor with some malt, but was too thin. Not much to write this beer just didnt have enough there (wasnt overly carbonated though!). Get Aass Classic if you want a real treat from this brewery.
