Aass pulls off a rather dry, crisp Saazy pils that nevertheless is somewhat unsatisfying. Czechvar does the pils better, I think. Good color and head, rather fizzy. Not really very sweet as some say.

what a let down this beer is not what it used to be in the early 90’s it seems watered down and lackink the complexity it once had though the brewery would claim nothing has changed

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very mild hoppy aroma--almost imperceptible, really...Color a white-gold color with frothy head--helped along a bit by healthy carbonation. Hops are nice--prominent but restrained. Malty sweetness tasted but body is a bit thin. With the light body, carbonation a little heavy for balance...still, a refreshing offering.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale yellow colored and somewhat effervescent. Barely perceptible skunky aroma. Crisp flavor but not much character. Dry, slightly acrid finish. I am guessing the Bock is much better than this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first six I tried tasted very much like vanilla. I bought a bottle today and it tasted much more mellow, with a mild vanilla flavor hidden in the finish, but a sharp hops flavor hides it pretty well. Very tasty, but is a very unattractive beer to look at out of the bottle.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Skunky aroma (or at least what beer drinkers refer to as skunky as an actual skunk smells way worse than this, enough so that I wouldn’t put it to my mouth) with a slight hint of hops. Golden colored. Medium head, malty flavor. Nice light finish. A decent Pilsner but pales in comparison to Aass Bock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear light golden color with a nice white head. The aroma of noble hops is a faint and somewhat muted. Moderate carbonation. Malt flavors seemed a bit stale and worty. Decent lace. Just not very crisp.
