The malted barley is a pilsner malt produced in the Scandinavian countries. We use the very best of hops known under the names of Saazer and Hallertau, and the liquid is pure Norwegian mountain water.

Version brewed for the export market contains 5.5% ABV.

The best part about this beer it the endless stream of sophomoric humor its name makes possible. "I'm pouring my Aass in a glaas,""Can I press your Aass up to my lips," etc, etc, and so on...

Slightly cloudy golden color. Thick head. Great lace. Sweet malty aroma with hints of yeast. Smooth mouthfeel but a bit on the thin side. Low carbonation. Sweet and malty. Not exactly what I expect in a pils. Hop presence is very low. Still, I found this to be a rather tasty standard lager.

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2003 Murky in both look and taste; no distinct flavors jumped out at me, leaving a dry fuzzy feeling in my mouth.

(from a green bottle) small white head. Pilsner yellow. Malty aroma. Malt flavor quite distinct with hops almost unnoticeable. Not what I expected in a Pilsner, but not bad.

Pilsner in a green bottle, so I was prepared for it to be skunky. Thankfully, it wasn't. Smelled like fresh mowed hay, looked like, well, pee after you take a B vitamin complex. It had a crisp character, subtle hop flavor, and a clean finish. No aftertaste. Not bad, the flavors that were there were good, I'd just like to have more of 'em.

An ok pilsner with a very light head and heavy carbonation. A malty aroma emanates from the glass with a hoppy flavor. Easy to drink, but nothing special. Gotta love the name though.

Light saaz and sweet malts in the nose. I blame the green bottle for the skunkiness. Soft mouthfeel with a mild sweet charactor, not too much fizziness. Wheaty finish.

Today are my 25th b-day and it was time to take over and hunt down beer form Norway. Aass was its name. This beer helped me to be positioned in top 5 in most countries. Nice gift, it is. Well this beer had weak fizzy head, light golden look, aroma light as well but not skunky despite green bottle. Malty but very low on hops. Average.

Straw yellow with a white head. Hoppy at first with honey like undertones followed by a malty sweetness. Not bad.

This is one great pilsner beer. Clear golden color. Nice malty presence along with those Saaz and Hallertau hops in the nose make this one outstanding beer. There’s enough bodied for this beer to be enjoyable but it’s light enough to be extremely drinkable especially on these hot summer days.
