COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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

Weak hop aroma, pale golden color, crazy foamy head,not much flavor. Somewhat dry finish.

KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - JUL 22, 2002
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.

Very bland. A bit carbonated, mild hoppiness, light flavor.

Dogbrick (7570) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2002
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.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2002
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.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2002
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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 3, 2002
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.

Not too bad, i heard it was really good, so in that respect it was dissapointing. Very drinkable however.
