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.

Decent pilsener. Not that great not that bad. A little metallic in the body of the taste. Good aftertaste with not too much bitters. A good all around pilsener. Not too unique.

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.
