garza (567) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - SEP 3, 2010
Clear yellow colour with a frothy white head. Malty aroma with some grass. Notes of citrus and medium sourness in the taste, lightly bitter. Average carbonation, medium body. Sometimes depending of the bar is very good, sometimes is just crap. Anyways, better than average lagers in Norway.

tkrjukoff (4021) - SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2010
Pours clear pale golden with huge fluffy white head leaving some lacing on the glass. Sightly malty and hoppy aroma with notes of dry hay. Sweetish and hoppy flavor. Sweet perry like and crisp on palate. Finishes with very nice long lived hoppy aftertaste.

ClubGonzo (3924) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 Pours a pale golden body with a fizzy, foamy and quickly disappearing white head. Overcooked veggies, canny metallic adjuncts and generally not very good stuff hits my nose..this could get nasty.. Taste is similar; canned dogfood, cereals, veggies...jeez...this is much worse than anticipated. Watery palate. Aass may have some good beer, but their staple - the pilsner - is a very, very far cry from anything remotely tasty. Drain pour. How this beer got its fairly decent rating (at least for a commercial lager beer) I really do not know.
