1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4.5% bottle swigged with Dirtman in Vigeland Sculpture Park. BREAKIN’ THE LAW, BREAKIN’ THE LAW. Appearance? Some ruddy-cheeked peasants frolicking in the straw on the label. Crisp and clean with a lingering, slightly nutty bitterness, vanilla, Weetabix and corn. Decent grassy, lemony hop- something of a surprise. Fresh and pleasant park bench refreshment, 13 NOK a bottle. You won’t find a cheaper rate in Oslo, unless you steal it.
