Contract brewed for Ole Simon AS, a specialist beer store in Vågsgata 43, Sandnes, Rogaland county. (Founded 1948). "Beer, culture, tradition and quality straight from the store".
Brewed of pure water, yeast, hops and malts.

330 ml bottle. Golden body with a white head. Aroma is weak grainy with some hops. I find the flavor lighter than the standard Aass pilsner and that’s bad. Weak malt, minimum bitterness and minimum excitement.

(Bottle). Another contact brew from Aass, a local attempt in Sandnes town to fill their part of the void after Ringnes closed Tou Bryggeri in Stavanger - I asked the storekeeper whether this "extra proud beer" was identical with some other Aass pils, but he claimed it was a brew of its own (he had to, probably). Anyway, not much here to distinguish it from the average continental style pilsener. At least they have used a decent amount of Saazer hops, which makes the aroma quite good. Colour is very light golden, moderate head. Flavour is quite "neutral" but refreshing (not malty). Could still do with a little more bitterness.
