1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, trade with Cunningham. Huge thaaanx for this colored water :-)
The beer is golden yellow in the glass with a very short-lived, soapy head. A nearly neutral smell, very subtle malty musty and slightly sourish. Starts better than expected. Malty, grainy, very mild and subtly hoppy-musty in the background. The middle part is very watery, coupled with lax grain notes and an insignificant hop aroma. Goes into a very short-lasting hoppy-musty finish.

Flaske hjemme: cheap = kjip. Det er slike produkter som har gitt norske bryggerier et velfortjent dårlig omdømme i utlandet. Stakkars bryggerne hos Aass, som kan så uendelig mye bedre enn dette.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Out of all the poor pilseners on the Norwegian market, this one might just be the worst.
This beer looks like any other Norwegian pilsener; if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all.
It smells like water that’s been used to (over-)cook vegetables, and wet paper.
The beer tastes like brass, and is much too sweet.
This is one of those beers I just never managed to finish, even though it’s in a tiny 330ml bottle.
This is the cheapest alcohol you can get in Norway, so it’s the preferred brew of drunkards and 14-year olds.

Viss brödighet i doften tillsammans med en liten gnutta humle.
Smaken är brödig och lätt. En ganska ordinär pilsner

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0.33l bottle. Pours a golden body with a small white lager head. Aroma is light grainy with some thin malt and dusty hops. Body is light to medium, texture oily and carbonation is average. Tastes not 1/4 as bad as I thought it would. Has a nice bitterness, light and crisp. Boring of course, but I thought I had some horrible memories of this from when I was younger. Pleasantly surprised. I have no problem drinking this again.
