21st March 2012
Can or bottle in Tromso. Clear deep amber beer, tiny off white head. Light crisp palate, dry. Ok fresh minerally malt - a little sweet. Very mild barely there dried fruit hops before the dry finish. Just the wrong side of one dimensional.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, sparkling, medium brown body with a large, off-white head that reduces to a thin layer rather quickly, fair lacing. The aroma suffered due to completely wrong serving temperature: more or less straight out of the refrigerator. Therefore the aroma was very weak and boring, I could pick up some faint caramel, but the Aass trademark, the metallic notes, were just as present. As the beer warmed up the aromas and flavours came more into play, and a nice style typical caramel touch was obvious. The metallic notes were not present in the flavours. Medium to light sweet taste with a light plus bitterness. Soft carbonation and rather light body. All in all very similar to the Hansa bayer, but with more bitterness and, at least if served too cold, a fainter aroma. Still, decent stuff.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Overall, a rather decent beer. It starts out with an copper-colored body and a large slightly off-white head. The head itself is rather well retained, with lacing that clings tightly to the side of the glass. All-in-all, the body looks to be pretty robust. The nose is fairly aromatic: largely sweet, with hints of caramel and metal. The mouth feel is pretty watery. The taste is decent: malty, caramel, but somewhat metallic. All-in-all, it’s a decent beer with pretty good taste, but certainly not full of flavors that one might a expect from a good dunkel.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Laff malziger Antrunk, trocken. Das Röstmalz wirkt im Mittelteil bitterer und wird noch trockener, dazu dezent säuerlich. Zum Abgang wird es zitrusartig, die Intensität ist nun immerhin annehmbar. Anspruchsloses Halbdunkel. 8/7/7/5/6/6
