2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can 0,5 l, not poured into glass. Very nice foral hop aroma, unusually present hop aroma for a Norwegian macro brew! But I’ve noticed that also in other Aass beers. A bit unbalanced towards bitterness, but not unpleasant. Very weak aroma of hay and a hint of sourness in a barn-/haylike way - which is not bad! Watery mouthfeel, very easy to drink. Like the newborn baby of the mother of all IPAs! If this one grew up, so to speak, it could be a good IPA, perhaps, but unfortunately it’s just an infant and will never grow up. In my opinion far from a great beer, but for a Norwegian macro brew it’s one of the best, all things considered.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a pale golden body with a foamy white top that sticks around a little while. Smell is pretty horrible; canned dogfood and dusty hops. What have they done with this one? Taste is almost equally bad; wet cardboard at first, then corn starch, cooked veggies and dusty hops coming in after a while. Canned aftertaste. Very, very bad beer indeed.
