Can 50 cl. Courtesy of yngwie. Pours a clear amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma. Medium body, sweet roasted malts and a litle burned caramel. Hardly any bitterness. 091109 Sigmund (8030) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2009
Sample from 500 ml can, Aass Brewery stand at Smak 09. ABV is 4.7%. Deep golden colour, moderate head. Moderate notes of caramel in the aroma. The flavour has moderate caramel malts and a moderate bitterness in the finish. Drinkable, but not very exciting. You’d think they would come up with something better for a jubilee. larsga (7680) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2009
Big offwhite shiny head. Reddish amber body with carbonation. Papery rubbery aroma with fruit and pepper notes. Strange. Sweetish-dryish papery caramel taste with watery dusty fruity strawberry notes. Slick, watery mouthfeel. Thinnish body. Boring, not very good. Feels like they forgot to add hops.

Can. It pours a clear, dark golden body with two fingers of off-white, lasting head. Caramel-sweetish nose with some hops in the background, giving a fruity touch. Sweet, caramel flavor with some hoppy bitterness, but not much. A little too gazzy I think, but with good fullness. Medium lenght finish with the same flavors found initially. It’s a quite decent beer, and for the regular Aass drinkers I bet it’s borderline too much. If it was me, I wouldn’t be proud to make a mediocre beer for my 175th anniversary, even though it’s flawless. Yes, it’s sort of tasteful, but only in comparison to a pale lager. Actually it’s rather one dimensional. Wouldn’t have much trouble downing a few though. (090407) gunnfryd (15503) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2009
Can . Dark golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, caramel. Flavour is fruit, malt, caramel, hop. Medium body. OK beer, but also a little bit boring.

500ml can. Copper colored body with egg-white head. Caramel aroma and taste. Not bad at all! Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2009
Can. A dark amber beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, and some over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, metal, and a bit of nuts, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing. Gr0ve (2176) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2009
500 ml can. Copper colour. Crystal clear. Tall white fluffy head that clings to the glass. Dry grain malt aroma and a floral hop aroma. Light-bodied, but there is a nice toffee-like malt flavour. Weak hop bitterness with hints of metal. Watery texture. It is light and nicely drinkable, but it is far from complex.
