Good, malty aroma - at first skunky - but it mellows and sort of grows on you. Kind of a thin pour with a light head. Detect a bit of chocolate undertones -reminds me of a schwarzbier as it has the taste of a stout but not the same heavy feel to them. All in a all a good solid beer.

cloudy throughout. Tons of barley in the nose, I like that familiar Aass aroma. Nice and malty, with a dry-ish finish. Sweet stuff. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Crystal clear copper lager. Small, white, fizzy head that is almost fully lasting and leaves honeycomb lacework.
The nose is beefy with notes of nickel or copper.
Malty, lightly smokey and well-balanced. Hearty for a low gravity beer.
Medium-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, dry, grassy finish. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2003
33 cL bottle, goblet. Very large, frothy, creamy, off-white head is well lasting and sits on a deep brown body with crimson edges that's opaque in the middle. A great looker. Nutty, cookie, baker's cocoa malt (heavy); herbish hops (light); plum, raisin, merlot, oak, toffee, vanilla, brown sugar. Somehow it's not quite as good as I just made it sound. Taste comes across as a watered down tawny port. Heavily sweet throughout with a light acidity in the finish. Medium-heavy body, oily texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: there's a strange sweetness to this one...hey is that gnome looking at me funny? JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Aroma is malty and sweet, with cherries, caramel, oak, dry with a slightly carbonated hint. Ruby red color with a nice off white head that slowly settles, leaving behind some very nice lacing. Flavor has caramel and malts, slightly sweet, and little less exciting than I was lead to expect from the aroma. Still a nice brew.

One blizzardy St. Pats in Boston, my friends and I got downtown too late to get into our favorite Guinnessing pubs and retreated to Julie’s place. She had bought this beer for the name and we dutifully, if a little sadly, quafed it, noting the spiciness. Not enough to replce a St. pats Stout, but rich enough to be there to soothe the disappointment. WhiteAlePower (92) - Long Island, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2006
To me, this is what a Norwegian beer is. They don’t smack you in the face, but have well rounded, very satisfying flavours. Decent head, nice colour, excellent flavour. Bottle.
