Lukter som lager, ser ut som lager med fin gyllen farge. Lite skum. Smaker som lager men dog med litt mer smake enn en del av de andre 6 paknings ølene. Helt greit drikke øl.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Double-tested, 33 cl bottle and 50 cl alu-can 4,5% Lager Beer, in both cases poured into flute:
Vanilla-white normal head from bottle, tall head from can.
Scents fruity, mild, cinnamon, pearly sugar, bathroom soap.
Yellow golden ("kulta" means gold) body, low carbonated.
Mild taste, hops, malts, herbs, maybe a tiny meadwort.
Mild mouthfeel, but not really watery as many other supermarket lagers.
Bread appears at the end, and from can somewhat earlier.
Gentle aftertaste, breads, hops, grain, malts.
The "arctic gold" is one of the better supermarket pale lagers on the market today.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a tall can into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a clear gold-light amber color with noticeable bubbles, and a smaller foamy white head that had shorter retention, and light-to-average lacing and cling. Its aroma featured a grainy, grassy, and straw hops blend, along with light malty undertones. The taste was somewhat bitter and grassy, with a subtle sour grain character mixed in. It had a fairly carbonated, lively body, and a thinner, lighter mouthfeel, with a pretty dry body and effect. Thank you Eric for the international gift!

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Tasted blindfolded) Bright yellow color with minimal head. Watery, quite uninspiring taste which is very quick. Aftertaste tries to save the beer with some malt flavors but it isn’t enough.
