Poor pale lager. Poorest one from Mack. Just the average norwegian industrial lager, no character and lack of freshness.

Holmen1 (2473) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUL 14, 2013
Boks i gapahuken til Lillegutt: selv ikke den spektakulære utsikten kunne redde inntrykket, dette er tynne saker (nesten like tynt som deres sommerøl).

Arve_Christian (3073) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 28, 2013
On 33 cl bottle from Meny Løren,Oslo. Golden color, good foam. Some very light hop aromas & malt; but mostly boiled vegetables Light body & complexity. Ok bitterness and balance Ok enough, but not interesting

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2013
On tap at Kaia Bryggeri (Bodo). Boring golden body with a thin white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with bready and grassy hints. Its fresh hoppy taste carries herbal and flowery notes. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Ordinary, but not too bad.

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2013
330ml can after working during a weekend. Courtesy of my employer:-) Pale golden body, with some carbonation and tiny ring of bubbles sticking to the glass. Weak aroma, some hops, grass and grain. This is also mirrored in the taste, some bread and a hint of citrus as well. Thin bodied. (25.05.13)

fellebag (804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2013
Can 50cl. Small white head. Clear brew this one. Tiny soda bubbles. A sense of malt for aroma and flavour. Not too much here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad
