33cl bottle, 4,5%, supermarket. Fluffy head on a pale yellow body. Scent HHH, herbs, hops, hay. Taste light bitter hops, carbonation, metal. Tries to balance. Aftertaste vague. Overall; recommended together with something salty or spicy. It is not a great experience just the beer.

rosenbergh (9164) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2013
330 ml bottle. 4.5%. BB 19/Feb/14. (Rema 1000) Kirkenes, Norway.
Clear pale golden colour with a tiny white head. Sweetness, mild stale hops and some malt in the aroma. Not very tempting. The flavour is... quite frankly it’s bad. I was expecting totally tasteless pale lager but there’s some flavour. Unfortunately it’s quite bad. It’s a bit like strong Baltic lager which is quite strange as there’s only 4.5% in this one. Stale. Watery.

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

Holmen1 (3936) - 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).

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 (3479) - 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)
