2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 Medium off-white head of large bubbles; clear, dark red body. Sweet malty aroma, notes of bread; faint notes of coffee. Not that much aroma. Sweet taste, with some off notes, maybe some butter. Faint bitterness, faint burntess. Not very much taste, and some of what is there isn’t entirely right. Well. It’s OK, I guess. A disappointment, this, as
some of the other Mack stuff is quite good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazy brown beer with a thin lazing brown head. The aroma is light, but sweet malty, and the flavor is pretty one-dimensional sweet malty, only with hints of caramel.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(on bottle)has a wonderfull aroma, loads of rotten fruits, dark malts and barley of the field. And the first few sips are OK, but sweet. This sweetness turns into a sticky, almost stomack-turning yuckiness, coulden´t finish the bottle. Not impressed Tromsø, and I even lived up there for two years, nothing to brag about for this one.
