2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Clear, pale golden pour, with a nice, white head with short duration. The aroma isn’t too evident, with notes of ripe fruit, grains and hay, and not so much maltyness. Quite fruity flavor with hay and grass. A bit floral. There’s some hoppy bitterness in it, coming stronger towards the end. Quite thin mouthfeel. A forgettable beer that still surprised me in a positive way. The beer is certainly refreshing, and I guess there’s a good chance for the brewery to hit its target, youth with cash burning in their pockets. (071118)

Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s a hazy, golden beer with an OK head. The aroma is weak with light notes of malt and some fruit. The flavour has sweetness, notes of malt and light fruit. OK flavour, just too little of it...

Mack launced its new series Fluid in early October 07. Fluid is ecologically brewed and according to the advertisement only the fines raw materials have been used. The modern design on the four-pack and on the cans has also been stressed. However, the design does not make me think of beer, but rather of clothes.
My rating is based on three cans with The Fine Lager (330ml, 4.7% ABV). Pours a creamy, white head with moderate duration. Clear straw coloured body. Grassy aroma with light hints of fruity hops. Grain and pale malt in flavour offset by a brush of lemon. Some bitterness can be detected at the ending. Soft and a bit foamy mouthfeel. Moderate palate. One of the best of its kind from Mack - which does not really say a lot (Tromsø, Oct.07).
