Fin (7018) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, - JAN 18, 2013
Stopped regular rating 22nd Oct 2012 so this is one of my occasional ratings. Bottle at a theatre type cafe/bar Kinema? Tromso, Friday 18th January 2013 Clear gold and whilst bubbly if there was a head it soon went. Typical strong lager, touch metallic and corny but decently bitter and sweetness whilst there didn’t detract. Ok it is just a strong lager but I didn’t mind it at all. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

djoeye (896) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2013
Bought a 50cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, new design, differs from the old 33cl one (and before that we had Mack Export). Scents of sweet malts, honey, with hints from cardamom or ginger. No head to talk about. Golden to yellow body. Roasted hops and malts in the taste, and I start to think about brandy or cognac. Alcohol.... Warm mouthfeel as a whisky. Not hard to drink, and some pleasant aromas all the way. Alcoholic and roasted malts at the end, even malty candies. I prefer lighter beers than this, but for those who enjoy strong lagers, this could be a pleasant meeting. My rating number 200 was dedicated the real Mack Gull (Gullmack).

Bottle as Gullmack. Golden with medium head. Sweet malty aroma. Some sweet light bitter taste. Taste and aroma is like a typical dark lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (6087) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2013
500 ml bottle. BB? (Vinmonopolet) Kirkenes, Norway.
Clear golden colour with a tiny white head. The aroma is very mild. Maybe some flower notes... maybe not... The flavour is... alcohol. Yuck! Some mild pepper, alcohol, more alcohol, mild bitterness and some maltiness. Bad bad bad...

Eructoblaster (2852) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2013
Bottle - 500ml. Golden body with a thin white foamy head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with weird chemical hints. Taste carries sweet and alcohol notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Rocketfuel.
