3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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).

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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...

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.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Nice golden colour. Medium, non-lasting white head. Little aroma, pilsner notes in it. Nicely heavy body with dominant bitterness and light pilsner character. Quality, but not my kind of beer, unfortunately.
