1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a pale yellow body with a large, short-lasting foamy white head. Aroma is harsh metal notes, pale malts and hints of cooked vegetables and dry grass far in the back. Taste is pale malts, washy-tasting grainy tones and hints of maize in the back. Light body, soft to medium carbonation. This one is really low on all parameters, even for a pale lager. Drain pour.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Vaaland, Bryne. Pours pale straw coloured with a big foamy white head, fast collapsing. Aroma is very much like a Heineken, stale hops, not inviting at all. Taste is sweet, grainy with notes of corn, sweet until the end, very light hopped, almost not noticable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite refreshing, with the exact amount of pilsner notes in the aroma and the balance between bitterness and sweetness I hoped for. Not exciting, but good.

Can from Meny Oslo City enjoyed at home
Surprisingly, i came over this old rascal. Seems like Mack have started this pale lager again... Quite pale, big white head. Smells of light malts, faint hops, hints of yeast. Light sweet, dry, very clean and crisp, not much flavor here, but it would probably work well in the heat. Moderate bitter, hints of spices and dust.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Mack Isbjørn is back on the market, found a 33 cl metallic blue can, brewed Feb 6th 2014 (BBF.Feb6th2015).
It pours a fluffy white head on the pale pale straw yellow body.
Citric scents, lemon cream, grass, apple.
Malts appear in taste, grainy hops, bread, dough.
Slightly yeasty to palate, not at all as watery as expected.
Finished with lemon-like malts, bread, malted barley aroma fades out, good.
Overall quite tasty, considering that I drank it only few days after it was tapped.
Easy to drink.
