Just like you, but different
I finally made it to the a bottle store in Milford on the North Shore of Auckland. And what a treat, it has the most amazing selection of spirits and Wines, and craft beers. So it was hard to go past something new.
Mack Ølbryggeri make the Mack Isbjørn in 🇳🇴 Tromsø, Norway as a Pilsner – Other with an ABV of 4.5%, this should be 1.8 standard drinks in NZ
The can has the same bear that’s on the Toblerone packaging 🙂 It is very pale compared to the Arctic beer I also had.
It also has a bit more character and a little bit more bite, but not a lot and not enough except to say that it’s not as good, and perhaps they should have let sleeping Bears lie.
Lys pilsner. Isbjørn er en lys og leskende pilsner som smaker like godt på late sommerdager som mørke vinterkvelder. Ingredienser: Vann, byggmalt, humle og gjær.
After several years in hibernation, one of Mack’s most selling products of all time made its comeback. Isbjørn – A modern classic. The beer itself is a pale, refreshing pilsner that is just as good on lazy summer days as on long dark winter nights.
The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 6 on the arbitrary number scale. This really isn’t that good a beer that there was a reason to revive it, unless it was, surprisingly, about the money, and it has a great logo, again money. There’s been no expense spent to bring this market I’d wager.
Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.Philip himself.
