On tap at the brewery. Pours transparent golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, and some light toast/bread. Average to lighter texture. Good for the style. Hoppier than Natural Blond from this brewery.

On tap at the Amsterdam Brewhouse, Toronto waterfront. Straw with a ring of white head; grainy aroma; grainy in the mouth and quite full-bodied; with a light grassy bitterness to finish. Refreshing.

There is a sharpness of grass that I find overpowering. Itís almost metallic and has this grassy aftertaste like Iím drinking a farmers field. Is it made from grass? I just taste grass.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Clear pale malt character dominates this generic lagerís very mild herbal, citrusy hopping.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the clear gold.
-The finish is rather forgettable.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The prickly carbonation adds a mineral tinge.
-This may be generic, but it remains a well-made entry level ale with distinct malt flavors.

On tap at The Saint Tavern, Toronto.

Can. Pours straw yellow, thin white head that does not last long. Aroma is of damp grains, hay. Thin, light body, light grain taste with a prominent herbal hop bitterness. A bit of unexpected funkiness as well.

Amsterdam makes some darn tasty beers. This one is just Meh. Pours a clear golden with thin white head that disappears but quick! A good representative of lagers with lots of malt notes both in the smell and the taste, hay and bread. Clean finish. A sessionable kind of beer, but really not my bag.
