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.

Wow. This may be my new favourite light lager. Grassy aroma and a tiny head. But the hops on the palate are what's really interesting here. Really enjoyable with a lung pleasant finish. Nicely done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. fairly clear darker yellow colour with a decent head. I find the aroma not pleasant, with a dank wet cardboard aroma and something soured; light roast, some citric hops and a bunch of funk that i associate with pilsners. medium bodied brew(which to me was surprising), some bite and a fast flavour profile. It is different, maybe a bit bigger and more flavourful than other brews in its class but does that make it a good beer...probably not.

On tap at the Amsterdam Brewhouse. Pours a clear orange colour with average-sized white head and steady light bubbles. Aroma is toasty cracker, modest herbal character and gentle citric hops. Flavour toasty wheat, modest herbal bitterness and hints of citrus. Average carbonation. Average body. Stunningly good lager.

Darker golden lager some carbination. Big bubbly head leaves little bite of laceing. Smell is fimilar but of a craft lager not macro lager smell so not that just beer smell but nothing super awesome. Taste well itís a crisp lager with some water,mabye some grain,bread & barly. Plus it has some sweetness a bit to it so Iím not big on it. A little bit of a sweet maybe little spicy as well craft lager type lager. Also some what of a dry lager.
