Tap at Woolwich arms in Guelph, Ontario. Yellow body, with a thin white head. Faint fruity and hoppy aromas pair up with mild hops bitterness in the mouth, and a grassy lingering finish. Good amount of carbonation.

On tap at the Queenshead in Toronto. Dull aroma. Golden yellow, tin white head. Not much flavour. Slightly bitter. Much better when purchased at the brewery than anywhere else of course.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Had a nice aroma, almost citrus smell. appearance was just as the bottle says, blonde lager. Flavor was tangy almost like I.C.Light. Palate is watery like most pale lagers. Overall only gets 6/20 because its extremely overpriced

A very sweet lager. I’d be guessing crystal malt. Low hopping. Slight white wine flavour to the beer. Barely no aroma. Very plain beer. Not much more to say.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
I had this one for free from a Grand:pm show I saw at Sneaky Dee’s in downtown Toronto. It was free, and what the heck - I got another rating, but I’m still trying to figure out if it was worth it.
This beer is pale in colour, taste, and mouth feel. It has an overly corny taste which is the boldest thing going on. As it warms loads of warm sweet corn flavours come right through, which is offset by the high carbonation.
I didn’t give it much of a chance, because I drank it from the bottle, but a good beer should be able to come out if it has anything going for it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
The pour was disappointing...a nice light yellow color but the cap did not last and the lace was weak ( not a good sign when you’re expecting an all malt lager) The nose mwade up for it whith decent aromas of bready malts, sweet tones and a nice lemon twang in the hopping. Although the body is a tad on the weak side the malts stand out and the hops provide a nice lemon gras tone in the finish...then there is a gratifying biscuity after taste.
Not a bad stab at the all malt universal lager style...but like all Amsterdam brews, just a tad watery.

draught. Golden colour, minimal head. Aroma is grassy with notes of toasted malt. Thin body and not very flavourful. There was nothing really interesting about this beer.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Soapy, thin mouth feel a la typical Amsterdam. Another mediocre lager. Complements of Bow & Arrow anniversary night. Yellow colour. Some hops and bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear gold color with a big bubbled head. Aroma was mostly both corn & dough. Taste was typical lager, with an initial musty taste followed by more corn. Taste felt tinny and acidic. Not bad flavor minus the oxidation.
