2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can. Hum drum beer. No aroma to speak of - some cider maybe. Head disappears mid-pour! No joke! Not even a lace. Pale yellow (Lovibond 4) is uninspiring. First swig is the best. Sweetness, some bitter roundness and a nice creamy buttery taste - only detected on the first swig. Weird.
Medium carbonation, okay palate - somewhat greasy mouthfeel.

Yeah itís nice to have a bit of bite in a pale lager, however small it is. Itís made for people who are looking for something better than Canadian but arenít yet beer-curious (ahem). I respect this beer for what it is. (Wow, my TENTH RATING! To the moon...)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Originally rated May 2005. Poured a light yellow colour with not bad retention. There was big bubble carbonation at the bottom of the glass. The nose was of metallic scents with mild malt. The mouthfeel was flat and smooth. Tasted mostly corn with very slight bitterness. Refreshingly clean, but a clear dissapointment.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow carbonated body, no head. Soft aroma of orange peels and hops, but not in a good way. Flavour is well-balanced malts with dry hops and a dry finish, this beerís saving grace. But even after that, it does not excel beyond the middle of the pack.

In can at Great Wolfe Lodge (!??!?). In a sea of crap, was surprised to find this can poolside at GWL. Not a lot of redeeming values, but at least some depth of flavour, and a tiny bit of bite.

[on tap as Embassy Blond at the Irish Embassy, Toronto, Ontario, Canada]
Slight hay aroma with some grain and sour ethanol. Clear gold under white wisps and a ring. Almost crisp malt flavour with some faint hay. Ethanolic notes with a subtle bitterness and some onions. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

Pale gold pour with a white head. Straw aroma and flavor. Straightforward and boring. Tastes how it look.

Well, for a pale lager this is okay. Crisp, clean, clear, and thereís a touch of bitter flavour there. Okay.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A pretty tasteless beer. Sours after a few sips, unremarkable. I guess they just market themselves on the dutch name thing, hoping people like me think itís something better... On tap

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
473ml can. Aroma is wheaty malt. VERY clear golden colour, about one finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Taste is rather simple grain malts, a little sweet without being too sticky. A bit of herbal hops on the first save this from being totally generic. Body is light and refreshing, gets close to being watery but not quite.
