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 beer’s 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.

Block (1319) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Pale gold pour with a white head. Straw aroma and flavor. Straightforward and boring. Tastes how it look.

northropfrye (2083) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 21, 2011
Well, for a pale lager this is okay. Crisp, clean, clear, and there’s a touch of bitter flavour there. Okay.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2011
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 it’s something better... On tap

HeistAlmighty (1111) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - SEP 4, 2011
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.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Canette 473ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Léger nez de grains de malt pâle avec des notes herbeuses (herbes mouillées, traces de gazon), de pain et des traces de maïs sucré. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement aqueuse et aux très faibles notes crémeuses. Léger goût de grains de malt pâle accompagné de petites notes de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute des notes de pain mouillé et des traces de maïs sucré puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût herbeux (herbes mouillées, léger de gazon). Post-goût très court, composé d’un léger goût herbeux.

draught. Golden colour, thin head. Aroma of grains and malt. Taste is light, grass grain, bread. Reasonably refreshing, but mostly just boring.

Had this on tap as it’s the only Micro my Gabby’s serves. Golden/Amber with a decent head that forgot to lace. smell - not much really - Sweet malt but that’s really it. Taste isn’t offensive but nothing to write home about - Bready with tart apple - a bit more than the smell suggests. Good for mowing the lawn if there’s nothing else in the fridge or giving to your coors friends but that’s about it.
