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

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

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.

Canette de 473ml. Bière blonde immaculé, peu de mousse, claire, très claire. Nez frais discret de grain, maïs, houblon. Bouche classique, peu de goût, léger, rafraichissant. Ordinaire.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2011
Can - 473ml. Golden body with average carbonaiton and a thin white frothy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with some grassy and bready hints. Taste is watery. Some malty and corny flavors are detectable. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Boring.

Gpnterojd (176) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 It’s mild. It’s bland. It smells like cider. It tastes like flax. A touch of hops. I’ve had better lagers for cheaper. 2.3 Re rate, Aug 21 2013: Fruity aroma, apricots and peaches prominent. Taste is inoffensive and nondescript. Very minimalistic, but thirst quenching and enjoyable on a hot day.

Nothing overly offensive about this, I got some 355ml bottles from the Beer Store and it’s mild as I remember it. Nothing strong in the scent nor taste other than what you’d expect. Descriptions mentions some hops but I don’t really find it. Corn and malt probably. Fine for a session beer because it’s light and local
