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.

rodenbach99 (3097) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2011
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 (2957) - 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.

duckdown (81) - GTA, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
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

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
Aroma: Really skunky, smells really off. Maybe like off cheese or rotting leaves or something nasty. Appearance: Golden brown, transparent, light head. Taste: Very strongly of bananas at first, quite sweet, slightly bitter. Not sour at all. The finish is awful though, like drinking moldy bread. Yuck. OMG Yuck. Palate: Smooth and carbonated.

Hammy78 (728) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
I’ve had this numerous times, but I for some reason can’t seem to deal with the aftertaste. Pours a golden colour. Smells and tastes of grain.

Ontbeertaster (2308) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2010
fine beer, very light easy to drink, not much to this beer. but I would drink it again.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2010
Not particularly of my liking, but truer to the European style than most of its competition. Not offensive, and would rather get than any macros, but unless you are into clean tasting lagers it’s hard to find reasons to have again.

thb (673) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2010
Pours straw/gold with good size bubbly head that actually lasts a respectable while. Aroma promises some fruitiness/floral notes but the taste is grain, grain, grain. Light malts There’s a medium sweetness to it too. Hops are hard to find outside a bit in the aroma. Not bad. 2.4 seems a little harsh as it’s really not UNpleasant...
