COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Papillon (381) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2009
473 mL Can. Yellow body with a small short-lived fizzy-bubbly white head that leaves small spotty lacing. Pungent earthy-hoppy aroma with notes of honey and floral; there is a harshness to it. Sweet light malt with an innuendo of corn husk dominates in the flavor, peppery-hoppy aftertaste speaks up without overpowering, there is a certain tartness about the finish; it has a combination of wet straw and corn husk as well as something sour. Amsterdamn Disappointment.

patricks110 (1852) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2009
Very disappointing beer. Pour of bright golden ale with a thin off white head. Aroma of sweet corn, hops and fruit. Taste is corn, crisp and sweet. Slightly bitter finish.

rederic (3188) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 6, 2009
473ml can, bright yellow gold color, with an off-white head, light honeyed pale malt nose, with a hint of sweet corny cereal, and floral hop aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp honeyed pale malt character, with a hint of juicy lemony, flowery hop accent, leading towards a light lingering hop bitterness finish.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Poured a surprisingly light gold with no head. No noticable aroma or flavour. Dissapointing.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle courtesy of matt7215. Pours gold with a white head. Smells of pilsner malt, some fruity hints. Tastes of apples, sweet and slightly tarte with a weird aftertaste.

fredthecat (312) - CANADA - APR 22, 2009
smell is metallic and corny, it is straw yellow with a nice head. taste is bitter vegetables, cereal but fairly balanced. its an ok mouthfeel, drinkable and somewhat cheap but i kind of expected better from this company, i remember enjoying their brown ale.

mabel (7015) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 14, 2009
[1780-20081015] Tap. Yeasty aroma. Clear, medium orange yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Grainy sweet corn bread yeast with more yeast as it warms. Medium body. Works well with the arctic char filet, which was delicious, but otherwise this is just average.
