Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color lager with a big pure white foamy head with medium retention and no lacing. Aroma if quite refreshing with a light sweet malt profile. Taste is also quite one-dimensional with some medium sweet malt and very subtle floral notes. This beer was as easily drinkable as it is easily forgettable.

Thanks to rsamayoa. Bottle. Drank it at El Flor. Pours a very pale yellow with a small white head. Light bodied, a bit metallic and skunky.

RaphaelN (195) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2008
On tap at McThirsty’s Pint. Poured a hazy blonde liquid. Appearance was somewhat attractive and not as clear as the common lager. Nose was curious with bread, and a slight hint of spice. Taste was totally different from the rest of my observation. Very foul and unpleasant. Unbalanced hop profile and dominating in bitter rye. Not recommended.

IrishBoy (3836) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAR 29, 2008
500 ml bottle from Harry! Nose is lightly flowery with some light caramel maltiness; yellow-orange with a small yellow head; flavor has a little pepperiness, a little caramel, and some minor hop bitterness.

ILduce (205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2008
On tap @ Wegz: Golden under a small white head. Nice lacing. Grassy floral hop aroma. A little grainy with a watery finish.

probstblueribbon (2916) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2008
500 mL bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a minute white head. Aroma: Surprising caramel/toffee, some bread/dough, non-descript fruitiness, a bit of diacetyl(?). Palate: Medium body and medium-soft carbonation. Flav.: Bread, cardboard, none of the malty or fruity notes from the nose; nothing much on the finish, a bit of mineral.

Like so many blondes, this one is attractive until you get to know it.

rob6239 (622) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2008
A golden lager with a bit of a good frothy head. This is a lager, not an ale, and has a smooth, crisp lager taste.

garthicus (2670) - Dublin, IRELAND - JAN 26, 2008
Bottle: Gold-yellow colour with a short white head. A bit of a used diaper aroma; amonia and grass. Confusing hay and doc leaf flavour, quite stomach churning - DRAINPOUR
