LBarouf (127) - Ontario, - NOV 17, 2012
500ml can. A light golden colour with a thick white head. Citric, malty aroma, pleasant smell for a lager. Sweet corn like taste with a hint of malt. Mildly bitter finish, though pretty light overall. Kind of disappointing for a micro, but not bad in my opinion. Re-rate: I tried this in a bottle for the first time, may have been a little kinder cause it was in a keg the first time, but this is pretty bland, while some light flavour accents prevent it from full blown sucking.

Bierdimpfe (349) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 28, 2016
Bright dark straw color with a low amount of activity. Weak creamy white half a finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, and creating a good amount of lacing. Flavors of caramel, cookies, roasted grains, faint corn and noble hops. More bitter and sharp than sugary. Slick and smooth medium body with crispy carbonation. Light finish with a lingering syrupy sweet roasted malt feel, and faint grassy noble hops. Overall average quality craft. Decent flavors, okay freshness, a little too light. Slightly too syrupy, and way too accessible with a hint of adjunct.

Frothmeister (727) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2016
473ml can. Pours a clear pale yellow with a head of white bubbles with some pretty decent carbonation. On the nose, not much to differentiate this from a domestic lager. Sweet malt, light icing sugar, a light apple juice note, faint mineral notes, and some white bread. Taste wise, watery sweet malt with light mineral notes that heads into more of the same with a light dusty/woody note, white bread, and some mild bitterness in the finish. Tastes like a domestic with SLIGHTLY more hops. This is 100% not worth the price.

Tranquillity (1861) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2015
Draught. Clear body, small white head. Yeasty aroma. The taste is quite hoppy with some citrus notes.

mzaar (2799) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2015
Fat. Klar guldfärgad med ett litet vitt skum. Dofter av hö, säd och malt. Smakinslag av örter, citrus och säd. Något tunn, men frisk och lättdrucken.

vadie (1231) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Jaune pâle avec une petite robe blanche. L’arôme des céréales avec un peu de miel et houblon floral. Facile a boire et légère.

Clean, malty blonde lager. Floral yeasty aromas with much of the same in the flavor with a crisp and smooth finish.

adamnowek (1831) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 4, 2015
Colossally boring blonde brew. Really malty aroma and taste. I'd have it if I had no other option.

Gluepot (428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2015
Funny name for a lager. Was expecting a Blonde ale. Refreshing malt forward lager. A bit crisper than a major commercial lager, but very little going on here for a micro product. Not regretting drinking it though on a hot summer evening.

This stuff is pretty boring. Light gold pour with a clean white cap, very mild retention. Nose is pale grain and a bit of hay. Taste is pretty boring pale malt, slightly watery, with a hint of bitterness on the finish. It’s a pale lager alright....
