Bright yellow w/ white fluffy head. Light nose: some grass & perhaps sweet fruit. Light body. Flavour is mildly malty & slightly bitter. A very quaffable brew. Quite good for what it is . . . for what it is.

There isn’t much taste to this beer. But just enough to be better then your normal major mass produced lager. Since this beer was made back in the 80’s when Amsterdam was the only micro brewery in Toronto and being a blonde lager I wasn’t expecting to much from this beer. In recent years Amsterdam brewery has came up with some more bolder and impressive beers. This brewery has come a long way and is still out there competing. Low score for this beer, but not a bad brewery.

On tap. Clear golden colour, some white head that does not stay. Medium carbonation. Bready (dough) aroma, some apple notes and green malt. Taste of grain and a hint of grassy, herbal hops. Refreshing but nothing special. Good for lunch at the patio in the summer.

473 mL can. Pours golden with a lacy white head. A little straw and apple on the nose. Light bodied and refreshing with high carbonation. Dry with a lightly hopped finish. Boring but good for killing thirst.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Looks like a typical looking lager Gold not blonde I say. Some head that laced a while and laces. small carbination bubbles at times and some on glass. Smell is light sweet warm appleish smell. Taste is water,warmthish and like some light sweetness that seems like apple in the taste. There is worse and better lagers out there. This one might even have some hops. cheer’s!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can. Hum drum beer. No aroma to speak of - some cider maybe. Head disappears mid-pour! No joke! Not even a lace. Pale yellow (Lovibond 4) is uninspiring. First swig is the best. Sweetness, some bitter roundness and a nice creamy buttery taste - only detected on the first swig. Weird.
Medium carbonation, okay palate - somewhat greasy mouthfeel.

Yeah it’s nice to have a bit of bite in a pale lager, however small it is. It’s made for people who are looking for something better than Canadian but aren’t yet beer-curious (ahem). I respect this beer for what it is. (Wow, my TENTH RATING! To the moon...)

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Originally rated May 2005. Poured a light yellow colour with not bad retention. There was big bubble carbonation at the bottom of the glass. The nose was of metallic scents with mild malt. The mouthfeel was flat and smooth. Tasted mostly corn with very slight bitterness. Refreshingly clean, but a clear dissapointment.
