COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Born to create a fine lager: When your name is Berthold ’Beer’ Keller, it seems inevitable that you become a master brewer. Berthold was born in Bavaria and brought up in Belgium. He has a truly continental approach to brewing. Fusing styles he created this premium crisp, smooth lager with a rounded continental finish.

Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 5, 2009
Aroma is fresh and sweet lager. Clear bright yellow with thick white foamy head that laces glass as it thins. Refreshing, fresh buttery watery lager. Easy drinking for an all day summer beer fest. It’s a lager, it is what it is.

HogTownHarry (6064) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2009
Can ( 500ml ). Kinda gay-lookin’ can. Why is this swill "Premium?" Pale gold, large lasting fluffy sticky white head. Boring aroma - dry straw, honey, hint of plastic. Taste is watery and stale - paper, plastic and dead weeds - wishy-washy mouthfeel, dry, flat, harsh - ...................... tick.

Spab (2341) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2009
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear yellow gold with decent-sized white head; some lacing. Aroma of straw and corn. Grain and corn primarily for the flavour with some light hops in the finish. Mediocre.

Boutip (4669) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2009
Can: Poured a golden color lager with a medium bubbly head with actually good retention and some lacing. Aroma of adjunct and light cereal is pretty average. Taste is a mix between some adjunct and limited hops presence with a somewhat nice cereal presence. Body is about average with good carbonation. Below par overall and I have to wonder why somebody at the LCBO thought it would be a good idea to import this.

matt7215 (2167) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
500ml can from the LCBO. pours light golden with a lingering white head. steady carbonation but not over carbonated. aroma of lager malt, some dustiness. the flavour is slighly worse. some pale malt but also some adjunts. not real hopping except to slightly hold the sweetness in check. overall its a finishable pale lager.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2009
500 ml can from LCBO, served cool in a Scotch Irish taster glass.

App.: Clear deep golden with a fair white head. Aroma: Messy corn/grain/cereal, a fair hit of dusty cardboard, musty, toasted cereal (like puffed wheat), not really much else. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: Tired, stale, cardboard, cereal, dusty, grain, devoid of anything interesting; dry with a touch of bitterness, light, watery malt finish.

I guess like Canada or the US, you have to expect Belgium to produce some shit. This is some shit.

bright77blue (1) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2009 does not count
Vile excuse for a so called Euro beer. It tastes as if someone made a bad, watery beer and added alcohol to comply with the label. This is a ’paint by numbers’ liquid. I should have read the label more carefully.

berkshirejohn (4442) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 3, 2009
50cl can bought on Mill Road, Cambridge. Amber with a dense, loose, off-white head; unimpressive aroma of corn and stewed vegetables; very watery with a grainy flavour and a little sugar; before a blotting paper dry finish. This is enough to give Eurolagers a bad name. The ingredients list says it all :- Water, Barley Malt, UNMALTED CEREALS; Hops; HOP EXTRACT.
