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.

Golden colour with big white head that disapates quickly. Sweet bubblegum aroma. Very bland. Can from Countdown, $3 special :(

Can from Euro Shop, Wolverhampton. Pours fine, looks fine, doesn’t smell too bad. Taste however is the most absent I have ever encountered. CANNOT believe this is 5% - it tastes like condensed air. Slight bitter tears on finish - but that is basically all you’re getting out of this experience. May be the worst beer I’ve ever had, and that is some crumb of comfort to cling onto.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 Smells a little hoppy, a little skunky. Shitty palate, shitty aftertaste. Shitty blond lager. Avoid at all costs.

Golden-yellow in colour with a thin white head, very little lacing. Aroma is grainy, some corn and metal, cereal, smoky donuts. Flavour is thin and metallic, lots of corn and cereal, a freaking farmers field this is. Corn water mouthfeel, light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes dirty, corny.

This is from Belgium?? This made my teeth hurt, enough said.

500ml can purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario.
Opened on May 7, 2010.
Best before December 11, 2010.

piscator34 (2033) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 17, 2012
Canned sample. Gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of mild grassy (Saaz-like?) hops, chalk, and pilsner malt. Faint flavours are of bone dry pilsner malt and salt. Very light bodied. Smelled ok, but dry to the point of tasting of and having the mouthfeel of nothing. Bland.

500ml can from LCBO. Nothing special here. Crystal clear golden colour with medium white head. Mild. Pretty tasteless in fact. Skip this one.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2012
Silver can from that place in Whitestone that used to be a garage, then a chippy, then a Netto. Bright gold beer with a skim of froth. Bit of a wet dog aroma; caramel hints, boiled sweets, rubber, Madeira cake- strong lager. Palate has Rice Crispies, cereal, hints of boiled vegetable petering into a vapid, wet air finish. No aftertaste. The kind of lager that gives lager a bad name; I might grudgingly sink a few frosted mugs of it by the pool in Greece or Turkey, but not here, not tonight. It’s not actively offensive just very, very watery. May tip out of boredom.

Digital_Aura (227) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2012
UPDATED: APR 13, 2012 500ml can. Fairly uninteresting beer. Nice aroma and appearance, with avg head and lace. Clear yellow (Lovibond 5). Fairly flat medium bodied texture and taste. Light flavours. Odd metallic aftertaste at first that goes away once youre into it. Uninspired.

Tiger_08 (137) - Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
March 20 2012. 500ml can poured into lager glass. Bright gold colour with nice fluffy 1" white head. Head fades to thin layer halfway but very nice lacing endures. Strong hops smell at first with hints of sweet grass. Good carbonation. Wet palate, not strong at all. Overpowering metallic bite dominates palate and aftertaste. Hint of citrus but more acidic than flavourful. Cheap, but that only matters if the beer doesn't and that only matters when buying a case not a can. I only mention cost because unfortunately its the best feature.

500ml can, 5% a/v Pours an average lager, medium gold, white head. Aroma is hoppy and grassy, somewhat similar to Budvar. Taste is not even close to budvar. Metallic, wet leather, and an earthyness very close to dirt.. not impressed. Palate is full but you want the taste to stop. Overall.. bad, but I finished it, so not awful.
