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.

Digital_Aura (228) - 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.

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.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
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.

BreWedge (487) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 4, 2012
500ml can. Crystal clear golden yellow appearance with good but short-lived foamy white head. Mild chalk and grain aroma. Very mild hop bitterness, slightly tinny with mild grain taste. Thin texture and light body and mild carbonation. Does not live up to the moniker “premium”.

johndoughty (5002) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Can. Yellow with a small head,.A weak body considering its strength. Nothing else to say about it. Its not a drain poorer just pretty bland. One for a summers afternoon only if nothing, and I mean nothing else is around.

leaparsons (9942) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2012
Can. Golden with an off white foam. Aromas are cereal and butter with hints of lemon. Metallic notes with pepper. Flavours are grain with crisp lemon and slick, oily butter. Heavily carbonated with hints of grassiness. Pretty bad.

This is my 2nd time or well at least not 1st time with it. Still as good as I remembered. cheap 1.95 a can in Canada. I smell a warmth from the hops and nothing else. Its heavy bodie from hops,I can taste some lemon/citrus type taste a bite and its really smooth and just really good. I would drink again! cheer’s. :)

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
50 cL can from the LCBO, served in a lager glass. Pours clear straw-golden with a moderate white head. The head fades slowly to a thin cover, leaving a moderate amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are notes of grass and pale malts. The flavour is moderately honey sweet with a hint of grassy hops. The finish is moderate in length and somewhat bitter with a grassy note. On the palate, it is light in body with a dry texture and average carbonation. Overall, this pale Euro lager is mediocre at best. Nothing interesting going on here. 2011-09-14

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2011
500 ml can from LCBO. Spritzy crystal clear lager whose head quickly diminishes. Lightly grainy nose with minimal trace herbal hop remains very subtle. Poor, I expected softer, breadier and rounder malt character, but we’re instead stuck with a underattenuated, very sweet beer with little character and a nose in which ricey and corny undertones I could live without.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011
Canette 500ml. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec des notes de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) aux faibles traces florales ainsi qu’avec des traces métalliques. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture moyennement aqueuse. Faibles notes de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un goût de grains de malt pâle légèrement sucrés puis en finale l’on retrouve de faibles notes amères de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) avec des notes métalliques. Post-goût court, aux faibles notes amères de houblon herbeux avec des traces de métal.
