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.

Pours a generic lager gold with a medium white head. I was a little miffed not to be rewardewd even with a hiss as I opened the can, but there is evident carbonation. Aromawise there’s a trace of musty funkiness as if the can had been left out in the sun on some dockside somewhere between there and here. The taste is of sweet lager malt and that’s where it stops. Simple and unrewarding.

500ml can from the LCBO. Very generic lager with the gold colour and hay taste, etc. Not bad, but nothing remarkable.

Same can as pictured. Poured clear golden yellow with little head. Kind of unpleasant harsh finish with some hay. Alright I suppose.

Very mild watery lager beer. Not as bad as some reviewers are claiming in that it is not unpleasant or hard to drink and even if it is mostly tasteless that is still better than a lot of macro style bland lagers.

Pale straw colour. Very light herbal aroma. Lightly grassy with a little bit of wet cardboard flavour. Very light and drinks like a tropical lager.

Rasmus40 (17527) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2011
Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is chalk. I’ve never had that in a beer before, but I have no better word to describe it. Flavor is medium sweet with no bitterness. Watery and thin. Finishes sweet as well. Crappy lager. How is this a premium lager? It certainly doesn’t fit the describtion on this site. 030311
