Premier Brands - the Canadian license holder for Headstrong Pale Ale - have taken the unique move of using the brand for a new beer that is not brewed at the original home of Headstrong, Montana’s Big Hole Brewing. Headstrong Munich Lager is their new offering, and like the Pale Ale, it is contract brewed at FX Matt for the Ontario market.

mcclainc50 (217) - New York, USA - OCT 11, 2014
Pours a golden color with a thick white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma of basic lagers. Tastes like one too very mild flavor, not much behind it, more of a hydration beer than a session our drinking beer.

Bouteille 650ml. De couleur cuivrée-orangée et légèrement voilée. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés, léger de houblon floral aux notes terreuses et herbeuses avec des notes de pain grillé et de caramel doux ainsi que quelques traces fruitées (agrumes). Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes aqueuses. Goût de grains de malt aux petites notes rôties avec des notes fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût malté de caramel doux avec de petites notes de miel puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon floral et herbeux. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légerement amer de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses avec de petites notes de grains.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 3, 2012
12oz bottle. Clearish gold with a small white head. Aroma is fruity esters and bready malt. Flavor is mostly malt with a light noble hop bitterness. Light body with soft carbonation. An alright beer, doesn’t have that clean lager character.

reebtogi (5682) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger off-white head that settles quite quickly leaving only a trace of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel malts and herbal hops. Taste is light caramel malty sweetness with a herbal hop bitterness that lingers. Nothing special about this one.

Metalchopz (3076) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
Originally rated July 2006. Second beer to come out of Headstrong Brewing. Crafted date on side of label is on March 2006. Pours a golden-amber colour with a small head that dissipates quickly and leaves small amounts of lace. Average tiny bubble carbonation. Aroma of grainy malt with a touch of malt liquor alcohol. Watery mouthfeel that is mildly sticky. Crisp, with a slight dry finish. Mild bitterness throughout the taste with some maltiness. Slight buttery aftertaste. A better than average lager, but nothing to kill for.

473ml can. More flavourful than a typical lager while retaining a refreashing, easy drinking quality of the style.
