COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (4214) - 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 (2295) - 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.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 15, 2011
473ml can. More flavourful than a typical lager while retaining a refreashing, easy drinking quality of the style.

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle. Poured into a DFH tulip glass an ever so slightly hazed deep copper color with a tiny white head that mostly collars around the glass. Toffee notes in the nose right off the bat with maybe a dash of caramel. Medium mouthfeel. Toffee again in the flavor as well with a slight roastiness that sets in. Semi-sweet. Ends kind of flat but crisp. Yeah, it’s fine, but I am sure there are way better examples of the style out there. Poor head retention and minimal lace.

douglas88 (6042) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 19, 2011
12 ounce bottle thanks to Toby. Pours a clear amber color with a small white head. A sweet grainy nose, some light biscuit and dried leaves. A sweet flavor much like a Oktoberfest; biscuit, light fruit, smooth and light spicy hops. Easygoing, nice.

Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2010
473 mL Can, Apr. 1, 2010. Gold body with a rocky white head that settles to a bubbly layer leaving good lace; highly effervescent. Aroma of grains earth, and resiny hops with very subtle hints of honey and floral. Flavor of sweet light malts and grains, hops express more strongly in the aftertaste, hints of honey and pear in the finish. Refreshing in its own way.
