Beautiful amber pour. Pretty hoppy for a lager. Good beer to check out if your in the New York area. Obviously much better on tap than in the bottle.

This is part of a beer club. Had only one bottle but was decent for the price. Poured great and had a nice finish. Would do again.

I enjoyed this on draft in Manhattan, and was really pleasantly surprised. The aroma was not too exciting, mostly grainy/earthy hops with a touch of caramel malt. A good appearance, a very dark rust color with a creamy, tan head. The flavor was quite good, hoppy and mostly bitter, but had some sweet aspects as well. I was very impressed with this type of palate from a lager. It was quite creamy and smooth, but still had ample carbonation, very well done. Overall, it exceeded my expectations and I would like to have it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
35.5 cL bottle. Pours deep orange, clear, with a slight off-white head. Fruity hops aroma, slight caramel malt. Malty flavour, slight roasted with a minor bread like note. Fruity and bitter hops join in a bit later, given a rather dry flavour into the finish with a minor refreshing fruity note. Slight soapy mouthfeel/flavour.

Light amber color. Smell of malt, hops, flowers and some pepper. Taste of hops, pepper, citrus, flowers and malt. Refreshing and not that bad.

I love this beer! Iím partial to Lagers and Pils yet I do enjoy the extra character a pale ale has....this beer is the perfect beer for me!
Full flavour, beautiful head for a lager that melts away into a nice cover that laces the glass all the way down....nice caramel color. Taste is full, feel is nice and it leaves a sparkle on your tongue.
This along with Christoffel Blond are my 2 favorites amongst the beers I can get in my region.
This is a nice step above Sams and IMO much better than Urquell or Czechvar.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2007 On tap at Beerbistro. I donít really like lagers, but maybe Iíve just drank the wrong kind. Nice hoppy aroma, and a taste of hops, fresh fruit and malt. Very pleasant. Iíve since bought a couple of bottles at the LCBO and it worked well paired with a thai red curry.

In glass on tap. Excellent lager. This has some character to it with a rich golden hue and pleasant hop aroma. A touch more thickness than many lagers with a good balance. Recommended.
