Pours a clouded amber gold with an absolutely obscene amount of head. I mean...hello...might we be over-carbonated here? Sheesh! Nose is slightly citrus and a bit of dough. Flavor is crisp and refreshing. It kind of reminds me of Belgian yeast. What’s up with that? I love the Belgian styles...and this is reminiscent of that for me. After time I get a slightly sweet, seemingly yeast infused brew. I just get a lot of strong yeasty characters from this one. Perhaps it is a bad bottle? Well. The carbonation is pretty big on the tongue and the liquid feel is what you would expect. Overall a good drinker. But for some reason I think the bottle might not be exactly right...but thankfully it hasn’t altered the taste at all. It’s just over-carbonated is all. I still think it is a good brew and worthy of trying.

Leighton (13032) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle. A very solid lager. Pours a glowing orange-brown with a decent white head. Big, malty nose with some fruity hints to it. Flavor is rich and smooth, heavy on the sweet malts with fruit notes and caramel. Medium in body with mild carbonation. Some pleasant bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

Frothmeister (614) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, light reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of burnt sugar, malt, faint yeast. Surprisingly flavourful for a lager. Tastes similar to Fuller’s ESB. Sponge toffee, treacle, dried fruits with some bitterness. A pleasant surprise! Honestly, if tasting blindly, I would never guess this was a lager.

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
Tap at Barcade. Amber beer with a very creamy white head. Lovely aroma with lots of flowery/spicy noble hop aroma over a soft earthy malt base. A hint of wheaty spice as well. Flavours are similar, with nothing earthshattering, but an very tasty balance of spicy hops and a dry finish that make you craze another mouthful. The definition of quaffability. Great session beer.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2007
12oz bottle @ Prism Gallery/Restaurant in Rockport Maine. Pretty pour, copper with a big 2 and half finger fading cream head. Aroma is rich, frothy bitter nose. Taste is rich and seet, with a slight bitterness. Great Lager, pretty tasty. The bees flying around the garden seemed to be attracted to it as well.

This was the best lager I’ve had in quite some time. Just a very nicely balanced thirst quenching beer. I would say it is a throwback to the old days when men were men and women were glad about it.

notalush (5172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2005
A respectable vienna - strawberry blonde in color, herbal aroma with a touch of sweetness - quite hoppy, even for the style - a mild grainy maltiness - finishes clean

Nice amber color with a big malty nose. Nice malty-ness taste with an equally nice mouthfeel.
