Lagerboy (1663) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
Clear light copper, foaming off white head fades to an oily film. Vague sweet malt aroma. Sour-ish corny carmel infused malt taste, some citric bitterness. Softly carbed, light bodied, low hopped. Thin slick soft finish. Probably tastes better straight from the can. Danish industrial swill. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

AtronSeige (1040) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 14, 2013
Pours a clear amber with a nice, frothy head. Very little carbonation is visible. Head quickly recedes to almost nothing. Very little aroma. Slight metallic tinge that may be from the can. There is a small bit of caramel malt aroma in the background. Medium-low bitterness with a bit of malt sweetness. Light bodied and quite fizzy in the mouth. Very abrupt finish. It fits the deScription of an American Dark lager to the T, but it is overall a almost flavourless, odourless beer. It is a beer that I would gladly accept on a warm summer day (unlike the other Faxe products that I have tried). I will not go in search of this beer. It may be a good beer to give to light beer drinking people to introduce them to imported beer. 500ml Can, Poured

Viper666 (2811) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
Canette 500ml. De couleur ambrée-dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés, léger de caramel doux, avec des notes de maïs sucré ainsi que quelques traces métalliques et de houblon floral. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement huileuse. Goût de grains de malt pâle très légèrement croustillant avec un léger goût de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un léger goût de caramel doux avec des traces de toffee rôti (petites traces de sucre brûlé) et de quelques traces de maïs puis en finale l’on retrouve une faible amertume de houblon floral asséchante. Post-goût moyen et sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral avec des traces rôties et métalliques.

I just made amber ale from a kit and it was far better than this. I have no real comments as there is not much going on I this beer, other than the great colour. My wife who is not a beer drinker actually liked it because it was so light and muted. Those of us expectIng amber flavour are appalled. JSJ

Very disappointing. I always expect something special when a beer has a little colour to it. An almost flavourless lager. Coors Light has more flavour than this one. Skip it.

zenkis (706) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 19, 2012
Low aroma of malt sweetness, no hops. Pours deep amber with a bit creamy white medium top, foam layer stays for long, good residue on glass. Middle sweet taste with low bitterness, no roast or toast, light caramel. Medium body with lively carbonation an light bitterness afterpath, a bit sour. Overall drinkable lager with good body, no unpleasant aspects, but to be really well done - must have some notable tones.

500ml can I find myself going back to this one fairly often, I’m not sure why. I guess there’s just not many ambers you can buy in singles, and this one is always so readily available. Pours a nice dark copper with a generous head that fades to minimal lacing. As ambers go, this one is weak, and lacks complexity. There’s some mellowness in there, but like most Faxe products I’ve had, it’s hard to identify what you’re supposed to like in this beer.

Can. Light brown colour, with thick foam. sweeter barley flavor and taste of roasted barley. This beer you drin once and that’s enough.
