MartinT (8661) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Minutious toast is imbued with citrusy, spicy refinement in this fabulously drinkable, dry lager.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A fluffy head of foam protects the clear pale golden shine.
-The nose and flavor profile are multifaceted; very appealing for such a discreet brew.
-The mouthfeel is super clean and supremely drinkable. This is surely a marvelous session lager at the brewery.
-The prickly, forced carbonation fits the flavor profile perfectly, contrarily to their Lagerbier in which effervescence was overwhelming.

Koelschtrinker (13640) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Süßlich hopfiger Antrunk auf sehr milder Intensität. Sehr wenig herb, bleibend. Im mittelteil findet keine Veränderung statt, das Bier gleitet einfach nur aus. Ganz leicht trocken, zum Ende aromatisch hopfig. 10/8/9/9//9

Oakes (13659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2009
Golden, sparkly. Nice thick head. Deep pale malt and noble hop aroma. Light to moderate bitterness but lots of bready pale malts. Good balanced beer straddling the line between a helles and a pils. Late diacetyl emerging.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2009
draft @ brewery. Golden and clear with gorgeous doily lacing. Aroma is very clean, with cereal and granola. Is a bit thin and watery in the palate. Clean, almost too clean. No farm flavors but every once in a while the hops come out and there are some nice blonde wood flavors too.

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2009
Bottle, 4.8% bought at the brewpub. Weak flowery aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is quite malty, light malts and a hint of chalk. Mild and mellow, but OK.
