COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When your brewmaster comes up with a recipe as good as this one, you let him name the beer whatever he wants. Here’s what makes our recipe so darn good: a rich burnt orange colour, darker than most lagers, a smooth, medium body with a bold, but pleasant, hop taste, full of flavour, unlike your traditional ’cold-as-ice’ beers with no taste, made with only the best ingredients, including Canadian & English Malts, and German & Czech Hops.

My first impression was this lager tastes like the aluminum can. The flavor has some mild hops, the color is golden with a white small head, nothing special. I don’t plan to try this again. Not impressed.

Got a 4pk of this in pint cans as a gift. I do like the darker lager coloring. Not a huge fan of the empty mouthfeel (similar to ab inbev stuff). Taste was okay. Overall, not one of my favored beers in the lager style, but possibly could serve as an excellent transition beer for people like my father, who only drink bud and coors.

This was not at all what the description or rating says. Pretty bland with no real redeeming qualities. Just swill with some good marketing. Blah

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2013
Canette 473ml. De couleur ambrée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés, moyen de caramel aux petites notes terreuses, léger de houblon herbeux avec de faibles notes fruitées (agrumes). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux petites notes huileuses. Petites notes fruitées (agrumes) et accompagné de grains de malt sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de caramel aux faibles notes terreuses ainsi que des petites notes de biscuits au beurre et des traces de sucre blanc puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût moyen-court, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux.

Crel (37) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 3, 2013
Pours amber colour with way too much head. Aroma is citus, with bit of a stale smell (think spilled dry beer). Carbonation is very evident on the pallet. Weak hops bitterness, slightly tanic. A little bit of initial sweetness. Not a complex flavour. Overall, this is an okay beer, but is intended as a next step for those drinking a Molson-Coors products.

cheap (4570) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2012
New selection at my local beer store, from a bottle. Fairly smooth lager aroma bordering on old lager. Look is fairly pale lager. More personality compared to a pale lager. Has some fruitiness inthe background. A little slag on the palate and a good amount of co2. Goes down fairly easy but there is a little bit of mild bitterness building on the tongue during the session. Yes, personality continues to build as you drink. Finishes with a mild medicinal feel. Would like to try this on tap. I have tasted more mannered viennas.

mansquito (4110) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Buckets, Jenkintown 12oz ($4.25): Pours an amber color with a small head. Aroma is faint caramel malt. Taste is faint anything. This was not any worse or better than the Yuengling I drank right before it.

Beerathon (1558) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Prettiest lager I’ve ever laid eyes on. Super smooth finish, with delicate hop/malt balance. Toasted malts in the nose. Good, full flavored lager. Would definitely have again.

nike (966) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2012
On tap at Gene’s Place in Oakland (Pittsburgh, PA) Overall, not bad, aroma is faint, light to medium body, slight hop taste. Maybe, I like this style of beer.

It pours a clear but dark orange with a quickly fading head that doesn’t leave much lacing. The aroma is fairly malty. The taste is clean and crisp but far less watery than most lagers. It is nice and drinkable but also carries it’s flavor through the finish. Not too shabby!
