Can. Nothing wrong with Hop City I say. She smells of light citrus and pine. Tastes of caramel, grass, and light pine, and some spicy hops. Has a heavier mouth fell than most lagers and that is a good thing. I was quite pleased with this lager.....for a lager.

Bottle. Pours a deep amber cool with no head. Aroma is strange, kind of medicinal, not good. Taste is malt forward, not what I was expecting from a brewery called hop city. The beginning is odd and funky while the end is a bit bitter and to style. It seems like it had promise but ended up being pretty pedestrian for me, just okay.

On tap. Amber pour with a white head. Very caramel. So much caramel. Kind of metallic. Not a bad mouthfeel for the style, but very one-dimensional flavour.

from Bier-Bienne - pretty clear reddish-amber beer with a little foam left; caramel dominates with hints of walnuts; medium-bodied, soft palate yet with a late earthy tartness; gentle bitterness, quite dry and with malty caramelish and flowery notes in the finish

When your barmaid brings you this pour it’ll be deep amber with a half finger cap. Aroma is muted. The big uh-oh here is the taste. What in the world is with that coppery blood in the mouth profile? Not cool. Could be good but wow. No thanks.

Dégustée en fût au Pub Italia à Ottawa le 14 juillet 2011. Bière blonde limpide tirant sur le orange. Col mince blanc persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles fines. Légère odeur de noix de Grenoble. Très douce, assez sucrée, amère en finale. Saveur légère de noix, d’huile de noix. Très bonne, rafraîchissante. Sucre bien présent mais ne ressort pas trop. Corps moyen.
