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.

Lightrider (326) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle into an ale glass. Aroma is all malt and not that strong, but the taste is rich and deep. Pour is a dark orange amber with a lace head. Finish is warm and sweet. A very good lager.

Kampfar (18) - Münster, GERMANY, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2015
Served from 0,33 L bottle. Clear, dark amber colored beer with off-white head. Heavy malty aroma recognizable yeast, less hops than expected. Flavor is light sweet followed by a moderate bitterness. Medium body with a normal to soft carbonation. Light astringent finish. Very balanced beer without edges, maybe too less edgy.

Quack-Duck (8861) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 27, 2015
bottle from Heinrichs 3000 Kornwestheim. Deep orange golden with a small white head. Malty with grainy hints, a touch of roasted malts and a good and aromatic hoppy finish.

Stoned99 (626) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
473ml can from LCBO. Thanks Audrée. Aroma: nuts, caramel and a bit of... vomit . App: clear red, huge beige head. Taste and palate: thin body, watery, soft carbonation, light sweetness, really really subtle bitter finish.. Overall: ouf, think it’s better to not say what I think of this beer and it’s smell. Dp

Reimer96 (1576) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 17, 2015
Nice malty Vienna lager with a malty flavor and nose... The hops Aroma and flavor tends to lose the point of doing lager... Not of fan of hoppy lagers.

DomD (184) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2015
Poured from can. Earthy aroma with some yest in there. Pours a clear amber with lots of white head. Very light bitter taste. Light body and thin texture. The look of this promises something different than a regular lager, but there isn’t much there different from most euro lagers.

Dacrza (664) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 13, 2015
DATE TASTED: August 13, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Sam Adams Boston lager... OCCASION: week seven at camp almost to an end... APPEARANCE: first, the head: thick, crunchy blanket of off-white retention that holds to a finger well after the pour; tracings are more like smears of clouds... dark amber body suggests a strong, substantial pint... for a lager, an appealing start... AROMA: thick malts that suggest syrup, nuts and bolder malt liquor of the 40 oz. variety ; the hops seem blanketed, as I do not detect the Saaz promised on the label; the Hallertau hints at rugged cone and varnish--an odd, challenging mix... PALATE: medium-bodied, smooth and warm at the throat; little to no action at the teeth; creamy throughout, which makes this almost match the allure of the appearance... TASTE: the muddled aroma proves true here, with some caramel and nut qualities to suggest a flavorful lager, and the hops do make a late appearance; not as robust as a Vienna can be, and the finish is a bit odd... OVERALL: thanks to Matt for the purchase this past week...my first Hop City offering is solid but uneven... drinkable, but not without the astringent, dry, band-aid ending...the second glass furthers the first in its dough and malt... I am hesitant to give this the blessing of another six-pack...

Tør i smagen og lidt gær i lugten. Ikke specielt humlet men er alligevel tæt i smagen.

hellonearth (77) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
Nez de noisettes fraîches. Robe brune dorée avec une bonne mousse épaisse. Goût discret de noix et de caramel. En finale, une pointe amère. Légèrement onctueuse et très fraîche à la fois. Bien agréable!

Cybercat (4162) - Georgia, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Pours clear coppery amber with a thick, though effervescent, pale buff head. Aroma is crisp, malty, a little fruity - mostly pear plus a little apple. Flavor has a strong malty tone supported by a pear note and hints of hops. Is that a snippet of caramel? Texture has decent body and fairly lively fizz. Get squirrelly!

maley1 (899) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
Clear amber pour with small white head. Aroma of malts, grains and faint hops. Taste of slight caramel, malts, grains and slight hops. Light bodied, medium fizzy carbonation, not all that much flavour, underwhelming.
