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

Decent blend of malt and hops. More substantial than the typical lager, which is admittedly not saying much.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a copper to amber with off white head. Hints of toffee and caramel malts. Lacking in the taste department. Was a gift from a friend at a tasting party. Neat name but not sure I would buy

It has a nice hippy taste at the end. It is not heavy. It is very enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark burnt orange amber with a medium lasting beige head. Aroma and Taste of toasted malt and grains, grass, yeast and fruity notes mild hops bitterness. A medium body with moderate carbonation on the palate. Finishes with a nice toasted malt grains flavor, fruity with mild bitterness, some nutty lingering flavors on the end. A fairly good tasting and refreshing brew.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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
