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.

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

Dacrza (652) - 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.

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 (4089) - 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.

Atom (1821) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 7, 2015
12oz bottle pours a clear dark Amber with a medium khaki head. Nutty caramel aroma. Dark caramel malts, a pleasant balanced earthy roasted, slightly nutty with a mild bitterness on the finish. Very pleasant.

cdntraveller (6) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 21, 2015 does not count
This is a beautiful beer... Dark roasted malty smell, with a thick and crisp amber taste... More of a dark brown than an amber look... by far one of the best Amber Lager available

I see why this beer has a Monde Selection to its name. I was expecting something with more hops, but this is a nice balance. Not overpowering like an IPA. Very refreshing. Quality ingredients in the quality brew. Will buy again. MB

Helsdon (302) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Clear, clear amber beer. The thought of white head. And I smell ... uh... nothing. Dripped my nose to get a hint of malt and syrup. Taste is sweet thin roasted malt. Mild mild bitter after. Junk.

Fisler (241) - Bamberg, GERMANY - APR 14, 2015
Schön dunkel bernsteinfarben im Glas. In der Nase malzig, Karamell. Im Trunk Malz, süß, süffig, aber auch ganz leicht metallisch. Trotzdem ein ordentliches Lager. Im Abgang Holz.
