Beardbeerman (237) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
Pours a clear golden topped by a finger or so of fizzy off-white head showing moderate retention and leaving nice lacing. The nose is grainy, doughy and fruity with apples and pears. Some sweetness too. The taste starts with a sweet and fruity malty attack with apples and some white bread. The mild hops come along with a faint grassy element pushing the fresh malts down the palate through a very mellow finish. As far as the style goes, this brew pretty much nails it. Sure it feels aqueous and itís not complex but in the end, I would have one of these on a hot summer day while the coals heat up for dinner. Cheers!

Can. Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a smallish white head on there. Nose has stale corn and grains and seems like itís going bad. Taste isnít much better, as itís a bit cloyingly sweet and almost sticky. Not a good one.

gregorymconway (218) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
Real doughy nose, with some golden apple on it as well. Bready. Crisp, with a little soapiness present. The sweetness that is characteristic of pilseners from this area is present. Nice clean sessionable. Not one of my favorite styles, but quite enjoyable.

Kinz (3459) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Richmond 21st. Clear yellow, slight head. Aroma was skunky, from a can???, light honey malts, faint floral hops. Flavor matches, sweeter than expected. So-so.

jackl (5467) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Bottle pour @ the 21st Richmond Gathering. Light gold with a small head. Nose is junk white bread. Party beads. Taste is similar. Junky plastic and bread. Nasty. Light body, soft carb. Unpleasant.

Can @ RG 21. Pale yellow. Metallic aroma with a hint of cereal and citricness. Metallic flavor, too. A tad sweet/sour.

God DAMMIT I hate this site. All these retarded hipster fuckwads and their fucking shit-tarded Hipsterish bullshit! WTF EVERY SINGLE BEER WITH FIVE STARS IS A FUCKING RUSSIAN IMPERIAL STOUT?!? wHAT THE FLYING FUCK. try a Fucking LAGER, you FUCKS!!!!! This beer is EXCELLENT. It was brewed cold (it was "lagered") and is crisp, quaffing, and clean, with almost no off-flavors. The head laces up wonderfully. I seriously hate this retarded fucking website that doesnít appreciate anything other than trendy-stupid American hipster-BULLSHIT ale. For FUCK sake the Germans and Belgians figured out how to brew a perfect BEER a long time ago, and now all these lamewad San Francisco butt-children with stupid beards and retarded shackets have to go creating some fucktarded rating system that makes a GREAT lager into a "19". HEY RATE BEER RETARDS, YOU FUCKWADS DONíT KNOW JACK FUCKING SHIT ABOUT BEER, GO FUCK YOURSELVES AND DIE IN A HOLE ALONE, YOU FUCKS!!!

The appearance was great - it really look inviting and "correct" But the odor was not good - I got corn husks and yeast. Then the taste was too mild - a quaffing bear as one reviewer put it. The after is also still corn husks in my mouth - need another beer to rinse with. Will not buy again. BUT I read a lot of reviews and get the impression this beer is "variable" Mine was a 50cl can I got at E-mart in Korea dated "5/12/14" which in Korea reads December 5th but I fear it meant May 12th and this is Sept-26th!!
