Poured from a tall can into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very clear light gold color with a good-sized foamy white head that had average retention, but fairly good cling and lacing. Its aroma was a blend of straw and grassy hops, with some lighter floral and citrus tones, and a bit of grain. The taste had a light straw-grainy bitterness with bits of herb and grass, and light touches of sour grain. Its body had a crisp, lively feel with medium-high carbonation and fizz, and was fairly dry with a fairly full mouthfeel. Thanks for sharing, Dad.

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 doesn’t 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 DON’T 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!!

AlainG (1286) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 1, 2014
Elle est dorée et limpide et une mousse sublime la recouvre. Un nez de céréales, herbacé, floral avec des traces de miel. Un goût de mal, d’herbes, de poivre avec des pointes minérales. Une bière ordinaire qui n’a pas vraiment de défauts, à part celui de ne pas avoir de qualités. M.A. 28-05-15 (1189-150814)

Pours a clear straw colour, with a pillowy white head. Aroma includes notes of corn, straw, light malts, caramel, and some floral notes. Tasting notes include light cracker malts, dough, and a slick palate. Not a bad Pale Ale, better than most!

Freaky_tiki (579) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Pours yellow with a pretty one finger cap. And that’s about as good as it gets. Flavour is typical easy rock smooth jazz euro watery corn flavoured beer. The finish is brutal, leaving a taste that falls somewhere between old pennies & blood in mouth. Crap. If you have one in your fridge, save it for your lazy ass brother in law on his next visit.

Pours a clear golden with one finger of white head. Floral biscuity skunky aroma.Metallic taste. Medium body and smooth finish. Moderate carbonation. Nice spider web looking lacing clinging to the side of the glass.

RobertDale (3550) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2014
500 ml. can. Pours a pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of grain, malt, and grass. Taste is the same with some metallic coming through. Nothing bad, but very plain.

degbert (1148) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Can. Pours a very nice gold with a high, fine-grained, pillowy, lacy head. Nose is bread, apple, a touch of metal. Mildly sweet on the tongue, with just a touch of roastiness and a bit of a fennel or anise-like herbal note. Finish is clean. Pretty tasty for just plain drinkin’ beer.

shorlin (661) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JAN 23, 2014
Colour is a rich gold with a rocky white head. Actually kind of nice looking. No lace though - foam slides like soap. Aroma is a little grainy. Taste is metallic with a strange emptiness. Not good.
