The decree states that only four ingredients can be used when making beer: barley, hops, yeast and water. The result is a lager with a crisp finish and a rich golden colour.

Gerbeer (2357) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
On tap. Pours a clear gold with light head. Light aromas of cereal. Flavors of bready grain and corn sugar. Easy to drink and not offensive but no character.

YigSvartka (219) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
Transparent white/gold hue with an immediately dissipating white head. Corn, malt, honey, and slightly metallic aroma. Thin bodied. Surprisingly not terrible tasting. An extremely smooth combination of corn, malt, honey, and yeast finishes with a wee bit of hop. Certainly better than most macros.

On tap at the new Jack Astor’s Lansdowne location (nice venue). I know it’s brewed to the Bavarian Purity Law standards, but in 2015, this comes across as a really old school beer. Both the aromas and tastes are all breads, cereals, grains and malts. Almost zero hop profile. It drank easy enough while watching an important hockey game in a bar, but I wouldn’t go out and buy this if it was at the LCBO.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
341 ml bottle from a twelve-pack sampler from Sobeys Liquor, served in a shaker pint glass. Pours a faintly hazy straw yellow with low carbonation and an eggshell-colored head, leaving vertical oval lace spots. Aroma is of clean cereal grains and malt, faintly sweet, a touch metallic, with noticeable vegetal/tomato that gets a bit stronger with time, and grassy hops. Flavor is a bit more vegetal than what I prefer and has an initial metallic tang, but it settles back fairly quickly, and is clean and inoffensive otherwise. Thin and a bit slick; the finish is okay and appropriate for a lager. It’s a notch above most lagers; while it has a few aroma and flavor quirks, none are harsh enough to be deal-breakers. It started off questionably, but ended friendly enough. Good times.

Sweet aroma, pale color, too light tasting for aroma. Slightly bitter palette. Overall just an average beer. Not outstandingly Bavarian.

RickTheRick (635) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
Dorée et limpide, une mousse blanche assez gênée se pose sur le dessus de la bière. Le nez de céréales et d’houblons floraux loin d’être explosifs n’est pas très marquant, tout comme les saveurs de cette bière. Facile à boire, mais rien d’extraordinaire. Du foin liquide, carrément.
