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.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
Faint hazy dark straw color with lots of activity. Slightly frothy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, but producing very good amounts of lacing. Flavors of fresh barley, caramel, buttery floral and herbal hops. Highly sugary, a little syrupy, with roasted spiciness. Smooth medium body with crispy carbonation. Light finish, lingering caramel sweetness and grassy hoppy notes. Overall good quality craft. Inviting smell, decent flavors, nicely balanced and accessible. Feels like a quality malty pilsner. Although a little thin, flat, and lacking some freshness.

cmacklin (882) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear golden with a small white head that laces. Sweet aroma of bready malt and grain. Sweet flavour of biscuity malt, corn and a light grassy bitterness in a crisp finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation.

adamnowek (1882) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2016
Very strong character full of grass and biscuits. Slightly corny aftertaste. Sweet finish.

Raistlin (315) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
It pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out light herbal notes, grassy notes and crisp biscuity malt. Nothing special, drinkable.

samzim (390) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2016
Grassy aroma with faint malt notes. Clear gold colour. Clean front with sweet bready middle and short bitter finish. Light body with lively carbonation. Fine for casual and thoughtless drinking.

The beer pours a translucent pale gold colour with a half inch snow white head. The aroma is grains, weak hops, and some funk. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour is similar to the aroma, malt forward with a hint of hops in the finish.

Pours light golden with a small white head. Grassy aroma. Grassy, biscuit taste. Not a bad beer but kinda plain.

This is rather terrible. Good for post grass cutting beer, shower beer, or dressing room beer. Best drunk cold and drunk quickly. Ughh

pumpkinhead2 (848) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Bière jaune pâle aux reflets un peu verdâtres, parfaitement limpide, bonne effervescence belle et uniforme, et surmontée d’un col blanc immaculé plutôt étroit mais tout de même mousseux, collant et persistant. Arômes de pain frais et malt pâle, léger grain, sucre brut et soupçon de citron. Effluves qui peuvent également faire penser par moment à la présence d’un houblon plutôt végétal, gazon et feuille verte. Nez ordinaire, complexité et intensité faibles. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, onctuosité tout de même intéressante, on note une belle rondeur, un moelleux et velouté fort intéressant pour le style. Au goût, pain frais, malt pâle et sucre brut (ça goûte le pain sucré…) avec notes de citron, gazon et feuille verte. Bon goût mais sans plus, complexité faible, intensité correcte en bouche. Bière correcte qui se compare sans complexe aux autres bonnes lagers pâles offertes sur le marché québécois…

KoNrRiI (1229) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2015
0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of hops, pale malts, and hay. Taste is sweet, malty and features DMS. Light body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is DMS-y as well. Overall not much to talk about, a bit better lager.
