COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imported Saaz hops contribute a delicate aroma to this delightful beer. Light in colour yet complex in flavour, Grand Lager was developed to be the perfect beer for a warm summer day. An excellent compliment is spicy foods

(can) clear yellow colour with medium white head; floral aromas; simple balanced flavour, not bad but not much above macrobrew lager

Can from trade with Boutip. First aromas are of corn and barley. Second wave is better, some grass, light corn, some apple. Overall average. Color is straw yellow, thin white head. Taste is standard lager. Better than some, worse than others. Lots of dry wheat, light malt, some apple core. More of a bitter finish than most, hence the dry hopping. Body is surprisingly not watery, and carbonation is right where it should be.

SlovakSniper (3046) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 1, 2010
Canette. Le liquide est doré pâle avec un semblant de mousse. Les arômes et les saveurs du malt et des houblons sont très peu impressionnants. En bouche, le corps est léger avec une effervescence normale et une texture crémeuse. En finale, très faible dose de notes amères.

Frothmeister (546) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2010
473ml can. Pours a clear gold with an off-white head. Aroma is wet straw, faint caramel, grassy, apple. Smells quite a bit like a predictable Euro-lager. Taste is almost all malt with slight sweetness, and a bitter citrus finish. Was expecting a little more kick considering it’s "dry hopped". Not bad, but not worth the price.

Can from LCBO. I would be careful calling your beer "grand" unless it is. Sure its named after the river, but i live near the river and I know that it ain’t. The date code was fresh, but the aroma was "off" and a little sour. there was a little more body in this then I had expected. The balance of sweet and hops was off. A decent hot weather ultra-cool guzzeler, but not all that.. well.... grand.

Appearance of a normal lager, a bit more flavour then other lagers tasted, overall decent beer and I would try again

Nice head and good retention for a lager. Regular OK quality malts, boring hops but the dry-hopping helps to enjoy a bit more the beer... Taste of boiled veggies.

Clear golden pour, very small head. Decent malts, hops are pretty dull, but you can taste them. As far as pale lagers go this aint hAlf bad!

MiP (13529) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle, 4.0% as Trafalgar Grand Lager. Vinous and mildly grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour has a good maltiness, distinct paper and vegetable notes. Not as bad as it sounds, though.
