Beautiful, beautiful color. Pretty tight white head. Thirst quenching, plenty of hops, though the palate was somewhat dissapointing. Still a good beer though, Rouge is my favorite, i haven;t had a beer from the brewery that wasn’t awsome.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Darkish yellow with a faint hint of orange in the hue, absolutely beautiful creamy head. Aroma was of grassy hops. Flavor matched, grassy with a bit of an herbal note. Not my favorite hop profile necessarily, but not bad. Quite full bodied. Decent.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Dark yellow color with a large head that quickly melted away. Good aroma of honey and something that I could only describe as cantelope. A surprise in any beer, let alone a pale lager! Taste was more honey laden with a clean grain base. Dry finish. Not loaded with hops. I was very surprised and liked this one a lot more than I thought I would.

Notable citrus character to the strong floral, lightly spicy, hop nose with some underlying cereal malts. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a decent and lasting cover of fine bubbled white head that leaves some lacing on the sides of the glass. Pleasant fruity tones to the cereal malt flavour with distinctive, crisp bitterness and a lasting sweetness in the aftertaste. Refreshingly light bodied with strong, lively carbonation the engages the tongue and opens the tastebuds. Lager glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle (Julio’s Liquors, MA, Feb-05).

Pours clear straw color with rather fizzy small white head. Nose is faint straw, wheatgrass, lemony, rose of sharon. Flavor is a premium lager revelation. Mildly sweet, slightly bitter, good dough-like malts and floral flavors, no astringency or off flavors. Clean, bitter finish with slightly bitter aftertaste. Can’t believe it comes up to 25 IBUs. Great summer beer, great lager.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Spicy and grassy hop nose. Medium foamy head, with some stamina. Yellow gold color, with slight orange hue. Honey and light toffee sweetness, with a solid bitterness for great balance. Great carbonation, light to medium body with a crisp finish. Interesting Lager, has many ale-like qualities, almost a Kolsch in reverse? Really enjoyed this beer.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - JUL 12, 2008
Thin white top on an active golden body.(Czech.pils yeast...wow no Pacman) Mild, carbonated lager with a light sweet/tangy finish. Good.

I cannot get over this beer. This is my favorite lager. Period. Has occasionally trumped darker ales.

I think this would be a very good summer beer. It poors a nice golden color and it has a nice apple hint at the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2011 Aroma: Sweet caramel and bread maltiness with hints of floral hops. Appearance: Hazy Gold with a frothy white head Taste: Medium sweetness with light bitter finish. Palate: Medium body with a creamy texture, lively carbonation and long finish. Overall: Meh...it’s a good enough beer, but nothing outstanding. Certainly drinkable, with a few hoppy suprises on the way, but nothing exceptional I’d seek out or stock on a regular basis.
