COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised
A full-bodied lager with lots of malt and hop character. A touch hoppier than many lagers yet perfectly balanced with lots of fruity hop character and fragrance.

Clear yellow pour, a touch orange. Basically no head. Aroma is pretty skunky and doughy. Flavor is crisp and pretty clean. I just never like this malt flavor in such light beers. Whether there’s corn in there or not, that’s all I taste. Other than the skunk, which I can’t really blame the brewer for in this case, there’s no real off flavors. I guess this is about as cleanly as you can pull the style off. Even so, maybe it could offer something more than this. Just a slight wash of hops in the back for balance, just enough to clean the malt off the tongue in the finish, but not enough to really enjoy. I don’t care for the style, but I think it can still be done better than this.

Aroma: grains, cereal, bread malts. Appearance: clear gold, medium frothy white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: malty sweets again, but indeed, notes of floral hops. Overall: actually quite a nice Lager, very nice aroma and palate for this style. Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Kensington.

Smooth and tasty lager from England. Serve chilled, not cold. One of the nicer lagers out there.

Poured a pale straw color with a tall, foamy head. The head disapated quickly and left a bit of lacing. Citrusy aroma from the mug I poured it into. Pleasant taste -- malty with a crisp, wheaty finish. Excellent palette ... creamy and smooth. I would stock up on this one if it wasn’t quite expensive ($4+ for a 550 ml bottle).

Thick 1.5" white head, low-moderate lacing. Strong hops aroma -mostly fruity, and low-moderate malt. Clear, pale golden color. Nice balance of sweetness of malt but with lager flavor, low heat and style of hops. Good body, finishes very clean. I enjoyed the little extra malt sweetness and body with the flavor and easy lightness of pale lager. Would like stronger hops aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (4105) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
pours clear bright yellow with a small white head, some retention and lacing. crisp pale fresh cereals, grainy maltiness, faint fruitiness - lagering notes indeed thoughtouch of corn maybe, dry herbal-grassy notes, hint of sulfur, chalk, faint lemons. moderate carbonation, light body - not watery, dry and a bit bland herbal-grassy finish. linear but quenching. enjoyed with my dinner.

MunBro (222) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours light gold color. Head dissipated as fast as it poured, all fizz with no lace. Almost no scent, and almost no taste. This might be the weakest, most flavorless beer I’ve had. Tastes of hops, some floral notes but extremely weak and watery tasting. A disappointing beer.

Bottled: unk Pours a light straw color with a solid sheet of white foam. Brilliant clarity. Standard grainy, slightly fruity nose with a hint of corn. Flavor is clean and subtle with straw, a bit of soil and some lemon. Light bodied with soft carb and an off dry finish. Nice beer. Serving type: bottle 12-09-2012
