COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remarkably smooth for a full-flavoured beer. Our founder’s intention was to combine the refreshing taste of a German lager with the distinctive taste of an English Ale without blending the two.

Ktwse (3745) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Pours clear pale golden with a finger of white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste is bready, malty sweet. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.

Can from Beers of Europe. Gold with a white head and a lot of fizz. Looks like a macro lager if I’m honest. There’s a brief moment of brightness up front - a little twist of lemon and a bit of vanilla- but it all too quickly descends into fizzy, metallic sweetcorn juice. There’s a tiny hint of grassy hop in the background, but not enough to distract from what is a pretty dreadful beer.

UXO (1353) - CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
Appearance: clear straw with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: biscuity malt, corn adjunct, faded grassy hops. (4/10) Taste: mild sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, medium duration slightly astringent and metallic finish. (2/5) Mostly inoffensive - although the finish actually is, a little. Really, just your basic pale domestic lager, with only the faintest of nods to the cream ale style. (4/10)

slowrunner77 (9421) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 1, 2015
the slight creaminess prevents the score from being in the 1’s, but this is pretty much a fail from start to finish (which I did not).

zacgillbanks (4156) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2015
Can from Rehills, Newcastle. Pale golden in colour with a thin white head. It has a malty and slight grassy flavour with a delicate creaminess on the bitter-sweet fruity finish.

egajdzis (5952) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Amber color with a small, quickly dissipating head, no lacing. Aroma of toast, sweet cereal grains. Taste of much of the same. Nothing offensive, but nothing to write home about.

Yamato (39) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 3, 2015
Golden color. White head disappears quickly. Hoppy, no special aroma. Gentle smoothness. Watery. Light body. Little taste. Is this ale? Filling. Not again.

RickTheRick (892) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
D’un doré étincelant, la bière supporte une mousse moyennement épaisse qui ne disparaît pas rapidement. Céréales sucrées. Insipidité. Pas crémeuse du tout. Très bonne avec du Clamato. Non. Pas vraiment plus dans le fond.

AlainG (1825) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
Pratiquement de la même couleur que ses consœurs. Un nez de malt et de sirop quelconque. Un goût de malt, alors qu’une effervescence passe au travers une texture soyeuse. On a l’impression qu’elles toutes du même brassin, avec une étiquette différente. (1308-241014)
