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.

Scent of hops and yeast. Clear gold colour. Abrupt bitterness without much discernible flavour. Medium body with mild carbonation. Not my sort of beer.

355ml can shared with jeevan, cheers (I think!) Pours clear gold, thin white head. Grain and metal aromas. Taste is lager-like, more metal, astringent finish. Not great.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2059) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2014
Can from Marche 54. A pale cream with a big fluffy head of foam that leaves great lacing. Cream and light biscuit and fruity sweet. The beer has a medium body and a malty  sweet flavor with some cream soda notes. A solid light beer.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
English hop aromas, some DMS and some white bread dough. Taste is muted. Grainy with some grassiness from the hops and finishes balanced. Golden colour with a quickly dissipated head. Not worth revisiting.

Hidden_Pooch (315) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Blah. Aroma is of grain skunk. Tastes much the same with some sweet hay and noticeable skunk flavour. Very light sweet body. This is a bad beer.

cfrancis (2358) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Pours light straw yellow with a small white top. Aroma is light skunk, light grain and some noble hop. Taste is slightly smooth, oxidation, and some noble hop.

Tricker (280) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Bière blonde de 5 %. Odorat amer et sucré. Aucun col au versement. Petit goût sucré, avec une finale crémeuse en bouche. Également, il y a une amertume présente, mais elle s’estompe vite, remplacé par une finale de torréfaction. Pas d’épice particulière, petit soupçon de toffee. Excellente !

Funny how I always seem to not bother to rate with meh to crappy beers. But with this I’ll try to fix that. Pours golden with white head that dissipates rather quickly. Smells of malts and grains. Tastes of malts, a little bitterness, not a lot else. It’s beer, and you could drink it by the bucket, but really why would you want to. Rating: Meh.
