COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, well-balanced pilsner style lager. Its extra body gives it extra smoothness with only a fleeting, pleasant after-bitterness.

A pretty good beer overall. I’ve never been a fan of Sleeman Products but I must say this beer is pretty good. Best served cold, refreshing on a hot day. Goes down smooth with a bit of a metallic aftertaste. Pale with very little head.

Vraiment ordinaire. Un gout de fleur alors que j aime le houblon, elle n a pas darrier gout, c est bien.

Dorée et claire, faible mousse blanche pleinement diminuante, dégagement gazeux actif lors du service. Aromes végétaux et de timide houblon floral. Flaveur de maïs se terminant par une imposante présence savonneuse. Moyennement effervescente en bouche, texture plutôt aqueuse, corps passablement mince.

Not bad, definitely better on the cold side. I really enjoyed my first sip, but the beer seemed to get worse instead of better as it warmed. Some offensive characteristics came out as are usually associated with pale lagers such as a sour corn malt taste, as well as a lack of hop movement. This beer looks good, nice golden colour and a head which really lasts and I love the clear bottle (although I’m sure that will lead to some skunkiness in cases), but I don’t think I will buy this one again.

Pours pale gold with virtually nothing for a head. Of all the Sleeman products this is the cleanest and most refreshing. I don’t remember ever having one that had skunked out. Not as sweet and has somewhat more hop balance than the usual suspects.

341ml clear bottle. Pale gold in colour, actually managed to hold onto a head for quite some time. Dryish aroma, light grassy hop. Pretty light in body, bordering on fizzy. Malty/grainy flavours, trace bitterness in the finish.

For a pale lager, this one is very good. A clean simple finish, I would be glad to offer to any guest.

Stenchy, skunk laden aroma with some mustiness. Pours a golden yellow, thin head. Harsh aftertaste. Corn flavour. Another putrid offering from Sleeman. Thank god Unibroue is there to balance out the products.

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 11, 2004
Purchased in a Sleeman sampler for a Thurs chat night. Pours with a thin white head and a medium gold with few carbonation bubbles. Aroma of earthy hops and some rotten grass clippings. The flavor is a slightly minty with some strange wheat. Alost has that playful saaz hops chracter. The flavors are muted with soapy aftertaste.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2004
Golden amber, with a white head. Weak on the malt. There is a soapiness about it. A slight degree of crispness. Medium lingering on the palate. Lively carbonisation. saaz hopping?
