Translucent orange with small off-white head. Nice malty aroma. Flavor is a good mix of malts and hops with the malts giving it a nice smoothness.

12oz bottle from BOTW. Pour is a nice golden color with a thin white of cream. Aroma is clean, with some nice toasty maltiness and just a touch of cleansing european hops. The flavor is much the same, the malts are the body of this beer, but they are effortlessly drinkable and not overly sweet or sticky at all. The dry grassy hops are just there in the finish and add a little character and finish. A really nice little lager.

There is a bitter flavor to it... dark piss color to the beer. Nothing special, but grows on you after time.

beerbill (3565) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 26, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold that eventually becomes mostly clear with a thin white head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. Mild aroma of malt with some slight breadiness. The flavor is malt, bread and mixed fruit (mostly pears and apples). Fairly smooth mouthfeel. Slight bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. No problems here.

A very nice lager/dortmunder. Just tapped the keg at my local watering hole and this stuff was really, really good. Hide the 6 percent alcohol extremely well. Extremely drinkable. Great summer/session brew. Nice work.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy off white head. Smells of mollasses and corn. Tastes very malty, flavors of corn, toffee, and a little peppery. Aftertaste is sweet and thick.

Poured golden from a 12oz bottle. A nice white head was present. Aroma was that of dough and a little something on the sweet side. Taste was similar but with a added citrus touch. Body was medium, which works well for this beer. Overall a good summer drinking beer.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2010
Clear shining golden lager with sparse bubbles and a lasting white crown. Charming pale malt aroma includes delicious fresh bread notes accompanied by juicy honeyed fruitiness soft toastiness and a touch of... cream soda? Just a tad of aromatic hops bring soapy/shaving cream not unpleasant intricacies. Remarkably drinkable, while a minute note of alcohol can be caught in the finish, that’s a 12oz I feel like drinking in less than 5 minutes. I most likely would if I were not rating it! In mouth, its fruity character for a lager seemingly fit the ample pale malt character and the lemony hop finish balances out the finish and remove any impression of thickness. An excellent malt-forward lager in bottled form, at less than 2$ a bottle. Definitely worth a try, hopefully you stumble upon a fresh one.
