Not too impressed with this one. Too much malt sweetness compared to hop bitterness. not much going on aroma wise . Pretty crappy stuff.

Deep clear copper, frothy off white head slowly fades. Faint sweet malt aroma. Taste is grassy thin bitter hops and light caramel malts. Lively carbonation, light bodied and a bit waterey. Light bitter finish. Mundane.... Remember Lagerboy? wink, nudge 8)

Comme son style l’indique, elle est ambré et sa mousse est éphémère. elle sent le malt et le caramel et l’inox. Ça goûte le malt, le caramel et c’est quelque peu herbacé. C,est aussi aqueux et plutôt insipide. On ne s’en souviendra pas (814-180913)

355ml can. Cloudy ruby/amber. Straw, mud, caramel malts. Not too sweet, lightly bitter on the finish. Light to medium-bodied, mildly carbonated. Mellow and a bit creamy. Call it a camping beer.

330 ml bottle. Pours a light clear amber with a moderate white head. Aromas are fresh peas/lentils, Taste is a little coffee bitterness and fresh legume. Surprisingly light body, good carbonation and a light bitter finish. Unique beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

vadie (1253) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
Couleur ambrée avec une petite mousse blanche/beige. L’arôme légèr de malt , comme c’etait entre une bonne bière et une bière bon marché. Le goût est de malt avec un peu de caramel. Un goût faible d’houblon en finale. De bout à l’autre c’est un peu légèr mais assez bonne quand même.

Bottle to Unibroue tulip glass.

Appearance: Transparent burnt amber with a fluffy white mousse like head.

Aroma: Slight burnt caramel, biscuit, some resin in there too.

Taste: Not bad...caramel, toffee, some corn. A hint of grass and citrus. A hint of corn...

Palate: Pretty smooth, but it has a slight "cheap beer" feel to it because of the corn taste. There’s also a slight astringency that you would find in a cheap lager as well...

Overall: A simple, cheap beer that gets the job done without being shitty. Not outstanding by any means...just like the government.

Bottle. Aroma of roasted malts. A bit watery for my liking, but not horrible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
