Dark, golden and clear amber body, not too carbonated with slight bubbly head that quickly dissipates. Too easy on the nose. Aroma is very pleasant yet not enough of it... Sweet bready malt, subdued hops, the kind they use in eastern european beers. Flavour, like aroma, is great but too little of it. Could use a gain boost. Very smooth and pleasant mouthfeel. Great beer despite the lowish rating. Itís a 2.7 with 3.7 potential.

wedgie9 (1884) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Tasted on 2/2/11 from a 330mL bottle purchased at Cost Plus as a part of the Beers of the World box. Pours clear deep orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to spotty lace, leaving lacing on the inside of the glass. The nose is somewhat nutty with sweet corn malt, and earthy yeast. The flavor is sweet corn with a somewhat sharp bitterness and a bit of earth. The body is light with very lively carbonation and a short sweet corn and nutty finish.

cfrancis (2324) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2010
Pours a golden amber with a white head and good lacing. Aroma is malt and a mild skunkiness. Taste is very malty although itís very soft on the palate. I was expecting a little more flavouring from this.

brenn79 (1504) - Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 29, 2010 11.2 oz. bottle- Pours pale golden with a nice white pillow white head and tons of carbonation bubbles, itís pretty cool looking. The aroma is pretty standard, it has a nice bouquet aroma with some very mild hops, not bad. The flavor is malt, a little grainy, but much better than expected. The clear bottle led me to believe it was going to be skunky, but its not, just a real good sessionable brew.

Bottle - Gold. White head. Sweet, bready,. Medium body and carbonation. Some bitterness. Refreshing.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle. 5%. Clear golden pour with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet malts and grasses. Taste is sweet malts, quite creamy and frothy, but well carbonated. Hint of hops, but otherwise quite bland

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 23, 2010
Bottle. Clear golden amber pour with a large, fluffy white head that lasts a while. Aroma is fairly subdued but has hints of pine, honey, lemon and caramel. Flavour mirrors the aroma with a substantial amount of hoppy bitterness. Light, watery mouthfeel with high carbonation and a lingering dry, bitter finish. Not bad overall for a run of the mill lager but would probably be better without the clear bottle.

gilvanblight (772) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2010
Lots of head. Tons of lacing. Very hoppy scent. Somewhat skunky. Watery. Flavour is all in the finish. Bitter aftertaste. Just not that great though I canít place anything particularly horrible about it.

330 ml clear bottle purchased from the LCBO by my mother to serve at easter dinner. pours clear golden, average white head. aroma if fruity and buttery. doesnt smell like a lager. the flavour is equally fruit forward with butter, corn and bittering hops. the finish is quite bitter. really more of a cream ale then anything and not even a good cream ale. poor.
