JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, - JUN 26, 2013
Very pale straw coloured pour. The nose is slightly grainy and a little bit fruity. A touch of soft wheat as well. Fairly clean tasting with a bit of light bitterness as well. Some lingering grassiness. Simple and pleasant.

Johnsense (1418) - - JUL 22, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Blonde pour, smaller head. Faint hopping in the aroma, grainy, light bread. A bit more citrus punch in the taste, grains, wheat, bready, grassy. Lighter body, very refreshing. OK for what it is but this suggests Amsterdam may have the potential for a full-on hoppy lager..

Metalchopz (3135) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a hazy golden colour with fluffy warm head, bubbling away, leaving some foamy lace. Seems a little infected, as some very mild sour notes. Wheat flavours with some decent yeast in the finish. Some light hops lingers with hints of rusty water. I enjoyed this one when it was named "416 Urban Wheat", but not sure about this one now. Seems like they changed the recipe. Maybe cheaper ingredients.

Such a beautiful facility, such disappointing beer. Taste is overly hoppy for a lager and pungence is borderline offensive

Eructoblaster (3945) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
On tap at Local Public Eatery (Ottawa, ON). Blond body with a thin, lasting, white creamy head. Light malty/hoppy aroma with herbal hints. Its thin malty/hoppy taste carries grainy and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Drinkable.

jkwood04 (5322) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 14, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours transparent golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, and some light toast/bread. Average to lighter texture. Good for the style. Hoppier than Natural Blond from this brewery.

There is a sharpness of grass that I find overpowering. Its almost metallic and has this grassy aftertaste like Im drinking a farmers field. Is it made from grass? I just taste grass.
