341 ml bottle with screw crown cap bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear amber colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation; Quite pungent aroma of Lager malt, with strong caramel, grains, very light cardboard, strong floral, sugar, bread, light lemon and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of fair Amber malt, with barley grains, caramel, floral, molasses, light bread, lemon, Close to medium bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body. Quite Slick palate; Mouth Feel is fair maltyness in a fairly thin but slick background. Strong Amber characters with fairly Bock-ish, strong caramel and grains. Strong floral and notable but restrained sweetness. Good lemon to round. Pretty good!... Hoppiness is strong floral, light lemon and light grass in nose, and strong er in taste; Bitterness is medium for a lasting, astringent sweet-bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste. Floral, sweet and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: The caramel element is strong and quite pleasing in its aroma, as well as the standout Amber Bock-ish taste. Maybe it’s trying too hard to be a Czech Lager (Polotmavý maybe?), its body is thin and there’s less than impressive grainy taste. Okay to enjoy if I don’t have to pay for the imported price, that is.
Jaune-cuivre avec une petite mousse. Arômes discrets de céréales. Au goût, pain, céréales (avoine, riz), miel et un soupçon d’amertume. Bien effervescente. Très quelconque, en fait. À la première gorgée, cependant, drôle de sentiment : souvenirs des quelques lapées de O’Keefe à mon père que je prenais du bout des lèvres à 8 ans... Ce qui vient étiqueter cette bière au fer rouge avec les lettres ’old school’... alex_leit (4120) - Minsk, BELARUS - APR 4, 2016

0.473 tap. Clear, brown color with a reddish tinge and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, a touch of maple, yeasts, and a bit of skunky fragrances. Taste is delicate abd malty sweet. Light body, slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is very much like maple syrup, kudos for the quality. Overall not a bad beer, nice maple touch. jksipa (945) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2015
Clear medium amber with a two finger off white head. Light caramel and grain nose with some soapy floral notes. Light+ sweet honey with very light bitterness. Medium- watery mouth with average carbonation. Kauge (1958) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2016 Tap at the Rex in Toronto. Darkish amber with small white head. Malty, somewhat buttery nose. Pretty nutty too I’d say. Flavour... well, no corners there, it’s a very rounded one, with some sweetness and a little hoppy character. Yet the finish lacks any bitterness. A restrained, easy-going lager. I kinda like it.
Had a bottle at a friend’s house half a year later: perfectly alright for a lager, would happily have this in a random (i.e. not craft oriented) bar instead of some soapy and watery macro IPA.
