the sauger (118) - La Pocatiere, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2017
Canette de 500 ml. Couleur cuivre avec un grand col crème. Arôme de céréales et de noix brûlées. Goût de malt, de céréales grillées et de houblon subtil. Bonne pale lager venue tout droit d'Irelande!

Raistlin (476) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2017
Pours dark copper with medium white head. It leaves bit of lacing behind. Crisp yet medium textured. Above average carbonation, but not overwhelming. Leaves low bitter but plesant after taste that lingers. Really enjoyable.

Far too bitter and heavy for me. Makes my stomach curdle. Maybe good for a ale drinker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bosskie (951) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2017
Dark copper colour, very small head, crystal clear.
Smell is toffee and apples, some caramel, flowers.
Taste is bitter watery and quite clear. Smooth refreshing finish with elegant astringency. Earthy, biscuits.

kraddel (9182) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2017
sampled at Horecabeurs 2017, where I was refused to be served this beer in a glass ( any self respect they might have had, has currently left the building... HOW do you want people to respect your brand, if you raise them chugging bottles? I did not agree and demanded to pour it myself. i'm OK with respecting a brewers wish about how to drink the beer, but not when it's complete nonsense and even harmfull for its own quality. Very pathetic idea's here. I hope most people visiting this booth felt the same way, and the Belgian standards wont decline even further, now telling people you HAVE to drink beer from the bottle.... Sigh ) Pours clear, but darker blonde. Small white head. Smell is faded hops, bit medicinal. Very chemical. Taste is very grainy, but not natural, strong sweetness. Metallic maltyness. Prety medicinal overall. Boring, the only thing that sets this brew appart from other pale lagers is an even bigger lack of quality. Perhaps this beer would have been awesome if chugged from a nearly frozen bottle ?

Maakun (6547) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2017
Bottle shared at home. Clear darker golden with short lasting white head. Sweet malts, apple, light dry grains, caramel, honey. About medium sweet and under medium bitter. About medium bodied. Quite malty lager, not bad.

Ferris (16726) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2017
Can - Light citrus hops. Clear gold with a decent white head. Fruity and light sweetness, more like a blond.

2.1
Metalchopz (3596) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2017
Pours a clean light golden-amber colour with a creamy warm cap, good retention and some thick lacing. Loads of diacetyl in the aromas which makes me stomach churn. Sweet, rich butterscotch. The taste has this, but some hops do make this a little more pleasurable. Light dryness for mouthfeel. Yeah, would not have this again. Guinness Blonde American Lager was better.
