Style et résumé: Mauvaise lager blonde aromatisée au houblon Sorachi. Marheb (6193) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Comment: Petite bouteille achetée et donnée par mon ami Patrick en Ontario.
Description: Bière blonde de couleur blé claire avec une mousse blanche. Les bulles sont grosses, style boisson gazeuse. Le nez est simplet avec une tonne de grain. La bouche est légère, des goûts de grains. Les saveurs sont absentes. On dirait une bière de millet sans gluten.
Un liquide de type eau minérale avec une couleur jaune pisse lendemain de veille. Le profil des saveurs consiste à une pointe gazonnée sur un fond de riz et de malt pale. Je l’ai tout de même engouffré, elle tombait à point. (Merci Pat, je lui ai pas donné une longue vie) SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
Une petite bouteille achetée en Ontario. Une lager très pâle et chauve. Un nez de céréales pâles avec une touche sucrée qui me semble insaisissable. Une pointe de vanille et/ou de fruits? Des fleurs? Un goût léger de malts pâles accompagnés par une infime touche de douceur. Une bouche mince et une texture fuyante. Un pétillement qui me semble être forcé. Une finale inintéressante sur des saveurs qui se perdent dans l’eau. Tout compte fait, pas mon meilleur achat. DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle. Light yellow with a slight haze and an average white head. Aroma is interesting, at first it is unmistakably vegetal but in a weird way. Some here are saying buttery, but that doesn’t quite hit it for me. The closest I can come is that it smells a little like hearts of palm or artichokes or something like that. Even that isn’t quite right, but its moving in the right direction. Maye a bit of pepper (i.e. capsicum, not spice). Flavour is also quite unique, and after a third of the bottle I am won over. There are pale malts here, clean and nice, but the real centerpiece is the sorachi ace hop character. I’ve commented before that it has almost a creamy, buckwheat kind of character that fades into a light floral lemon. Medium bitterness that is quite welcome in my version of any pale lager. This was interesting, beguiling, and well-made. I would buy more of this just to try and pin down what I’m getting on the palate with greater accuracy. Cool.

275 mL bottle. Never heard of Sorachi Ace hops until now, let alone known that they produce the unique buttery flavour mentioned in a few other rates. Pours a light golden colour with a fine head that dissipates quickly with no lacing. A little popcorn, yeast and lemon zest on the nose. The diacetyl comes through in the flavour as well, brioche comes to mind a little. Mildly flavoured, lightly bitter and mildly carbonated, easy on the palate and fairly light tasting. A decent quencher, but not all that interesting. Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color lager with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light citrusy and floral grassy notes from the hops with light clean cereal notes. Taste is a mix between some grassy floral hops with good notes of refreshing clean cereal notes with some light sweet notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Well brewed though a bigger hops punch could have provided further enjoyment of this one. Metalchopz (3534) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
Smaller 275ml single bottle (luckily, one was alone beside their 6-pack) from the LCBO. Pours a light golden colour with a small white head that disappears quickly. Real cereal malt scent... yeah, the real stuff - no corn. Pretty decent aromas for a light beer. Light-bodied and mildly carbonated. The taste though is kind of weird. Lightly malty, but with rice (it seems) in the aftertaste. Too bad the nice cereal present in the nose is not really showing in the taste. Still, a better than most macro light beers. czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
pours very clear light yellow with a very small white, very little retention. cereals, light lemon, not much sorachi here, cardboard, spicyness, metal, herbeceous hops. overly carbonated, light body. bland and disappointing. cfrancis (3574) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
Pours a pale crystal clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is faint cereal hop and grain. Taste is thin bodied but fairly tasty pale ale. Lightly malted and light floral and cereal hop.
