I tried this beer on March 27, 2009 after pourchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent reddish gold with a 1" thick white head which quickly dissipated. The aroma was sour grainy malt, and some floral notes. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt, some toffee hints, and a bitter finish.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2009
Bottle LCBO Spring Release 2009. Looks great - dark yellow, big fluffy white head. Grainy aroma, not great. Taste - odd. Almost macro lagerish, but some malt and nuttiness in there as well. Maybe a little sweet. Does really work at all and not very good.

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - APR 15, 2009
Nice amber/gold color offset by the aroma of a cured saltiness like in a ham. A little bit of brininess in the flavor. Finishes alright, though not anything I will get again.

blankboy (7430) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Beer #1 of "Crappy to mediocre beer rating night". Good start, it certainly looks decent: Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size mostly-lasting frothy off-white head. The aroma not so much: Grainy, corny, slightly skunky and grassy along with some fusel, sugar and finally sweet malt -- not awesome. Flavour pretty much follows the aroma: Grainy, corn and grassy along with some skunk (but not as much as the aroma) and alcohol but adds a hint of chestnuts. Average dry bitter finish. Aftertaste isnt great. Average bodied. Not awful but not good, and definitely not a Vienna, of that Im sure.

probstblueribbon (3786) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2009
330 ml bottle from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. MR17/09.

App.: Amber, clear, decent off-white froth. Aroma: Cereal and grain, slightly sweet malts light perfume, a little nutty, slightly skunky, very slight spice. Palate: Medium body and fairly soft carbonation. Flav.: Cereal and grain, a little roasted malt sweetness, very slightly nutty, some grassy/resinous hops, a touch spicy; dry with a little bitterness and light brown sugar.

Inoffensive and uninspiring.

HogTownHarry (6380) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Bottle (330ml). Deep burnished brass, clear, with a large fluffy off-white head (3+). Pungent grassy aroma with honey. Taste - even grassier - not skunked, just pungent and a little roasty, increasingly sweet on the tongue, a bit astringent, the big downside is after a fairly "ehhh" journey it leaves a somewhat harsh aftertaste.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2009
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a light orange with a tall effervescent head. Aroma is a tad on the skunky side. Vegetativeness with some cardboard along with grain and malt in the aroma. Aggressive carbonation and a heavier mouthfeel than I thought there would be. The malt sweetness is overshadowed by a medicinal band-aid taste. Some bitterness there but the hops just add to the disharmony. This stuff is pretty dreadful. I wont be drinking this again.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Clear amber orange with two fingers of white head with sticky lacing. Thin metallic caramel aroma, taste is mild, caramel and metallic bits with a bit of nuttiness.
