Simple as it gets, but nothing’s off and it’s a real quencher. You hardly notice this one, it doesn’t beg to be looked at in the glass, and it’s gone before you know it... pretty sure these guys use similar ingredients in most of their products, changing up one or two things (certainly not the yeast), because everything they make tastes the same, with a miel-nut malt undertone and a bit of a light lemony hop profile.

Bottle from the brewery. Golden colour with an okay head. Grainy aromas with some clean malt. Tastes very fresh and crisp. Malt forward with some light fruit is what I get. I’d consider this an above average blonde. I would enjoy this again.

The aroma is weak, butter, malty. The flavor is the same. The finish is butter, light pine. Medium in body. Not great.

Jaune un peu opaque avec une petite mousse blanche. Le goût de malt avec une finale d’houblon légèr. Carbonation moyenne. Le goût est un peu sourdiné, mais c’est une bonne bière d’été quand même.

Lagerboy (2221) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
Bomber. Clear bright orange yellow, creamy white head settles and lasts. Muted sweet lager malt aroma. Lightly bitter, biscuit malt taste, some citrus and earth. Soft carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. This bland blonde is mediocre and forgettable, but still LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Gerbeer (3795) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
650 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with lots of carbonation and medium head. Aromas of malt, bread, and a bit of lemon and toffee. Doughy, floral flavors with additional malt, honey, and citrus notes. Nice enough.

RumRunner101 (918) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
Bready aroma, light hop, lemon. Medium bodied with a frothy mouth feel. Picking up some dough and lemon in the body. Crisp with light hops. Finish is light hops, bread, and soap.

Appearance hazed gold with hint of amber. Medium white top.
Flavor and Palate : Caramel. Sweet malts , gentle tartness with slight hop on top. Easy going stuff.

very very tasty beer. Excellent aroma and mixture of all unique and wonderful different tastes. The over all finish to the beer is excellent as well. I strongly recommend seeking this beer out as it is definitely one of a kind.

DeanF (2469) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 15, 2011
Foggy gold body and almost no head. Soft malt and citrus on the nose. Flavour is maltiness with sharp carbonation on the mouth and a dry bready finish. Drinkable. Unremarkable.
