Remarkably smooth for a full-flavoured beer. Our founders intention was to combine the refreshing taste of a German lager with the distinctive taste of an English Ale without blending the two.

Underwhelming cream ale. Flavour is pretty mild, but suppose thats a bit more characteristic of a big brewer.

Bire jaune-orange, incroyablement limpide, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmonte dun col blanc troit et peu dense, mais tout de mme assez persistant. Armes de malt ple, grain, crale sucre, mas, sirop de mas On dcle galement quelques effluves houblonns a semble, herbac, feuillu, floral, vgtal Odeur peut-tre un peu poivre par moment Nez peu intressant, peu complexe et peu intense! En bouche, ptillement lev sur la langue, onctuosit moyenne au palais, il nest pas farfelu de la considrer crmeuse Au got, entre de malt ple, grain, crale sucre, sirop de mas suivi dun houblon aux tonalits principalement vgtal (branchage, feuillage, saveurs un peu florales). Par moment, la bire semble un peu citronne en bouche. Finale assez sche lamertume plutt bien sentie. Got correct, bonne intensit en bouche, mais complexit dfinitivement faible. La bire dveloppe les flaveurs typiques dun lager commerciale, mais en plus ronde, plus intense et plus amre. En ce sens, elle me semble bien rpondre aux attentes quon peut mettre en elle

Bierdimpfe (633) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2016
Bright golden color with moderate activity. Weak 1 finger head that last around 5 minutes, and having faint legs. Flavors of corn syrup, sweet grains, faint lemon and herbal hops. Highly sugary and syrupy, at least not too corny. Light body with prickly carbonation. Light and short finish of thick sugars and roasted barley. Overly accessible and bland. Okay freshness, doesnt feel too adjunct. Still its watery and not enjoyable. Overall bad quality craft.

Pours clear gold with a quick fading white head. Aroma is malt and bread. Taste is mild sweet, mild bitterness with a metallic aftertaste. Not bad but nothing special.

wheresthepath (2299) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Can from Beers of Europe. Gold with a white head and a lot of fizz. Looks like a macro lager if Im honest. Theres a brief moment of brightness up front - a little twist of lemon and a bit of vanilla- but it all too quickly descends into fizzy, metallic sweetcorn juice. Theres a tiny hint of grassy hop in the background, but not enough to distract from what is a pretty dreadful beer.

Appearance: clear straw with one finger of fluffy white head, good retention and no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: biscuity malt, corn adjunct, faded grassy hops. (4/10) Taste: mild sweet, mild bitter. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, medium duration slightly astringent and metallic finish. (2/5) Mostly inoffensive - although the finish actually is, a little. Really, just your basic pale domestic lager, with only the faintest of nods to the cream ale style. (4/10)

the slight creaminess prevents the score from being in the 1s, but this is pretty much a fail from start to finish (which I did not).
