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

Bottle. Pass it up! The description says "smooth for a full-flavoured beer" - well the flavor police must’ve stolen the goods outta my bottle! Head was weak and fizzy. This was a pale lager-like beer with a pissy taste. All that was missing was the aluminum taste and it could’ve been a Coor’s product.

Pours clear gold with a small white head. Aroma is light pils and carbonation. Flavour is smooth and light. Finish is just barely bitter.

Bottle at the Mandarin restaurant Burlington Ontario. Almost no aroma, hint of honeyed biscuit. Bland "beer" flavour. Too dull to dwell on. Great Chinese buffet restaurant though.

Pours a foamy white cap of head but doesn’t produce much lacing. Has a golden appearance. Typical wheaty and grainy aromas, light malts and very mild citrus hops. Somewhat distinct corn aroma as well. Mild citrus hops, corn, grains. Slightly sweet in the finish, but nothing too excessive. Light floral hops and wheaty malts as well. Has a slightly oily and slick mouthfeel, average carbonation and is medium bodied. Not too bad Sleeman brew. Goes down real easy, refreshing. Perfect for summer parties.

Got this one with colleagues at Pizzaros. Didn’t know what to take from the limited commercial beer selection. Not bad, faint, lack taste. The usual large distribution common beer.

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

Bière jaune-orangée, incroyablement limpide, effervescence moyenne-bonne, et surmontée d’un col blanc étroit et peu dense, mais tout de même assez persistant. Arômes de malt pâle, grain, céréale sucrée, maïs, sirop de maïs… On décèle également quelques effluves houblonnés… ça semble, herbacé, feuillu, floral, végétal… Odeur peut-être un peu poivrée par moment… Nez peu intéressant, peu complexe et peu intense! En bouche, pétillement élevé sur la langue, onctuosité moyenne au palais, il n’est pas farfelu de la considérer crémeuse… Au goût, entrée de malt pâle, grain, céréale sucrée, sirop de maïs… suivi d’un houblon aux tonalités principalement végétal (branchage, feuillage, saveurs un peu florales…). Par moment, la bière semble un peu citronnée en bouche. Finale assez sèche à l’amertume plutôt bien sentie. Goût correct, bonne intensité en bouche, mais complexité définitivement faible. La bière développe les flaveurs typiques d’un lager commerciale, mais en plus ronde, plus intense et plus amère. En ce sens, elle me semble bien répondre aux attentes qu’on peut mettre en elle…

Bierdimpfe (640) - 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, doesn’t feel too adjunct. Still it’s 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.

A smooth cream ale with a creamy body. A rich golden with a short head. No label! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ktwse (5667) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Pours clear pale golden with a finger of white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste is bready, malty sweet. Body is light and smooth with soft carbonation.
