Poured from 500ml bottle into pint glass. Best by date of August 2017.

Amber in color, crystal clear with a whispy white head that disappeared fairy quickly. Toasted grain aroma. Sweet malty flavor with hints of caramel, cooked grain balanced by a slight herbal hop note. Crisp, dry mouthfeel.

Purchased for $1.75. Really good value for the quality. A nice euro strong lager.

Poured into a Celebrator pokal. Pours a medium coppery amber with a thin off-white head that dissipates to sparse patches, but with light lacing. Aroma of dark malt, mild cocoa, hint of caramel. Flavor is caramel and dark malt, mild cocoa and hints of dark fruit. Finishes malty with slight hop bitterness. Medium bodied with slight creaminess. I did not have high expectations for this, but ended up enjoying it just fine. A nice malt body that is close to a German dunkel in flavors, but more subdued. Slightly sweet, with interesting suggestions of cocoa and fruit. Although mild in flavor, plenty here to enjoy. Given a choice of any "Euro" style, this would be a welcome choice.

Strikes me as a medium-dark lager. This was better than OK... but then, I prefer malts. And this uses malts well enough. Half-recommended.

A - Clear orange body, no real head, very minor lacing.

S - A bit funky grain, a bit of sulphur and spice hops. Not inspiring.

T - A pleasant malt heavy open and middle, a sudden hit of honey in the middle that lingers through the close.

M - Very brisk carbonation. A touch sticky. A close that is prickly.

O - Not bad, but also not terribly inspiring. Some fine malt flavors, which is the primary selling point. The feel is a bit aggressive, and the nose is not pleasant. Something I'm glad to try, but not something I'd grab again.

500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 10/29/2015. Pours crystal clear golden amber color with a 1 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of honey, cracker, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of honey, cracker, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of honey, cracker, toasted biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a goods bit. Nice robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness as well. Very clean on lager flavors with zero yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, fairly creamy/grainy, and slightly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good strong pale lager. All around good robustness and balance of bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Decent. Was one of the cheaper "strong" beers available in Toronto. Very drinkable, but no outstanding qualities.

Bottle from Tres Bonne Cuisine. Pours a dark gold, sweet and syrupy. Sweet candy malt and corn dominate the aroma. Small airy head disappears almost immediately. Taste is cooked vegetables, sweet malt. Overall not bad once you get past the sweetness, not as funky/musty as some.

Poured from pint can into tasting glass. It pours a clear gold with a snow-white head and lacing. The smell is rather bland. Some malt and a hint of raisin or plum. It tastes better than it smells: it is fairly fruity with plum and raisin, along with the malt. There is a faint taste of caramel at the finish. The taste is a lot sweeter than I anticipated. It is light in body and moderate in carbonation with a manageable ABV of 6.5% Overall, it was better than I anticipated and could be much better on draught.
