Amsterdam Natural Blonde LagerAmsterdam Natural Blonde Lager

Brewed by:
Amsterdam Brewing Company
Ontario, Canada

Style: Euro Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Crisp and clean, our flagship lager is a golden coloured beer brewed in the tradition of its continental cousins. Using Canadian pale barley, our brewers craft this beer by infusing the malt wort with only the finest aromatic noble hops. After a controlled fermentation with our Danish yeast strain, the beer is chilled and aged until being cold filtered prior to kegging or bottling. The finished product is a very clean and well-balanced hoppy beer without the astringent bitterness of some other European styled lagers. This Blonde is 100% all natural. If you don't believe us, just look under the cap.

Had this on-tap with a friend on October 30 ,2013.

Appearance - Yellow /golden color with plenty of apparent bubbles. Less than a finger of head but it lasted awhile which was a very pleasant surprise. Good lacing as well.

Smell - Very mild with some minimal malt presence, but virtually nothing in the way of hops. Nothing distinguishing for better or worse.

Taste - Quite sweet, a bit more than I was expecting, otherwise there's again a mild malt presence, but the absence of any strong flavors one way or another. Not unpleasant, but nothing that stands out.

Mouthfeel - While this style is generally on the light side and the taste is light, there is a fullness and richness to this beer that makes you realize that this is definitely not a light beer, but something more substantial.

Overall - A fine beer, but as one of the two craft selections on tap that night, it was merely the best available beer. Wouldn't hesitate to get it again, but with other watering holes just around the corner offering over 20 craft selections, I probably won't be back to try this anytime soon.
