    It's hard to believe that I haven't rated this beer before. An issue I have with ths is that in Canada. Lowenbrau has been brewed by several different entities over the years. In the 70s and 80s it was brewed in Canada by Carling O'Keefe. Then it shifted to being imported for a few years, and now the cans in Canada are brewed by Labatt. Either way, I've had the German original, and they all taste pretty much the same. It's a well balanced Americanized German helles where you can detect the malted grains as equally as the Central European hops. It gets lifted by the Enjoyment scores, but isn't that part of the experience....enjoying the actual beer!

    Wow, an Ontario brewer that mislabels their cans....what a concept. The can says 'lager' which could be anything bottom fermented I suppose. It's a copper colour with a long lasting off-white head. Aroma doesn't match what I see as I would expect caramel or light toast but it's cereal, yeast, and light hops. The flavour is the same as the aroma with little to no caramel or roast making me wonder where the colour comes from.

  • Woodhouse India Pale Ale

    Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    Having been to the brewery a couple of times and been very disappointed in their stuff, I was kind of surprised that this was quite good. It's a dark gold pour, some haze, maybe even a floaty or two. I smell a lot of elements in this such as cereal, orange rind, and papaya. The flavours meld together nicely making this a nice drinking beer.

  • Woodhouse Hibiscus Raspberry Sour
    rated 1.7 3 years ago

    Aroma: 4 | Appearance: 4 | Mouthfeel: 3 | Flavor: 3 | Overall: 3

    Had this at the brewery, and I didn't have the heart to tell them how bad it is because the owner couldn't stop raving about it. It's an overcarbonated mess. Cherry red in colour, head is fleeting, notes of tart raspberries and yeast weak at best. Very watery, and flavour is minimal, but puckering.

  • Heineken Buckler

    Aroma: 4 | Appearance: 3 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 3 | Overall: 3

    I've known about Buckler beer for decades, they used to sponsor a team on the World Cycling Tour in the 1980s. Jelle Nijdam won a TdF prologue while racing for Buckler. It is a very clear gold, and the head starts out large but quickly disappears. Aroma is typical of the pale lager style, but the flavour is severely lacking. The bottle lists hops, but none can be detected.
