  • Heineken Buckler
    rated 1.9 9 months ago

    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.

  • Heineken 0.0
    rated 2.5 9 months ago

    Aroma: 5 | Appearance: 6 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 4 | Overall: 4

    I wonder why Heieneken needs both Buckler and 0.0 as low alcohol beers? Another clear gold pour, head is white, and vanishes into thin air. Aroma is very similar to Heineken, maybe even better because there are no icky adjunct aromas in this one. Flavour is that of a watered down golden lager.

  • Aroma: 7 | Appearance: 5 | Mouthfeel: 5 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 7

    The beer pours a dark murky golden pink colour that will remind you of grapefruit juice, or at least it did with me. Aromatically, they have hidden the honeysuckle quite well, but the pomegranate and cherry notes jump out. The flavour is all about the fruit though. The grainy malt notes and the yeasty notes are all overwhelmed by the fruit. So....not a bad beer at all.

  • Whitewater Brewing KLR 93

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

    Named after Doug Gilmour, an NHL Hall of Famer who shouldn’t be, but that story is for another time. This is a kolsch. Not my favourite style. This is a very clear beer, pale yellow with a foamy white head. No head retention whatsoever though. Cereal notes dominate the flavour and the aroma with a hint of floral hops to keep it somewhat interesting

  • Whitewater Brewing Legion Lager

    Craft lagers are a finicky bunch. They claim to be adjunct free, but they don’t always taste that way. This one tastes adjunct free, and is pretty good for a ‘lager’. A dark straw coloured beer with a thin white foamy head greets the eyes while the nostrils are tempted with notes of light floral hops and cereal malts. The tongue is greeted with hints of cereal, and spicy hops. Well done.
