3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ bent Elbow - pours a hazed gold with a decent 2 finger cap, light grainy-bready notes and some light grassy hops. The flavour is richly malty, spicy with sufficient hop bite. I was impressed at how rounded and finished this beer was, it obviously spent some time in conditioning -very pleasant, flavorful and satisfying for a higher gravity brew.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from the LCBO. Bright gold with a snow white head. Aroma of bready malt, bit of honey, grassy hops. Flavour is OK at first - pretty much what the aroma promises, really - but as it warms, it develops a slight vegetal note, and the body goes from clean and crisp to cloying and sticky. Too bad, as it starts as a half-decent Euro-lager, but just doesn’t hold up.

Can, Ann Arbor, MI via Lcbo. Medium gold. Very little head. Sweet hop aroma. Some pepper. Sweet honey with subdued hop flavour. Very drinkable but not that interesting.

A good clean, and crisp lawnmower beer. Nothing fancy or special, grass hops, clean , slightly bready pils malts. Little to no bitterness. Can easily crush a few lf these cold on a summer afternoon.

Can - 500ml. Slightly hazy body with a thin white frothy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with flowery, bready, and grassy hints. Its fresh taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries herbal and piney notes. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Honest macro Pilsner.
