Metalchopz (2960) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2016
Pours a hazy golden colour with fluffy warm head, bubbling away, leaving some foamy lace. Seems a little infected, as some very mild sour notes. Wheat flavours with some decent yeast in the finish. Some light hops lingers with hints of rusty water. I enjoyed this one when it was named "416 Urban Wheat", but not sure about this one now. Seems like they changed the recipe. Maybe cheaper ingredients.

Such a beautiful facility, such disappointing beer. Taste is overly hoppy for a lager and pungence is borderline offensive

Eructoblaster (3608) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
On tap at Local Public Eatery (Ottawa, ON). Blond body with a thin, lasting, white creamy head. Light malty/hoppy aroma with herbal hints. Its thin malty/hoppy taste carries grainy and herbal notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Drinkable.

On tap at the brewery. Pours transparent golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, floral hops, and some light toast/bread. Average to lighter texture. Good for the style. Hoppier than Natural Blond from this brewery.

berkshirejohn (5681) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2014
On tap at the Amsterdam Brewhouse, Toronto waterfront. Straw with a ring of white head; grainy aroma; grainy in the mouth and quite full-bodied; with a light grassy bitterness to finish. Refreshing.

There is a sharpness of grass that I find overpowering. Itís almost metallic and has this grassy aftertaste like Iím drinking a farmers field. Is it made from grass? I just taste grass.

MartinT (8957) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Clear pale malt character dominates this generic lagerís very mild herbal, citrusy hopping.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam sits atop the clear gold.
-The finish is rather forgettable.
-Drinkability is very high.
-The prickly carbonation adds a mineral tinge.
-This may be generic, but it remains a well-made entry level ale with distinct malt flavors.

On tap at The Saint Tavern, Toronto.
