2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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

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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
