Very pale straw coloured pour. The nose is slightly grainy and a little bit fruity. A touch of soft wheat as well. Fairly clean tasting with a bit of light bitterness as well. Some lingering grassiness. Simple and pleasant.

MartinT (7746) - 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.

Bendrixian (1069) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
Can. fairly clear darker yellow colour with a decent head. I find the aroma not pleasant, with a dank wet cardboard aroma and something soured; light roast, some citric hops and a bunch of funk that i associate with pilsners. medium bodied brew(which to me was surprising), some bite and a fast flavour profile. It is different, maybe a bit bigger and more flavourful than other brews in its class but does that make it a good beer...probably not.

Darker golden lager some carbination. Big bubbly head leaves little bite of laceing. Smell is fimilar but of a craft lager not macro lager smell so not that just beer smell but nothing super awesome. Taste well itís a crisp lager with some water,mabye some grain,bread & barly. Plus it has some sweetness a bit to it so Iím not big on it. A little bit of a sweet maybe little spicy as well craft lager type lager. Also some what of a dry lager.
