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.

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 lager’s 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.

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