Funny name for a lager. Was expecting a Blonde ale. Refreshing malt forward lager. A bit crisper than a major commercial lager, but very little going on here for a micro product. Not regretting drinking it though on a hot summer evening.

This stuff is pretty boring. Light gold pour with a clean white cap, very mild retention. Nose is pale grain and a bit of hay. Taste is pretty boring pale malt, slightly watery, with a hint of bitterness on the finish. It’s a pale lager alright....

At a pub on college street with Jun. The server recommended it as "a lager much better than Canadian". Golden color. Citrus aroma and taste. Really Hoppy. Like it. Good as a first round.

Bready malt, mild honey, grassy hops, dry finish. Quite watery, nowhere near as good as their brewpub creations, almost feels like a macro lager...

On tap at the brewery. Pours transparent golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, light floral hops, and some light toast/bread. Average to lighter texture. Good for the style. Similar to their 416 but less hoppy.

LetsGoState (673) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Appearance is white head and clear yellow. Aroma is malty. Taste is light and unimpressive. Overall just a light beer, that’s it.

Pours a clear straw colour with little head and very fine, almost invisible carbonation. Aromas are of light citrus, with a slight hint of wet cardboard in the background. A smidgen of honey too. Tastes are fairly sweet citrus fruits, with some apple in the background. Each mouthful gives the impression it is watery, but then it always finishes with more substance than expected on the swallow and after taste.. An extremely quaffable beer.

jksipa (531) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
Can from the LCBO. Very pale slightly hazy amber with a small white head that doesn’t last. Nose is faint grain, grass and honey. Light sweet start with a bit of grassy hop bitterness in the middle and a short crisp finish. Mouth is light with soft carbonation. Good for a pale lager...

AtronSeige (970) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 28, 2014
Aroma: Malt: Light honey. Hops: Light musty, Other: Medium-light metallic. No DMS, no diecetyl. Appearance: Clear gold body. Medium. white, frothy head. Good retention. Flavour: Malt: Medium, sweet, grainy/bready. Hops: Light, musty. Balance: Malt sweetness orientated, but enough bitterness to not make it cloying. Medium-dry finish with a bit of a bite. Mouthfeel: Light body, medium-high carbonation. Crisp. Overall: An enjoyable, easy drinking beer, but smelling of metal. Sweet, but not cloying. The metallic aroma is overpowering the other, already subtle aromas. The can was rinsed and wiped to ensure no metallic residue on the can. Fix the metallic smell. Too sweet to have more than a few of. The hops also seems wrong for the beer. 473 ml can, poured. Thanks Amanda and Wimpie! 1B. Standard American Lager

Apparence: D?une couleur jaune pâle translucide, elle est coiffée d?une bonne mousse d?une bonne durée. Effervescence quasi inexistante. Arômes: Au nez, ce sont des notes de malt et de fraîcheurs avec une touche d’agrumes. Saveurs: Très, très simple au goût. Léger goût de céréales qui ne dure pas et c’est tout. Un peu de fraîcheur, aucune effervescence, ni amertume. Fiche technique Style: Pale Ale Format: 473 ml Taux d?alcool: 5%
