Gpnterojd (178) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Itís mild. Itís bland. It smells like cider. It tastes like flax. A touch of hops. Iíve had better lagers for cheaper. 2.3 Re rate, Aug 21 2013: Fruity aroma, apricots and peaches prominent. Taste is inoffensive and nondescript. Very minimalistic, but thirst quenching and enjoyable on a hot day.

Nothing overly offensive about this, I got some 355ml bottles from the Beer Store and itís mild as I remember it. Nothing strong in the scent nor taste other than what youíd expect. Descriptions mentions some hops but I donít really find it. Corn and malt probably. Fine for a session beer because itís light and local

rwgould (331) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
Aroma: Really skunky, smells really off. Maybe like off cheese or rotting leaves or something nasty. Appearance: Golden brown, transparent, light head. Taste: Very strongly of bananas at first, quite sweet, slightly bitter. Not sour at all. The finish is awful though, like drinking moldy bread. Yuck. OMG Yuck. Palate: Smooth and carbonated.

Hammy78 (802) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
Iíve had this numerous times, but I for some reason canít seem to deal with the aftertaste. Pours a golden colour. Smells and tastes of grain.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2010
Not particularly of my liking, but truer to the European style than most of its competition. Not offensive, and would rather get than any macros, but unless you are into clean tasting lagers itís hard to find reasons to have again.

thb (735) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2010
Pours straw/gold with good size bubbly head that actually lasts a respectable while. Aroma promises some fruitiness/floral notes but the taste is grain, grain, grain. Light malts Thereís a medium sweetness to it too. Hops are hard to find outside a bit in the aroma. Not bad. 2.4 seems a little harsh as itís really not UNpleasant...

DuffMan (7228) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 7, 2010
Can, shared with Rockley in our Ontario lager taste-off. Clear golden, average white head. Lightly fruity sweet grainy aroma. Clean grainy palate, slightly sweet, nuances of fruity hops. Not bad.

danmingo (25) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 19, 2010
Very impressed with this lager. Doesnít overwhelm you with corn flavour as so many alleged premium lagers do. Iím a big fan of indepedant breweries and this beer did not disappoint.
