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 it’s hard to find reasons to have again.

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 There’s 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 it’s really not UNpleasant...

DuffMan (6751) - 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.

Very impressed with this lager. Doesn’t overwhelm you with corn flavour as so many alleged premium lagers do. I’m a big fan of indepedant breweries and this beer did not disappoint.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 4, 2010
473mL Can from the LCBO. Clear golden pour with a decently frothy white foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is grains, sweet malts, apples, hint of floral hops. Taste is fairly sweet with an appley, malty tinge lingering into a tempered, yet uninspiring finish. Not bad.

fullers (253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2010
Can from Brewery Shop. Poured clear golden with generous white head. Faint grainy aroma. Medium bodied, fuller taste than anticipated. Grain with some bitterness. Not a lot going on but drinkable..

cfrancis (2361) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2010
Plain bland beer. Nothing really to note. It’s straw yellow colour with a white head and good lacing. Aroma is grain, almost fruity but very faint. Taste is malt, lemon citrus and a light hop. Really not interesting and I won’t be going back.

FrankyBunz (8) - Scarberia a.k.a. Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2010 does not count
Pours a nice golden colour with a sizable white head, very smooth and refreshing with a slight sweetness. If you like blonde beers you should give it a try & see for yourself.

mmacleod75 (107) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2010
Poured from can. Light golden colour with small fizzy head that dissappeared quickly. Slight hoppy aroma. Decent mouthfeel and smooth. It’s own description pretty much sums it up. Smooth crisp lager. Very clean taste with a little malt flavor and a little hops. It would be refreshing on a summer day, but not a lot of character. If you want a clean tasting lager then this is one I’d recommend. If you want something with more character, then this is not it.
