2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at McThirsty’s Pint. Poured a hazy blonde liquid. Appearance was somewhat attractive and not as clear as the common lager. Nose was curious with bread, and a slight hint of spice. Taste was totally different from the rest of my observation. Very foul and unpleasant. Unbalanced hop profile and dominating in bitter rye. Not recommended.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 mL bottle from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear golden with a minute white head.
Aroma: Surprising caramel/toffee, some bread/dough, non-descript fruitiness, a bit of diacetyl(?).
Palate: Medium body and medium-soft carbonation.
Flav.: Bread, cardboard, none of the malty or fruity notes from the nose; nothing much on the finish, a bit of mineral.
Like so many blondes, this one is attractive until you get to know it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A golden lager with a bit of a good frothy head. This is a lager, not an ale, and has a smooth, crisp lager taste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I tried this beer on October 28, 2007 after purchasing from my local LCBO outlet. The bottle poured a very nice translucent gold into the glass witrh a very loose frothy head thad disappeared quickly. The aroma is mildly hoppish with citrus tones. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with mild carbonation. The taste is a combination of citrus tones, hops, and a little grass.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2008 Keg, woo! A light golden colour with a thick white head. Citric, malty aroma, pleasant smell for a lager. Sweet corn like taste with a hint of malt. Mildly bitter finish, though pretty light overall. Kind of disappointing for a micro, but not bad in my opinion. Re-rate: I tried this in a bottle for the first time, may have been a little kinder cause it was in a keg the first time, but this is pretty bland, while some light flavour accents prevent it from full blown sucking.

500 ml bottle. pale blonde colour, thick white head. Lightly fruity with a hint of lemony citrus. A bit of berryish aroma as it warms up over the pale malt base. Fairly fruity aroma, but very light on flavour. Good body, low bitterness, and some citrus and berry flavour.
