2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 It’s mild. It’s bland. It smells like cider. It tastes like flax. A touch of hops. I’ve 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.

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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Appearance is white head and clear yellow. Aroma is malty. Taste is light and unimpressive. Overall just a light beer, that’s it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!

From can, pours a bright golden colour with a head that quickly dissipates. Aromas of grain and a slightly fruity. It was definately a nice flavorful brew

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Never really felt like a lager to me, which was a good thing. Had to much taste to be a lager. Had a nice pale malt taste to it with bread and hay. Aftertaste was of mild hopping and was very refreshing on my parent’s veranda, but most beers are. Impressive for a lager to say the least.

Not terrible? Pretty great for a Pale Lager if you ask me. Not much to say, inoffensive and hugely preferable to most offerings of the style to be had around here. It has sweet honey, corn, grass, hay and cereal going for it. Crisp feel and lively carbonation. This lager has more positives than most lagers can claim.
