3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly skunky aroma. Clean on the palate but with some astringency. Flavor is very mild to non-existent. This beer is okay, but not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-pours lite orange with a small soapy white head and no lacing. nose is somewhat musty-wet grains, sort of wet cardboard thing going on. I dont think this beer is that old, i think they just use old or shitty malt. flavors exhibit these wet cardboard and cracker like malt profile. long grainy finish with some very faint spicy hops but pretty dull hop profile. really not into this one very much. i wonder what it is like on fresh tap?

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
smells like my minds’ nose-vision of what beer should smell like. The smell I conjured up while watching the simpsons in grade school. Homer would drool over a beer and I would imagine a smell like this. It’s not a great smell nor is it a bad one. It just is a beer smell. Appearance is hard for me to judge. I don’t have many biasses and usually think most brown transparent liquids look healthy to me. This does not taste like a traditional lager, which is a shift from what the aroma would suggest. I find it tangy and sweet. Slightly bitter. A taste that comes on strong initially but eventually fades the more I sip(i suppose that is the case for all beer). I didn’t love the palate and decided to give it a modest 3. It sparkled in the mouth a little too long. Overall I am enjoying the beer and happy I purchased it at 2.99 for a single bottle.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a copper color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with grains and grass. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. Light to medium body with decent carbonation.

355ml brown bottle. Clear yellow pour. White cap, creamy. Spotty lace. Nose has cereal/grains with light sweetness. Taste has grains, bit of herbal hops. Clean finish with a light leafy hop aftertaste and light bittering. Overall a good clean lager, good session beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear golden brew with white head. Pleasant lightly hoppy aroma. Taste is mild sweet malt at the start with a nicely hoppy finish. A full bodied and flavorful lager that holds true to lager style - very good.

Straight from the bottle after a long day of cleaning and a nice walk. Nice lager with some character. The hops are there but they don?t linger long. Refreshing. Cool story too.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium gold and sparkling with very fine, intermittent carbonation. Loose, Sudsy wash of white atop is mostly lasting. Strange, weedy, dried herb and tea leaf nose with a hint of marijuana and haybales, mouse fur and lemon peel. Light bodied with medium, spritzy carbonation. Lagered well with low, grainy malt and dusty hops mid-palate. Earthy, mildly bitter finish that is crisp. Clean and straightforward. Sessionable but rather undemanding. Average!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Warm, roasted flavor. Settles nicely on the palate, but has a "foamy" feel to it. A nice session beer, it also is great for cooking. A good example of a well made lager.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Whoa, this is a first rate lager, cereal, rye bread, hay and a hint of green apple. Full bodied and crisp. This would be a great grillin’ beer.

A little surprised to see this today at the COOP... Picked up a few bottles and am getting to one while taking care of some business for tomorrow...
Poured into my thin tulip.. clear golden.. small bubble white head rises up and drops pretty quickly but the cap leaves nice drapes of lacing.
Nose shows clean pale malt with just enough hoppiness to balance.. smells fantastic.
Good balanced bitterness that just allows a subtle pale malt sweetness to get interesting... Hop flavors are sorta grassy and inviting.. This is a really well done brew.. Perfect for an evening barbecue..
Light/medium body ... good bubble.. nicely drinkable..
