3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased a growler from the brewpub. Poured with tons of carbonation, minimal head which quickly dissipated. Mild citrus notes for flavour, a bit of hoppiness and malty as well. Aromas of grains and malted barley. No head left whatsoever at about the halfway point. Fizzy mouthfeel and some carbonated sweetness. Doesn’t seem like a lighter than light beer to me. Pretty good.

Random lager without much booze even. Not a huge product here. Pours golden clear lager like. Some barley evidence here, not much else. Finishes sweet and sour without even crispness of a the better lagers. Tap at Quinns.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Paddy’s, Ottawa, August 18. Pours a clear, very bubbly yellow-gold with an average size lasting creamy white head. Decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is sweet, grainy and a bit buttery -- a bit too sweet. Flavour is also sweet, with honey and fruit and some butteriness. Average to medium bodied. Just O.K., not my thing.

Enjoyed at Quinn’s Ale house. Pours a clean golden colour with a great 2mm coating on top of the brew (almost creamy), staying the whole time. Quite nice ! Fresh farm hay scent that is quite mild. The mouthfeel is a little creamy, medium-bodied. Nicely balanced between cereal grain and fresh farm cream. Wow ! This is a light beer ?? Very well-brewed then. Seems like a regular session ale to me.
