COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our only regularly produced lager, this rich malty beer uses just the right amount of noble hops to balance the Munich Malts and features an ultra clean finish to complete the package. Brewed with local spring water, organic malts and organic hops. Oh yeah!

600 mL bottle. Pours a clear orange tinted copper, firm head of beige bubbles, very pretty. Aroma is fairly vegetal, notes of bell pepper, flowers, and yeasty bread. Medium carbonation and body, smooth on the palate, distinct lager refreshment. Flavors of caramel and toast come through, a little roasted oats and herbs. A touch of sweetness with a light hoppy finish. A nice medium bodied lager.

BreWedge (326) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 12, 2012
600 ml bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thick off-white head, bubbles of varying size. Aroma is dominantly yeast/bready malt and funk. Tastes are medium bitter hops and light sweet (caramel). Mouthfeel is vibrant but relatively thin. Finish is a medium, astringent, bitter. Not bad but not outstanding.

Rating #1000 - haven’t gotten around to my backlog and its sorta nice that it ended up being a local brewery - just released for the fall season. On tap at the Atomic Rooster. Vibrant and dark amber with a nice creamy head. A nice amount of malt , slightly resiny hops, brown sugar, grains. Moderate carbonation and decent body, definitely bitter with a nice sweet malty undertone, some fruit and more malt on the finish. I would drink this again for sure.

Orange/auburn with ample but short lived head. I get barley (shocking i know, but that’s what comes through), bread. Light hopping. Balance, pleasant. Some off-flavours.

neuromatt (1169) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
On cask at C’est What in Toronto, served in an English pint glass. Pours clear orange-amber with a small, off-white head. The head fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. On the nose, there are notes of biscuit malts, bread, citrus, fruit and a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is balanced between slight sweetness and slight bitterness. Toasted malts balance with delicate herbal and resinous hops. The flavour becomes slightly more bitter towards the end, leading up towards a clean, malty finish with herbal hops. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a balanced but bland example of a märzen. It could be a lot more complex, both on the malt side and the hop. 2011-12-17
