3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fresh, clean, hop forward aroma offers floral, grassy, lightly spicy notes with underlying pleasant cereal malt character. Clear golden blonde body is topped by a decent and lasting, pillowy white head. Spicy, floral, grassy hops play well against the grainy malt sweetness and restrained fruity esters with mild finishing bitterness and a hint of alcohol. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub at March in Montreal 2006.

[on tap at brewpub]
Bright gold with lasting, white froth. Curious sour aroma with noble hops and nice lagery maltiness. Pleasant sulfury lagery malt flavour (is this really an ale?) mixed with German hops bitterness that plays off the obvious ethanol flavour. Moderate carbonation with lasting bitterness and a bit mouth coating.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Weak aroma of caramel. Decent flavor of saaz hops, pilsner and caramel malts with a mild bitter finiss. Medium body with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation. This feels like a pilsner but with ale fermentation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Any first impressions?
-Moderate lacing is produced by the meager ring of head which tops the diluted yellow.
-You really have to dig in to find any character in the aroma.
-Hay and pils malt biscuitiness plead for forgiveness.
-The fizzy carbonation easily takes over the light and quenching body.
What if you dig deeper?
-Hay and grassy hops finally peer through the nearly inexistant foam.
-Pils maltiness rises nicely in the finish.
-Alcohol is again pretty useful, barely perceptible, but knowingly present.
-An easy session can be had with this substance-less blonde, but I don’t think it could keep me interested long enough.
On tap at the brewpub.
