3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
part of the seasonal 6 pack;
pours nicely decent head that lasts
saaz hops aroma but not as much on the palate; tastes similar to many Euro beers (Gosser etc)
way better than the run of the mill "macro" brews, drinkable just not memorable

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a footed pilsener glass. Aroma is pretty good, grassy hops. It actually looks great, well carbonated, rocky lasting head, snow white, with lots of lace. Taste is not bad, bit of metallicity to it though. Taste is mildly bitter, a bit one-dimensional. Quite light, not a real pleasant aftertaste. I’m not crazy about it.

Canned sample from lcbo. Drank from a can so didn't see the head or colour. Nice tasting. Hoppy enough. Will have it again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can pours a light golden color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is of light grass and fruits. Taste is a light fruit and malt sweetness with a grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with some decent carbonation. A little better than I was expecting from this brewery.

After a flight from Victoria this just hot the spot. Some saaz type hops and only a but of odd funky malt taste in finish. Some.crisp bitterness. Tall can o joy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very palatable pils that pours clear light gold with a moderate white top and good lacing. Aroma is straw and bready malts. Taste is light and easy drinking with a light malt profile. Would like to see it more pronounced. Still good just not exceptional.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden pour, medium white head. Decent grassy hops, some nice bready, if slightly overly sweet malts. Good mouthfeel, carb is a tad too soft. The flavor is a little muddled, lacks some crispness. The finish is lightly bitter with the hops making themselves known. I think its a rebrand of the old JR brickman pils. Arguably the only drinkable waterloo product.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 ml can. Clear gold colour, big, long lasting, white head. Clean aroma. taste is pretty simple, but nothing off about it. Crisp body. A little boring, but nothing bad here. A real beer that would appeal to the macro crowd.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 ml can from LCBO (part of Seasonal Collection Mixer). Pours a clear golden yellow with average white head. Aroma is cereal grains and a fairly prominent grassiness. Flavour is similarly grainy and grassy with just a dull bitterness in the finish. Average body. Pretty forgettable.
