3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle (5,2% abv). Small but dense off-white head over a bright, pale amber body. Nice hoppy nose along with dry malts and dry fruits. A little malty sweetness and a fair amount of bitter hops in the flavors. Not so mouthfilling as expected, a bit watery palate, but still an enjoyable and well-made lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden-orange body and a sudsy white head. Sweet, lightly toasted biscuity malt nose and mild spicy hop notes. Flavor follows with a nice balanced malt and hop profile. Faintly buttery and lightly sweet with moderate bitterness. A fair session amber lager.

Bottle - surprisingly good, considering the style. Amber to orange body with an off-white head. Sweet malty aroma and a touch of spice hops. The flavor matches. Very nice!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light orange in colour with average carbonation. Well balanced aromatics with lots of grassy and slightly citrusy hops mixing with a bit of both sweet and dry buscuity malts. Hops forward in the mouth with a nice grassy, spicy, and floral flavors... good firm bitterness too. The malt elements re-appear on the back end with a bit of light toast. Refreshing, but still has loads of character. One could win over a patio full of macro lager drinkers with this beer. Big thanks to pootzboy for the bottles.

So it’s nice that the LCBO is carrying this as a regular item. I’ve had it a number of times since it’s release about 3-4 months ago. Pours a shimmering clear copper body with a large foamy white head slowly receding. Pleasing aroma consisting of mild grain sweetness and fruity, kind-of leafy hops. Solid body structure with bready type flavours up front and then leading into twangy hops. The finish is again a bit astringent and bready.
A nice well-crafted brew to keep around.
