2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2008-04-10. Pale yellow body with a good sized white head. (3+) Perplexing aroma, floral, lemon-honey is nice, but a hint of paint emerges later on after an ill fated swirl of the glass. Mild bitterness in the flavour, similar floral notes as in the aroma are not unpleasant but don’t particularly pull me in either. Average palate. Bottle courtesy of GregClow

Bottle (12oz). No ClowGr’s tasting, shared with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev. Pale clear yellow, decent bright white head lasting head. Aroma of hay and tempura paint. Taste harsh weeds and cardboard. Light, sharply carbonated, harsh finish. No thanks.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured bright, milky golden with a short cap of fizzy white head. The aroma picked up sweet bready malts, honey, and corn accented by lemon-peppery notes.. soft overall and well-presented. The flavor had a sweet pale malty base surrounded be lemon zest and light medicinal notes.. sweet bread and honey on the short, fizzy finish.. aiight. Creamy, very full carbonation on the palate.. enough to interrupt the flow of the drink and make it a bit sharp.. drinkable overall, but nothing really good going for it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draft at CBW. Poured pale gold in color with small white ring of head. Aroma of mild mild hops. Taste is of pale malts, mild hop bitterness, earthy. I have to say for a lager, I enjoyed the hops. Other then that, not my thing.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pale gold with a small white head that disappears quickly. Grainy malt aroma with a slight vegetal note. Thin body with heavy carbonation. Sweet start to the flavour with an unpleasant undertone, like overcooked veggies, and an unbalanced bitterness in the finish. Not very good.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Courtesy eclectic. Clear gold. Insignificant white head. Faint aroma of whole grains, corn, and subtle bitter hops. Flavor adds a bit of malty sweetness and more hops- grassy, earthy, bitter. Dry, bitter finish. Light body, suitably well carbonated. Nice warm weather beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Brewpub. Pours a sparkling gold with a white head. Not much discernible aroma, just some weak pale malts. Initial flavor of pale malts, bread, perhaps some sweet corn. The herbal hops are surprisingly detectable, but still mild in bitterness. Finish is ultra clean. Not a bad pale lager, but way too sweet for me
