3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden yellow body with foamy lasting white head and lacing. Bready aroma, with hints of lemon. Taste is bready malts, some nuttiness, a touch of hops. Crisp and refreshing. Okay beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can. Light golden colour with head that seemed a bit too carbonated, but ended frothy. Nice lacing that lasted throughout. Light floral hops aroma. Medium body with light sweetness and balanced hops bitterness. Very enjoyable and well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite a good brew. Pours a hazy honey color. Sweet fruity apple aromas, notes of honey and flowers too. Sweet honey flavours followed by a nice albeit subdued hoppy finish. Nice example of this style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canned sample. Straight-up clear yellow in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of wet grain, wet stones, and a bit of corn. More soft cereal grains on the palate, with the slightest hint of earthy hops on the back end. Not crisp at all, as it kind of clings tongue even though itís not really sweet. A bit crude overall, and not pilsner-like in the least. Could almost pass for a Helles.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Second brew from this brewery (after their IPA). Single can from the LCBO. Pours a clean golden colour with a frothy white head, good retention and dirty lacing. Smells like a Euro pils at first with hops, but then after breathing, seems like corn comes out making this one have a Canadian macro lager nose. When twirled, hints of cereal grains and alcohol appear. Again, this is the hop I do not like in my beers. Has a rusty taste to it. Thankfully, notes of grass saves this, from time-to-time. So, has many characteristics of a Euro Pils, but hard to justify buying more, as the Euro imports are less expensive here, and even a few are a little better.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
650ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grass and light fruits. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A decent pilsner, but could be better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can, pales straw colour. Aroma is zesty citrus, some maltiness and yeast. Light bodied and crisp. It's OK. Fresh tasting, a bit lemony. Fine.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden straw yellow with small white head thatís in it for the long haul, leaving plenty of lacing on the glass. Smells like fresh bread , caramel, banana and a little grassy hops. Smooth and light bodied with average carbonation, the taste is like the aroma - sweet bready malts in the fore and slightly less than ripe banana and grassy, slightly bitter hop finish. Very refreshing and good for a style that is not my usual cup of beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(650ml bottle) Purchased at Hillside Liquors, Victoria. Iíve got to agree with the last guy... Seems like a typical lager. It isnít crisp (as stated on the bottle) and the malt is somewhat corny. Other than that the head doesnít last, there is zero carbonation and its pretty basic. I imagine if I home brewed that my first solo attempt would turn out like this. Pretty bland.
