Surprisingly drinkable lager, that originated as a pilsner and then became malted up. Good lace, creamy mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation. Pale yellow. No distinct bitterness. Very decent and serviceable. Good job Tim.

I could have sworn that I rated this. Anyhow, it is pale golden with medium head. Aroma is pale malt, slight hopcitrus and honey. The flavor is pale malty, slighty crisp, with finishing hops and some citrus. Not terrible, but not a repeater.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear golden color with a thick and fizzy white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing around the top of the glass. The aroma is faintly hoppy with a hint of malt. Light-bodied and crisp with a weak floral hops flavor supported by a surprisingly sweet undertone. Malty flavor stays there through the finish, making this one lean toward the sweet side throughout. The finish is rather short as well. Below average.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2010-12-28. Lightly hazy golden yellow body with a foamy white head. Aroma of sweet lightly grainy pale malt. Flavour is similar, simple sweet lightly grainy pale malt character, very light bitterness. Average plus palate. Decent but a bit dull. This is about what you’d expect for a mainstream offering from a small brewer. Okay.
All I know is that once I finished the beer Team Canada started winning against the Czech Republic. Final Result 7-2!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the New York Wine and Culinary Center. Pale gold with some interesting lacing. Hugely fruity, ale-like nose, with lots of muscat. Grainy, sweet, fruity flavor. Bready, wiht cracker-like malt. Huge bitterness at the finish. Interesting and original, though a bit weird for a lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (12oz). Clear gold, very small white head, some white sediment. Light sweet grainy aroma, initially quite bready, then just vague sweet malt and very faint hops. Tastes a bit like an old-style Canadian macro - fizzy, grainy, a little harsh, bitterness, but no real hop character - ehhh. Fishing beer, that’s about it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance: Almost clear pale gold, thick white head. Aroma: Citrusy hops dominates. Palate: Medium. Flavor: Very crisp and fresh. Hops is well balanced by a nice sweet malty back. Lemon, honey, a hint of spice. Overall: I had to knock it up a few points for being a home town brew. Not an excellent beer but very drinkable and enjoyable.
