From sampler at brewery. Golden in color. Smells sweet with a very mild flavour. It’s a decent beer for the style, but hard to compete with the rest of their offerings.

I really like this IPA. Big bottle, pours nicely with a good head and colour. Citrus tones and hops that are not overpowering but are assertive. Flavourful!

At hub with Carla. Pours light gold with white foam. Smells slightly sweet of honey. Tastes very light with hints of honey, hops and light malts.

I like that it is organic, but that is about where it ends. Refreshing but little taste to pull me back in.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of fresh hay, corn syrup & lemon. Pretty yellow with modest white head. A little thick & oily in the mouth,Sweetness wins the balance and clashes a little with the pilsner-hops bittering. tastes a little murky. soft weet finish. Am a huge HUB fan, but i don’t quite get what they’re dong here.

Draft at BikeBar. Very pale yellow color. Light body, but a decent enough lager. Not overly exciting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very full bodied for a lager. Lot of wheaty grain taste and nose almost like a weiss beer, but clear golden and just a touch of hops. Nice summer beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2015 Have to re-rate. Kind of a staple now for the non-geek part of family gatherings. Big cans are a nice staple beer to have in the fridge. Sample tray. Gold. Grain and alcohol scent. Flavour is a little malt liquorish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Main Street Alehouse. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a big white head that really sticks around, leaving plenty of lacing on the way down. Mild soda cracker nose. Rich, creamy, lively carbed medium body. Great presence on the attack, especially for a pils. Grassy, crackery mid-palate with a nice toasty cracker finish. Light and refreshing with plenty of flavor. Beautifully done.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Neutral aroma, perhaps a bit of grain. Clear gold with delicate small head. Pilsner malt starts; familiar breadiness on the finish. Slightly sulpherous. Smooth lager; not much to report but no real flaws.
