Very clear golden pour with a light head. Grassy slightly skunky nose. Very sweet. Watery. Lots of hops. Just a touch malty. Every easy to drink but not too much here I like. Goes down well enough, but too sweet for my tastes. Slightly oily finish. I’ll pass on this one. Actually it reminds me of the plethora of Euro-pils that seem to be everywhere locally. I actually had to check the style on this.

Pale straw colour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit minerally with a nice clean straw/hay flavour. Bright and clear with a light touch of sulphur as well. Delicately floral hoppiness with a lingering minerally character. Firm and clean - I think it’s pretty solid actually.

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 29, 2012
Medium golden with just a little haziness, medium carbo, and poor head retention. Aroma is sweet and more biscuity than grainy. Flavour is much the same with very little hops. Just okay.
