Radek Kliber (6825) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), - MAY 16, 2013
Can 473 ml
Aroma: very nice malty front, slight fruit but not much. Clean and straight with gentle mineral backing. Herbal noble top end. 7+
Look: poured clear , deep golden with minimal short lived top. 3-
Taste/Palate/Body: thinner. Straight grainy feel with mineral watery walls. Thinner end. Thin malt base. Slight fruity hints here as well. Add more body , lower husky notes and this would be very nice. When warmer this beer changes much. Gets slight nutty hints , body gets fuller to acceptable levels. Lager that should be drunk at warmer temperatures.

473 ml can from a sampler four-pack from Sobeys, in a pilsner flute. Pours a moderately chill-hazed, yellowy-orange with lots of small-bubbled, slow-rising carbonation, creating a short-lived, milky, pearly, quickly-vanishing head that leaves no lace. Aroma has a goodly amount of malt and cereal present, with whiffs of vegetal, grass, and paper; flavor is...urk...wet, moldy cardboard and dry, dusty newsprint, with dirty vegetal sourness throughout the mouth and a related bitterness brushing the edges of the tongue. Thereís no lager-ish sweetness or cereals, nor a recognizable hop character, that I can tell, but there is a hint of a "chemical stripper", like nail polish remover or WD-40. Feels thin, a tad oily, and has a lingering metallic tang. Bizarre flavor, although not sickening enough to be a drain pour. Iíll give them one good mark for being a dry, noticeably un-sweet lager. Still, itís really unpleasant, enough so that I canít recommend it. Why do microbreweries have such difficulty fashioning a palatable lager?

473ml can. Clear yellow appearance, lots of carbonation bubbles, head is thin and white. Aromas of grains, slightly fruity and sweet. Taste is grainy with medium sweetness, and a little fruitiness. Plain finish, no sign of any hops. Fairly standard macro styled lager.

What can I say that is positive about this beer. It pours a light golden brown. Looks appealing. Good amount of carbonation. Overall it was refreshing, but bland. MB

bunget (713) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2015
473ml can. Clear pale yellow body, small white head with poor retention and no lacing. Aroma of grains and honey, leaves and a touch of leather. Taste is inoffensive: grains, traces of herbs, honey, mineral aftertaste. Bland.

RandyBrunatti (5) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015 does not count
A golden yellow. Subtle head. A slightly sour, flowery aroma. Decent well balanced refreshing lager, good on a hot day. Smooth well balanced light lager.

CRock (136) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 21, 2014
Golden colour. Didnít really get much of a head on the pour but not a big deal, it was a pretty generic lager anyway so I donít think I missed much.
