Very surprising as I loved the taste. It was definitely not your standard canadian lager. It had a bit of a tang to it. Loved it

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden colour with very minuscule particles floating around. The head is big, creamy, fluffy, warm off-white, long lasting and gives out sticky lacing. Biscuit malt nose with a little hop. Mildly grainy taste, but more grassy hops kicking in the finish. Metallic hints from time to time and the grain lingers later. Quite a nice hoppier blonde ale. Reminds me of a micro version of the Labatt 50. And I love 50 as my bar go-to-beer.
