1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Can sampled at Brewery Creek, pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavour are pretty bland biscuit and corn, with a watery finish. Not good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with my wife. Bright yellow, thick white head that retains until the bottom of the glass and leaves early lace. Aroma has some delicate florals amongst grain. The delicate florals offer a nice light perfumey touch to a light and very clean palate. This is an excellent lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale straw-coloured pour. The nose is lightly sulphurous with a touch of noble hop spiciness. The flavour is actually quite hoppy. Nice zesty spiciness with a note of Saaz spiciness and a little bit of light herbal hoppiness. There is a distinct crackery malt character and a little bit of light sweetness. Really nice balance with a crisp bitterness. Quite a surprise to see a nice crisp lager in BC.

Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium full bodied. Soft rounded with very well developed malt bottom. Very drinkable with solidly exposed golden malts. Solid rendering of Bavarian Helles. Stylistically one of better samples brewed in North America.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with cereal grains and grass. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light grainy malt sweetness. A little better than the macro lagers but still nothing special.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle) Sampled at the Office Lounge in Victoria. Pours a thin white head atop a clear, light golden body. Nose of mashed corn and some biscuit. Nothing terribly exciting here - lacking hops, it has a bready base with more corn malt and grain. No notable German yeast or hops. Final palate of a milk paste watery finish. Nothing I would order of my own volition. Below average.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml brown bottle. Gold pour, some fine haze. Fast fading white cap, just a thin layer on the surface. Grain in the nose, some grass. Taste has grains and leafy hops. Slight grassy aftertaste, low bitterness. Medium to high carbonation, lightish body. Overall, drinkable, dryish and basic German influenced brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pity pack. Bright yellow gold, lots of white bubbly that compresses slowly. Solid grain base, light grass, lemon, nice. Beginning to like this style more and more. I didn’t give the aroma much text love but I dig it. Tasty and thirst quenching. Smooth and light with solid grain malt, tasty fruit with a sneaky bitter cameo, yum. Light carbs, sneaky bitter touch on the finish. Easy drinking goodness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 5%. Bold golden pour with a thick, white foam, decent retention. Aroma is strong malty sweetness, caramel, ripe fleshy fruits. Taste is lightly hopped, rather dry but quite impressive. Crisp, refreshing, and smooth tasting.
