3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out a slightly hazy dark amber brew with a small amount of sticky tan bubbles. This tastes like a hoppy lager. Smells like one too. Nice grassy aroma, light tropical notes, quite nice. It has a mix of grass, grain, weak fruit, ok bitterness and almost zero sweetness. There’s a lot of flavour here but not much complexity. Drinkable and sort of enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a light amber/orangey color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light citrus hops notes with light dry crisp malt notes. Taste is also dominated by dry and subtle citrus hops with some light dry and crisp malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. A bit light on the hops side for my taste but well brewed nonetheless.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can. Mine only said 5.3% ABV. Really nice looking pour, unfiltered light to medium brown, big foamy head, nice lacing. Citrus hop and amber malt aroma. Taste is a little more piney, caramel malt is present but a little overpowered by the hops. Thinnish body, but not watery. A little flat. Overall, not a bad attempt at an IPL, maybe not as good as the Sam Adams.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Daves in Toronto. Too much of a pale lager in this beer despite the hops in the name. A nice amber colour, the beer had little hint of hops nor any hints of citrus.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A surprising brew. The nose has a noted hopped up effect with nice resin and citrus quantities. Mild caramel and toated malts with a finish of moderate hoppiness and a nice bitterness. A good brew

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - 473ml. Beautiful cloudy shestnut body with a thick off-white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and piney hints. Its hoppy taste is slightly misbalanced. It carries grainy and some weird rotten herbs notes. Ends with a short bitter/grainy finish. A bit disappointing.

341 ml bottle. Unclear brown-ish orange, small lasting white foam. Lager malt aroma with some hop. Light herbal spiced floral citrus hopped lager malt taste. Average carbonation, light body, moderately hopped. A good starter for those Lagerboys looking to expand their horizons. LBW (Lagerboys Wary)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber/orange with a short white head. Nose of caramel, grain, bread, herbal hops. I’m going to say this is balanced. In no way is this an imperial pils. Some tropical fruit in the finish.
This is very grainy, and average.
