Bouteille 275ml. De couleur jaune et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés, léger de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) aux notes florales avec des traces de miel. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux notes aqueuses. Goût de grains de malt pâle légèrement sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute des notes de maïs, de riz bouilli, de miel ainsi que quelques traces de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve légère amertume de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) aux notes florales. Post-goût court-moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux aux faibles notes florales ainsi qu’avec des notes de grains sucrés.

cfrancis (2699) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
Pours a pale crystal clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is faint cereal hop and grain. Taste is thin bodied but fairly tasty pale ale. Lightly malted and light floral and cereal hop.

Metalchopz (2606) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
Smaller 275ml single bottle (luckily, one was alone beside their 6-pack) from the LCBO. Pours a light golden colour with a small white head that disappears quickly. Real cereal malt scent... yeah, the real stuff - no corn. Pretty decent aromas for a light beer. Light-bodied and mildly carbonated. The taste though is kind of weird. Lightly malty, but with rice (it seems) in the aftertaste. Too bad the nice cereal present in the nose is not really showing in the taste. Still, a better than most macro light beers.

Ontbeertaster (2348) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle, pours bright yellow colour, really nothing special, it tastes a little better as you drink more. But not one I would likely have again. Pretty basic beer

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2013 on tap at the brew pub. clear golden with a white head. some lacing. clean light malt aroma with minimal hopping. the flavours is also very clean, refreshing, the soriachi ace hops add some lemony flavour and bitter the finish out nicely. one of the best pale lagers ive ever had. //////////////////////////////////////////////// THE BREWPUN CLOSED YOU COULD ONLY GET THIS IN BOTTLES AND THEY ARE ALL BUTTER BOMBS. DO NOT BUY THIS IN BOTTLES, DROPPED RATING FROM A 3.7 TO A 2.7

TheJester (2168) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2013
275 mL bottle. Really pale. Thin ring of head. Wheat in the aroma. And sorachi, I guess. Weird taste is butter, honey, lemon. Something like that. Dry. Not my thing, really.

Fred82 (2115) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
275ml bottle from LCBO.
Appearance : Clear pale yellow with a small white head. Light lacing.
Aroma : Cheap grain with honey and very very light hops. Very light citrusy notes. Corn and other stuff.. smells like a macro.
Taste : Cheap lager, corn and light honey. Light citrusy notes. Grainy finish, not much bitterness.
Overall : Not good at all. Shame on them for making you think it’s going to be hoppy by calling this Sorachi lager when in reality hops are not even there. Nose is full of cheap grain and junks. Taste not better. Not good.

(tap) clear very pale yellow with tall white head; aroma starts with citrus, then a bit funky; clean, balanced, refreshing taste - more like wheat than lager

pootzboy (1635) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2011
A very pale dry lager. Decent cap for a "dry" (rice) lager.... Aroma is spicy from the Sorachi hops and the rice gives a faint fruity-cereal note. Spritzy, dry, clean, nice sharp dry finish. Great little patio beer for quaffing a few on hot days. A Pale dry (rice) beer micro brewed the right way - decent flavor for such a pale dry beer.
