With our first offering, Original Organic Lager, we've used only imported organic New Zealand Hallertau Hops and Breiss Organics 2-Row Brewers Malt to create a uniquely refreshing lager with a distinct European flavour. We think it's a perfect complement to your healthy lifestyle and exceptional taste.

Pint can pours a bright pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma of sweet dry grassy hops, malt, and yeast. Light grain and malt flavor, slight hop bitterness and yeast. Solid drinkable lager!

16 ounce can into lager glass, no can dating. Pours slightly hazy pale straw color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Okay aromas with balanced pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with decent strength. A bit estery, but not too bad. Taste of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light herbal/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors in the taste with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is a very solid Euro pale lager style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and clean to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

Drank from bottle. Skunky aroma, almost like a moosehead if you have had one of those. Taste is slightly sweet, lager, finishes thin and watery. Meh

On tap. Clear gold yellow colour. Mute aroma with corn and Noble hops. Light tasting. Watery and forgetful.

New England Bucket List Trip #141. Keg at the brewpub, Ottawa location. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with a thin creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grassy hops and pale grainy malt. The taste is grainy, doughy malt, mild floral hops. Medium bodied, refreshing.

Poured from bottle. A refreshing lager, but not really that special. Was expecting a bit more from it, maybe it is just the lager style.

As a lager fan I was disappointed by this beer’s flavour. However perhaps that’s due to it’s organic composition.

12oz bottle into an English pint. Pours a very light straw colour with pillowy, quickly-dissipating head. Nose is rather unpleasant: sour apple, and I’ll echo someone’s earlier damp cardboard note, but more likely bready yeast. Taste is a bit better; still green apple, but also a bit of malty sweetness mixed in. Light and crisp. That initial scent is off-putting, though.

Bottle to Sam Adams Boston Lager glass, the beer pours a transparent piss yellow with barely any head. Aroma is really odd...sour funk, sulfur, citrus...smells more like cider than beer. Taste is watery and has the off sour bit backed by grassy hops and barely anything for malt. The beer is obviously palatable...with medium carb and thin body joined by watery flavours anyone could drink this and like it. However, to me, this is a shitty beer. Literally flavourless.
