Tap. Clear yellow color, short head. Aroma of skunky hop, some grass, slight hop. Bit bitter taste. Below average.

Pours a clear straw colour with a robust head. Aroma notes include cereals, sawdust, caramel, and peppery. Tasting notes include light honey, slight floral, sweet cereals. The malts in this beer creep on the edge of being cloying but are contained enough that the beer works. A peppery finish is nice. This is a decent lager, better than the macro crap that moxies serves.

golden yellow with no head and blatantly appaeent artificial carbonation. smells and tastes o’ corn with cheap hops. watery, thin mouthfeel and a lingering weak bitter malt aftertaste.

Atheist_Peace (884) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
On tap at the Henry House out of morbid curiosity. I’m floored that this shite has such a relatively high rating. Pours the colour of fresh urine with minimal white head. Smells of rotting apple juice and wet hay. Tastes like rusting aluminum and sweet hay. Decidedly vile.

En fût au Moxie’s. Couleur jaune or, mousse blanche. Arôme de grains et houblon...un peu tchèque. En bouche, grains et herbes. Finale un peu amère et malt. Pas mal bonne.

I had this as a draft at Moxie’s in Halifax, but Henry House claimed to have it on tap, too. Faint malted grain aroma. Golden lager colour body that was completely clear. Ample white head with tight bubbles. Surprising amount of lacing for a lager. Taste is sweet malt, a light sourness with some cereal on the finish. Crisp, light body. Overall, much better than a typical macro lager. I’d recommend trying it if you happen to find yourself at Moxie’s

Pint on tap at Moxie’s was a pale golden color with moderate white head and spots of lacing. Aromas of grain and grass. Taste is light malty sweetness and a cheap hoppy finish. An average lager, very similar to the macros with a slightly cleaner finish.

Metalchopz (2117) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2011
Tried on my first visit to Moxie’s, right before seeing Tron 3D at the theatre. Pours a clean golden colour with a small head and a bit of lacing. The scent is of sweet malt and this reflects on the taste, which is sweet with a grain flavour. This has a mild pilsner-like aftertaste with I like. Nice to see a smaller brewery making beer for a chain restaurant (instead of the big macros).

Pours golden yellow. Dull skunky aroma. Clean and crisp. Slightly hopy. And floral very nice lager. I’m impressed.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 22, 2010
On tap at Moxies North Edmonton. 5%. Clear, golden yellow pour with a hefty white head with staying power. Aroma is inoffensive, mild hops. Taste is mildly hoppy, grassy, mild sweet malts. Clean mouthfeel, smooth finish. Plain jane European style lager/pilsner that delivers an inoffensive tasting offering. Nothing exciting here.
