Very fresh-tasting. Good bready malt and pleasing hop note. I’m not a huge fan of ’premium lagers’ but this is an acceptable example.

Can from matt7215. Thanks for another uncommon beer! Pale gold with a frothy white head. Aroma is bready with some grassy notes. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is bready with some citrus and grass. Finish is lightly sweet and slightly bitter. Leaves the mouth quite clean. Drinks very well.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light golden lager with collapsing white head. Grassy aroma with chalky perfumy notes. Crisp malts with sweet finish, and german styles hops in mid mouth. Again, chalky mouthfeel.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from LCBO. A serviceable lager, more for a warm day. Light yellow with a large dissapearing white head. Neutral aroma. A tad below average mouthfeel. A mild bitterness, just keeping the sweetness at bay. Decent balanced for a minimal use of ingredients. Drying finish.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden pour. The aroma is lightly sweet and grainy. A hint of odd sweetness as it warms up. Some definite DMS. In spite of the flaws, it still seems drinkable enough.

TFOB. Pale orange, slight hops aroma with a nice bitterness. Some interesting undercurrents of flavour. Booth guy said this was formerly the steam?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can, brought to me by my buddy Robbie. Pours a deep golden with a huge bubbly head that shows surprising retention. Sweet grainy aroma. Clean grainy palate with just the right sweetness, and a nice leafy hop kiss in the finish. Nice smooth mouthfeel too. I haven’t had many lagers in the past year or so, and the last couple I’ve tried have sat really well with me. I’d keep this on hand for my non-adventursome beer buddies.

[3510-20101205] 473mL can. Grainy light fruity notes in the aroma. Clear, yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head. Light bitter grainy yeast flavour has a light sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Drinkable but not great.
