2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pale yellow lager with a thin white head. Rather fruity malt in aroma. In mouth, faint malt with fresh barley grains, barely hopped, rather thin.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clean and malty lager. We haven’t hear much from this brewery in the longest while, and I hadn’t tried this offering. It is a medium yellow with a tad of white head. The aroma is malty neutral. The taste is a bit malty grainy. There is a dryish aftertaste. It is fairly easy drinking and a serviceable lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 2008-08-10. Fairly muted aroma, light malt. Flavour is fairly clean, pale malts with a light accent of bitterness. Average palate. Decent, but unexciting. 6/3/6+/3/13 - 3.1Draft, Toronto Festival of Beer
July 2004. I rated this fairly highly at the time but don’t remember liking it THAT much. Average lager with fruity and hoppy notes. decent. 5/3/5/3/11 - 2.7 C’est What Festival of Small Breweries

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to hogtownharry! Poured a clear medium golden with a short cap of white head. Aroma was of lighter fruits (sliced pears and apples come to mind) and biscuity malts... very fine for the style. Flavor followed suit, and was on the sweet side... fruits were crisp and refreshing. Body was on the light side. Refreshing and smooth.. with no flaws noted.

[1583-20080810] Tap. Mild yeast grains aroma. Clear, pale yellow brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Fruit juice-esque flavour has mild hints of sweet pineapple juice mixed with vanilla ice cream. Light-medium body. Fair.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2004 Pour gold with nice white crown . Malty aroma mixed with light hop nose , some alcohol was shown . Despite full gold apperance it was rather think and light on flavour . Still well done for a local lager .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear slightly bubbly yellow-gold with a spare diminishing white head. Fresh and sweet aroma of malt, grain and a touch of hops. Flavour of sweet caramel malt, honey, grain, light hops. Body is smooth and refreshing. If I had to nitpick I would say that it’s a little too mild. Surprisingly, this is one of the best lagers I’ve ever had -- no fooling.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2005 Bottle (341ml). Poured a pale, clear light brassy yellow with a decent foamy white head. Frankly in both aroma and taste it’s an okay non-macro lager - not too much corn, some mild hops, with wheat and fruit notes, definitely on the sweet side, but not off-putting. Mouthfeel is surprisingly lively and carbonated considering the bubbled disappeared about five seconds after the pour finished. The carbonation also keeps the slightly excessive sweetness under control, allowing the wan hop portion to surface, resulting in a taste that is refreshing and not at all like a Green Giant product. If I had to order a pale lager, I might just go with this one.
