2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473ml can. Pours a clear gold with an off-white head. Aroma is wet straw, faint caramel, grassy, apple. Smells quite a bit like a predictable Euro-lager. Taste is almost all malt with slight sweetness, and a bitter citrus finish. Was expecting a little more kick considering it’s "dry hopped". Not bad, but not worth the price.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from LCBO. I would be careful calling your beer "grand" unless it is. Sure its named after the river, but i live near the river and I know that it ain’t. The date code was fresh, but the aroma was "off" and a little sour. there was a little more body in this then I had expected. The balance of sweet and hops was off. A decent hot weather ultra-cool guzzeler, but not all that.. well.... grand.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance of a normal lager, a bit more flavour then other lagers tasted, overall decent beer and I would try again

Nice head and good retention for a lager. Regular OK quality malts, boring hops but the dry-hopping helps to enjoy a bit more the beer... Taste of boiled veggies.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 4.0% as Trafalgar Grand Lager. Vinous and mildly grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour has a good maltiness, distinct paper and vegetable notes. Not as bad as it sounds, though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
473mL Can in the LCBO OCB discovery pack. 4%. Clear yellowish pour with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Mild retention. Aroma is grassy and sweet, with no ’Saaz’ hop aroma to speak of. Taste is mild sweet malts, fairly grainy and otherwise devoid of flavour. Very boring, and very bland in the finish. I wouldn’t pair this with food, though I might drink it on a patio if nothing else suitable were offered.
