Bottle. Pours clear golden with a diminishing white head. Aroma is flowers, elderberry, piss, citrus, and some herbs in the late finish. Taste is near moderate bitter and light sweet. Body is light+, texture is mild creamy and carbonation is moderate. Finishes hoppy, bitter and dry. Packs a surprisingly amount of flavor - not bad at all.

500ml bottle purchased at the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Clear golden-yellow in colour with a long lasting white head, good lacing. Aroma is a bit fruity, some citrus hops, wheat with some malt sweetness. Flavour is lightly bitter, light juicy hop bite, some underlying caramel malt sweetness. Lightly bitter and dry mouthfeel, medium/light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes hoppy, quite dry, lingering. A total surprise this was, very refreshing.

Reimer96 (1430) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Pours a clear orangish copper with a small white head that leaves little lacing. Aroma of sweet pale malts, cereal, fruity esthers and a touch of spicy wheat. Taste is sweet pale malts, fruity esthers, spicy wheat and a crisp bitterness. Dry finish with a perfect medium high carbonation finish this off nicely!

This actually one of the best lagers I’ve ever had. Not usually my style of choice but this has great flavour and aroma while still being refreshing.
