3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2016 500ml bottle in Cape Breton. Pours a chill hazed golden yellow with a finger of white head. Aroma has notes of caramel, nuts, almost a touch of smoke, bread, and faint roast dark fruits. A lot darker flavours than the colour would lead. Taste is balanced with mild darker caramel, grain, traditional hops, and traces of dark fruits. Medium-full body with a medium carbonation. Fuller in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall a lot more darker notes than I was expecting but very good.dark fruits, caramel, and almost a smoke.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden body with excellent clarity but a weak head. The aroma seems a little off but the flavor is quite good, leans to the hoppy side more than the average Canadian pilsner.
Medium body with somewhat crisp carbonation.

Got this in the Canadian BIF. Pours foggy straw yellow with a moderate white pillow. Aroma is sweet grains and light hop. Taste is much the same, solid beer. A little too sweet for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
This balanced Pilsener aligns cushy, lightly honeyed cereals with peppery hops, leading to a bittersweet finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty golden.
-This is a textbook North American-made Pils.
-The soft carbonation and higher-than-usual sweetness combine for an unauthentic texture.
-Peppery hops develop a nice bitterness.
-Drinkability is high.
On tap at a restaurant in Halifax.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Parrsboro. It pours clear golden with a decent white head. The nose is soft, rather doughy, grass, mild sweetness and cereal. The taste is crisp, bitter, minerals, grassy, white bread and just a touch of spice with a dry finish. Medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Good bitterness to it. Solid lager bier.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is fragrant clove hop notes and sweet malts. Taste is light sweet malts with light honey and caramel notes. Fairly well balanced hoppiness but not overly complex. Some moderate creaminess. Appearance is a clear gold with a bubbly head that retains fairly well.
