2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this at Feenies Restaurant - Mr. Iron Chef B.C and local celebrity Rob Feenie’s Restaurant. As I waited over an hour for my over-rated burger this beer was the only saving grace. Golden body, smooth and fresh. Light malts and hops and nicely balanced. A little light but refreshing nonetheless. Skip Feenies and head to Modern Burger 3 or 4 stores away for a better Burger!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2006 Bright golden colour. Light herbal hop aroma, hay-like with faint pale malt background. Clean body, light bitterness, fresh bread notes, with herbal, slightly hay-like, slightly earthy hop notes. Off-dry finish. The name is a good description as this compares more to the lighter svetles than to the full-on pilsners.
