Bottle. Aroma of corn juice & malt extract. Hardly any head retention. Taste is thin bodied with some off flavors. Terrible.

Kinda crappy. it seems that there was some kind of attempt to make a nice lager, but this seems to fall a little short. bottom line: plain.

Not a big fan of this brew It had some definitely nice caramels in the flavour, but it was definitely skunky and metallic on top of the roasted flavour.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to Joey Capps. Copper body, thin head. Slight toasted malt/herbal hop nose. Toasted up front with a nice herbal finish. As the beer warms the herbalness becomes almost medicinal.

Rich golden color with fine white head. Slight skunky nose with some honey aromas. Light mouthfell with short malty finish. Flavors of malt, light hops, slight acidic note and little interest. Session yes, stunning no.

I was expecting to taste some malt, but was very underwhelmed. Good mahogany colour and malty nose. The beer itself thought is pretty bland offering just a tantalising hint of potential. There was a bit of caramel sweetness, but that was it.

On tap, C’est What, Toronto. Decent amber colour, little head. Very little aroma. Mouthfeel is very watery and thin, with some malt notes and a slight hoppy bite at the end. I thought it was like a pale imitation of Pilsner Urquell.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught) At the Capital City Beer Festival 2004 in Ottawa. Medium, creamy, and highly carbonated head with a deep amber body. Nose is of slight lactic. Milky-malt flavour with a mildly hopped undertone. Above average. One question: Why the sole beer?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little carmel and yeasty aroma. Clear golden/amber color with good head lacing. Initial flavor is very feint. Slightly sweet, vanilla and malts with a stronger carmel finish. Quite fizzy at first. Smooths out well with a little breathing. Good lager.
