COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Remarkably smooth for a full-flavoured beer. Our founder’s intention was to combine the refreshing taste of a German lager with the distinctive taste of an English Ale without blending the two.

Jayseppi (140) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2014
English hop aromas, some DMS and some white bread dough. Taste is muted. Grainy with some grassiness from the hops and finishes balanced. Golden colour with a quickly dissipated head. Not worth revisiting.

Hidden_Pooch (261) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Blah. Aroma is of grain skunk. Tastes much the same with some sweet hay and noticeable skunk flavour. Very light sweet body. This is a bad beer.

Pours light straw yellow with a small white top. Aroma is light skunk, light grain and some noble hop. Taste is slightly smooth, oxidation, and some noble hop.

Tricker (271) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2014
Bière blonde de 5 %. Odorat amer et sucré. Aucun col au versement. Petit goût sucré, avec une finale crémeuse en bouche. Également, il y a une amertume présente, mais elle s’estompe vite, remplacé par une finale de torréfaction. Pas d’épice particulière, petit soupçon de toffee. Excellente !

Helsdon (111) - Toronto, CANADA - APR 21, 2014
Funny how I always seem to not bother to rate with meh to crappy beers. But with this I’ll try to fix that. Pours golden with white head that dissipates rather quickly. Smells of malts and grains. Tastes of malts, a little bitterness, not a lot else. It’s beer, and you could drink it by the bucket, but really why would you want to. Rating: Meh.

DandyLion (513) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2014
Bottle at airport lounge in Toronto. It's a pale golden colour with an ever so slightly malty aroma. It's got ok body compared to what I was expecting. It's not great though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scent of hops and yeast. Clear gold colour. Abrupt bitterness without much discernible flavour. Medium body with mild carbonation. Not my sort of beer.

Poured with minimal head and an orange hue. Basic taste with fair amount of fizz. Ok macro brew to consume while watching sports.

[[Style tick]] Pours a light golden with a small head with low retention but that still offers good lacing. Aroma is hard to describe as it is almost nonexistent but I’ll venture and say that it smells of creamed corn and light floral hops. Taste isn’t too much better with some really light cereals and a lightly (almost to homeopathic level) bitter finish. Mouthfeel is watery, carbonation level medium. As people said, this is as close to a cream ale than a 18% imperial stout would be. Boring to death...
