Poured from can, sort of a golden color little head, not much carbonation. Some floral notes, some maltyness, a little on the bitter. An ok beer to drink, not something I would drink all the time. This is the only beer this brewer makes, perhaps that is a good thing.

3FG - 3 fired guys - a nice marketing stunt! Unfortunately the beer is rather average, just a lager, nothing to get excited about.

Poured from bottle. Aroma of dough and yeast. Pours a clear pale with white head. Taste is light bitter. Light body and thin texture. Not much to it, refreshing, but kind of boring.

mzaar (2291) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2015
Fat @ Brewpub, Toronto. Klar guldfärgad med ett vitt skum. Dofter av gräs, örter och malt. Smaken är oerhört ren och frisk, inte så konstigt med tanke på att ölen kommer direkt från tillverkningen så att säga. Malt, frukt, gräs och örter hittas.

Kauge (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle at Tartu College cafeteria in Toronto. Bottled Aug 31 2015. Pours clear golden with loads of bubbles, and a white, fluffy head. The nose is, well, papery with some malt sweetness. Flavour’s similar, but less as papery, and some "not unpleasant" bitterness. Crisp but not overcarbonated. Okay for a macro pils.

It is a pilsner. Tastes like a pilsner, smells like a pilsner, looks like a pilsner, and is cold.

Ferris (8954) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2015
Draft - Light grainy notes and sweetness. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light biscuit and a touch of bitterness.

Draft, at the Boreal Collective opening in Toronto. Solid lager, tasty and crisp. Hoppier, stronger lager. Nice

KoNrRiI (867) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2015
0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, instantly-vanishing head. Aroma of DMS, metal, and delicate pale malts. Taste is sweet, delicately malty, DMS-y. Light body, thin texture, and average carbonation. Finish is buttery in flavor and quite long - the only good part of the beer. Overall a pale lager like many others, hard to call it a pilsner which it purports to be.

Great Pilsner in the Czech variety. Goes down smooth. This is the only beer that this brewery does. They do it well. MB

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This crisp Pilsener’s lightly honeyed cereals dominate the flavor profile, taking on straw allusions in the finish.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A film of foam sits atop the clear golden.
-This is underhopped for the style.
-Mouthfeel is lean and bubbly, which makes for great drinkability.
-This may be too linear to my tastes, but it is fresh and well defined, so quite enjoyable.
