bottle. Poured pale yellow with a scant white head, a creamy sediment was left at the bottom of the bottle. Robust aroma, full of natural barley malt. Texture is a bit watery, but has a heavy quality about it. Bready malt flavour with a slight roasty note. You can actually taste the natural raw ingredients in this beer. I havenít tasted something so interesting in some time.

Some nice grainy malts in the nose. Some pleasant malty cereals in the flavor. A great bready finish. A quality lager.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2006 This is an all malt, well lagered, smooth lager for swigging on hot humid days...something with malty flavor approximating the Dortmunder style according to the brewer. Pours a clear deep gold with a decent frothy cap....light lacing.....aroma is sweet bready malts and some light fruits like a cider. Substantial malt backbone, sticky mouthfeel...big dose Breiss bonlander Munich malt up front with just the right hopping to keep it from being cloying... light tart lemony notes from the hops and a mild sourness from the lager yeast....finish is crisp and biscuity with a pleasant lemony snap at the end. I donít mind this beer at all.....then again I love malty beers and the sweetness of the big malts is kept from getting cloying by judicious use of nobel hops and lager yeast sulfides. A great malty Dortmunder styled lager which I will keep in my beer fridge for warm summer afternoon sessions.

Can- SParkling deep yellow/gold with a frothy but short lived white fizz. The nose on this one is pale malts, some straw, biscuit and a bit of lemon. Tastes of sweet pale malts, cookie dough, a bit of lemon, some bread crust with just a little bit of grassy hops. Has a nice biscuity aftertaste with a sharp hop bite near the end. I think this should be classed as a Dort/Helles.

355 ml can from my boss you stopped at the brewery over the weekend. i can see that im the first one to review this brew in almost 2 years. all of you that have had this in the past i can tell you its nothing like any of your reveiws safe one. pours yellow with a nice everlasting white head. aromas are pure lager malt. flavours are similarily malty. tons of flavour for a lager and no off flavours to speak of. not enough hops but hey there very rarely is. a very well made lager that im glad to say i enjoyed.

On tap at Taps, pale yellow gold color, with a ring of white head, light fruity, bubblegum yeastiness, with some faint peach, mango esters, with a faint honeyed pale, crystal malt accent, with a hint of cereal graininess in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp, fruity, crunchy honeyed pale, pilsener malt character with a peachy, pear, mango, mild flowery hop grassy accent upfront, leading towards a zesty, lemony, lingering hop leafy bittering finish.

Sammy (8678) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
On-tap at the brewpub, fresh batch. A little cheesy aroma in hops. Pale yellow body with carbonation bubbles and a little head on. Lacey. Served on the too cold sid, more complex as it warms. Average mouthfeel, maybe even a tad above that. Aggressive carbonation. Decent drinkability. The taste is a tad funky for a lager.

On tap at taps. Clear yellow, thin white head. Aroma of overripe pineapple, corn, grass and smelly socks. Watery and sweet. Inoffensive. Cold on a hot day itís ok, which is how Iím having it.
