Bottle. Nice malt aroma. Pale yellow color with moderate head. Balanced malt and hops flavor - nice body. A very nice pils and much better than the 10%.

I think this is what I had, but frankly I’m guessing a bit. Closest in overall appearance to what is in this picture, but label says "Premium Pils." In any case, Medium gold in color, faintest flecks of orange if you look deep through it, decent head, big bubbles. Sweet flavor, then a slight bread note, and skunky grass hops. Better than this description makes it sound, but not great.

(500ml bottle) Sparkling straw body topped by medium white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grassy, metallic, some bread. Taste is moderately sweet, apple juice, some bread, light metallic in finish. Watery, undercarbonated light body -- no crispness.

Standard lager color, no foam. Sweet aroma with notes of alcohol, not disturbing though. Sweet start, ends with mildly dry and bitter mouthfeel. Thin body, still good basic lager. With more body rates would have been higher.

(500ml can) Purchased at the SLGA Confederation Park store in Saskatoon. Pours a lasting white, frothy head and a highly carbonated deep golden body. Nose of tin, dried fruit and bread. Flavour is far more malty than anticipated, mild hoppiness. Not bad for a canned beer but only average at best.

Bottled, pasteurised. Sunny yellow colour with solid head. Tastes as though it is full of starch with a bread yeastiness. Some lemony acidity.

Golden in colour with grassy aromas and little carbonation. Flavor wise, it starts like a Helles, but develops some odd sweet notes on the finish. Somewhat cloying... could be better.
