3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour is deep yellow with a touch of tangerine. Nose: Cream Soda, raw dough, malt. Taste: Light with a barley kick, distant honey notes, distilled water, late grassy charge and the finish is surprisingly long with an metallic note. Fluffly mouth feel. Average stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml can. Pours a clear golden straw with a thick one finger head. Nose- grassy hops, minerals, sweet biscuit malt. Taste- reasonable hop level gives it a decent bite. Thicker malt body then expected. Biscuit malts are a big presence. Not really a crisp refreshing lager that I was hoping for. its not bad, but more of a full bodied lower carbonation lager. Finish is a mix of sweet and dry metallic flavours.

Pours light yellow with fading white head. Neutral aroma. Below average mouthfeel, but smooth and balanced. Mild hops, drinkable though 500 ml is a bit much. Drying.

Nice light tasting pilsner. Could have used a bit more hops in my opinion but still very drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 4.8%. Clear yellow/golden pour with a weak white foam, little retention. Aroma is plain barley, grasses. Very little in terms of floral hops, or malts. Taste is faint sweet malts, and very plain and grainy. As much a pilsner as Molson Old Style, but a drinkable, smooth tasting lager.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours light yellow with light white head. not much smell. tastes of malt. not much hops. not really a pilsner. needs smoother malt, and more crisp hops. not bad though if you don’t call it a pilsner...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Muted aromas of pale malts, herbal hops, and a bit of sulphur. Very mellow in the mouth with a soft malt-pudding flavor. Any hop flavors are very subtle if they even exist at all. Clean finishing and medium bodied. A bit bland, but there’s no weird chemical astringency or adjunct flavors to be found either. One could do much worse in the generic pale lager category.
