An ultra-premium, all-malt authentic Lager beer at 5% alc./vol. Light gold colour with light grain aromas and a delicate floral and citrus hop nose. A balanced fresh malt flavour and moderate hop bitterness are rounded by deep cold aging. A versatile beer with many foods, but particularly well matched with chicken soups, lobster bisque, vinaigrette salads, chicken dishes, whitefish, shellfish, cream pastas, fruit pies, and light creamy cheeses.

Bottle courtesy of matt7215. Pours gold with a thin white head. Smells of soap, earthy, dry. Tastes fruity and dry with a pils malt backbone.

Appearance is golden with a piss-like white wisp of head. Aroma is slightly nutty, malty, butter, and flowers. Taste is slightly slick, hoppy (floral/grassy). Finish is slick and slightly bitter.

341mL bottle from an in-person trade with matt7215, thanks Matt. Pours a deeper golden with a small white cap, very nice looking. The aroma is very typical of this brewer, very distinctive malt character, a bit of boiling mash, worty, bready and sweet. Nice. Flavour is very reflective of the aroma, a tad creamy, almost like the cream ale, but still lagerish enough. Crisp. Not much hops except for some citrus zing in the finish. Another very solid offering from a fantastic brewer.

[1577-20080810] Tap. Fruity grains aroma has a slight plastic note. Clear, light orange yellow body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Fruity plastic grains continues in the flavour. Medium body. Weird plastic notes are distracting.

Sampler. Golden appearance with a thin white head. You can definitely get the citrus flavours in this beer. Also has a flowery side to it. Pleasant and enjoyable beer.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2008
341ml bottle, 5.0% a/v Pours a rich gold colour, with a smaller head, though its lacing nicely. Aroma is unusually fresh, hops, bready malts, and a bit of fruitiness. The taste is very nice and fresh, very nice malt taste with some complexity which backs into a delicious hoppiness and then a clean aftertaste. A very surprisingly full mouthfeel for a beer like this too. Not bad at all!

pootzboy (1572) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Bottle: Puts a clear gold lager in the glass with a decent frothy cap that lasts and laces well. Fresh grainy malts and grassy hops...no sweetness in the aroma Good dose of bready specialty carapils and ambers in the front,...hops chyme in late but balance with their grassy-woody notes...clean swift finish biscuit after taste. A well made straight ahead Canadian lager made the way they were before EP Taylor buggered commercial brews. When fresh this is one of the better lagers on TBS shelves.

chainman (104) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2007
An excellent lager. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a well-made premium lager. Malts are right up front and in the finish. Tastes great, certainly no skimping on the ingredients or process. At its competitive price point, you wonder why people pay the same, if not more, for Molson Canadian. It simply tastes "real," that’s the best word I can think of.
