3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341mL bottle: Orange-amber body, well carbonated with little to no head. Smells of grain and hops. Flavor is full and well rounded combination of hops and grain, traces of pepper, smooth nutty finish. The mouthfeel is slightly watery and carbonated but still very crisp and refreshing. This is good stuff. The label boasts that this brew won awards across the globe. Frankly, I think this may be stretching the truth, but it’s still good stuff.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Nice golden body with instant-fading white bubbly head. Fair malty aroma with some hoppy notes. Good malty taste that carries some bready hints. Ends with a short bitter finish. Decent micro lager.
