tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2005
Very mild herbal aroma with some fruity notes. Clear golden body with plenty of carbonation is topped by a fleeting, fizzy, white, fully diminishing head. Mild grainy pils malt flavour with very light finishing bitterness. Light body with very strong, crisp carbonation that borders on aggressive. Enjoyed on tap in the Maple Leaf Lounge at Vancouver Airport.
