2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fruity and buttery aroma. Far too much diacetyl for a lager. Clear blonde-golden body with thin, white, fully-diminishing head. Crisp palate with decent carbonation. Some strong diacetyl in the flavour also with a rather yeasty finish. Fairly hoppy with decent bitterness. Light refreshing mouthfeel. Diacetyl would be a bit much in an ale (which this seems more like due to the fruitiness) and is definitely out of place for a lager. On tap at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Taktik_MTL.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample at the brewpub with MartinT, tiggmtl, Taktik_MTL. Very clear gold, touch of head. Corn-sweet, lightly butterscotchy (diacetyl, though not as strong for me as for some), hints of cherry...fairly bland flavor, some fruitiness and hints of hops, decent body.
