Purchased a long time ago, around Christmas at the LCBO, and comes in a beautiful white ceramic 2 Litres bottle with a swing top. Wow... still good after all that time. Pours a golden-brown colour that is clear at first and gets hazy as you pour more. Great foamy-soapy white head that stays a while and creates patchy and chunky lace. Very nice smelling brew with the usual Pils nose and notes of citrus and hop with a touch of honey. Lovely tiny bubble carbonation with a refreshing winter mouthfeel. Magnificent taste of a pilsner with some nice grain, grassy hops and even hints of coffee in the aftertaste. A very well-balanced brew that I would love to try again... but not sure if they are still making this one (or if it will ever come to Canada again). A nice winter pils with a little punch that is nicely spiced. tomthompson89 (1982) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2007

2 liter swing top growler:
Decants an unfiltered murky honey gold with a massive rocky head that settles to a 2 finger lacing cap that lasts the drink.
Nice nose: caramel, fruits spices and some woody earthiness.
Bight fruity spicy character with a wonderful earthiness..dries up in the finish. Not overly complex but like a mellow fruity version of Orval.
A welcome winter warmer.

Bottle (from the november 2005 RB-tasting at Dixens place - notes have been damaged by flooding of my basement, but this was such an insane tasting for me as I was new to such massive tastings, so I gave up on the detailed notes quite early).
