Bright clear gold beer with a good white head. Mild marmalade hops on the nose. Palate is light and mildly crispy from the fine carbonation. Clean pale malt. Nice hops - marmalade orange and a little fresh grapefruit and mango. Touch of aniseed before the neutral finish. Nice lager!

Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver; bb 17.10.13
Blond color with small head, a bit dull. Delicate malt aroma with cereal scent, light citrusy, light chamomile. Lean mouthfeel, chewy malt flavor, cereals, soft, and a mild chamomile/citrus touch; correct bitterness.
Old bottle, but nice on the malts.

Ernest (7628) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), moderately hoppy (resin), with notes of diesel fuel, plastic, pears. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Phew. They tried to cover up the nasty fusels and phenols with a lot of hops, but the flaws still shine through! Horrible aftertaste. Strike three from Epic, the worst one Ive had yet.

mkel07 (5742) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUL 20, 2014
Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique June 2013. A little grainy in the aroma but the flavour makes up for it. Golden amber in colour with a soft white head. Okay as far as pilseners go.

hawthorne00 (3852) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2012
Bottle, 9C. Orange with a fine white head that lasts pretty well. Aroma of hay, spices, some lychees, gooseberries, a touch of alcohol. Taste is sweet and boozy with berries, hay, light caramel, grass and spices. A bit throat-burning at the end, but before that its pleasantly soft and slightly creamy in a very pilsener way. Bitterness comes to the fore after a while. Not my sort of beer.
