Bottle - thanks to tupalev. Clear, bright light gold colour with a small, fluffy white head. Fresh aroma of bready malt, citrus and grassy hops. Crisp mouthfeel. Perfectly balanced flavour of sweet (but not too sweet) malt, fruit notes, and herbal/grassy hops. Dry, refreshing finish. Really nice stuff! bjakk (828) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - NOV 21, 2012

Pours a clear, bright yellow/gold with small white head. Mild aroma of grass, honey and bread. Flavour is a plesant mix of grains and grass with a nice honey sweetness. Fairly light body. Went on a bit of a pilsner tasting rampage. pootzboy (1824) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2005
I deleted my review of this beer from last year because I felt that the changes done to it, basically, made it a whole new beer....so a new review is in order.
I am aware the brewer is now using soft spring water and better hops in reformulating this German style pils. It certainly had a great deal of impact as this is now one of the tastiest ( if not the best) Ontario micro pils.
Poured into my glass as a pale straw, slightly hazed lager with a nice fluffy white cap that lasts and laces the glass well. Champagne-like carbonation with spirals of small bubbles coming of the glass bottom. The nose is filled with a pleasant blend of musty fruits, herbs and sweet bready malt aromas. Medium-light body has good malt pronouncement balanced well with herbal hops and a unique musty fruit tone ( from the yeast). The finish is lightly bready and very citrusy with a slight bittering aftertaste.
A very pleasnat blend of tastes, very drinkable and satisfying for those who like malt accented Gernam pilsners. This will be a standard summer quaff for me.

The aroma is awesome for pilsner
Honey and malts
The taste has that familiarity of F & M about it
Honey and I don’t know but wow is it good one of the best pilsners I have ever had

Bought a can from the beer store. Pours clear gold with a big white head. Aroma is malts, cereal and honey. Flavours are grains, grass and honey. Light body with medium carbination. Really nice beer. Barnabus (52) - Niagara, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2008
On tap at the Wooly in Guelph. Everyone else has described the appearance well. The aroma and taste are moderately malty, grassy and yeaty. Quite nice overall but nothing that really distinquishes it. Frothmeister (841) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
341ml bottle. Pours a very light yellow, minimal head. Aromas of honey, white grape, peach. The taste is white grape too, slightly grassy. Sweet finish, a little pencil lead, with faint bitter hops. I’m not a lager guy, but this is pretty decent. Would buy again when the weather turns warm. JoeMcPhee (10129) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2010
Pale golden-straw pour with a thin white head. The nose is a little bit straw-like. Sort of crackery with a touch of light chewiness. Bready with crackery pils malt. Very clean and fairly tasty. cluxy (3) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2011 does not count
Dark golden, a bit cloudy, white frothy head. Smells of apple juice. Floral hops, lemon with a hint of sweetness, lots of light bubbles, almost champagne-like. A mostly crisp finish with a bit of sour zing left on the tongue.
