UPDATED: JUN 13, 2016 On tap in Lunenburg.

Enticing sweet and bready aroma. The flavor partially follows but is mildly bitter and of lower quality.
Mouthfeel: smooth; well carbonated; medium body.
Overall: Solid, clean, well-crafted but rather unexceptional.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased at NS Liquor on my trip to Nova Scotia. Pours a rich golden colour with a very light amber hue. Nice creamy off-white head with decent retention and some more creamy lacing. Aromas are quite grainy with some hay and mild sweetness. The taste is pretty much the same, but with the hop showing in the finish. Light grass, but with a touch of what seems like adjunct or chemical hints. The rest is not bad, but not like written on label "Premium", nor "Spéciale".
