Cloudy pale golden pour. The nose is a little bit sulfury with a distinct lemony character on the back. Quite lean with a very clean light pale malt base and a touch of graininess. Quite nicely hopped with a little peppery bite on the finish. Well-lagered (like all of their lagers) and light bodied. Easy to put these back in some pretty serious quantity. Light bitterness but clearly made in the pilsner style. Pretty nice stuff. Lubiere (13915) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
A light blonde lager with a thin lacing off white head. Aroma of sake, lemongrass, a bit of lactic points and pepper. In mouth, a smooth lager with grassy hops and pepper, chalky notes, lighter but quaffable. On tap at brewpub, August 6 2010. Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
On Tap. Solid, but average. A great pub brew that goes very with the food served onsite. Light, grassy and sweet malty. Drinkable but forgettable. I would prefer a more robust and malted version. thorongil2 (3076) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2010
(tap) clear very pale yellow with tall white head; aroma starts with citrus, then a bit funky; clean, balanced, refreshing taste - more like wheat than lager Spab (3846) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Pours a cloudy, ultra pale straw yellow with good-sized white head. Sweet lemon, grain and pepper aroma. Taste is lightly lemony with real pepper presence towards the end. Light side of medium body. Pleasant and different.

On tap at Duggans. Very light tasting. Somewhat bland for my liking. Very much prefer a beer with more "bite" to it. VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2010 On tap at Magpie - came a very pale, but slightly hazy golden. Thick, small white cap. Aroma fruity, yeasty, and a touch funky. Rice comes through in the flavour, but in a proud way, not hidden, adjunct-style. It is on show here. Gains grassy-bitter hoppiness as it warms. Not a favourite style of mine, but this is a very well-done example, and would be a lovely summer sessioner. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2010
[2666-20091221] Tap. Sweet mushy banana bread yeast aroma. Slightly hazy, pale orange yellow body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. More mushy banana yeast in the flavour. Medium body has a mild tonic water feel to it. Wow, great banana bread characteristics, really interesting.

Aroma of mixed fruit, malt and spice, hazy yellow, tiny white head. Flavour is a musty malt,those hops give a most distinctive exotic punch. Light bodied, well balanced. A simple little beer, yet very unique!
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with a small white head. Interesting, if not great, aroma of rice (sweet rice?), a hint of pepper and floral notes -- It’s sweet but I’m not sure from what. Flavour, again, of rice along with very light hops, grain and malt -- not bad, it’s not unflavourful. Average bodied. Not awesome but it has character, and it’s good with food.
