Pours a Golden yellow, with thin white head. Aroma immediatley reminded me of the outdoors for some reason, a lawn of fresh cut grass perhaps, but on closer inspection decided the aroma is closest to honey or corn syrup. The inital flavor is very sweet, i’m sure due to the smell of honey.
The honey taste gives way to a more hoppy bitter bite, and then that gives way back to a honey after taste. A little too sweet, but all and all a pretty pleasent experience from a local brewery. Nothing to rave about or anything but I would certainly drink one again. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2006
Grassy, floral and earthy hops are notable over sweet and fruity base. Clear golden body is topped by a line of white head that lasts well. Sweet and fruity flavour with fair bitterness. Some honey like sweetness especially in the aftertaste. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Seems more like a golden ale than a lager but what the hey, it’s drinkable enough. Sampled at C’est What. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2006
Draught @ Hostex: Huzzah, another domestic pale lager. o_O Pours yellow, little head. Aroma of honey, slight hops, something mildly earthy. Flavour is somewhat generic, a bit plain. Certainly a step up from, say, Labatt Anything, but not for me. markas101 (2560) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2006
33cl bottle, Shelburne. Golden colour, Sweet tasting with a nice bitterness in the background and lots of malt. Interesting beer definitley worth a try. KingofCastle (210) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 bottle. Not everyone will like this lager, that is for sure. To me, it has some odd tastes that are definitely sweet right upfront in the mouth (molasses, honey, something syrupy, whatever). It reminds of Kalyani Lager from India but not with the same smooth, sweet finish. At best, this mouthfeel taste goes down the tropical pale lager road and at worst it’s like a Pinesol flavour/scent (CAUTION: do not eat salty snacks like peanuts with this beer, it will throw this flavour right off big time!) The backbone of this beer is sweet malts so be prepared. This is growing on me. This is a bold flavour for a lager which kind of works if you ask me. At least this baby stands out from the standard lager crowd in a favourable light.

bottle: Poured a nice golden colour with a white head. A malty and fruity aroma greets the drinker. Somewhat sweet tasting at first with a malty aftertaste. The hops are well balanced, but overall this lager is far too sweet for my taste buds. Lubiere (14424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2006
Hazed golden beer with an extra thick cremy dirty white head. Aroma of spent yeast and peppery celery, again like a missed homebrew. In mouth, a beer with crisp malt, and the rather herbal peppery hops, with yeasty overtones which receede quickly. Again, an infected beer (April 2006).

bottle. pours a slightly foggy orange-golden body with a small white head. the aroma doesn’t have much that would set it aside from a typical generic lager. fizzy water, toasted malt, and honey. sweet cookie flavour, grainy husks, and a light bitter bite in the finish. high carbonation. I’d take this over a mainstream lager any day but that’s not to say that this isn’t bland and uninteresting. HogTownHarry (7352) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle (341ml). Poured clear gold with a small white disappearing head. Aroma of estery toasted caramel, wheat, honey, grains, hardwood resin - very faint, though. Taste exactly the same, only thinner, a little grainier and not as nice. Mouthfeel very watery and flat. The only good thing to say is I didn’t detect corn or adjuncts.
