Papillon (424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2010
473 mL Can. Hazy orange body with a tenacious foamy white head that wants to cling all over the glass. Aroma of malts and grains, grassy hops, earth, and faint floral notes. Light sweet malts dominate in the flavor; there is a lemony sourness / tartness there that reminds me of a Belgian Kriek (did the brewer do this intentionally? I don’t read it as a negative.) and it expresses most prominently in the aftertaste, followed by a clean refreshing finish. A cloudy lager with a Belgian accent? Definitely my pick for a hot summer day.

lightly hazy orange with a fair foamy white head. smells of light malt, sweet, a little citrusy. extreme lemon flavour... is this infected? overpowering lemonade sweet/sour flavour no malt or hops... i dont know if this is intended or i got a broken can..

Poured from can. Hazy gold colour with decent frothy head. Hops aroma and taste. A little bitter for a lager for my liking. It had a sort of metallic taste as well. Overall, just O.K.

473 mL can. Hazy orange-copper with a lovely white head. Very nice, for a lager. Mild, grassy aroma. Grain and sugar water in the flavour. No off-putting flavours. Crisp, dryish finish. Nothing special, but no real negatives either. Not bad, for a lager - better than most out there.

As a lager this is middle of the road. There really isn’t anything of note in the character.

Spab (4069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2009
473 ml can from OCB Discovery Pack #3. Pours a hazy gold with small white head. Light nose with biscuit and a mild fruity sweetness. Flavour is grassy, with honey and light citrus. Straightforward, solid premium lager.

My hazy notes for this one are simply: apple cores. Not a good sign. This was pretty putrid.

bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2009
12oz via Clint. Rich golden orange color with a little head. Smell like I have my nose in a jar of Ovaltine with some grassy hay. Lemony sweet notes with corn grass and hay.

Scrizz got a shit ton of beer from Canada. Sweet. Faint nose, some light grain. Golden pour, thin head. Grainy, earthy, light sweet. Fizzy and crisp. Its ok. I’d drink more than one if it were local and I was in mood for a lager.
