This lager poured a clear medium amber colour with a big, beautiful, off white head. Thick creamy head with nice lacing. To the nose there are scents of sweet malts, toast, light grassy hops and very, very faint vinegar. First sip was slightly watery with flavours of malt and porridge. Finish was thin though with very slight hop flavour ontop of a whopping malt.
Modest head and clear dark gold body. Smells of wet cardboard, some people might like sucking on cardboard but I’ve always found it a little tedious. Flavour is heavy cloying sugar with vague malt hints. Like wow, a boring lager is hard to mess up but this is a mess. Malt liquor flavours should not be jumping into my head but there they are.... there. they. are. rosenbergh (11949) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2017

Clear deep golden color with a tiny white head.
Malt and some alcohol in the aroma.
The flavor is metal, dryness and malt.

Pours a clear golden color with a small head. Aroma is clove and grain, some faint buttery tones, grassy hops. Flavor is slick grassy, grainy, some very distant peach notes, bread. Not good.
47,3 cl can @ Timo A’s Maritimes Tasting. Thanks!HogTownHarry (7086) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - JUL 12, 2017
Aroma has buttery malt, cereal and menthol. Flavour has cereal, starchy tones, some biscuits and menthol. Sweet, starchy and bulky, not good.
January 21, 2014 - with blankboy, jercraigs & mabel - 473ml can. Gold - oily looking refractive and clear, smallish bubbly white head. Yep - "premium" lager aroma - some alcohol, oily grain, apple and grass. Taste is simple honey ’n heather - solid, clean. Average body, chewy, decent carbonation, finishes quick and dry. Not bad!

Bright dark straw, almost gold color, with some powerful activity. White 2 finger head with good retention that last for 5 to 10 minutes, with a nice amount of legs.
Aromas of sweet grains and burnt sugar with a faint floral and lemony feel. Flavors of zesty citrus, roasted malt, faint caramel, floral and herbal spices. A little grassy and quite floral. Nice sweetness and great sharpness.
Slick medium body with super prickly carbonation. Light and short finish, ending with a sugary roasted malt feel, faint noble spices, and hint of lemon lingering on the tongue.
Overall a very good quality craft. Good flavors and very refreshing, while the carbonation is a little excessive. Good balance but feels a little light. At last, a good lager! No adjunct feel, the way a real lager should always taste. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2016
Can purchased at the brewpub. Nice dark golden colour with a thin white head that sticks around. Aroma is on the sweet side - sugary cereal grain with hint of corn, although the can indicates it’s an all-malt beer. A slight herbal note to indicate there are some hops, but sweetness dominates. The flavour has a bit more balance to it - still too sweet and grainy for my personal taste, but a hit of herbal and grassy hops in the finish. Sticky on the palate. All in all - average, and not especially "Premium". cards04 (2943) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 22, 2016
Pours a dark golden. Aromas of corn and toasted grain. Similar flavours with some sweetness and nice bitterness. Decent for a pale lager. northropfrye (3732) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 20, 2016
Clear yellow, slightly orange body, lots of bubbles, fizzy white head. Very sweet grain aroma. Taste is also far to the sweet side. Not hop balance noticeable. Still is has flavour and is pleasant enough. MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2015
473 ml can from NB Liquor. Pours a golden orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is light malt, grain. Taste is pretty much the same + grass. Mediocre beer.
