COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It has been said by many brew masters, “water makes the beer.” We can’t help but agree. This refreshingly light lager is brewed with 25,000 year old iceberg water harvested from Newfoundland’s awe-inspiring icebergs which offer some of the purest water on earth. Incredibly crisp and refreshing light North American style lager. Winner of a bronze medal in the 2014 Canadian Brewing Awards ’North American Style -Premium Lager’

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 After becoming more beer aware, I now realize I was a bit to lenient on this product mainly because it was a local product. To be honest, it’s not as good as I thought it was the first time I reviewed it. I still like it much better than most of Quidi Vidi’s other products though. Aroma: slight smell of corn (meh), Pours light urine color witbh a quick evaporating head, slightly sweet taste with a tweet aftertase. Not too offensive, but not overly great either.

kraddel (7870) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2016
Pours clear blonde, nearly no head. Smell is bit malty. Taste is bit malty, maltsyrup. Rather weak. Fresh, easy drinkable. Weak though. Ok .

BreWedge (531) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 21, 2016
341 ml bottle @ Piatto Pizza St. John's, NL. Pours a very pale yellow with a small, fine white head. Aromas are hard to discern, beer was very cold at first. After slight warming I would describe it as a stale smell. Tastes are light grain with maybe a light hop profile on the back end. Light body, mild bitter feel on the tongue, short finish. Unremarkable light lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Draft - Light sweet almost a touch of grain. Clear straw with a decent white head. Light and sweet with a touch of apple.

It’s an interesting idea and not bad for the style, but certainly isn’t something I’d rush to try.

Cimbasso (889) - - MAY 10, 2016
Sampled on draught at the bar at St. John's International Airport. Served extremely cold in the North American tradition. A light golden colour with a white head. Highly carbonated with some grain aromas. The taste is of sweet malts with a hint of straw followed by a mixture of mild cardboard and bubblegum flavours. Quite clean tasting and refreshing but little depth to the flavour.

fidemaster (313) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Aroma of mild malt. Pale yellow color. Starts off sort of sweetish, finishes sort of skunky. Yep thats it.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
341 ml bottle from a liquor store in Newfoundland via my parents, served cold in a small shaker glass. Faintly metallic with light grainy sweetness, a little bread, faintly sour, possibly a little skunk. Medium body, fairly full carbonation. Sweet grains, faint noble hops, still a touch...sour?; basically dry, low bitterness, slightly sweet, grainy finish. Beatty bottle and concept. Boring beer.

deanso (10070) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - OCT 6, 2015
33cl bottle via a friend. Thin creamy white head. Clear pale golden pour. Very malty aftertaste. An ok lager

Bottle at Campground Brewdown 2014. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft grain on the nose. Medium bodied, grainy and sweet. Long grainy finish.
