It has been said by many brew masters, water makes the beer. We cant help but agree. This refreshingly light lager is brewed with 25,000 year old iceberg water harvested from Newfoundlands 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

Thanks Derek for bringing back. Not as bad as suspected, it is watery. With an almost-watery colour and some lace and soapy head. A drop of hop, a bit more of malt. Not offensive in the least. It in fact could but drunk.

2014-08-15. Crisp pale yellow body with a small white head fades. Aroma is sweet, with an earthy mushroom like character. Flavour is sweetish, simple pale malt. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Pretty dull, but not terrible. Interesting to try. Bottle from NFLD via my parents

33cl bottle via a friend. Thin creamy white head. Clear pale golden pour. Very malty aftertaste. An ok lager

JorisPPattyn (9878) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2009
Clear metallic golden beer; fine & dense white head. Dry malts/grains nose for an instant, then the ominous smell of rotting gras rises... lightstruck. First taste nothing but CO fizziness, slightly sourish. Then dull grassy malts, again with sulphury decay notes. Very fizzy MF, and utterly empty. Why the Dickens did they need to ruin the icebergs purest water with just enough malt and hops to make catty lightstruck possible? Clear glass abomination. Thanks for hauling it in, nonetheless, Stef C!

[6628-20140815] Bottle. Straw yeasty plastic aroma. Clear, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Straw cardboard flavour. Light body. Terrible but Im glad to have tried it -- love the name. (4/2/3/2/8) 1.9

kraddel (7494) - some beerplace, 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 .

kramer (6576) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Bottle, shared by jercraigs CGBD 2014. Pretty well up there (or should I say down there?) with the worst of the macro Pale Lagers out there. Poured a pale light straw body with a minimal fizzy white head. Nose is cardboard, corn, straw, and maybe a touch of pale malt. The flavor is much the same, what little of it there is. Not convinced this is old, I just think the cardboard flavor is the natural taste of this. Light bodied and fizzy with a watery finish. Another awful Pale Lager, but it is a Province tick.
