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’

Bottled sample from friend in Newfoundland. Very light tasting. Like a lite beer. Not bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. Nose is light lemon and cereal notes with maybe a hint of herbal hops. Flavor follows with grain, light vegetal and overripe lemon. It isn’t bad but is kind of boring and nothing makes me want to keep drinking it.

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

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.

asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
[bottle] Weak hay aroma with some fresh, herbal noble hops and a touch of sweet base malt. Crystal clear pale straw under a quickly receding white, thin cover that does not form lace. Pleasant, though weak, almost crisp base malt and noble hops flavour. Boring but not offensive. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, lingering hops and sour finish.

Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Just about the palest pale lager I've ever tried. Hardly any colour, aroma or taste, but it oddly works. Reminds me of putting snow in my mouth and letting it melt. I can see why people who favour strong stouts or IPAs would have no use for this beer, but it is bizarrely refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Oakes (18794) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2017
Pale. No head. Some malt nose, not so bad. Sweet, not much hop. Ok, nothing super great. More or less clean, but it's ok. Nothing wrong with it, in the pale lager space.
