Aroma is caramel, honey and a slight earthiness. Taste is light sweet malts, and relatively well balanced hops. RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2017
Pint. Orange amber pour. Finger of off white bubbly head. Aroma is malty, caramel, bbread. Herbal / grass hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a moderate bitter finish. Heavier malt than typical for a pilsner (hence the red I guess). Again caramel and bread base. Lacking the crispness I like in a good pilsner. Heavier body slightly stcky.

Listening to a great ’The Fighter and the Kid’ and enjoying what’s turning into a rarer and rarer thing. Wonderful orangy hue and a very solid white head that layered the glass. Appealing caramel aroma, warm yeasty bread, faint spice, fainter fruit and a touch of grass. Crispish. Got some body. More malts and base bitterness - nice. Light citrus and almost invisible pine, yum. Excellent beer, super tasty, not pure simplicity, highly satisfying. cmacklin (1303) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 10, 2016
On tap. Pours a slightly hazy orange-red with a medium, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, bread, grass and light stone fruit. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, grain and light fruit with a dry grassy, mildly bitter finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Pretty solid, better than I expected.

Bottle. Medium copper hue, cream coloured head. Bready malts with lighter notes of caramel and grass, mild bitterness in the finish. Clean, but simple.

Appearance: clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky ivory head, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grainy caramel, bready yeast, light herbal and floral. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering medium bitter finish. (3/5)
Meh. It’s OK, I guess. I’m not really getting typical crisp pilsner malt character - predominantly this is a grainy caramel Vienna lager, nothing too interesting. Hell, it could probably have been improved (or at least made more interesting) by S&O smoking the hell out of it the way they usually do. This, though, is literally middle of the road in just about every aspect you can think of. Which means, boring and forgettable - drink it if you’re thirsty, order something more interesting if you can. (12/20) Kobold (41) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Appearance: Brooding burnt orange with wisps of muddled thoughts thinly veiling its surface. The central area of the flute glass occasionally recedes into a darkness unique unto the beer itself. All in all a chromatically complex potion.
Aroma: Generic pilsner malt bouncing fresh tennis balls which, after its due moments, begin an account of rolling, caramel wanderings through cereal streets. Mellowed coffee has been spilled into the rye pockmarks of this winding road.
Taste: Bitter orange and pine hops restrained so as not to suffocate the accompanying elements, namely rye and its mild malt companion. The cycle of sniff and quaff ends dry with a happy, if neutralized and exhausted, palate. No bullying acids nor astringency interrupts the jaunt. I liken the ingestion to a cycle of infinite (so long as the bottles keep trooping in) cleansing baptism.
Overall: an elevated pilsner encouraging and cheering a deep striving within its fellow kind.

Heavily carbonated body with minimal head and a very vague malt aroma. Nice sharp hoppy finish and a bit of malt. Very average. Ferris (16487) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2015
Draft - Very light grain. CleR gold with a rich off white head. Light bitterness and a dry finish. Pretty tasteless. Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2015
Bomber. Clear medium copper, firm off-white foam settles and mostly lasts. Grainy caramel aroma. Pleasant clean spiced caramel pils malt taste, a bit herbal, faintly floral. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)
