On tap at Taps on Queens in Niagara Falls. Pours a clear golden amber with a slight orange tint to it. Light caramel and faint grain. A bit thin, very weak grain, and mostly no flavor really. Finishes with some graininess and a faint bitterness. Very watery and empty. Inoffensive, but really rather forgettable. Sammy (12725) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2010
On-tap at the brewpub, fresh batch. A little cheesy aroma in hops. Pale yellow body with carbonation bubbles and a little head on. Lacey. Served on the too cold sid, more complex as it warms. Average mouthfeel, maybe even a tad above that. Aggressive carbonation. Decent drinkability. The taste is a tad funky for a lager. jercraigs (10858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Yellow nearly headless body. Unappealing floral, not quite funky, cidery aroma. Wheaty grass like undertones. Cidery unpleasant flavour. Average to thin palate. Wow, I assumed that the earlier ratings were a bit harsh, but this was “fresh” from the brewery and still not up to par. mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2009

[2449-20090814] Sample. Mild grainy straw aroma is more stunted than the premium. Clear, light yellow brown body with a quick foamy white head. Mild grainy hay yeast flavour has lots of petrol undertones. Light body is rough. Much like the Premium but with petrol.

Draught. At October 2005 Winking Judge BeerFest, Hamilton. Ugh - what a letdown after the much superior Taps Premium Lager. Poured clear oily pale yellow with no head. Funky honey aroma, sweet yet vaguely vegetal, all of which gives way to a weird medley of sweet fruit - cassis, raspberry, grape. Taste is of grains, raspberry jelly, with off-putting metallic harshness mixed in - some wheat as well. Palate is brackish and sickly sweet, as well as too thin. I didn’t like it at all, like a cheap lager thrown into a blender with a can of raspberry jam (and you forgot to open the can). robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 13, 2010
Some nice grainy malts in the nose. Some pleasant malty cereals in the flavor. A great bready finish. A quality lager. rederic (3344) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2010
On tap at Taps, pale yellow gold color, with a ring of white head, light fruity, bubblegum yeastiness, with some faint peach, mango esters, with a faint honeyed pale, crystal malt accent, with a hint of cereal graininess in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp, fruity, crunchy honeyed pale, pilsener malt character with a peachy, pear, mango, mild flowery hop grassy accent upfront, leading towards a zesty, lemony, lingering hop leafy bittering finish.

Nice lager, pours golden, light head, tastes of malts, with a hint of hops in the finish, I would have this again, very drinkable DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2005
Malty nose, and olive/vinegar as well? Amber, small cream head. Tastes of junky candy, sticky and sweet. Poor.
