I was rather surprised to see a 6-er at my local LCBO, and recall having it years ago when visiting Montreal.

A - Pours a nice dark golden colour, thin layer of head with little retention and no lacing.

S - Sweet corn, light caramel undertones, very bready with hints of pilsener-like grassy hop notes.

T - Reminiscent of a more flavourful mass produced lager like Canadian, but loads more bready malts and the grassy hops are also coming through quite well. Sweet corn lingers alongside a leafy bitter aftertaste.

M - No complains here, easy drinking and smooth.

O - Tasty ale, and given the style its fitting and offers up a solid dose of flavour for what is otherwise a fairly tame style. I would certainly prefer this over some other mass produced lagers.

Had on tap in Montreal (Bobards). Pours a clear faint gold, shiny white head, looks like a lot of carbonation, lots of bubbles. Scent is really non-apparant, a bit of grain, not much else. Taste is pleasant, some malty sweetness, mouthfeel is dry, crisp and drinkable. Overall, not bad, average and nothing special.

3.53/5  rDev +7.3%

A: Really nice color, a yellow-orange color but very brilliant, with a well formed head that dissipates slowly, bubbles are small, compact and many.

S: This is the poorest part, barley is sensed but is not too intense or complex.

T: It is a pleasant tasting really malty as a lager should be but somehow a short flavor.

M: A really little sweet at the beginning changing slowly to a faint bitterness that last in the tongue and something in the throat, not to intense the sweet nor the bitter.

D: Refreshing tasting with a satisfactory sensation combined with the flavor makes a good combination.

2.9/5  rDev -11.9%

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance - pours a clear golden yelow colour with a huge foamy off-white head. There is lots of carbonation and there is a decent amount of lacing left on the glass.

Smell - Hops barley and yeast. Also a sweet corn smell.

Taste & Mouth - Low carbonation on the drink, which is surprising because it looks like there is lots. Comes across as slightly watery. Starts off somewhat dry with some hops and a breadiness and finishes light and refreshing.

Drink - An average beer, probably not something I would buy again.

Probably one of the best of the lot of a mixed case of beers from this brewer, but overall still just an average beer.

Looks good enough. Clear gold with a moderate head that settles to a film. Gives a surprising amount of lace. Gentle aroma of grassy hops and bready malts. Flavour dominated by bitter hops laid down on a decent malt backbone. Finishes metallic with a lingering bitterness. Moderate nothfeel - not watery nor overbearing.

Well put together for an average brew.

Bottle- Charred golden colour with a decent white cap. Aroma is biscuity malts and some grassy/floral hops. Good hop bite albiet a bit watery with the malts and sweetness. Mineral bread finish. I'm willing to give this one a second chance if I see it again.
