A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and the sides of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate aromas of fruity yeast are present in the nose along with notes of lemon citrus and hints of bready malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that there are notes of diacetyl and slightly less lemony flavors.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and goes down easily. It is rather flavorful for the style.

3.23/5  rDev -10%

Serving Type - 500ml custom bottle, poured into a pint glass

Appearance - Pours a slightly darker than straw yellow, crystal clear. good deal of carbonation is visible. On top sits 2 fingers of bright white head which gradually dissipates into a soapy foam.

Smell - Slightly skunky. Not a good sign. Otherwise some light grains.

Taste - Thanfully the skunk smell was contained. Getting some solid malts and grains, very light spice and citrus.

Mouthfeel - Medium-light body, high carbonation, crisp finish.

A: Pours a great straw color golden with an off white creamy head of foam which leaves a trail of foam just clinging to the sides of glass.

S: Aroma is very faint with just a trace of hops and malt , really smells almost like nothing really had to concentrate to get anything at all.

T: the styrian goldings are about all I can taste aside from a mild biscuity flavor.

M: Light and crisp with an almost watered down feel to it.

O: Overall a drinkable beer but lighter than I anticipated.

3.31/5  rDev -7.8%

500 ml bottle into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for $3.50 CDN

Appearance - Pale golden color. 1.5 fingers of fluffy head. Cap looks sparkling. Significant bubbles rising to top of beer after pour. Transparent.

Smell – Light malts, grainy smell to it. Hint of spiciness and citrus.

Taste- Nice mild flavor slightly heavier on malts but as hops presence is nearly non-existent that’s no surprise. Dry, sweet hints at end of taste.

Mouthfeel- Smooth and crisp, light on the palate, but wet and not too thin. Refreshing. Definitely a beer of some but not heavy substance.

Overall – A good, mild thirst quencher, however I would considered one of their other offerings if you’re looking for something with even more substance.

I was a little nervous about trying this beer. I figured this company was more devoted to weird names and fancy bottles then making a quality beer. I was wrong.

Pours a very dark colour for a blond beer. Very cloudy (similar to a wheat beer).

Smell is very faint.

Goes down smooth with a little bit of aftertaste.

I was glad to try this beer, and will be having again in the near future.

Well worth a try.

A - Pours a light yellow beer with a foamy head that doesn't last very long. Some lacing is present.

S - Very nice smell with some citrus and hops

T - Taste pretty much matches the smell. There is come citrus and hops. Very light aftertaste bitterness.

M - In the mouth feels light. Texture is watery-creamy, low carbonation.

O - A nice rendition of the style although to my taste it needs more carbonation and more flavour touches...
