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.

3.26/5  rDev -9.2%

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.

3.88/5  rDev +8.1%

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...

Very light hops, citrus, almost no after taste. Put this one in the freezing for 20 minutes, just started to ice up, took it out, poured and drank. Excellent super cold, very easy drinking. I would compare it to an ale version of a flavorful cold lager.

3.58/5  rDev -0.3%

Pours a cloudy light golden color. Smell consists of bread, mild hop, and a touch of citrus. Taste is more of the same, with the bread flavor quite pronounced and the hops adding a bit of citrus flavor, namely lemon. Mouthfeel is fairly thin but this is to be expected for the style, while the carbonation is on the lower end of the spectrum. The beer finishes dry and somewhat sticky. Overall, this is pretty standard. While the low ABV and simple flavors, it could make for a good session beer for someone looking for a dry and bready light brew.
