Sampled this evening on 9/22/14. Comes in a 650ml (22 ounce) can, and this is a heavy-duty can that you can't crush either! Picked this up last weekend at Whole Foods for $2.29. From the Sapporo Brewing Company in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a weissber vase glass.

Pours a golden-yellow in color with a thin white head that settles down mostly along the sides. Some spotty lacing is seen when sipped. Lots going on with the aroma as there is grass, yeast, honey, herbal and some honey. Pretty much the taste follows the nose with some malts and hops in the mix as well. A slight bitter finish is noted but doesn't linger. Medium-bodied and higher carbonation as there is a lot of streaming bubbles rising from the bottom and sides of the glass. Overall, it wasn't bad.

12 ounce bottle into lager glass, K3012G bottle code. Pours fairly crystal clear bright gold color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, earthy hop, and light yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Flavors are very clean as well with no overly estery yeast notes. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and clean mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale lager style. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

9/6....tallboy can into a glass. The "reserve" is far superior to the standard pils. Light colored, white foam. Nice pils-y taste. But more body than the adjunct version.
