A: 3/4" offwhite head and excellent clarity on this golden straw coloured beer. Medium to low level of fine carbonation that dissipates quickly.

S: My guess would be Saaz and Tettnanger hops predominantly on the nose. Grassy, noble, clean, and floral hops with some sweet malt in the background.

T: Pleasant sweet bread and biscuit malt flavours with some floral and grassy noble hop flavours. Much more sweet than bitter.

M: Thin viscosity and a low level of carbonation.

O: The malt profile of this beer was great, but I would have enjoyed the beer more if it was balanced more with increased bitterness from the noble hops. The carbonation also dissipated extremely quick. Although 8 cans for less than $14 is a great deal.

I have to add that the design of the cans is lacking. Due to the increased competition in the craft beer market, often design is what sets breweries apart on the shelves. (902 characters)

Ok at $13 for 8 cans this is great value as it is much more nuanced than similarly priced offerings from Bowen Island or Cariboo. Pours very pale as per the helles style. The hops are pleasant though I would have liked more but the biscuit notes on the malt are nice and there is very drinkable. Since there is no lager in BC that stands out this might be my go to for the value vs quality angle. (396 characters)
