Notes/Commercial Description:
Our flagship beer is a refreshing Golden brew that uses a blend of the finest Canadian and German malts giving it a smooth mild body that balances the crisp, pleasant German hop finish. The hops used in this local brew are soon to be grown at our very own hop yard at the Phillips farm in Manotick.

355 mL bottle. Poured into a pilsener glass. This was a gift from my extended family in Ottawa. Beer pours a medium golden color with little head and minor lacing. Smells of cereal grains. The taste is, well, like most Canadian craft lagers. That is, there's nothing wrong with it, but there's nothing profound or memorable, either. Corn notes are very present. Mouthfeel is light and smooth. Overall, this seems like a great beer for a hockey or football game, maybe a summer BBQ, but not one to bring to a shared tasting with friends.
