On tap at Player's Athletic Lager Co. in London, ON- A deep golden pour topped with a frothy white cap. Nice lace and retention. Nose of creamed corn, butter, burnt sugar, yuck. Tastes of sweet churned butter, corn, vegetal hops. Buttery finish. Whet the hell is this?

Served in a snifter, at about 3 degrees Celsius.
A — Clear, golden pale lager appearance; a bit of retention; light lacing.
S — Malty, a bit sweet. Not much else.
T — Malty, light bitterness and some skunk at the end.
M — A bit too heavy and carbonated, but overall still fairly light and drinkable.
O — Generic commercial lager.

Purchased as part of a 'Craft' mixed pack by the brewery
Pours very pale straw yellow, almost pilsner-like in its lightness. White head, not lasting nor lacing. Aromas are grassy without any major hop. Body of the beer is light and fairly crisp with light flavours of cooked vegetables and malt. At times I felt like I could have been drinking a Bud. That is not a compliment.

On tap at C'est's What Spring Festival. Light yellow body with noticeble white foam, and lace. Lagerish mouthfeel. Skunkish, and in the taste. Sourness in finsish and sugary.Grassy hops, fairly weak helles.Surprisingly drinkable at all for what it is.

Bottle. Mild aroma offers a lightly herbal hop note over creamed corn like sweetness. Clear golden body is topped by a low, white, fine bubbled head that recedes to ring. Flavour is simple and sweet with some cornlike DMS. Light body is somewhat gassy with a texture that is a bit on the watery side. A mild butterscotch note of diacetyl appears as it warms.

A: It’s another typical golden lager with a quick-to-dissipate white head, nothing special.
S: Smell? What smell? Oh, that, maybe a little grain? It’s hard to tell
T: Tastes like a slightly watered down hoppy beer. it Kind of reminds me of Carlsberg, but 1516 has a little more spice and is a little more watered down.
M: It has a medium body and could use more carbonation. It has a nice creamy mouthfeel, none the less.
O: Sub-par lager, probably a bit worse than Canadian macros. This really pissed me off (not the beers fault): the menu stated “This beer adheres to the Bavarian Beer Purity Law of 1516, which states that no beer is to be made with preservatives or chemicals.” The lack of Preservatives is fine, but being a chemist I was a little angered at the notion that there were no chemicals in this beer, since, by definition, water and every other molecule in this beer are chemicals.... I know I’m just being prissy, but still.

This is a beer you will find everywhere in vancouver; restaurants, bars etc. It scares no one and also challenges no one. The beer pours yellow gold with a nice head. The nose is pretty well non-existent. The taste is fairly crisp lager with a slightly sweet finish. It has one hand in the Old World but still tastes a bit like Molson Canadian. Not bad but order the pale ale instead if Ok Springs is the only choice.
