Have been drinking 1516 for a few years now , and really enjoy this lager. Crisp carbonation (could even use more ) medium hop, fresh clean taste slightly grainy and goes down smooth with very nice aftertaste. I like this brewery. Looks good in a 16 oz. glass and has nice remnants, as you watch it go down. As always, check your bottle best before dates as some retailers don't rotate like they need to if it doesn't sell quick enough. Sure there are better, but i am sold on this one.
A good beer in fairly true tradition to southern German lagers. I will continue to enjoy this beverage on a regular basis.

Okanagan Spring 1516: This brew pours with a clear golden color. Not much in the aroma department. The flavor is a very pleasant layer of malts and a clean finish. Overall, I rate this as a decent beer, refreshing. I discount that the tasting was done on a ski trip to Canada. A day of skiing great powder does make any beer taste good. Having factored in the positive environment, the Okanagan 1516 still does shine.

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.

This starts out as a very average lager in terms of appearance and smell. Has a nice thin feel of a lager and a good crisp taste. Where the beer sets its self apart from most lagers is the nice smooth finish with little after taste. Its a great beer for a hot day and the quality ingredients of Reinheitsgebot make for a smooth delicious lager.

Appearance - Pours a clear straw gold with a finger width of bubbly white head. Lots of bubbles present.
Smell - Barley, yeast, apple/pear, sweet smelling.
Taste - Barley and grains with a crisp apple tartness at the finish. Clean flavour kept simple, not overly complex.
Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and dry.
Overall - An easy drinking Bavarian Lager by Okanagan Spring. Clean, crisp, a very simple brew that doesn't try to over-complicate flavour. Could easily be a session brew.
