look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Mostly translucent straw color with lots of effervescence and a very thin white head.
Aroma: A mix of crystal/pilsen malt and a little bit of corn sweetness. Not much to this aroma.
Taste: It definitely fits in that Euro Pale Lager style. Lots of real malt flavor and sort of a wet grass and biscuit taste that you get with others of the style. It's a pretty sweet palate because of the malts but there is a bit of hop presence to help balance that. There's not really any bitterness but the hops add a nice crispness to the palate and the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with lighter carbonation than you'd expect given the bubbly appearance. Real easy drinking beer.
Final Thoughts: This beer is as advertised; a micro-brewed lager. They seem to have followed common sense and left out any adjuncts. There are some real nice flavors in this one that stay true to the style. While it isn't more that just a slightly above average beer, it's still a far cry from the macro-lagers that elude all conventional wisdom and fly off the shelves.

Big can from the liquor store in Charlottetown
Pours a fairly clear straw color with a huge frothy bubbly white head that persists. Bready earthy light fruity aroma with a hint of floral hop. Bready sweet maltiness with a hint of fruit and spice. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent lager with a nice breadiness.

Poured from the clear bottle into a Libbey style pilsner glass.
Big bright lemon yellow body color, with a good amount of moderate rising cola sized bubbled carbonation. Head is slightly creamy, if fleeting, and bleach white and leave a thin puck as it settles. Manages to always keep a collar while drinking.
The beer smells like white bread. Like a dough semolina, or French bread. There is no hop presence or even classic sticky lager like yeast quality, but it's fine. No skunking either with a clear bottle luckily.
Palate falls somewhere between classic simple lager without the corn sweetness, and light bodied malt and no hop presence. Comes with a solid malt crispness and dough, hinting of German pilsner thickness but also of simple macro lightness. Somewhere in the middle on that scale. Flavors don't really last and are a bit fleeting for a lager also.
Overall, and ok pils, but most organic brews for me really seem to be missing something to complete a full enjoyable beer experience.
