Mill Street has some great stuff, but this one is just OK. Nothing wrong with it... just kind of boring.
Poured into a red wine glass, mostly because the bottle was TINY and would look silly in my pint glasses (being new to craft beer, I do not have the correct glassware for most beers, so its pretty much pint or wine... moving on...)
Colour was a golden yellow, but strong and relatively appealing, not urine-y like most macro lagers.
Very little smell to it, although I did pick up a bit of a floral or earthy scent maybe.
Taste is fairly mild and inoffensive. Mild hops, some grasses, other plants, and root vegetables. Perfect amount of carbonation for this style. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery.
I think you could drink five or six of these without really feeling them. Not sure what Mill Street had in mind with these little bottles, especially considering they have no impact on the price. I'd definitely stick with their other brews -- I love Mill Street Coffee Porter!
Oh -- and the guy working at the brewery bar told me that the Original Organic Lager is actually their Pilsner with a different label on it. Don't know if this is true or not, but kinda weird if so...

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.
