I have had this hundreds of times and finally got around to reviewing it.

473 ml can poured in to pint glass.

A - Pale yellow with two fingers of bubbly white head that had good retention.

S - Bready malts, cereal, a noticeable sweetness.

T - Some sweetness up front. Bready/grainy malts with a very slight hop profile.

M - Light body. Smooth. Moderate carbonation.

O - A very easy drinking beer and a a decent tasting beer at 4.2%.

Poured from the clear (bah!) bottle into a pint glass. Two finger bubbly white head on a clear light amber. Good head retention. Some minor lacing.

Grainy, grassy malt smells. Mild but smooth flavour up front. Toasty cereals bring up the rear.

Mouthfeel is medium light and smooth. Not bad at all. Clean taste and well balanced. Too bad about the clear bottle.

Poor example of a pilsner, surprised how this beer makes it out of thebrewery. Lots of off flavours, both in the nose and aroma. Clarity is not good either, unless they are shooting for a kellerbier which this does not taste close to.

I enjoy other mill st beers but this one is sub par. It could be a great beer but needs more attention in the brewhaus.

A: Pours a clear golden body with three fingers of white fluffy head. Head retention is great and leaves full lacing.

S: Straw grains, some skunkiness - I'd say it's just bad, but I've had this on many occasions and it's been the same.

T: Light notes of straw grains and some metallic flavours.

M: Light bodied with medium-high carbonation. Smooth creamy texture with a sparkling metallic aftertaste.

O: Another brew from Mill street that is below par of what they should be selling. Wouldn't have it again.

341mL clear (boo-urns) bottle with no date. Poured into mug. Part of mixed-six pack that is currently available at the better-stocked NSLCs (Bayers Lake in this case).

Pours a typical bright, clear yellow, fizzy, foamy white head that slowly shrinks, then disappears. Little carbonation visible.

Mild grain, wheat, sweet aroma.

Taste is a light general maltiness...honey-like sweetness, a bit of breadiness, little bit of balancing hop bitterness. Hard to pin down a specific flavour here.

Light, a bit slick, low carbonation, but clean overall.

This beer is fine overall, nothing I find particularly interesting or flavourful. Throw it in the "good craft alternative at crappy aal-happy bars".

Clear golden colour with no head. Very disappointing head and head retention.

Light grainy malt aroma with some spicy noble hops. Very light aroma.

Slightly sweet malt with some mild herbal noble hops. A little dull and sweet.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Good.

An okay but ultimately dull lager. The flavours aren’t crisp enough and the slightly sweet malt kills everything.

pours a light clear golden/yellow colour with an okay amount of foamy/bubbly head.

smell had lots of malt, wheat/bread, and was grainy.

taste was similar to the smell - also smooth, with medium carbonation and pretty good drinkability.

overall it was better than i was expecting - not spectacular but certainly enjoyable.

473ml Can

Appearance – Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, corn, malts, hops

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste malts mixed with corn and grains. There is also a light amount of hops and a touch of caramel sweetness. The beer finishes with a malty and grainy aftertaste with a bit of lingering caramel sweetness.

Overall – Definitely better than the countless macro lagers on the market. I could easily drink a lot of this stuff on a camping trip or any activity outdoors.
