Appearance: Clear straw color, thin white head, some lacing.
Smell: Sweet, malty, clean.
Taste: Sweet and malty. A touch more hops would be welcome.
Mouthfeel: Light with moderately high carbonation.
Overall: Easy drinking beer. A bit too sweet and light for my taste, but a decent choice to introduce a commercial beer drinker to craft beer.

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.
