Had this at Chaucer's in London Ontario. Had a small sample of this beer before I got two pints it. The smell is freshly herbal, such that it also lingers in the aftertaste of the beer. Served in its own glass with a 2cm head. The first sip gave strong hints of malt, which of stings the back of the tongue with the metallic taste. The bitterness is strong and sharp and lingering. Taste like an American pale ale or IPA. Despite the strong taste this beer is very drinkable, with a semblance to iced tea.
I wish they would sell this beer in bottles at the beerstore. If not, i would just have to return again to the pub for the beer on tap.
Serving type: on-tap

Had on draft during the Celtics game at the TD Garden.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a color color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass ad the beer was drank.
Smell: Slight toasted and caramel malts with some lager yeast and citrusy hops.
Taste: Same as above. Balanced and simple.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little bitterness, light bodied, medium carbonation, and a little chewy.
Overall: A good Vienna lager. Not the best, not the worst, but better than average. Enjoyable, simple, and easy to drink.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass - drank cold from the refrigerator.

S - A nice combination of citrusy hops and malt sweetness.
T - Started with the citrusy hops and ended with a nice sweet malt finish.
M - Good body and carbonation level.
O - A really refreshing lager that could be a great session beer.
