I don't understand why this is rating so high. I found it drinkable & refreshing, but nothing to write home about. Maybe I got an old one.

Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 for a 473ml can. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a nice white head that stays for a minute or two.

S- Excellent little malt hop base. Super good yeast

T- Pretty good for a lager. Has a ton of body and bite. Like this a lot.

M- Pretty creamy. Nice for a lager.

O- Pretty good and will buy again. Like the blend that really accentuates the overall level of beer. Not their best offering but for a lager is very good.

Food Pairing

This nice little lager went well with...... Grilled cheese with tomatoes and onions grilled hard with butter to form that nice hard crispy layer of brown goodness

Enjoy
