Wow, this beer breaks all of the rules. It pours a beautiful deep golden/red with a slightly off white thick head (which did not lace). The aroma is slightly malty with a mild slightly grassy aroma mixed with malt. This is a big beer with body and mouthfeel but with no aftertaste. It's flavorful but very clean and drinkable. I have yet to find a been in this category which is so well balanced. Nothing stands out, it just all melds perfectly together.

Tap at a random airport bar in Montreal.

Nice creamy 1 finger head fades at a med pace, nice lacing, crystal clear orange honey colored beer.

Nose has decent lager aromas, plenty of pilsner like malts and some toasty reddish munich like malts, plenty of lager fruits much more than I thought, and a bit of of herbal grassy hops which come out more and more as I nose.

Taste starts light and crisp but plenty of toasty pilsner malts, light cracked straw, light munich red malts, bit fruity, hint of grains and wet straw. Light lager fruit flavors with a nice crispness. Hops again bring a bit of herbal flavors, a bit more grassy and earthy them the nose let on to believe, with a nice 30 or so ibu punch. A bit of creamy like malts and hint of caramel round off the flavors. Finish is quite dry with light lingering bitterness and touch of grassy hops, with but more crisp lager fruits, and hints of malts lingering.

Mouth is med bodied nice for a lager, good carb.

Overall nice, maltier than most base lagers but then again this is a premium I guess. Nice malts, herbal hops actually blend in well, and the lager flavors come through nicely despite the bigger malt profile and herbal hops, but still quite drinkable.

Served on tap at King Edward's Arms in Markham, ON

A: Pours a crystal clear golden yellow to amber in color with light visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall light white head that reduces to patches and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant lacing is observed.

S: The overall aroma of this beer is pretty light. I get some pale and some grainy malts along with some very mild citrus hops.

T: The taste follows the smell and is very well balanced - not overly sweet and not overly bitter. There is a pale and grainy malt presence up front with a pleasant and enjoyable light citrus bitterness in the finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Very easy to drink and refreshing, a totally sessionable beer and one I might get on my next visit up here to the great white north. Very well balanced with a light but enjoyable flavor.

I brought a 473ml can back from Canada. The beer poured a clear amber/orange with white head and some lacing. The smell has subtle hops, with slight tangerine like citrus as well as malt. Taste had sweet malt, like caramel, some hops are present that give it a hint of citrus. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with decent carbonation. Overall it is a good beer.

Pours a beautiful light amber/copper color. The 1 inch of off-white creamy looking head accompanied by some fairly decent lacing makes this look like one damn tasty beer.

Fruity, citrus aroma teamed up with some pleasant hops make this a treat for your sense of smell.

Lighter than what I expected but the great carbonation and light hops make your taste buds tingle. Surprisingly I find the citrus to be a bit more present in the taste than expected but that's not a bad thing at all. Maybe a hint of toffee and biscuits as well.

This is one delicious beer that I plan on going back to again and again.

Parents picked this one up in Canada.

Pours an amberish orangish yellow with a nice head on it. The nose is some grainy malts. Grainy malts show up and dominate everything on the pallet as well. A subtle kick of spicy hops on the finish. This is a pretty solid lager. Nothing too crazy or over the top with some subtle complexities, however delicious and above average for the style. Recommended if you're ever in Canada!
