Nice light lager. A real pleasure to drink. Nice bottle label, kept one for a souvenier. This lager is very smooth. Just the right ballance of malt to hop, you can taste both. Two bottles from the 6 pack I bought tasted horrible, must have been something they shouldn't have let out. But the other 4 were a real pleasure to drink.

Appearance: Pasteurized apple juice golden, with a lanky layer of micronized bubbles.

Smell: Grassy at first, it slowly develops a corn syrupy sweetnes that takes over firmly as the pint goes down.

Taste: Body is a bit more affirmed than your standard macro lager (probably more attributable to the corn syrup and low carbonation to actual malt), the aftertaste, like the looks, is dry like a bitter apple. A baby step above your brother in law's lager.

Enjoyed a bottle while sitting on the patio at the Fogg 'n Suds in Vancouver.
It has a clear straw / gold color, a strong pour produced a nice white head. The foam does shrink but doesn't totally disappear, and left some minimal lacing on the glass.
The beer is what you expect from the style. A touch of hops, refreshing and easy to drink. Clean, dry finish. A good all around summer drinking beer.
