Alberta (Canada)

4.03/5  rDev +38.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured a 500-ml can into a tall pilsner glass.

Appearance - pale yellow in appearance, thin lace around the edge with virtually no head. Substantial carbonation.

Smell - very fresh, floral aroma, a little bread scent as well. Notable fresh grasses and a decent hint of orange.

Taste - lively sweetness from the beginning, and then good hop bitterness following. Typical maltiness supported by subtle herb flavourings.

Mouthfeel - it is quite peppery with the heavier carbonation. The decent bitters merge okay with the bubbles.

Drinkability - this impresses me as a brew I would have again. One of the better German pilsners I've had so far.

2.96/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

500 ml can from LCBO poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Clear golden colour. 2 fingers of head, but dissapears quickly. Some carbonation appears to be evident based on the visible carbonation bubbles in the pint glass.

Smell - Light grassy notes but malts are a bit stronger here. There is also a funky metallic smell, that isn't strong but is there. Otherwise good smelling beer.

Taste - Clean and crisp, some vague hints of spicy flavors. Malty backbone as the bready and yeasty tastes move forward on the tongue. Nothing bad here, but nothing terrible inspiring.

Mouthfeel - decent mouthfeel, moderately rich in feel, but the thing that surprised me was the lack of carbonation in my mouth, especially considering much of its is visible. Was expecting more here honestly.

Overall - A decent German brew and used to be one of my favorites before I started to try many of the others in the style. Probably won't be buying this one again.
