Notes/Commercial Description:
We believe that world-class results require focus and dedication, so we developed a distinctive recipe for our single brand based on Europe's renowned brewing standards yet is brewed fresh locally at our independent, Canadian Brewery.

We use traditional brewing techniques and only four natural ingredients including spring water, malted barley, hops and yeast - all GMO-free. There is a fifth ingredient in every refreshing bottle, and that is the passion of our dedicated Brewmaster and staff.

Served in a glass from a green Steam Whistle bottle. Love the shape and lettering, it has an old-timey feel to it.

Poured a light gold with a foamy, loose half-inch think head. Faint on the nose, a touch of airy hops and some malt. The head dissipates quickly, leaving little lacing and a ring of foam on the beer as I drink it.

Not much here when it's cold, but gains some character as it warms up. Initially, there's some straightforward malt, but lacks some body. Piney, woodsy notes show up, with a grassy character hiding in the back. The malt had a likeable, straightforwad feel, and hops kick in with a slight bitterness on the finish.

Overall, it's lacking some of that crisp, hoppy character that I like about the Pilsener style, but it's still enjoyable, and would be excellent on a warmer day.

It has been a while since my last confession. Oops, sorry I meant to say my last review :p
See: This beer looks pretty darn good.
Smell: I smell beer!!
Taste: Taste like a Black Jack game on a Thursday night back in 1991. Great Canadian Casino rocks the fort!
Mouthfeel: Numb, because I had a Faxe 10 before this review.
Blanket: I think this beer would go good anywhere, mostly because it makes my heart fly like an eagle. I am also hearing the birds singing!
PS: Must follow a can of Faxe 10 :)
