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.

I was offered this in a can as a free drink on an internal flight. Ryanair, take note.

Firstly, it had surprisingly good carbonation, even at whatever height in ft. we were in the air, which gave a good head and and lacing that sticks fairly well to the glass (yes, a real glass in an airplane).

The aroma was very grassy with a similar grassy, lemony or peppery taste balanced by a biscuity backbone. A very nice tasty beer with a bitter base and nice hop flavour.

Serving type: can

Pours a dark yellow/tree sap with two or so fingers of white foam. Aroma is subtle biscuit and weak apple juice, little to no hop aroma. Palate is sweet cornbread with a touch of noble hop spice. A bit of baker's yeast. Quite sweet for a pale lager and admittedly enjoyable on this level. Fairly dry finish and the hops do assert themselves a bit as you go. No frills North American pale lager, non-offensive but not distinguished except for being sweet for the style.

Serving type: on-tap

500 ml can from LCBO for $2.85 CDN into a pint glass.

Appearance - Beautiful golden color that is very clear is poured into the glass. It is one of those beers that looks crisp even before tasting. 1 finger of head that recedes quickly, leaving some soapiness on top. Quite a few bubbles continuously flow to the top throughout the consumption.

Smell - Grainy smelly, some bread. Malts and hops are detectable but faint. Some grassy notes as well.

Taste - Bready, little bit of spiciness which is surprising. Balanced between hops and malts is nice but they offset each other to an extent that neither is dominant.

Mouthfeel - Nice carbonation and smoothness. Watery in that your thirst will be quenched, but not too thin either. Dry finish with a significant lingering aftertaste.

Overall - A very nice Pilsener that makes me keep wanting to go back for more.
