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.

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.
