Purchased at The Beer Store for just under $2.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a tiny white head that is gone in no time. Medium gold and clear

S- Fair amount of hops and malt here. Not what I expected after seeing the pour

T- A bit woodsy. Metallic. Mushroom flavor.

M- A typical Pilsner.

O- Not one I enjoyed very much. Weird touch of wood flavor. Will not buy again

Food Pairing

This ok beer went well with...... Beef and barley soup with carrots and beans

Enjoy

Poured into a fluted pilsener glass.

Look: Clear light golden color. White head with a film of retention. World map lacing.

Aroma: Malts, grains, grassy notes.

Taste: Grainy and malty up front, lemongrass follows, tangy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Not overly grassy, lots of good grains and malts. Good.
