Purchased at the LCBO for just over $2.00 for a 500ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a high white head that is gone in 30secs. Medium to dark gold colored. Clear

S- Good hops for a lager.

T- Nice beer flavor. Almost like a heavy North American lager. Surprisingly refreshing. Has that light bitterness that comes at the end. Tiniest of metallic taste to this beer

M- Crisp and refreshing

O- Pretty good beer. Glad I gave it a whirl. Would buy again.

Food Pairing

This pretty good little lager went well with..... BBQ'd pizza. Tried it, liked it. Go for olive oil, feta cheese, sun dried tomatoes and sliced black olives.

Enjoy

500 ml can purchased from LCBO for $2 CDN, poured into a pint glass. Served cold.

Appearance - Clear, pale golden color with 1 finger of head that receded quickly. Effervescent. Beer left a nice ring of lacing around the glass.

Smell - Light grassy notes and low hoppy scents. A little bit bready and biscuity smelling, and also an underlying dank earthiness characteristic. All scents though are fairly subdued.

Taste - Very earthy and a bit minerally. Minimal hop presence and slightly grassy. However way too much earthiness / dirt taste for my liking. Don't think my can was off either. What little there is in terms of aftertaste, is mildly bitter.

Mouthfeel - Lower than normal carbonation. Mild finish, Doesn't really clean my palate nor scrub it.

Overall - Everything except for the taste, isn't bad, but I can't get over ho much I didn't enjoy this beer much at all.

Poured a sudsy two finger white head upon a deep gold body, decent retention, sticky lace coats the glass, clear, nice.

Smell is sweet malt, grassy hops, lemon.

Taste follows the nose with some corn and stale biscuit.

Mouth is light, soft feel, slightly bitter, not overly carbonated.

A decent euro lager that I will not seek out but will not be turned away either.
