look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - poured a bubbly clear golden, white head with large bubbles dissipated to many islands, not much lacing
S - some dank resin hop aroma, somewhat tinny metallic smell, but for the most part smells like a very run of the mill lager
T - there are very mild resiny hop flavours, light grainy malt, but again it leans more towards mainstream yellow suds, nothing special
M - highly carbonated, fairly thin and finishing dry
D - will drink easy like typical mass produced Canadian suds, but you always expect better from a 'craft brewer'. They didn't take any risks here, made more disappointing that its advertised as a 25 Anniversary. If I was married to this brewery and this was my 25th anniversary gift, OK Springs would be sleeping on the couch!

Seems like OK Springs wanted to build a better mousetrap for their 25th anniversary rather than create some extreme beer. This is a hoppier version of their 1516 lager and really it only slightly more hoppy. That being said this is a good lager that is among BC's best. Good noble hops on the nose and in the finish, this beer has a nice dryness to it that keeps you wanting more. Will buy this one again

According to the box its brass coloured. According to me it has a nice tight head with some decent lacing. Aromas of grass, grains, light general maltiness, and hints of earthiness fill the glass. Overall a pleasant noble hop aroma. A big, smooth caramel body, that has been lent a slight earthiness from the hops, leads to the slightest of bitter finishes. A surprisingly flavourful lager from a brewery I usually ignore.

Pours a clear pale golden/straw color with a white frothy head that leaves nice lacing and has good retention.

Smells fresh floral and grassy hops backed by a bready maltiness.

Tastes very refreshing with a clean bready maltiness and floral hops with some citric notes. Some hints of caramel in the finish as well.

Crisp, smooth, low carbonation and a light/medium body.
