Notes / Commercial Description:
Our 100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager won gold at the 2017 International Brewing Awards in the Specialty Class 3 Organic Beer category. This beer was originally brewed at our Toronto brewpub, and is an organic beer brewed with ingredients from west of the 100th Meridian. Prairie pale, amber and caramel malts are combined artfully with citrusy and floral west coast hops, and then patiently fermented cool and aged cold in classic lager process to make a truly unique beer. Light copper in colour with a white head and aroma of fresh hops, this is a truly satisfying amber lager for all beer lovers. This beer is from a time and a place where quality and integrity aren’t just bywords or catch phrases, they are part of the authentic fabric of the land and its people.

Draught @ Brewpub: this one pours a crystal clear light amber color. There was a small white head that left some lacing. Mild nose: mainly caramel malts. Some grain and biscuit. The taste is good. Some malt sweetness, grain and a touch of biscuit. Solid beer!

Had this at Blue Jays game. Quite good and organic- flavor and smell are terrific. Great beer for the ballpark.

Refrigerated can of Mill street 100th Meridian Organic Amber Lager poured into a glass March 2017. Beer is lighter amber than the name suggests. Nice rocky head with a little lacing later. Simple beery aroma. Flavor is mild with a sweet malty character. It has only a hint of hop bitterness in the background.

This is not a bad beer, but is a disappointing brew from Mill Street in that it doesn't have a lot going for it

Amber with small head, no real nose, more body and maltier than Organic Lager. Crisp, slightly bitter finish. I prefer this over Barking Squirrel.

I got this beer from a mixed pack that I bought whilst in Hamilton for my son's hockey tournament. It poured a golden with white head that is not leaving much lace. The scent is non-descript. The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was a sweet malt base balance by crisp hop. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid sessionable beer.

Mill Street 100th Meridian from the 12 mix summer pack

Look: Orange golden color. White head that goes away. The color could be more amber. A bit light for my taste

Smell: A bit of grapefruit. Feels like a mix between an IPA and a Pilsner. But the smell is not that strong.

Taste: Caramel, the citrus is on the finish. Very malty. The bitterness is on the background.

Feels: Pretty good, the flavor settle down after a bit and comes back. A bit watery tho.

So overall would I recommend? Yes and No. I mean if the beer comes in a 12 mix pack I guess its okay. I personally wont buy it again on its own but as a 12 mix summer pack it"s fine with me.

When they describe this guy as "amber," they're being pretty generous: the colour here is rather anemic--barely leaning into the orange/red range--and that lightness presents itself in a few different aspects. Light body, decent crispness, but ultimately the flavour leans toward being a slightly maltier version of the flagship Mill Street Organic (which is to say: sawdust. Lots and lots of sawdust). Some lemon, biscuit, herbal, toasted malt, but mostly sawdust.

Your tolerance for this (like your tolerance for Organic) will depend on your tolerance for that Sawdust flavour. I don't personally hate it, myself, but can see how it might be unappealing. 100th Meridian, moreover, strikes me as a beer that's simply a bit behind the times. That's not necessarily a knock against intrinsic quality, just an observation that if it had been released a year (or even six months) later, it would have been hopped out the wazoo in the West Coast style.

Anyway, it's fine. Kinda meh. But fine.
