473 mL can from Canada duty free. Not much aroma, though faint smells of wheat. and grain. Taste is of crisp wheat with malty finish, light hop taste. Very clean throughout. Overall very easy drink. Nothing overpowering. A step above a macro. Crisp and clean.

L- Golden yellow, perfectly transparent
S- Typical Macro lager smell
T- Balanced and sessionable. Lacking body though.
M- Smooth and refreshing, but thin for a craft beer
Overall it's better than a macro beer but weak for a craft lager.

I bought a mixed pack whilst in Hamilton for my son's hockey tournament. It poured a clear yellow with thin white head that left a spotty lace. The scent is faint biscuit . The taste is nicely balanced and easy to drink. There was some saaz presence. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a solid sessionable beer.

Pours a clear yellow body with a surprisingly good amount of well-retained soapy white head. The aroma is fairly yeasty with a tweak of hop twang. Overall a generic beer aroma. The taste is pretty bland with a near tartness coming in around the sides of the palate. The malts that do come through are some drowned cereal tastes, not that great, but no tastes are overpowering. A good beer as a cold summer beer, though honestly I wouldn't go for it again.

Mill Street Brewery Original Organic Lager.

Look: Clear yellow color. No finger of head.

Smell: You get the malt and the hop.

Taste: Easy drinking, smooth, sweet, grassy notes, bitter hops. Remind me of a Modelo.

Feel: Dry finish, very light.

So overall would I recommend ? As a light beer and an organic beer, Yes but overall, No. A bit disappointed because I was expecting much more. I give it a 3/5 but just because it is my first organic beer.

A nice summer quencher in a German lager style. Some light hop aroma, a bit of bitterness and some light malts.
Easy to drink and refreshing. Makes you want to drink it German style in a yard glass.

I have had literally hundreds of different beers. I prefer drinkable Pilsner type beers the most as they are more evolved brews. I have also noticed that most beers are produced, including craft beers, with GMO ingredients. No not all beers are organic, do the research and educate yourself. When I discovered Mill St Brewery Organic Lager I was dubious, but after a few six packs I have concluded that it is one of the finest beers brewed in North America and is one of the most drinkable beers I have had the pleasure to indulge in. It has a clean, crisp taste with a smooth finish and one of the very few beers that does not give me acid reflex issues, probably due to its organic ingredients. It is a sublime beer that makes an impression with it's simplicity and honesty.

Clear straw color with lots of pearly activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5-10 minutes, with very faint legs. Flavors of sweet grains, barley, lemon, caramel, faint floral and herbal spices. Sugary and a little syrupy, faint bitter noble hops. Slick and smooth light body with crispy carbonation. Light finish, short and clean, with lingering sweet malts and faint grassy hops. Very fresh with a pleasant soft sharpness. Perfect in a hot summer day. Faint flavors but with quality ingredients, doesn't feel adjunct. Good interpretation of the style. Overall good quality craft.
