Had on tap at a small pub/eatery in Calgary (Blind Monk). Beer arrived in a pint glass, a pale lemon drop yellow with one finger or so of white head. Aroma very subdued but maybe my sense of smell isn't so great ... I do get a little sweet bread pilsner malt and a few floral noble hop notes. Not much of an odor however. Fortunately the taste is more interesting. Oddly enough I get some fruit notes (banana, pineapple, a bit of vanilla creme perfume) and a green malt juiciness. The whole package is quite sweet but well-carbonated, hops could be more pronounced but I do get the sweet hay flavor and watermelon rind-like green bitterness that I also taste in Sam Adams Boston Lager and other lagers that feature Hallertau hops (apparently grown in New Zealand rather than Germany, where organic versions are currently unavailable ... Could this account for the different fruit notes described earlier?). Finish pretty clean and crisp although there are clearly some residual sugars. Its not an earth-shatteringly great pilsner but I will say that this brew is better on tap. Bottles I have had were more flat, bland, and devoid of the interesting flavors I could detect here.
