473 mL can poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a light yellow, kinda even neon almost. The head smells of tangy citus, especially lemon. The taste is clean, I'll give it that. Unfortunately it isn't very exciting either. The hopiness is nearly nonexistent, and the malt flavour is also very weak. The beer is also very flat for whatever reason.

Overall, not a very impressive beer. I'd rather have Mill Street's Stock Ale over this any day of the week.

Serving Type - 341ml clear bottle poured into pilsner glass.

Appearance - Pours a clear pale straw colour. Bright white head which dissipates quickly, leaving behind a small amount of lacing.

Smell - Very faint. What's there is giving off some 'bready' notes and hints of grass.

Taste - Considerably under-hopped for the style. Some bread and straw notes. Some sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation for the style. Very, very light.

Overall - 2/5 Side note: A pils plain enough to be mistaken for an american adjunct. Not that it's necessarily bad, its just that it isn't really anything. 'Beer' flavoured beer?

Pours a very pale straw colour, very little head and almost no retention. Important here to note this is from a bottle, I've had better experiences with this beer on tap.

Smell is grainy/grassy and some skunkiness as well.

Smooth tasting, medium body, medium carbonation, nice overall mouthfeel and very drinkable. Lots of flavour, doesn't taste like a light lager.

The fact that it's organic doesn't matter to me. What I do like is it's a fairly widely available beer that most people who aren't craft beer drinkers can still agree on. Great for sharing a pitcher with friends.

Pours a sot fluffy white head, decent retention. Colour is a light yellow gold colour. Clear bottle. Leaves some lacing.

Smell has barley malt, some citrus, pretty crisp and cerial-ly. Pretty unremarkable, smells like molson.

Taste is somewhat grainey, mostly malt driven, some bready malts come later with a touch of sweetness, not much hop character, it finishes quite smooth, dry, with a crisp graininess.

Mouthfeel has light body, crisp carbonation. Definitely light, a bit thin but not watery, leaves a sort of malty cracker chalky coating. Sessionable and refreshing when cold. Has a bit of substance so not all bad.

Far from amazing, a half-decent lager that I would reach for before others at a party or the dock, simply because it doesn't taste like water. Still a lot to wish for tho, middle of the road, but nice for summer session beer.
