Look: Pale, clear, golden, with a fluffy white head.

Smell: Clean, crisp grain, some earthiness and hints of spice.

Taste: Again, pretty crisp grainy, bready taste, hints of hops, with a bit of spice mixed in.

Feel: Normal carbonation, sort of dry aftertaste.

Overall: Nothing to write home about, but it's a solid beer. Perfect for relaxing around a fire.

This was a great find. Picked up a 12 pack at Market Basket for only 8 dollars. Has a clear gold color, and smells much better than many other beers. Has a very slight malty flavor with a touch of earthy hops, with a really really tiny spicy finish. It goes down easily and has a great mouthfeel and aftertaste. Much better than any "Canadian" beer I've had.

16 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 2/7/2018. Pours fairly crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit of lemon/pear fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Nicely clean on lager flavors, minimal fruity/yeasty notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very good pale lager. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and never watery for the ABV. Clean pale malt flavors and solid earthy hop presence for the style. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example.
