This a respectable lager! It starts off a bit flat - minimal head, a steady stream of happy bubbles, pretty much what you would expect from this style. The nose is grassy with a bit of yeast and bisquick. The taste of this brew is actually quite nice. The expected flavours are there, but there is a delightful pepper sensation to the finish, along with a bit of pils hops. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but again, not unusual for this style of beer. Overall, this is a solid Canadian lager!

One of the best lagers I've had. Rich flavor. A bit of depth. Nice.

355 mL bottle from LCBO, into pint glass. No expiry date, but it says "NA ZDRAVIE" under the cap. Does that mean it's a Slovak Pilsner?

Medium straw color with bubbly, short-lived head. Lots of carbonation visible.

Good lager aroma, malty with strong undertones of sulfur and mineral water.

Hey, this is a proper pilsner! Light but flavorful, with crackery pils malt to start and a moderate kick of spicy, herbaceous noble hops on the back end. Sulfur and mineral notes are present subtly and add complexity. Very dry and refreshing.

Thin body with lively carbonation.

Great "fancy lawnmower beer" (sorry, St. Arnold) to my tastes; clean and refreshing without being bland. Could go a little easier on the carbonation.

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

Appearance - Pours a clear golden colour. Looks like your typical euro-style lager, but maybe a bit darker. It poured with a finger of fluffy white head which disappeared pretty quickly, leaving behind a faint amount of lacing.

Smell - Lot's of grass and grains and bread. Pretty standard fare. There might be some light spicy notes in there as well.

Taste - Very bready - reminiscent of a good pilsner. Other than that, there's some grassy and spicy notes, mostly towards the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light-medium body. Almost heavy for the style tho? Carbonation is pretty high, makes for a crisp and satisfying finish. Yum.

Overall - 3.5/5
