Bought the can from LCBO

Served well-chilled in a pilsner glass.

Very tasty Helles lager. Bright, crisp, smooth and refreshing. Very clean finish.

473 ml can served cold into a St. Pauli girl mug. LCBO purchase for just over $3 CDN.

Appearance - clear, piss yellow beer with a finger of quickly receding head on top. Pretty non-descript otherwise, lots of bubbles.

Smell - clean, lots of grain, a subtle summery sweetness of corn and slight bits of floral aspects. Pretty good stuff.

Taste - lots of bready flavors, subtle corn sweetness and quite a good depth of flavor too. Nice aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - medium bodied, well carbonated, easy to drink, carbonation might be a touch high, but still good feel, with a fairly non dry finish.

Overall - very nice helles lager, worth a try and with summer on the horizon, this is a great beer for barbecuing, brats, and all things summer.

473 mL can from the LCBO; dated Apr 8 2019 and served well chilled. I do love a good Munich helles, and this particular domestic example was compared side-by-side with one of my favourites of said style (Hofbräu Original).

Pours clear golden-blonde, with no effervescence whatsoever - I only mention this because I've reviewed at least a dozen pale lagers in the last week or so, and this is the first one that has looked downright still. Situated atop is just over a finger of soapy, foamy white head that falls apart over the next couple of minutes; a modest collar of froth lives on, but that's about it. Its aromas are immaculately clean and very subtle: I'm getting only a note of grainy, doughy pale malt sweetness and a touch of floral, grassy noble hops.

It's a pretty good helles lager, with grainy pale malts, and bready, cereal sweetness comprising the bulk of the flavour profile. Suggestions of apples, followed by a grassy, floral note on the back end that nicely accentuates the lingering bread/grain flavours; off-dry aftertaste. Light in body, with middling carbonation levels that provide a crisp bite; quite refreshing and very drinkable.

Final Grade: 3.7, a B grade. German lagers make up a large percentage of the pie chart that is my overall beer consumption, and Divercity's is a fine interpretation - better than most local approximations, although there are definitely better Munich Helles lagers out there. I wouldn't search high and low for this beer, but if it remains in stock (and fresh) then I'm sure I'll be picking up more. Give it a try and decide for yourself; I'd take it over Lowenbräu.
