Clear golden yellow in color with a fizzy white head about a finger strong. The cap doesn't hold long until falling back to a white lace supported by rising bubbles. A few spots of lace stick to the glass.

Pale grain sweetness is present mixed with a bit of sulfur touch. The sweetness increases with a bit of bubblegum or candy-like sweetness that loses its initial grain character and gets more like sugar than grain.

The taste is mildly sweet with a note of sulfur. Very mild bitterness keeps the initial sweetness in check. The aftertaste clings inside the mouth with a flavor almost like corn. Fairly crisp aftertaste.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall fairly clean and easy drinking as far as the style is concerned. This is one best enjoyed while colder as the sweet aftertaste increases as it warms.

Poured a 1/2" white soap suds head which dissipated quickly. Clear yellow body only slightly deeper than the standard straw yellow American-lager beers. Smells of grass. Taste too is straight BMC. The only plus is the texture is creamier than most of its peer beers.

A: Yellow to light amber. It looks good. It looks like what you'd expect from this type of beer.

S: A little skunky but not too bad. Could be mistaken for mellow spices or vegetable peelings.

T: Here's where this beer shines. Unexpectedly "super" delicious. A little more spicy than your everyday outdoor beer. There's a good quality to this beer that was planned for. A taste that some people really like.

M: Sparkling and refreshing. Smooth and pleasant.

Overall: Compared to some other OTS Canadian beers, this one holds it's own. Recommended for drinking outdoors or at a party.
