A charming brew that makes me remember a time when things were just a little bit simpler. It was a day unlike any other with a very slight and welcomed chill on the wind near Banff NP. I sat down with my Father and shared a bottle of this beautiful brew. We got into a spot of trouble as I was only 7 at the time, but we thought that was legal drinking age in the Great White North. Still, the beer has the warm golden tones of a July sunset. The smell and taste of the nectar God himself drinks after he mows the lawn in July. But, the feeling is a smooth intake and mild finish, like me when I've had a few. Overall this is an above average daily drinker, also like me it is best in shot bursts.

L: Pours brilliant gold under a moderately persistent white foam cap, very lively and lacey.
S: Graham cracker and some sloral spice, very faint skunk.
T: Crisp, dry, some light caramel sweetness on the finish, big cracker flavors but fairly light overall.
F: Light, highly carbonated
O: Not as good as I remember from the 70’s in Toronto but better than I had feared.

Pretty average beer in my book. Nothing spectacular, but also a pretty solid taste. Reminds me of a very mellow pils. Maybe something I would enjoy on a hot day.

Clear yellow. Soft fizzy head.
Smell is skunky. Very sweet grain.
The taste is the same as the smell.
Feel is soft, smooth, lower carbonation

It's OK.

Clear, light golden color. Small head, lingers for a bit. Some lacing. Citrusy aroma amd taste. Crisp. Very much like a light beer. Slight tartness in the aftertaste. The bottle says, "specially brewed for the unique flavor of an ale and a lager"but I'm not getting it. This is a garden-variety pilsner all the way. Drinkable but unremarkable.
