On tap in Meteghan, NS, where it's the only beer on tap.
Pours pale golden with a weak head that quickly becomes a partial coat.
Watery light body with a crisp, semi-dry finish.
Minimal malt base dominated by a light load of spicy-earthy hops.
OK with a meal.

Reviewed from notes.

A. Light pale yellow with a vanishing foam collar for a head. No real retention time or lacing left behind.

S. Vague buttered corn and minimal pale malt.

T. Cooked vegetable medley and mild sweetness. Yuck.

M. Watery and thin, undercarbonated.

I'm not seeking this one out ever again.

Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #57 (October 2011):

Not half bad, but softer citric hops never really seem to win us over when in a lager. Somewhat drinkable and balanced, but lacking any real pizzazz. Chalk this one up to a good try. Perhaps this is one of those beers that needs a partner ... like lunch.

LOOK: Clear pale amber

SMELL: Fresh hay, sweet, biscuity, citric oil, clean

TASTE: Smooth, dry grain, hop oil, clean, crackers, citrus, spice
