Notes / Commercial Description:
We believe that world-class results require focus and dedication, so we developed a distinctive recipe for our single brand based on Europe's renowned brewing standards yet is brewed fresh locally at our independent, Canadian Brewery.

We use traditional brewing techniques and only four natural ingredients including spring water, malted barley, hops and yeast - all GMO-free. There is a fifth ingredient in every refreshing bottle, and that is the passion of our dedicated Brewmaster and staff.

I brought a can of this back from a recent trip to Toronto. It poured a clear golden with no head and no lace. The scent had hints of pilsner flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with so so carbonation . Overall it's ok.

On tap poured into a shaker pint.

A: not much of a head body is a crystal clear burnished gold color.

S: lots of breads doughy Malta with light peppery hops on the end.

T: fairly sweet doughy but not crazy sweet or too malty pulls back with some light floral hops.

M: fair to lower carbonation light medium body a light cling on the finish.

O: this is a solid Pilsner more German to me than Czech. Nice doughy flavors. Surprised it is rated so low.

A solid Pilsner with sweet grainy notes. Refreshing on a hot Ontario summer afternoon.

A pleasant refreshing lager with a frothy head and lovely golden yellow body. The aroma is dominated by bready malt with little Hop aroma, a brief hint of DMS dissipated very quickly p. The taste is again dominated by bready malt although there were some faint fruity esthery notes that were not expected (to me) in a Pils. The mouth feel and body are good. Overall a very pleasant lager to find at a reception on a warm evening, but probably not something I would go looking for.

Clear sparkling gold with a white foam cap leaving thin curtains.

Smell is banana bread, grass and corn, with taste bringing sweet bread, corn, apple, toast, banana skin, and a little bitter grass.

Overall it's sweet, velvety smooth and round with a crisp but semi-wet finish.

Cracked one of these open last night. Smooth, clean bottom. Nothing exciting (apart from the can itself which I found to be very aesthetically pleasing) but enjoyable none the less. The definition of average imo...

Very simple plain Pils. Golden with a good head, little nose, light bready malt body with clean finish. Easy-drinking lager!
