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.

Everyone LOVES this pint. I don't see the big deal. It's good, it's fresh. Doesn't taste like preservatives or yeast like a macro-brew. But I just found it slightly boring.

I had this beer as a taster at the brewery itself. It hit the spot to be honest, as a simple yellow beer. Perhaps after a hot day cutting the grass and working outside, definitely yes. As something I crave on a daily basis, no.

looks like water, smells like a skunk, tastes like it smells, feels like drinking skunk water.

I will say this, to be fair, in a can or on draft, it scores a 0/5, in a bottle, it's at least a 1/5, for a Canadian pilsner, I'll take a King, or Collingwood pilsner any day over this, or Sawdust City's Little Norway, 3 far superior pilsners.
