From the group of common worldwide known lagers, this one is a little bit different and stronger. Feels a lot better.

Pours a filtered golden color with a bigger head, receeding to a small film of lacing atop the liquid.

Smells of light wheat, crackers and a note of coppery caramel.

Has a light and refreshing mouthfeel, due to a well rounded, effervescent carbonation and an easy drinking, light body.

Tastes of white bread dough, a sparkly, mineralic aqueous quality, and dried grass, which generates a lighter bitterness. Turns drier then, with the malts surprisingly turning a bit lighter, opening up the palate for a decent, longer lasting hop dryness. Finishes with a prevailing bitterness atop a very silk appearing aqueous foundation, which remains interesting due to its perfectly nuanced carbonation.

This is a very solid, thoughtfully and clean executed lighter lager with an astonishing rustic, herbal dryness. Its hoppy edge sets this miles away from many other industrial brewed beers of its kind.

Hate to say it, but possibly my all time least favorite beer. Doesn’t matter if it’s from a bottle, a can, or a keg - All I taste is bubbly preservatives.

On the bucket list to visit the brewery and see if it’s just Canada (though I’m sure I’ve drank a few all over the world).

I think Heineken is th4e best. It is strong and goes down easy at the same time! It also leaves you with a relaxed feeling and has good taste.

24oz can bb January 2019 poured into a tulip pint glass at fridge temp, no ABV listed on can. The beer pours bright, light golden yellow with nearly white head. The head recedes to a thin ring and leaves a tiny bit of lacing. The aroma is mild and fruity with an apple or pear essence. The taste is a bit of soft malt with a white grape/apple/pear taste. No real bitterness but not sweet. Mouthfeel is medium to thin bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. There is just a hint of butter on the finish, but it's minimal. Overall, very good Euro Pale Lager.

True to style, fresh crisp taste, best served ice cold on a hot summer day. Nice balance of grassy hops and malt
