look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Purchased as a close out at the LCBO for $3.85 for a 500ml flip top bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a small head that is gone pretty fast. Medium gold with a iridescent quality.

S- Good hops here.

T- Mellow. Very mellow and light. Hops and malt are there in good proportions. Touch of sourness to it but not unmanageable.

M- Interestingly light for the style. Not dry but it is crisp.

O- Nice to get this rarity to try once. No idea where they pulled it out of but was happy I got it. If I saw it again I would not buy it as there are many other beers out there that are better but this is a good brew.

Food Pairing

This pretty good brew went well with..... Grilled cheese sandwiches with onion

Enjoy

I had this at the Biergarten Restaurant in Epcot (Walt Disney World). Very smooth and mellow in a Large glass mug. Okay, TWO pint mug to be exact. We had dinner reservations but had been grazing around the lake all day. This and the food was amazing. Amber in color with little to no lace (maybe in part to the time it takes for your order to arrive) Not overly hopped, smooth and dry. My wife was amazed I finished it.
Yes my friends, go to Disney and drink beer. It's worth the money!
