Brewery: Grand River Brewery (Ontario)
Type: German Pilsner
Appearance / Aroma: A cloudy appearance like a wheat beer. Doesn’t smell like a wheat beer though. Nice Golden Yellow colour. Minimal head but what is there is quite thin and gentle- almost no carbonation to look at. It has a flat smell- borderline skunky. No hops in the aroma.
Taste / Feel: The mouthfeel is very smooth, it laces the mouth with some creaminess. It has a familiar flavour I can’t put my finger in, but in general it’s earthy- raisins, no citrus for sure, apricots? Not sweet. It’s a malty beer- but a bit bland and flat for my taste. It’s like if you heard a song which started off with a verse and the chorus never comes- and it ends at 1:00. I’m not sure why they didn’t write the chorus because the verse wasn’t all that good, and definitely doesn’t stand up on its own.
