COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium-bodied lager with a soft malty personality showing a touch of hops and light nutty flavour expression that ends with a smooth, relaxed finish.

An average beer. Very crisp and refreshing on tap, however does not stand out and seems to be manufactured with basic cost effective ingredients. I would not spend the money to put it in my kegerator.

Originally rated September 2008. This one came in a mix 12-pack of Keithís. I tried the first three of four bottles that came in the pack, straight from the bottle and I was quite surprised. It had more punch than their IPA and Red lager. Now for the fourth one, poured in a glass. Normal golden colour (with a touch of amber) with a big white creamy head that stays a while and leaves good lacing all around. Good fresh malty nose, and does not change into the usual disgusting lager fake aroma. Nice taste of grassy malt at first, heading into a grainy aftertaste. I really like this brew, as I am a bit sick of their IPA, and was not expecting anything from a lager.

1st macro beer offered at the annual K-W crapfest of bad beer. Pale gold, vanishing head, fizzy. No aroma but a light whaft of cereal and dextrin. Weak mouth feel, thin, bland and clean. No off tastes but certainly very little taste period. Typical over processed adjuct Canuk macro sludge.

j12601 (6743) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Mini-growler from Half-Time. Pours a clear light brown amber with a medium white head. Looks deceive what lies ahead though, as Iím greeted by burnt grain and rancid nuts. Medium bodied and a bit sweet, with an unpleasant flavor that echoes the burnt odors. This is just unpleasant all around. Ends rather grainy and with a light bitterness that carries a bit of a metallic twang. Iím rather glad that I paid something like $2 for the 16oz mini-growler, as the bulk of this is going down the drain.

On tap at Strange Brew in Manchester, N.H. I am taking theior word for it that it was the lager but it seemed to have the qualities of a Red. The lighting was bad in the restaraunt but it appeared to pour a handsome amber with excellent clarity and about a half-finger of beige foamy head. The aroma was mostly of malts with a vague backgroud of fresh hops. Medum to creamy mouthfeel. The flavor was of sweet malts, caramel, and a good balance of hops. It was a smooth beer.

MrBunn (2488) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2009
On tap. Pours a transparent gold with a small and fizzy head. Aromas are mostly of apple juice and a little bit of pepper and grass. Flavor is about the same... Itís light and refreshing, but rather uninteresting.

bottle bought by my uncle from Quebec. Well my hopes arnt high.......and well i was right to think so. Nothing fancy typical lager, nothing to write home about. pretty blah, but you know its drinkable, and for your typical macro lager fan they would enjoy this.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Pours a little darker than most american/canadian lagers. Aromas of corn, hops, and you know the rest. Flavor is a little more pronounced in this lager. Just a bit more flavor than most.

cheap (4173) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2008
On tap at the fox and hound on mckight road in pittsburgh. Appears pale yellow. Clean beery aroma. Slightly fruity on the initial sip. Clean and refreshing palate. A very tasty lager and not over the top. Off tart flavor impact. Easy and well behaved. Not bad at all. Nice on draft with good carbonation. That tart feeling keeps sticking its head up. Does have a medium bitter linger, but is not ever overwhelming. Good beer, I enjoyed it for the most part.
