omhper (21886) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Pale yellow. Strong disturbing vegetable aroma. Sweet, fruity and light bodied. No bitterness. Why does a good brewpub bother to make a poor imitation of macroswill?

Oakes (13913) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2008
Straw colour. Slightly grainy nose with a hint of pale malt. Fairly sweet palate with fresh grain. Quick, slightly watery finish. OK for what it is.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
A blonde lager with a thin white head. INnaroma, a nice chalky biscuit malt with light mineral notes. In mouth, a light watery ale with chalky malt and sweetish notes, grassy hops, s0-so. On tap at brewpub, Feb. 14 2013.

daknole (10350) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Had as part of their beer sampler. Pretty typical light beer. Better than a Bud, but not a whole lot. Worth trying once and only once. Light yellow, smells of slight malt or grain. Taste is very watery.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2007
Draft... Clear straw-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aroma is grainy with mild notes of spent mash and ethanal. Sweet, grainy flavor. Almost medium-bodied and lightly creamy with medium carbonation. Sweet, grainy, boiled mash finish.

Ferris (8937) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
Draft - Pale sweet malts. Pale light yellow with a decent white head. Very sweet and light with hints of Apple and lemon.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2007
My Bottom Line:
Delicate citrusy, herbal hops precede a surprisingly lascive cereal return. A well-crafted lager for the brewpub’s "American Light" replacement? Kudos to them!

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A clinging veil of foam covers the commercial golden clarity.
-Body is well-malted, though somewhat not helped by the fizzy carbonation.
-The spicy hops develop an intricate nose.
-This has to have improved since the first raters tried it.

On tap at the brewpub.
