DuffMan (7025) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle. Bright medium golden, average white crown. Grainy aroma and palate, sweetish, low bitterness. Not sure what the goal was here, but the result was a bland, albeit well made, lager.

presario (4706) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 22, 2012
Gift from wife’s school for playing Santa. Beats cookies! Golden copper. Light scent. Flavour is light caramel. Clean easy drinking but not raising the bar.

reebtogi (4363) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 16, 2012
341ml bottle pours a light amber color with a finger of white head that settles quite quickly leaving some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel and a hint of spice. Taste is a big caramel malty sweetness with a little bit of spice and a light hop bitterness. Nothing really special here, only slightly better than a typical macro lager.

Crit (3393) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2012
Amber with a quick dissipating head.Grainy corny nose and palate, somewhat sweet. Flat and lifeless

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2012
341ml brown bottle. Orange pour, thin white head. Wheaty nose, a little toasty. Taste is wheaty, toasty, cereal. Dry finish, lightish body with regular carbonation. Plain tasting.

gramity (1440) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
Clear amber with a bit darker tint than your standard lager. Aroma was a touch sweet with caramel malts and a bit of bread. Taste was quite sweet from the malts with a bit of bitterness. If not for that bitterness this rating would be very different. Don’t misunderstand me, it is understated but kept this beer from being macro swill.

Reimer96 (1334) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a small white ring. Aroma of wheat & pale malts. Taste of wheat and biscuit. Taste like a more flavorful grasshopper but a bit too thin.

Lagerboy (1322) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2013
Clear amber orange, off white head fades fast. Mild sweet malty aroma. Odd fruity caramel malt taste, faint bitterness, wheaty and bready. Softly carbed, light bodied, low hopped. Not that good. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

andrewturba (1072) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Pours a clear amber colour with a small white blanket on top. Aromas are wheat, some barley, biscuits. Flavour is watery, faint bitterness, wheat, some sweetness. Very forgettable.

maley1 (806) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
Golden copper colored pour with small whit head. Aroma of wheat, metal, corn and wet cardboard. Taste of corn, wheat, hint of caramel. Very thin mouthfeel, watery, fizzy, tasteless. Another fail for Big Rock.
