COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Signature Series
Craft Beer’s Gold Standard
Ever watch the setting sun turn a field of wheat into a blanket of spun gold? Not to worry if you haven’t, we’ve bottled it for you. It’s prairie goodness so pure that no matter where you choose to enjoy it, just close your eyes to find yourself in that field of dreams.

Little Known Fact
Truly a home-grown, honest-to-goodness Albertan beer. All of Grasshopper’s wheat is trucked in from the Lethbridge area, while its delicious barley malt comes exclusively from central Alberta.

Crisp and clear. A refreshing light lager without a lot of flavour. Good for a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A generally flavourless, flat, headless ordinary beer yet I’ve tasted much worse.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Booooorring. Nothing much happening in this beer. Wouldn’t recommend to craft lover fans, it is more like just a basic lager beer with the slightest of hint of wheat.

Mild beer flavour. Comes in very fresh where I live. Pours light golden. Tastes like a light lager. Good on a hot day.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2710) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2013
On tap at Big Rock in Seoul. Very clear for a wheat beer, nice fluffy head. Served with a slice of lemon so a citrus aroma. Not too good flavor, a bit sour with just a hint of spice but pretty bland. Red Rock reminds me of your average Japanese craft brewery, making kind of bland beers but then again maybe that’s only the beer available in Seoul.

Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2013
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez de blé, léger de caramel butterscotch avec des notes de miel, de grains, de houblon herbeux et de fruits (citron). Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement aqueuse. Faibles notes fruitées (citron) lors de l’entrée en bouche rapidement suivi d’un moyen goût de blé aux petites notes acides, un léger goût de grains de céréales sucrées avec des notes de miel et quelques traces de caramel puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux. Post-goût court, composé de notes de blé et de houblon herbeux.

I had some really good beers on this trip. This wasn’t one of them. Faint lemon and wheat. Nothing else to speak of.

0.33 l can at Whistler. Low aroma, but interesting taste... Quite drinkable...

For the two weeks of summer in Calgary this is a refreshing drink. It has a nice aroma and a great taste. Add a twist of lemon to it and you have a boulder Canadian version of Corona.

Well, it’s not horrible, this is a passable brew, in fact, I would gladly trade the rest of the Big Rock Honey Brown in my fridge for some of this. Slight citrous aroma, bit of honey flavour.....
