Can in alberta. Pale straw pour, with a small white head. Pale malt, slightly sweet, and corny aroma with some very light grasses. Solid palette, and good carb. Refreshing finish, the malts are a little sweet, and some more hopping would be good, but overall its a decent pale lager, and good for what its trying to be.

Nothing wrong here with this lager. Kind of impressed me with the can and taste. No metallic tastes to speak of, but a rather a light grassy, citrus, cereal taste. Had no nasty lager aftertaste, but it was nice and refreshing, as it should be. It is perfect for any occasion as it says.

Move over so-so Canadian lagers, you have a new challenger! I would definitely choose this over other lagers. It doesn’t feel nearly as corny, metallic or dirty. Hard to describe, like it won’t give you that "I am drinking this SHIT just to hang out with my buddies I haven’t seen for years so I’ll choke it down not to look like a pussy/whiner" feeling. You can crank a tonne of this pale, mildly tropical fruit, light roasted malt wonder into you and still hang with the crowd.

Pale blond color with creamy head. Simple aroma, some paper, a bit stale. Smooth mouthfeel, light flavor combination, and low bitterness; some paper, light acidity. Light fruity esters.
Mild beer for non beer lovers. Not offensive.

Big Surf won't knock you off your beach chair. However, this truly is the everyday drinking lager. If you drink bud, Kokanee, Pabst, etc, than you should switch to Big Surf. My go to beer if I'm going out with the guys. Easy to drink, awesome packaging.. Good choice!

Pours a pale yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of pale malts and some sweet floral hop esters. Taste is pale malts, some dme but not much very crisp and clean a d refreshing on the finish.

Pours a pale straw colour with small white spotty head. Aroma is crisp, grainy, kinda sweet malt. Taste is grain, some sweetness, and lightly bitter near the end. A beer style for the masses.

Can. 5%. Not my favourite, and would require a lime or some other fruitiness to be drinkable. Nice clear light to medium yellow color, white to off-white head. Mild sweetness and a very light bitterness, and softly carbonated. Can’t believe Depot loaded up on this swill.

Easily the best beer I’ve ever had. If I could give it an 11/10, I would. You can never go wrong with a BIG SURF.

Not bad I guess...bland, crisp and grainy. very absent of any taste but boring grains...Well balanced for a pale lager. Refreshing for sure
