Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC
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.

DuffMan (6456) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
On tap @ Kelowna Golf & Country Club. Light yellow gold, no real head to speak of. JJ ordered the 1516, and at least it had a head. Grainy, sweaty aroma. Light grainy palate, with a sort of tartness to it. Meh.

355ml can porus a pale golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is moderate malty sweet and light hop bitterness. Just an average lager and nothing special.

From 64oz growler. Gold pour, thin white cap that fades completely. Nose is grainy. Taste is sweet at first, gets grainy, very light hop finish. Lightish body with lots of carbonation. Decent pale lager, nothing fancy, goes down easy.

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

I have to give it up for this beer. They are not trying to be more than they really are. This beer has a nice refreshing, albeit simple, aroma that reminds me of the smell of "beer" before I crashed into the world of beer geekery. The taste is simple but it delivers on the crisp, clean, and refreshing promises made by the can. There is nothing beyond a lager going on here but it isn’t too sweet or sticky. At $6.50 for a six pack this beer is officially my go to "cheap" beer and I would easily choose it over BMC, Canadian, etc. It won’t blow your mind - but I’d recommend trying it. Fun can too.

Lagerboy (1171) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
Light honey lager yellow, thin white head. Sweet grainy aroma. Honey sweet malt taste. Silky, oily, low hopped, average carbs. Clean sweet finish. Tastes better when drank ice cold from the can. A step up from most mass produced industrial swill. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Reimer96 (1161) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 10, 2013
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.

bulldogops (1039) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
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.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
6-pack purchased from a BC Liquor Store in Invermere, BC on 08/11/2012. Colour: medium yellow with medium white head. Nose: very basic light malt and soft barley with a touch of icing sugar. Taste: Light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. The slightly elevated bitterness saves this one from being nothing but a guzzling lager, and in turn makes it pleasantly drinkable. Basic flavour profile of a standard western Canadian lager.
