mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2015
On tap at Whistler, pours a cloudy amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out crisp crackery malt and gentle hops. Flavour doesn’t have much to it - light bready notes and again a gentle hoppiness. Finishes somewhat metallic. Not very thrilling.

Tasting Flight at The Brewhouse, Sample # 2: Mostly clear orange copper, fading tan foam. Mild muted malt aroma. Medium roast caramel malt taste, lightly bitter, slightly nutty, some citrus tang. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, moderately hopped. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Whistler Brewpub. Nice dark golden color. Really strong malt taste, but also very refreshing...

This is trying to be a cheaper Belgian beer but fails. Watery and a cheap Canadian taste mixed with a Stella

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, IBU of 25. Copper coloured body with a drop of white head. No aroma. Big carbonation and mostly malty. A little lace. A bit of hops, but too much carbonation and malt.

Draft from sampler at the Brewhouse at $15.75CAD for six 6-ounce samples. One of the regular beers, very good!

Bottled sample at chateau whistler. Not that notable. Somewhat bold tasting. Would like to try it again

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2011
Floral and citrus hops blend nicely in the nose. Clear copper colored body is topped by a generous and long lasting, fine bubbled off-white head that leaves some lacing on the glass. Pleasant crisp malt flavour with some notes of citrus and moderate balanced bitterness. Medium body with creamy texture and pleasantly strong effervescence. Sampled on tap at the brewpub.

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2011
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy red-amber color. The aroma is very light. Served too cold. The mouthfeel is dry; light caramel flavor, light roasted malt, quite strong bitterness. Dry finish. Drinkable but without character.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
Sample at Whistler brewpub. Poured a slightly dark golden with light cream head. Nose was underwhelming with some mild hops but mostly Canadian malt. Taste was better with more layers, slight cereal character. Finished fine. A decent if unadventurous beer.
