COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lightly hopped lager exhibits a golden to copper color. Medium bodied, this is a good beer for the uninitiated.

Aroma is a sweet roasty maltiness with some caramel notes. Taste is a sweet two row maltiness with a slight bitterness that matches generally quite well. Body is a darker gold, almost ale like. Head retains moderately.

BeerandBlues2 (9681) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Tap at Brewsters Alberta. Pours clear orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, toasted notes and dates. Flavor is malty with light hops and bitterness, and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2012 This was actually a decent lager. Reddish colour with a sweet aroma. Yeasty sweet flavour. Way better than an average lager.

A brown-coppor colour, this lager has caramel accents and definite taste of malts. A passable lager, but nothing to write home about. I guess this exists as their stab at a macro lager. Buy the Original Lager instead.

reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Pint on tap at Oliver Square location in Edmonton. Poured a clear light amber color with a film of white head and some spots of lacing. Aroma is pleasing. Taste is light malty sweetness with a lingering hop finish.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2011
Overall, this is a fantastic lager. The pour is a yellowish light brown with a figner of thick off white head. Predominantly caramel and bready malts with a hint of nuts and slight grassy hops. Very drinkable and crisp finish with mild carbonation. The taste is very refreshing and surprisingly bready and nutty malts. Overall, a very solid lager.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2010
Pours a misty light brown. Nice colour, a shade of brown that you don’t see often. Caramel nose with hints of mustard and bordeaux. Odd but nothing to stick your nose up at. Nut dominant taste with a malty background. A strong entrance of tap water kicks in and certainly doesn’t add to the quality of this one. Fairly quiet finish.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2009 On tap in Edmonton, downtown location. Clear copper lager. Sweet, malty, but easy to drink. Citrusy, and pleasant tasting. One of my favourites when I stop in there.

Clear copper pour. Sweet malts on the nose. Slightly sweet and malty but easy drinking. Approachable.

Crystal clear amber brew with an ok white head and decent retention after you give it a healthy swirl. The aroma was of non-descript hops and some citrus. Actually, this beer is pretty tasty and I’d recommend it as a go-to beer at Brewsters. Hops..zippy hops and blahblahblah. Somewhat smooth with some good bitter aftertaste. Hey, that’s a pretty lame review! Oh well.
