Sammy (11230) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2005
noticeable hops. Malty aroma. Tastes ginger- ale like so can’t have more than a few ounces. Aggressive carbonation, gassed up and creamy. Copper colour. Some bitterness, but more malty. Lace. Dry aftertaste.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Golden yellow body nearly headless in a sampler with with a thin film of a white head. Lightly alcoholic aroma of sweet malt, with a note of honey. Bit of a yeasty house character. Muted cider notes. Sweet flavour, lightly fruity aroma, and more hints of not quite cider. Average palate. Meh. 6+/3/5/3/10-11

DuffMan (9593) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 15, 2007
This does not fit into the pale lager profile at all. It pours a hazy tea-brown colour with a thick creamy head. Caramel malt aroma dominates, with some earthy and vaguely fruity elements (at this point I’m thinking English bitter rather than pale lager). Surprising soft banana fruit flavour mixed with caramel malt. Very unusual, but very enjoyable. Enigmatic.

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2008
[805-20071102] Tap @ Brewsters (Calgary, AB). Grainy alcoholic yeast aroma. Clear, brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Mild grainy yeast flavour has a long floral aftertaste. Medium body. Not bad but for the floral.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 4, 2003
Gold. Thin head. Macro style lager. I prefered their Original Lager. Slightly sour finish

Cavie (4311) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 17, 2009
Clear copper pour. Sweet malts on the nose. Slightly sweet and malty but easy drinking. Approachable.
