2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A little less likeable than the Arctic Ale. Looks the same with some clear gold pour but this one has lacing. Some candied maltin aroma. Somewhat more like German trash than Canadian trash. Bordering the line of offensiveness, Booze comes through in finish. On tap at brewpub.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Similar in character to the arctic. Bread and grain light noble hop. Golden fizzy thin foam. Grain water light grass and noble hop notes. Lacking in depth or character but with no flaws.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear pale yellow, not much head. It is what it is, it does it well and with minimal fuss. Grainy german malts x noble hops x no funny business = crisp, dry, drinkable, balanced, slightly bland.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap @ brewpub. Slightly hazy, golden appearance with a white head. Pretty noble hoppy, strong pale lager nose. Quite strong pale malty, grainy flavor. Not a fan.

Blond color. The aroma is light; the flavor is crispy, dry; unfortunately the bitterness is rather harsh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bread-like malts are joined by butterscotch in the nose. Clear golden body is topped by a shy white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Butterscotch flavour is quite strong but balanced by fairly assertive bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. Some grainy character in the aftertaste. Dry medium light body is pleasantly quite effervescent. Snifter. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at Brewery Creek in April 2009.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy golden blonde, decent dense white head. Grainy pale malt with a noticable lemony zip, pleasantly bitter crisp finish. Quite flavourful and well done (I think this should be moved into "premium lager" status).

Unfortunately we don’t get much good lager here in BC. This is an alright beer but not great and it did not even warrant any detailed notes when I drank it at the pub.
