JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Light pale straw color. Hint of haze, not chill related. Huge white head. This looks like a real pils. Pale malt and light cider scents. Light sweetness. Biscuit and wild honey flavors. I think perhaps my can is a bit old (and I am talking about the beer). Just not quite a crisp clean lager. 3/11

probstblueribbon (3719) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Can in mixed pack from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. Clear golden with a nice bright white head. Pleasant floral, lightly herbaceous, slightly peppery hops, a little dank, sufficient light malt support. Medium body and effervescence. Floral, light honey notes, a little more malt here, slightly peppery and grassy, nice enough; dry with some bitterness and a pleasant lightly sweet malt and floral hop finish.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - NOV 7, 2012
Mix of the usual acetaldehyde and DMS, but this time with a tinge of biscuit and lemon/floral hops. For the style this is very good, I got it in the variety pack and am actually drinking my second one now; I figured after one for the tick I’d just save the other three for people who prefer this style. So the fact I cracked another one open without wincing is saying something... BTW these guys make the most beautiful cans, reminds me of Christmas.

On tap. Pours a ligh yellow with little head. Light cereal aroma. Crisp. Typical Canadian lager flavor.

reebtogi (5686) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
355ml can pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that settles to leave a few specks of lace. Aroma is grassy hops and cereal grains. Taste is grassy hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness with a fairly crisp, clean finish. Light bodied with modest carbonation. A slight bit better than a typical macro.

Lagerboy (1937) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2012
Clear pale straw yellow, white foamy head settles and lingers. Sweet malty corny grassy aroma. Mild honey malts and light floral hop taste. Crisp and clean. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Finishes floral and slightly bitter. Several rungs up from the mass produced industrial swill that most Canadians consume. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

callmemickey (4255) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 A: Pale, golden-straw body. Slightly cloudy. Large fluffy white head. Quickly settled down as it left spotty sticky lacing. S: Light grains, grassy-floral hop notes. Restrained and clean. T: Light, slightly-sweet grains. Large grassy character. Slightly bitter. M: Moderate carbonation up-front gives way to a slightly thin and weak finish. Nice dry, refreshing feel but lacks that crisp bite that would improve the beer. O: Overall, a pleasant easy-drinking lager. Not the most complex brew, but its not marred by any off-notes... Worth a shot.

bcBelgianbrew (115) - , British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2011
Wasn’t too bad. Typical lager. Not really malty, not really hoppy. Light body, average carbonation. Can’t recall the finish, but I’m thinking it wasn’t too bad. As lagers go I’d drink it again, but I wouldn’t go out of my way. Surprisingly I liked it better than the white ale.
