2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml can. Pours light yellow, small white head. Nose has light malt/grain sweetness. Flavour has some more grain notes, quick sweetness with a light grassy hop character with a low key bitterness that makes this more tolerable than most pale lagers. Light body, average carbonation and mouthfeel.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
pour clean and clear with lots of carbonation and has a slight murky but clean yellow to white colour. aroma is somewhat sweet oats, very pilnser like and has an overall reduced aroma. it is a light to medium bodied brew with aspirations of hops but not much in terms of flavour. For a lager i was expecting a bit more overall roundness because as it is the brew is fairly generic.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
355ml can. Clear pale yellow pour with aspirations of gold with a white head that looks a little like bubble bath... Weird nose that almost wants to be hoppy but has an almost medicinal quality. Clean and crisp on the palate, a touch sweet with a faint hoppiness in a very light finish. Pretty good for the style...I guess.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can, part of the summer mixer. Very pale yellow with brisk carbo and a medium white head, no lace. Aroma initially reveals subtle tinned pineapple and biscuit, but these elements are short lived, yielding to a low aroma of clean grains. Grainy palate of low sweetness with a light hop note in the finish, marred by a slight plastic and metallic aftertaste. I expected a better lager from these guys. Just okay for me.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Single can purchased in Penticton, BC on 05/21/2011. Colour: Very pale...light yellow highlights...wow is this ever pale. Nose: Sea foam, faint yeast, small amounts of rye and coriander. Taste: Light sweet, light sour, light bitter. Kind of a corn-sweet throughout the palate..then something a little differet at finish..very herbal but not powerful...like a pork rub. Regardless - This one didn’t feel right or balanced from the start.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can picked up at Julio’s on our way to EBF. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Pour brings a bright straw-colored beer with a single-finger white head and a good amount of lacing. The nose is lightly hoppy with a bit of straw and hay plus an unfortunate touch of DMS. The flavor has a bit of DMS as well, though not as much as in the nose. Other than that, some raw grain and very faint hops. Feel is light with high carbonation. Drinkability is decent, though there are certainly better options.
Serving type: can

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can from Julio’s.
Appearance : Clear paler than pale yellow.
Aroma : Cheap grain, quite citrusy. A bit herbal. Light honey.
Taste : Cheap grain. Mineral and metallic. Some honey and some citrusy hops.
Overall : Not very good. I expected this brewery to brew a nice lager with the same quality as their IPA but I was mistaken. Metallic tasted faded away after some time which was a really good thing.

Looks lite. two fingers. The most apparent flavor is of gas or some chemical. Easy to drink, but way too lite.
