I just poured this but Iím rating it after 2 sips. This is just a shitty lager. I wasnít expecting it, honestly, which made me grimace quite a bit after the first sip. I havenít had a crap lager in ages. Most craft lager is some kind of German style (pils, helles, etc) so when the American piss-water hit my mouth I was aghast. Donít come into this expecting anything but. This is Molson in a fancy package, nothing more.

Macro-lager (pale straw) color, but leaves a large, white, rocky head. Clear enough to read through the glass. Leaves chunky lace on the glass. Raw grain aroma. No hop. Smooth flavor, but it has elements of the macros, particularly in the swallow, which has a thin flavor similar to spent raw grains. I wonder if there are adjuncts in this brew. Better body than most of this style. Iíd ask that they hop this a little more in the future.

12oz can. Better than alot of Canadian beers but not much to this one. Extremely light on color, taste and body. Drinkable, but so is water which is what it resembled. I was expecting more from this one based on the decent Red Racer Pale Ale and IPA offerings.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2009
Oh! Such a disappointment after the excellent Pale Ale and IPA from the brewery. Piss-yellow colour, almost no aroma, not much taste, and the mouthfeel of a light beer. Thank God the six-pack was a gift; Iíd be choked if Iíd spent my own coin on this stuff.

Iím not sure if Iím drinking the springboad lager or the premium lager, the can says classic lager. Pours light straw colored with thick but quick-to-dissipate white cap. Aroma is a mild fresh flower but dewy grass and fresh rain predominate. Taste is bready light malt, sweet-grass hops and light crab apple. Finish clean and brisk. Refreshing.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2009
On draught at the Central City Brewpub in Surry, BC. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of white bready malt, some grassy hops and hint of apple. Taste is light bodied, light in carbonation with flavors of white bread malt, a hint of fruit and grassy hops. Finish is crisp, clean cut with a hint of mild bitterness.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2008 2008-07-30, draught at The Railway Club, Vancouver, 5-3-6-3-11=28
Blond color, thick head. It actually has a mild but quite nice cereals flavor. Well bitter. Pleasant.

2008-07-21, draught at the brewpub, 5-2-5-3-11=26
Blond color. Very light malt aroma. It has somehow a rounder body than a common Lager, without having a better flavor. Strong bitterness. Easy.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 29, 2006
(Draught) 6oz sample glass reviewed at the brewery. Lasting frothy white head with a clear light gold body. Nose and body is light and citrus. Good in my books for a Lager.

Clear gold colour. Thin lasting white head. no decerable nose. Crisp dry tangy taste with slight malt hints and light hop finish.
