Can. Probably the palest beer I have ever seen, ginger ale is several shades darker by comparison. Decent head that lasts. Hop aroma is fair. Taste is crisp, with light , slightly sweet body. Ok for the patio on a hot summer day, but thatís about it. Definitely serve this one well chilled.

Can. Pale incontinent yellow. Low head. Light corny aroma. Lightbodied, slight bread base. Forgettable pale lager flavours, light body. Made for the crappy lager crowd no doubt.

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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
