3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC
Blond color with medium sized head. Aroma and flavor are very crispy, nice malts.
This beer deserves some attention.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light tan, some haze. Sweetish palate. Tastes a little like corn syrup although I’d be quite disappointed if this small micro actually used any. Goldings or Willamettes in evidence. Flavours are herbal, with mushrooms (finding those in damn near everything all of a sudden), hedges and early morning farmer’s fields. Look at me trying to find new ways of describing a beer I’ve essentially had four dozen times before. What can I say, the beer is so boring I need to make my own fun. Imagine what I can come up with when I finally have Rickard’s Honey Brown...tastes like watching two fat elderly people get it on...no I can do better than that...tastes like watching your dog lick his own balls...something like that anyway.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sampled at Viti, pours pale yellow. Generic lager, slightly smoother and more robust than the average run-of-the-mill macro piss.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
My Bottom Line:
Plump honeyed cereals dive into a void of a finish in this clean and corny lager for the masses.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the clear blond.
-Some wooden hops are felt in the background, but they are distant.
-The packaging and flavor profile are obvious knock-offs of Sleeman’s products, which is not really attractive...
-I know good lagers are few and far between in Canada, but that doesn’t mean I’d settle for this if I badly wanted a drinkable lager.
Bottle; uh...thx guys!

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear gold, average white head. Sweet biscuity aroma, lightly toasty. Sweet corny lager flavours, a little buttery, a little caramel. Too sweet for me to enjoy more than one.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grass and citrus with some skunk. Taste is light malty sweet with mild grassy and citrusy hop bitterness and a light skunky finish. Light bodied with light carbonation. A typical macro lager tasting brew and not very tasty.
