probstblueribbon (3724) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
341 ml bottle in a mixed case from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma: Sickly sweet grain/cereal, a bit of raw barley malt, a hint of vague fruitiness, otherwise clean and boring. Palate: Medium body, moderately soft effervescence, fairly smooth. Flav.: Grains/cereals, a little barley malt, kinda fruity – mainly apple juice, not much else; dry with minimal bitterness and an apple juice finish.

Dead Frogs are boring frogs.

Spab (3438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2011
341 ml (clear) bottle from The Beer Store (part of Winter Mixer). Pours a bright, light yellowish gold with small white head. Aroma is grainy and lemony. Flavour is similar with a slight skunkiness to it. A little thin; fizzy carbonation. A cut above most macro pale lagers but nothing special.

pintbypint (3328) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2013
341ml brown bottle, as "Craft Selections" Lager, assuming it’s the same. Pale yellow pour, white head than thins out quite a lot but still has a clingy ring. Nose is bready and grainy. Taste is bready and strongly grainy, medium sweetness. Nothing in the finish, overall a generic pale lager.

Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 16, 2014
Still had some Winter Mixer packs left at The Beer Store. Last one to try and rate of the 4 different ones. Pours a light golden colour that is not filtered to the maximum (which is nice for a lager). Frothy white head, almost creamy, decent retention and good patchy lacing. The taste and aromas are lightly grainy, but with a refreshing mouthfeel, and not too thin. This would be a great lager to give to the mass, who likes the crappy Bud beers and all. I think it is a bridge to the higher micros. Recommended Canadian lager.

VertBaconStrips (2326) - Blerkablerka, NIUE - FEB 20, 2012
OOOO yum. Nice clear gold brew with a fluffy white pillow after some settling with some excellent lacing. Fruity aroma with grassy, lemon and soft malts make this smell good enough. Light fragrance gives way to a light toast scent. The taste is not at all disgusting as I assumed it would be. Mellow toasty malts and a light tang fend off most but not all thoughts of a grassy distraction. Light bitterness here and there. A decent brew with a long soft finish.

bulldogops (2270) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. 5%. Plain as plain can be. Pale yellow colour with a weak, white foam. Nothing special, but drinkable on a hot day.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 5, 2003
Light tan with little head. Slight carbonation. Aroma is malty and little else. Flavour is light and watery with nothing really specialexcept some light herb notes. Finish is thin and forgettable.

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2011
Bright light gold brew sitting in the clear bottle noisy short lived cap produced during pour, looks ok for the style. Lemony lager aroma with hints of skunk and corn. Malts come across as sweet and grainy, mild mild skunk on the tongue. Flavour is more of a lime then lemon, no bitter at all. Crisp and relatively clean. What ever if you try to compare this to most other "Beer Geek Beers" its horrible and it will fail, but if you judge based on what it is a pale lager this very good and well above average. GOOD JOB DEAD FROG!!!
