This arrived at my local 7-11, and honestly this isn’t a bad "game day" beer. I can see myself tailgating or watching football with a bunch of friends and drinking this. Does this satisfy with a meal, or when you want a GOOD beer? Hell no.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2009
On draught at the DIX BBQ & Brewery in downtown Vancouver, BC. Pours a clear golden straw brew with a creamy off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin white ring. Aroma of golden grain malt, some pear fruit, citrus zest, and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, citrus zest and some pear character. Finish is light, crisp with a mild bitterness that quickly disappears.

fiulijn (14290) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2008
Draught at the brewpub
Blond color with creamy head. It has a nice crispy malt aroma (6 or 7). Unfortunately this is not repeated by the flavor, being boring as many other common Lagers.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a pale yellow with a light head and some lacing. Aroma is sickly sweet and corny with a light alcohol note. Tastes completely generic and forgettable, just like any old macro pils. Present alcohol - probably the focus of this beverage. Body? Some carbonation. Move on, nothing to see here.

Sammy (8348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2008
Dix Downtown brewDude knows how to brew. A generous white head, and aroma of creamy maltiness, and spice. Active carbonation.A creamy mouthfeel pile, lots of designer lace. Odd spiciness, with corriander and orange. Like this.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2007
Pint. Thin head. Yellow. Light grain and bread aroma. Cold crisp hop finish. I found it too sweet and too much of a weird vegetable flavour.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 22, 2007
Called the Game Day Pilsner now, this beer is straw coloured with a white fluffy head. Aroma is grassy with a touch of hops. Some bready malts and slightly hoppy at the front with a drier citrus hop to the finish. Wel structured.
