From the red cliffs and sandy beaches of Prince Edward Island comes a beer as natural as the Island itself - Beach Chair Lager. No preservatives or additives - just pure PEI water, Canadian barley, hops, yeast, and the skill of our Island brewmasters. Be sure to drop by the brewery for a quick tour and taste... Cheers!

Gift pack with 2 pint glasses and 2 tall-boy cans. Looks like a pale golden lager, smells a touch earthier than an average lager, and tastes like a quiet summer’s day at Blooming Point beach.

Une blonde, plutôt foncée, avec une mousse typique qui reste en place un temps. Un nez simplet de malt et sucré. Un goût de foin, d’herbes quelconques avec une touche poivrée. Une bière sans histoire, plutôt ordinaire, sans en être désagréable. (1153-290714)

Poured from a can. Quick-Rising sudsy head that dissipates rather quickly. Clear golden color, some lacing. Not a fan of lager in general -- a bit skunky -- but this wouldn’t be bad on a hot day.

On tap at The Gahan House as part of the sampler. Pours a mostly clear pale golden color with a smallish white head. Aromas of light sweet bready malt with hints of spicy floral hop. Flavor follows the aroma. Decent enough lager, but nothing horribly complex.

The commercial description should of stopped at pure PEI water, because you don’t really notice much else. Slightly better than macro lagers, but I guess it has its gimmick going for it. It reminded me of a cheap champagne that has been watered down even more. It probably does well as it is sold at our most touristy beach.

Pretty boring, inoffensive in every way. Basically a homebrew tasting version of a typical big beer lager. That explains the popularity. Grainy and slightly corny tasting with little hops. The malt is pretty bland hay and cereal. It’s a thin, somewhat watery beer with good marketing. Not awful, just not good and not what PEI’s primary brewery should be focusing on when they have many similar beers.

Mild aroma of malt and grains, cloudy gold colour, heavily carbonated with a short well laced head. Taste of grains and malt, with a malty palate.

Couleur blonde avec un col blanc, apparence très générique. Au nez très générique aussi de Lager. En bouche c’est la même histoire. A part la canette il y a rien de très révolutionnaire dans cette bière une lager dans la moyenne...

Poured from a can. Thin head hung around for a bit. Top of beer was cloudy till the end. Golden colour could see the monitor through the beer, almost able to read. Smell was soapy and grassy. It’s plus that there is no corn here. Taste: A little bitter and yet a little sweet, if that makes sense. Not a corn pop. Goes with whatever your doing. Up in the mountains, at a BBQ, on the beach. It’s specialness comes from it’s everyday flavour without adjuncts.
