Lubiere (12883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2006
Hazed golden lager with a vanishing white head. Sweet biscuitty aroma with notes of berries. In mouth, rather sweet malt, not bad, but lighter than the King’s, again, a beer for thirst, not much else. Merci, Karl.

Sammy (11180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2004
OK beer. Brewery warned me its not pasteurized as they couldn’t afford to, so I have kept it cool. Passable with food, little head.

Pale yellow with a thin white head. Bit buttery at times, witha slight hoppy bitterness. Thin mouthfeel.

blankboy (7227) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle (341ml) courtesy of tupalev. Beer #4 of "Crappy to mediocre beer rating night". Probably not the best idea to follow a Pale Lager with a Pale Lager. Oh well. Pours a clear pale gold with an average size frothy white head. Aroma of grain and corn, of course, along with some sugar, bread and light hops. Flavour of grain, some sugar, sweet malt, light grassy hops and a corny, slightly unpleasant finish. Average bodied. Not the worst, it’s actually O.K. for a Pale Lager, but it’s not something I’d drink again.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 26, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2004 Pale gold, almost no head at all. Sweet fruity aroma, some raspberry. Not to complex, scents of cabbage at aftertaste and sweetness.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle (341ml). Via trade with Matt7215. Pale gold, smallish white fizzy head. Sugary and grassy aroma, hint of pool liner. Tastes like generic Canadian lager, sugary, weedy, a hint of grains - fairly clean, actually, it started to go down pretty smooth. Slightly syrupy body, lightly carbonated, a little dead on the palate, but all in all not that bad - basic, but no chemical burn or harshness.

GregClow (3194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2010
Bottle from the brewery. Light gold with a small white head. Aroma is malt-forward, a bit bready, with some fruit/citrus hints and a bit of straw. Crisp body. Flavour is fine, quite sweet and malty up front, with mild lemony hops in the not-too-short, not-too-long finish. As most of noted, this is a clean and agreeable pale lager - nothing exciting, but it does the job.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2003 Malt in the aroma, golden, with a slim white head. Malt with sweet, bitterness, an average one.
