Strangebrewer (835) - Chatham, Ontario, - JUN 13, 2014
bottle. Poured clear gold with a thin white top. Sweet bready malt aroma. Light-medium body, crisp carbonation with a creamy finish. Flavour is grainy hay-ish, pale malts with a faint citrus note. Not bad.

HopsandBolts (38) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a clear light amber colour with lots of white head that dissipates very quickly. I got aromas of yeast, flower and some malt. The flavours were malt, yeast, biscuit, salt, and a hint of hops along with some floral notes. This one has a lot of carbonation on the palette and has a distinctive lemon taste. The main flavours are malt, yeast and biscuit but that lemon taste also comes through pretty clear. This is a decent pilsner but nothing outstanding.

mmacleod75 (107) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2014
Poured from bottle. Light golden colour with some haziness. Thin white head that disappeared quickly. Sweet bread aroma, maybe spruce. Smooth body, somewhat sweet, with very little bitterness. I was expecting something more distinct, but at least it was refreshing.

500 oz bottle from the lcbo Slight hazy yellow pour Weird funky bread aroma Fairly thick mouth feel for a oils I kind of like it but nothing special

Boutip (4646) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2014
Bottle: Poured a clear light yellow color lager with a medium size white head with light retention. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with light sweet undertones is not the most pleasant. Taste is also dominated by grainy cereal notes with some light sweet notes. Body is light with medium carbonation. No apparent adjunct but malt bill is less than stellar.

TheJester (1798) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
500 ml bottle. Drinkable, but that’s it. Not really dry enough, and not enough grassiness from the pilsner malt. Better than Blue though.

Sammy (8398) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Pretty basic beer, minimal drinkability. Nothing offensive just a baby step above a macro.

Spab (2295) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear, golden orange with average-sized white head. Aroma is very biscuity with hints of sweet fruit. Flavour is full of doughy biscuit with a light honeyish sweetness. Average body. Fine but one of GRB’s duller offerings.

cfrancis (2259) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2014
Clean and no apparent mistakes but just so plain. Pours clear gold with a small white top. Aroma is light grain a bit stale. Taste is heavy water with a small cereal malts and almost non existent noble hop. Disappointment.

robinvboyer (2994) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
Solid grains, nice malts. Light grassy hops, medium carb, solid mouth feel. This isn’t a bad beer, but boring.
