Watery taste, absolutely no flavor profile. Light hops, but not much else going on for it. Wet. Worse than Keiths.

RosenburgerEli (3) - Kingston, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014 does not count
Poured a pale straw colour. No head. Very little aroma. Smell equivelant to cheap adjunct brewed macro. Initial taste of bitter water. almost no body whatsoever. Just another Molson Coors macro brew disguised as a "craft’’ beer. Terrible...avoid at all costs. .....but still better than Budweiser.

Bottle. Very grain based lager. Works pretty well. Has a dry grainy finish with some caramel malts. Not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to pint glass Grains, straw, hay, some yeast and a touch of skunk. Clear yellow, brilliant white head. Taste is a touch skunky with lots of grains.

On tap at the brewery. Pours golden with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of yeast, pale malt and hops. Body is light and smooth. Taste is of bready malt and light hops. Finish is long and slightly bitter. Nice session brew.

MrFecesious (800) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap. Dark yellow. Isn't as terrible as I expected. Still not a good beer, but what do you expect from a Granville pale lager? Slurp tingly dry finish, but pretty much drinking liquid hay.

ljthiessen (169) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Pale gold body, small and quickly fading white head. Smells more bitter than it tastes. Flavour is pretty standard malt and hops, fairly nondescript. Very well balanced and good quality for a plain lager - very crisp and refreshing, and a pleasant drink despite having no memorable qualities.

A lite orange-wheat colored ale with a white head. Bavarian banana on the nose, and sweet soft body on the tongue. Simple and clean ---Rated via Beer Buddy
