not a bad lager. Positives are the appearance and the initial taste. Negatives are its lack of aroma and strange after taste. Over all a satisfying lager

Gerbeer (1664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with moderate head of big bubbles. Aromas of grain, light hops, and dust. Flavors of grain, biscuits, grass, and crisp toasted malts. Nice enough.

Hidden_Pooch (261) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle. One of the better lagers out there from a big brewery. Surprisingly has taste, which include bread, hay, caramel, and mild hops. Had a somewhat watery mouth feel with very little carbonation. If handed to me I would drink it.

Pours amber and clear but with little head. Neutral nose. Smooth light mouthfeel and low carbonation that almost tastes flat. Mild taste that feature ls the malt over the hops.

MunBro (223) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
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.
