Pours with light head and golden color. Smells a bit skunky like a cheap pilsner. Tastes better than it smells though. Pretty much all malt and a bit tinny. I just bought this in a Costco pack but I’ve had it long ago when I lived in Vancouver. I think I have rose colored glasses because it’s not nearly as good as I remember and is a bit of a let down considering the premium paid on the product.

On tap at barley bros. pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Sweet corn and malt aroma. Sweet corn and malt taste with a slight bitterness.

341 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden with a thin, white head that leaves some spotty lacing. Light hop aroma with some corn. Sweet flavour of corn, malt, grass and a hint of fruit with a dry, slightly bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation. Pretty run of the mill lager.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2015
355 ml can from a summer sampler 12-pack from Liquor Depot, served in a small glass mug. Pours a downright beautiful, clear honey-like golden hue with very faint carbonation and a pillowy white head that retains well and leaves streaks of lace. Aroma is of slightly sweet cereals and grassy hops, but the flavor has more malty character than expected; not super-sweet, but crisp and dry instead. Body is thin, but finishes cleanly. Seems to have some Vienna influence. Altogether, it’s a very nice lager that suits my tastes for less sweet pale beers.

brokensail (13661) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
On tap @ Granville Island. Pale golden colored beer with a white head. The aroma is kind of sulfury and really grainy. Grass, paper, and a hint of creamed corn. Flavor is really bland, but it has enough off-putting flavors to it. Creamed corn, paper, and sulfur. Yum. Grassy bitterness and sweet cereal grains.
