From draft -Pours light gold with few bubbles and a thin head that disappears. Aroma is slight malt and hops. First sip is slight straw with fruit undertone. Dry and clean. Rather fuller bodied for a lager. Finishes dry and straw like.

brokensail (11532) - 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.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - 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.

MunBro (508) - 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.
