Great Product and the best by the brewhouse company. A very clean smooth lager. Really like surprising this one on people who love good clean lagers but want to try something different from there go to beer.

Quite a good pale ale. Nice blond appearance, but very bad and short time head. Nice light taste, not to bitter, perfect for a summer day...

Pours with micro CO2, tastes of sweet malts. Rough finish on the palate. Average at best.

I think of a pale lager when I drink this...not pale ale, so I will rate it as such. Faint aroma of grains...sweet toasty grains up front with a mild bitter finish. Pretty good.

Single can purchased from a mom&pop liqour store in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on 06/01/2012. Colour: medium-light yellow with low white head. Nose: Plain malt and light yeast with a smattering of melted caramel. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. There is not much hop influence here, despite the label stating "five choice hop varietals". A crispy biting nature mid palate but then smooths out in the finish with a light sweetened barley trail. Very average.

Bottle. Pours fizzy yellow, small white head. Aromas of the usual corn and barley. Not much flavor. Some more corn and grains. Really not good.

Best Great Western brewed beer, no doubt about it. A new prairie favorite!

341ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a small white head that settles down with only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is very mild with a hint of grains and hops. Taste is mild malt sweetness and light hoppy bitter finish. Similar to most of the macro lagers out there and nothing special.

Bottle courtesy of my new beer friend Andrew. Clear yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste of corn. There’s a bit of character here but not much. Glad I got to try it, though.

First had this Original 16 at a couple trade shows. Compared to Keith’s ’illegitimate IPA’ well you can’t compare the two. For a mainstream-premium Canadian pale ale I was impressed. Barley and hops come through strong yet the beer itself tastes light at 5%. I’ve used it a couple large functions, went over well both times.
Also, I heard a rumor they stole Heineken’s brew-master to craft this beer.
