355 ml. can courtesy of Ian Calder. Pours an initially frothy head- sudsy- dies down substantially. Yellow, orange body. Aroma is corn and malt sweetness. Taste: caramel, grass, malt sweetness, heavy corn. Some sour notes on the palate. Stale, not bitter- heavy carbonation (which is visible), watered down heavily. Classic boring, cheap lager.

Great for when in a pinch. BC made so can’t complain. Good budget beer but nothing else

Draught at The Met, New Westminster, as The Met 1892 Lager
Blond color; creamy head. The aroma is too fade. The flavor is almost missing too, the bitterness is low.
Side to side with a Sleeman, it’s an interesting race to end second.

355ml can pours a pale golden color with a fast dissipating white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is cereal grains and grass with some metallic notes. Taste is cereal grains with some grassy hop bitterness with hint of metallic. Light bodied with decent carbonation. Typical macro lager and not recommended.

On tap @ Predator Ridge, called "The Ridge", but noted as brewed by Hells Gate. It’s a 5% pale lager so I’m guessing it’s this beer under a different name to make the owners happy. The bartender was uncertain. Not that it matters, as this is an overly sweet under hopped featureless lager with a stale boxboard finish.

nice light tasting lager. Not a whole lot of flavour but for $7.99 a six pack your paying for what you get. Value for money though with nice crisp taste, light in colour and pleasant finish.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is cardboard and armpits. Has a bright carbonated gold body, and a reasonably solid head. Flavour is soft grains and corn adjuncts. Weak palate. Completely uninteresting - why was this beer made? Who are they marketing it to? It doesn’t differentiate from all the other pale lagers on the BC market and tastes boring. Who, in fact, do they expect to buy this stuff?

355 mL can. Nice label design. Pale gold with a thin film of bubbles. Smells okay. Grassy. Some tartness. No corn. Very little flavour. Not as sweet as some of these crappy pale lagers. Dryish, actually. No off flavours. Just nothing there.
