Pours copper brown, minimal head. Aroma of malts, grass, barley. Taste is a nice blend lightly malted grainy flavour. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

houblonchien (89) - CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Pours rich amber and clear with average head. Grassy notes on the nose with floral notes. Nice balance. Light hops and pleasant malt on the tongue.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Bomber. Pours translucent copper, white head. Nose is caramel malt, flight floral hops. Flavour has slight yeast fruitiness. Not particularly crisp, slightly sweet, slightly toasted. Clean finish. Well-constructed, extra points for sessionability (trying to off-set my prejudice for intensity).

RumRunner101 (792) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Amber/red pour. Aroma is grainy with light crisp hop notes. Flavour has caramel and bready malts. Slight sweetness with the noble hops adding some crispness to the finish. Fine.

fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with persistent creamy head. Smooth brew; it has a very strong character of dirty water, some paper; dry; correct bitterness; some astringency in the end.
Not exactly good.

Lagerboy (1256) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Bomber. Clear light red copper, lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma of mild fruity malt and light grassy floral hop. Not too sweet caramel malt taste, mild spicy grassy hops, some nuttiness. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Unexciting, clean and sessional. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear dark copper body with a one inch frothy off-white head that slowly faded. The nose is very clean and nicely malty with some sweet vienna, great clean and clear Noble hops, lighter touches of caramel and perfume. The malt profile for this is pretty nice, it’s not overly sweet or husky, just toasty with a little bit of graininess on the finish. The hops are fairly light in the flavor with just minimal bitterness, but they keep the sweetness in check and add a little interest to the finish. Medium bodied, a slight cling on the finish, but not bad. Soft gentle carbonation. Pretty nice stuff, this may be an up and coming brewery if they can keep things consistent.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
(650ml bottle) Purchased at the brewery for $6.50. Pours a large white heads top an amber body. Nose is very cereal. The flavour is ripe with grass and a touch of hop bitterness. Somewhat underwhelming.

reebtogi (4239) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness, a slight sourness with a caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. The slight sourness is leading me to believe that this bottle is starting to turn bad. Even so, this is still a pretty decent dark lager and worth trying.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - JUN 2, 2013
A rather boring brew with some hints of smoke and hazelnut, but not in any strong fashion. Little head, boring brown body. Indeed the nuttiness is its strong point but there is little here in the way of complexity or uniqueness.
