I have been drinking a lot of this during this hockey season. What better beer goes with hockey then the NHL Alumni’s official beer.

Nobody’s business, solid pale lager. Pours a clear dark yellow with little white top. Aroma is grains and noble hops. Taste is clean cereal grains and a small noble hop bitterness. Solid beer.

Metalchopz (2399) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
Single can at the LCBO. Pours a clean golden colour with a big frothy white head, very good retention and lots of soapy lacing. Pilsner smelling nose with the Euro hops over the cereal malts. Hints of adjunct. The taste is pretty grainy with some light grass in the finish. Notes of biscuits and kind of floral. Quite a decent plain lager that is definitely not a macro brewed one.

473ml can from the lcbo. Clear golden pour, big, fluffy, sticky head. Nice pils malt aroma, good cereals, a touch of sweet butter (diacetyl) but it does not detract too much from the beer. Some nice floral hops, lightly bitter finish. Nothing mind shatering, but they nailed what they were aiming for.

473 mL can. Pours golden with a nice white head that leaves no trace. Cereal and biscuit grain flavor with a hint of toffee. Subtly sweet with a hint of hop bitterness. Full on the palate with a round mouth feel and moderate carbonation. Reminds me more of a Vienna lager than an American one. Not bad at all.

Lake of Bays doing what they do best: making the world yet another lager & keeping hops out of the equation. Snarkyness aside this is actually decent. It’s well balanced, refreshing & crisp. I’m impressed. We need another lager on my LCBO shelf like my mayor needs another hit on the crack pipe, but this is good.

Strangebrewer (900) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 13, 2013
can. Poured clear gold with a frothy but quick bleach white head. Light corn mash aroma. Creamy mouthfeel with a light dryness. Bready malt flavour, sweet beer with just a touch of herbal hops. A nice drinkable lager.

Brown pour, a nice grassy earthy hoppy beer, pretty clean and crisp beer, nice offering.

tompete (217) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
473ml can. Pours a clear gold with a thine white head. Aroma a sweet malts and a little grain. Flavour is slightly sweet as well with grain and a minor sourness from grain. Finish is crisp and slightly astringent, minor lingering sweetness with cereal. Very refreshing.

Quite boring and lacking in overall style and flavour. The nose is mild and slightly toasted with a hint of caramel and light grassy hops. A bit mild mannered for a lager despite the crisp toasty malt profile. The finish has a slightly spicy hop and a grassy, slightly fruity flavour.
