DuffMan (6793) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
4oz sampled at Medicine Hat Beerfest 2014, from a can. Very hazy lemony yellow. Grainy aroma and flavour with a faint tartness, a bit sweaty, very low bitterness. Just ok.

Draft - Light grains and sweet honey. Pale gold with a thin white head. Tastes just as it smells, again the honey really stands out.

exeter (306) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Pours a light straw colour. The pour brought 1 inch of head became a micro-head with no lacing. I taste grains and grass with a little malt. Has a tart after taste like grape skins. Very light. Laughing dog has done better, I feel that dog laughs at me!

12oz can pours with a clear light gold body that supports a thin off white head. The aroma is a mix of grainy malts, grassy herbal hop tones, kind of a woody sense, biscuit malts, some lemon and a hint of floral hops. The aroma has lots of thin layers but it doesn’t meld and work all that well. The taste has firm herbal grassy notes that pick up floral hops and some earthy leafy shrubs. Some weak Pilsner malts show up from time to time as the hops bring a moderate degree of bitterness. For me the hops provide a nice balance but the they seem to be heading in different directions flavor-wise. Or maybe my palate needs further adjustment to deal with this sort of hop bill. An odds Pils.

presario (4640) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 11, 2014
6-pack of cans. A craft answer to macro mainstream rather than a crisp hoppy Pilsener. OK in a non distracting "Let’s watch hockey" kind of way. Darker amber. Smooth with light hopping.

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2014
355ml can pours a light straw color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing behind. Aroma is grainy and grassy. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. A little more bite to this one than your typical macro lager. Surprisingly enjoyable, but not fantastic.

ronaldtheriot (1257) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Laughing Dog 219-er has a medium, frothy, white head, an oddly hazy, straw appearance, few bubbles, and practically no lacing left behind. The aroma is also strange and pungent- some grape, grain, and peculiar sweetness. Taste is of grape, grain husk, aspirin-like hop bitterness, store-brand creamed corn, and wet bread. Mouthfeel is medium, and Laughing Dog 219-er finishes mostly dry, chewy, and unpleasant. Overall, this is vastly inferior to major brand lagers, like Red Dog. RJT
