JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2011
Pale straw-coloured pour. The nose is lightly sulphurous with a touch of noble hop spiciness. The flavour is actually quite hoppy. Nice zesty spiciness with a note of Saaz spiciness and a little bit of light herbal hoppiness. There is a distinct crackery malt character and a little bit of light sweetness. Really nice balance with a crisp bitterness. Quite a surprise to see a nice crisp lager in BC.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Bottle 355 ml
Aroma: soft , pleasant grainy with light hint of hop. Drier sides. 6+
Appearance: very nice. Good deep shade of gold with large frothy white top. Some lace shown. 4-
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium full bodied. Soft rounded with very well developed malt bottom. Very drinkable with solidly exposed golden malts. Solid rendering of Bavarian Helles. Stylistically one of better samples brewed in North America.

DuffMan (6146) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Bottle, shared with my wife. Bright yellow, thick white head that retains until the bottom of the glass and leaves early lace. Aroma has some delicate florals amongst grain. The delicate florals offer a nice light perfumey touch to a light and very clean palate. This is an excellent lager.

mcberko (5352) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Can sampled at Brewery Creek, pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma and flavour are pretty bland biscuit and corn, with a watery finish. Not good.

CapFlu (4350) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2010
(Bottle) Sampled at the Office Lounge in Victoria. Pours a thin white head atop a clear, light golden body. Nose of mashed corn and some biscuit. Nothing terribly exciting here - lacking hops, it has a bready base with more corn malt and grain. No notable German yeast or hops. Final palate of a milk paste watery finish. Nothing I would order of my own volition. Below average.

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2013
355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild with cereal grains and grass. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light grainy malt sweetness. A little better than the macro lagers but still nothing special.

pintbypint (2379) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2013
355ml brown bottle. Gold pour, some fine haze. Fast fading white cap, just a thin layer on the surface. Grain in the nose, some grass. Taste has grains and leafy hops. Slight grassy aftertaste, low bitterness. Medium to high carbonation, lightish body. Overall, drinkable, dryish and basic German influenced brew.

VertBaconStrips (2020) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
Pity pack. Bright yellow gold, lots of white bubbly that compresses slowly. Solid grain base, light grass, lemon, nice. Beginning to like this style more and more. I didn’t give the aroma much text love but I dig it. Tasty and thirst quenching. Smooth and light with solid grain malt, tasty fruit with a sneaky bitter cameo, yum. Light carbs, sneaky bitter touch on the finish. Easy drinking goodness.

Cirrhosis (1174) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 16, 2013
Beer looks like beer in bottle so I’ll say its a 5 like Mitch did. Sweet aroma with lots apple, might be lemon but not really, lots of cereal, maybe corn pops, and all with pennies. Nice carbonation, good thick flavor. Bready, corn, lemon, pennies. This style has never done it for me but this seems like a good example of it. Beer has a creaminess in the flavour and I’m digging it. Highly drinkable beer, not a style I normally drink but I could drink this again.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2014
Small bottle. Gold, white head. Nose is floral/lemon spice, Flavour is same but malts are on the sweeter side. What attracts me to this style is the delicate flavours, this doesn’t really have that but it’s alright.
