Amber, boring, old hops, touch of caramel. Bland. Rather bland, forgettable. Did I mention bland and boring? Yeah.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
568ml can pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles to reveal some spotted lacing. Aroma is light fruits, perhaps apple with some grass and grains. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness. A little too dark to be classified as a blonde/golden ale, however, this is a pretty tasty brew.

Lagerboy (1217) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
568 ml can. Clear paler copper, fading off-white foam. Aroma is muted and malty, caramel. Taste is sweet caramel and bland buttery pale malt, some mild noble influence. Softer carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. Too sweet pale ale. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

mcberko (6318) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2014
568mL can, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is dry, with metallic notes and pepper. Flavour is very bland and lifeless, with dry biscuity notes, and light hops on the finish. Drinkable enough, inoffensive, but not very strong.

Ferris (3909) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Draft - Light grains and honey. Clear copper with a thin head. Nice mellow hops and grains with a light bitter sweet finish. A pleasantly flavourful light beer.

I don’t know why but this stuff tastes like iced tea... easy to drink and fairly quenching. A unique tasting ale.
