Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2008 4oz sample from Olde Stone Brewing Company. Arrived with a golden body, and a nice white head. Lots of yeast and grain in the aroma. Crisp taste, with a nice level of hops, and a fruity maltiness to compliment the grains. Light body and average carbonation for the style. Very refreshing, and a nice surprise.

6 pack from the LCBO. typical clear golden color. Aroma is grainy, and bready, its making me hungry for some fresh bakery bread. Flavour, well.....imagine this, a pale lager with hops!? i can actually taste hops! wow.....nice fatertaste, one of the better pale lagers i’ve had.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2007
341ml bottle, courtesy VeloVampire - pours clear gold with nice visible, but not ridiculous, carbonation. Pure white head on top. Aroma is bready and sweet, with an earthy, slightly musty character. Fruity. Flavour was a real surprise however, blending a good amount of earthy hops with sweet, fruity malt. Nice lingering hoppy aftertaste as well. This is definitely one of the better Ontario lagers. Not hugely crisp, but very smooth and not at all watery. It’s real beer.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2007 341 ml bottle - pours a rich gold with a good sized white head, that leaves very nice lacing as it diminishes. Aroma lots of sweet malt and some light breadiness, and a tiny hint of green apple. Flavour light but with a nice malt and honey sweetness and a small amount of hop bitterness in the finish. Nice stuff. Not terribly complex, but highly drinkable and very smooth. Would make an excellent summer session. Not the best pale lager I’ve had (that honour goes to Neustadt’s Lager), but in the top 3 for sure.

chainman (104) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2007
I had a feeling this would be a good beer to pick up for my day off work, when I knew it would be a hot one and I could sit on the deck and enjoy a cold beer with the first warm weather the summer has to offer. Pours golden, with a dissipating but not vanishing head...kind of nice lacing. The aroma is flowery and fruity, a touch of malt. The taste follows, though not as intense as the aroma led me to expect (which was actually welcome - I was hoping for something that would be smooth). Lots of malt in the nose, a tiny touch of corn, and more of that fruity-flowery sense. Malt dominates the aftertaste, slightly bitter. By far the best Pale Lager I’ve ever had. Very well made, and perfectly balanced, IMO. Great patio beer! I prefer ales, but if I see this on tap somewhere, i would go for it.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2007
Looks about half-a-shade darker than your average gold lager. Full and rich nose of malt and sweet corn, and some synthetic cherry candy in there somewhere. Fairly rich palate for a lager. Flavour leans heavily towards the malty end of the scale, with some fruit and bitterness emerging towards the end. Not outstanding but better than the Canadian standard.

LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2006
bottle: Blonde with lots of tiny carbonation bubbles making their way up to join a slight white head. Not very distinctive to say the least. Little aroma, little flavour, really very little going on at all. Tastes very watery and lacks body. Malty finish just makes the whole experience weird. Easy to drink, but its complete lack of character makes it very unrewarding.

KingofCastle (205) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 9, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 bottle. Disappointing, this lager has not enough taste even when nice & cold. When it warms, less body. Blonde with non-lasting head. Smells better than it tastes. Light body at best but not enough sweetness or flavour upfront like premium import pale lagers (Castle, Tiger, San MIguel). Has a very sweet malty taste which hits the back of your mouth but just too watery (reminds of watered down apple juice). Funny hops flavour in there which makes it really spicy (corriander seed?): almost tastes like a really watered down spice ale. This is an example of poor pale lager: very, very thin & the flavour is not sweet but spicy.

lowg (148) - Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2006
Puchased Pale Ale, Millstone and Gritstone at LCBO on sale. Millstone pours blonde with a small short-lived head. Aroma was mild sweet bready and a little nutty/buttery. Taste was the same, though a little watery for my liking; malts are there while hops are a little faint. Got better as it warmed. Still, better than pretty much every beer under the pale lager category, at least in Ontario. Overall a great summer beer, clean and refreshing.
