14 IBU beer, sampled at the new brewpub in Niagara Falls . Medium golden yellow, lots of white foam, leaving lotsa white lace. Astringent taste with light mouthfeel. No aroma.

TFOB 2006. Yellow body, big white head. (3+) Grassy European hops, Light bitterness , floral and hoppy notes - noble hops? Average palate. Not really for me, but surprisingly flavourful lager. Not bad! 6/4/6/3/13 - 3.2

On tap at Niagara’s Best. Pours a very pale straw yellow with a thin white head. Looks like fizzy yellow beer so I’m hesitant. Big sweet caramel malt notes up front, almost a bit towards corn. Still a touch sweet and corn like, but crisp and nicely carbonated. Clean dry finish with some graininess. Probably one of my least favorites of the flight of ten, but done well for what it’s supposed to be.

Bottle, purchased as part of mixed 6-pack at the brewpub. Clear golden with a decent white head that collapses into a persistent ring. Slightly sweet, slightly caramelly grainy aroma. Again, slightly sweet grainy flavour with a fullness to the body that is pleasant. Mild (but certainly notable) hop bite in the finish. This should qualify as a "premium" lager, given the surprising quality here.

[2443-20090814] Tap. Mild grainy yeast aroma. Clear, dark yellow orange body with a quick creamy white head. More mild grainy yeast flavour. Medium body. A little rough, probably much like a logger.
(Called "Logger Lager" @ brewpub; Niagara Falls, ON)

The commercial description ends with "...to appeal to the tastes of the mainstream beer drinker." I think they’ve accomplished that. Looks like the ubiquitious pale lager, perhaps a bit more rich in its coloring. The aroma is pretty faint, some sweet malts, canned corn, and a hint of metalllic bitterness. It tastes better, the malt dominating with a surge of grassy bitterness coming in at the finish. Not too bad.

On tap at the brewpub. Very similar to the light lager, just more alcohol really. The only difference, i can find is there is a bit more of a hop bite, but other than that, its the same. Quality lager.

Eructoblaster (3196) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle - 341ml. Golden body with average carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma is well balanced but is rather thin. Decent malty/hoppy taste with grainy notes. Ends with a short bittersweet finish. Fair Lager.

Draught sample at TFOB ’06. This beer is the brewery’s attempt to capture some of the "buck-a-beer" discount market, so I really wasn’t expecting much from it, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised. Pours a light, bright gold with a small creamy head. Soft aroma of grass and light herbal hops. Body is creamy, similar to their Blonde Ale. Flavour is light, but very pleasant and well balanced, with some herbal hops in the finish. It’s not a favourite style of mine, but if I was a pale lager drinker looking for a cheap option, this would definately be near the top of my list.
