UPDATED: JUN 1, 2010 Golden color, and curiously hazy. Fruity aroma stands out. Grainy and a little bit toasty, slightly sweet. Light hop finish.

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.

This will probably be another unique Canadian style lager made by a micro brewer that is glossed over...so be it...I liked it. Its uniqueness comes from following the real Canadian lager style the commercial brewers lost 78years ago.
The deep gold lager we see in the glass has a decent frothy white cap and a good lacing quality.
Aroma : cereals, some husk some sweetness and musty hopping.
Full bodied, rich, malty, from a 2 step mash, northern brewer hops balance perfectly, clean 2 dimensional but satisfying.
Brewer nailed the traditional Canadian lager style on the nose. Don’t get no more Canadian than this....that is if anyone notices or cares about a unique Canadian lager style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

[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)
