For about a day I thought this read "Flora", not "Elora"; labelling fail! It pours foggy beige-orange with no head. Faint fermented grain aroma. The flavour, however, is solid - a good mix of hops and a grainy finish. Not so attractive, but definitely worth the effort.

I cannot say enough bad things about Trafalgar.

bottle. Golden colour. Aroma of grains, malts. Mostly malty taste, but a little bitter and hops as well. Nothing to get too excited about, but it did the trick after coming home from work.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2013 Originally rated June 2007. Wow ! I don’t know if this is the same Trafalgar brewery I don’t like, but this light lager is well-brewed (says Old Mill Brewery on the bottle). And judging from Pootzboy review, I guess they have changed the recipe since then. Pours a beautiful deep golden colour with a nice creamy off-white head and decent carbonation. The head lasted quite a while, and left silky lacing. This does not look like a light 4% brew. The aromas are sweet and malty. Very smooth mouthfeel with the taste of honey and grain malt. It is quite nice, and I am drinking this one at cellar temperature on a very hot summer night. This is my first Trafalgar positive experience and deserves the title Grang Lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - 650ml. Limpid golden body with a fair, diminishing white frothy head. Average malty/hoppy aroma with bready and some sweet hints. Its decent malty/hoppy taste is well balanced, carries some herbal notes and ends with a good bitter/grainy finish. Good Pale Lager.
Earlier Rating: 5/6/2007 Total Score: 2.6
Bottle - 650ml. Hazy dark gold body with average carbonation and a very thin off-white creamy head. Its malty aroma carries bready, hoppy, piny and brown sugar notes. Malty/hoppy taste is well balanced but lacks complexity. It ends with a short bitter finish. This is fairly drinkable, but I’m not sure it should be considered as a Pale Lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I tried this beer on June 11, 2011 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a clear gold colour with a thin white head. The aroma is skunky malt, metallic hops, and other off smells. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is stale grainy malt, and acidic hops, with a sour finish.

(can) clear yellow colour with medium white head; floral aromas; simple balanced flavour, not bad but not much above macrobrew lager

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can from trade with Boutip. First aromas are of corn and barley. Second wave is better, some grass, light corn, some apple. Overall average. Color is straw yellow, thin white head. Taste is standard lager. Better than some, worse than others. Lots of dry wheat, light malt, some apple core. More of a bitter finish than most, hence the dry hopping. Body is surprisingly not watery, and carbonation is right where it should be.
