COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imported Saaz hops contribute a delicate aroma to this delightful beer. Light in colour yet complex in flavour, Grand Lager was developed to be the perfect beer for a warm summer day. An excellent compliment is spicy foods

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2010
Bottle, 4.0% as Trafalgar Grand Lager. Vinous and mildly grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour has a good maltiness, distinct paper and vegetable notes. Not as bad as it sounds, though.

Mainstream in style, but with a little added hop.

Lubiere (10475) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
Bomber from LCBO. A hazy golden lager with grainy grassy aroma. In mouth, a run of the mill product with signs of lactic acids, infection. No hops here. Not too good. Tulip festival edition.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2004
watery. Little hop, some malt, no color, sickly aroma. And this was fresh. Touch of lemon mid-sip, like lemon in a water glass. Some bitterness, not awful,

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 19, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 From the newer cans at the LCBO. Deep golden pour topped by a creamy white head. The aroma is moderately hoppy. Soft spicy/floral hop aroma with a little bit of earthiness also coming out. The beer is actually pretty decent. Soft sweet and slightly crackery malt aroma balanced by a nice floral hop character. This doesn’t bear any resemblance to the original version of this I’ve had. If they can keep this stable - they might actually do okay with it. 650 ml bottle. Pale golden, hazy appearance, thin white head fading to a slick of faint bubbles. Light fruity aroma, same diacetyl that all of their beers seem to have. Grainy malt and faint toffee. Flavour is full of diacetyl. Pale malt, some fruity yeastiness, and a sweet finish. Not a very good brew. 5 3 4 3 6

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 July 2007. Golden yellow body with a small fading white head. Sweet fruity aroma hints at mango, and over ripe lychee fruits, light hint of something that may or may not be diacetyl. Sweet fruity flavour with a sharp bitter note to the finish. The overall effect is a bit wonky but not necessarily unpleasant. Average palate. Outshines recent samplings of its brethren simply by avoiding infection. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3.0 <P>October 2003. Crisp golden yellow colour. Flowery fruity aroma with much of the same in the flavour. Sort of an odd aftertaste. 7/3/5/3/11 - 2.9

DuffMan (7032) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 23, 2008
Bomber bottle. Hazy straw yellow pour, moderate white head. Buttery sweet aroma (my wife says it smells like buttered popcorn!). Buttery malt, sweet, lightly hopped finish.

mabel (6789) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2007
[440-20070726] Sample @ LCBO-Summerhill. Toasted bread and grain aroma with some mango or apricot fruit notes. Clear, yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head. Medium body. Refreshing, as it seems fresh.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 22, 2005
Pale gold lager with noticeable sweet gold malts. Initial decent hint of hops followed by soft malt . Well made but this faded fast leaving simple , thing lager feel . Well made, no technical errors found, simple, slightly thin and dry end.
