reebtogi (4088) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JAN 25, 2013
650ml bottle pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is peaches with some hints of yeast and citrus. Taste is a light peach and malty sweetness with some mild citrus hop bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. A fairly good brew for the style and recommended for being a good easy drinking brew.

exeter (259) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a 1/2 of head with a little lacing, very pale straw colour. Tastes smooth, malty with a citrus twinge and a faint bit of hop grassiness. Nice beer because it’s not overly sweet.

vadie (631) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 5, 2014
Jaune avec une mousse moyenne blanche. L’arôme du malt sucré avec un peu d’agrumes. Le goût est d’abord du malt un peu sucré, léger en bouche avec une finition légèrement amer.

Reimer96 (1171) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a creamy frothy white head that leaves nice lacing. Aroma of sweet pale malts, honey, light fruity esthers and some grassy hops. Taste is pale malts, biscuit, honey sweetness and earthy hops. Clean crisp and refreshing... Exactly what the style should be.

AgentAle (599) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2014
Aroma is a sweet graininess from the Canadian 2-row. Taste is a sweet light maltiness with some well paired light bitterness. Clear gold appearance with a thick pearl head thst retains reasonably.

Masterkush7 (501) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Pale gold and slightly cloudy with a thin white head/lace. Citrusy aroma with some pine/fir hops and slight maltiness. Flavour is also big on citrus with some buttery diacetyl noticable. Slight soda-like sweetnes and carbonation. Thin body with a herbal finish.

Lagerboy (1185) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
Bomber. Unclear dirty blonde, slight white creamy head lasts. Sweet malt aroma with a hint of grassy hop. Lightly sweet honey malt, some citrus, mild generic hoppage. Soft carbonation, light bodied. Best consumed cold and quick, sours a bit as it warms. S’okay. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Druid (84) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2013
A very enjoyable sessionable beer best served ice and cold, especially on a hot summers day. Nice blond colour and good carbonation. Hints of honey aromas and nice pleasant palate.

Ratebeer.com should update the photo of the beer since there’s a sexy cowgirl on the new label (who knows when this’ll change). This isn’t my type of beer. It seems to get better as my taste buds get used to it... not a big fan of how this stuff smells... somewhat rancid
