On tap. Pours a clear golden with a thin, fizzy white head. Weak aroma of grass and grain. Mildly sweet flavour of bready malt, grass and grain with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Light body with a watery texture and average carbonation.

Clear yellow with a faint white head aroma of grains and grass. Taste matches aroma but is a touch watered down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MunBro (886) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at original joes. Golden straw color, comes with no head. A weak, watery beer that you order exclusively on Mondays because it’s $3/14oz.

bulldogops (1373) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 13, 2013
On tap. 5%. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates like pop fizz. Aroma is grassy, hint of sweet malts. Taste is a plain jane pilsner-style lager. Mouthfeel is light, moderate to high carbonation. Finishes a little sweet, no hoppiness to speak of. Would make an ok patiohbeer, but nothing to go nuts over.

Pint on tap a while ago at Original Joe’s in Edmonton pours a pale golden color with a small white head that disappears quickly and leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is light grains and grass. Light bodied with typical carbonation for the style. Not too appealing and not recommended.

On tap, Original Joe’s Medicine Hat. Not sure how this is considered an ale in this database when it is actually called a lager... but whatever. Medium golden with a thin white head that is gone within 5 minutes (same as the amber-- headless beers). Aroma and flavour are sweet grains, with just a hint of toast. Not bad, but I liked the pils much more.

Cinctus (189) - - NOV 23, 2012
Drinkable only as it’s on tap. Boring, palateless and fizzy. A regular, rubbish beer, reminiscent of other more popular beers.

about as boring and uninteresting as a beer can get. Flavourless, no aroma. Beer flavoured water.

dreamflower (709) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Slightly darker than the Original Joe’s pilsener, and a bit sweeter, too, but it tastes kind of cheap and watered down overall, but better than some of their other beers.
