The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl 2014 - Golden in color clear with a thin head. Nice easy drinking Pils. Good balance and dry finish.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014

Draught at the brewery
Hazy blond color with compact head. The aroma is delicate, hoppy and flowery. Dry and lean mouthfeel; flavor of straws, correctly bitter.
Simple summer beer. Not bad.

Lagerboy (1187) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
341 ml bottle. Mostly clear pale straw yellow, lasting smaller white foam. Bready lager malt aroma, some hay. Not too bland pale lager malt taste, faint citrus, light spicier herbal hop. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied. Not that strange of a brew, but better crafted than most Canadian industrial swill. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

reebtogi (4103) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
341ml bottle pours a hazy golden yellow color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some grains. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness that finishes fairly clean. A typical pale lager with a little extra bite to it.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Rating #795 - Dec 2, 2013 -Beer 2 in the Phillips Snowcase. Bottle. 5%.Unimpressive pale yellow pour with a weak white foam that fades quickly. Aroma is corn, grasses, sweet malts. Taste is bland, corn and grains with a lingering sweetness into a smooth, and rather refreshing finish. Something here is appealing... pretty refreshing hoppy grassy bite. All in all, a light crisp lager that is super crushable.

RumRunner101 (750) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2013
Light, clear yellow pour with a touch of white head. Aroma is cracker malts, light lemon. Crisp, clean. Only a slight bit of sweetness in the body. Not too bad.

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2013
Snow case beer number 2! Pours a pale yellow with a small dense white head with a lot of lace. Aroma is grainy, pale malts, and grass. Flavour is mildly bitter grassy hops, touch of citrus, grainy and pale maltiness. I like how this doesn’t have any corn or rice or so says the ingredients. Overall light, crisp and refreshing.

Very pale yellow in color. Sweet grainy aroma, a little cotton candy. Mellow taste, little sweet, bread. Nice easy drinking light beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (3059) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle - Light grain and corn. Pale fizzy yellow with a decent head. Fairly tasteless with a bit of grain and a surprising quick bitter bite that fades cleanly. A nice surprise for a pale lager, but still a pale lager.

WheatKing (1279) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 29, 2013
Bottle. Clear yellow, small head that lasts longer than usual for the style. Nose of sweet grain and floral hops. Flavour is sweet malt, floral, crisp, slight diacetyl... tannic finish ruins it. Would be a very nice pale lager if not for that as I dig everything else about it, reminds me of the Italian lagers.
