2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355mL bottle, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Nose brings out grassy notes and light skunked vegetal notes. Flavour is similar, bringing out some light spiciness, grass and light skunked vegetal notes. Fairly clean and drinkable. Pretty much as good as a pale lager can be, though that’s not saying much.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Part of the BC Craft Brewers Guild Natural Selections 6 pack (2014). Pours a clean light golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head, decent retention and lacing. Soapy aromas with some citrus sourness. This blends in to a nice grassy hop nose. Light taste with not much malt and just a little more hops. Lightly dry and pretty refreshing for a summer brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle. Pours a clear pale yellow with a good sized white head. Light green tea, light green apple gummy worm (yup), light resinous hop notes, and straw heavy malt on the nose. Light bodied with more faint notes of green tea, resinous hops, slightly watery, and light tropical fruit. Easy drinking, and pretty tasty given how quiet the flavours are. Really makes me think "Brooklyn Lager", and that is indeed a compliment. I’d buy a six of this any day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden pour with a white head. The nose is fairly bright and lemony. Herbal/citrus hoppiness and a fresh grassy hoppiness along with a very clean pilsner malt base. Brightly herbal hoppiness with restrained bitterness. A little bit fruity with respect to the hopping but it’s very clean, very fresh and really damn drinkable. I’d buy this by the case if it were available to me. Well underrated.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the best pale lagers I’ve had. None of the nastiness found in mass market beers. Pale with a thin head. Smells of elderflower with nice soft malts. Tastes of nice soft malt with flowers and soft sugars. Nice.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy gold with a small white wisp. Aroma is light grain and a hint of hop. Taste is crisp, light biscuit malt and terribly refreshing. As Pale Lagers go, this one is a keeper.
