Strangebrewer (950) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
bottle. Poured clear straw coloured with a creamy white head. Grainy aroma, tart citrus. Light body, prickly mouthfeel with lingering bitterness. Pale malts, slighty bready notes with some tea flavour.

Frothmeister (620) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
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. Id buy a six of this any day.

Radek Kliber (6587) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Where and how: LCBO , Bottle 341 ml.
Aroma soapy feel with honey and golden malts. Citrusy hop accents on top. Clean but fairly generic.
Appearance :
Top: lighter bright white cap, nice rings with fragmental lace.
Base: clear pale gold.
Palate : medium bodied, average carbonation. Tad thinner at sides.
Taste: Interesting. Decent pale golden malt bottom with fruity citrusy hop notes. Refreshing set up. Front more traditional than fruity hopped ending
Other notes lighter, different and drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
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 its very clean, very fresh and really damn drinkable. Id buy this by the case if it were available to me. Well underrated.

worldbeertaste (1718) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
One of the best pale lagers Ive 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.

cfrancis (2637) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
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.

Raistlin (165) - London, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
A clear pale straw gold with a thick fluffy eggshell white head. bready pale malts with a dash of lemon. The taste is similarly bready with some citrus and an earthy bitter fairly crisp finish

pootzboy (1611) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Hazey pale old with a 2 finger frothy white cap - aroma of fresh bready malts, some earthiness and a herbal note - medium light body fresh biscuity character - flavor is very fresh, beady, musty-sweet...hops are subdued but bright and add balance - dries out somewhat in the clean smooth finish- light lemony kiss at the end - this is a first rate crafted helles lager - NOT some discount "pale lager" - not even close - good drinking and well made...deserves better ratings than it gets.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2719) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 21, 2014
The last bottle from the BC craft 6 pack. A clear pale straw gold with a thick fluffy eggshell white head. bready pale malts with a dash of lemon. The taste is similarly bready with some citrus and an earthy bitter fairly crisp finish. Alright.

Spab (2695) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
341 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Natural Selection BC Craft Brewers Sampler Pack). Pours a golden yellow with average-sized white head. Aroma is bready with a hint of corn and some grassiness. Flavour has bready graininess, a little fruit and a little corn and a decent grassy, lightly floral hoppiness. Average body. Nothing too special, but for the fact its a pale lager that is perfectly pleasant.
