fiulijn (14978) - 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.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - 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 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.

DuffMan (6865) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
Guest bottle in their taster box. Bright lemony yellow. Bland aroma of grains, slightly bready. Grainy palate, clean but no real additional character.

Radek Kliber (6519) - 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.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear straw yellow body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is a bit corn laced with a bit of bready malt and little, if any, hops. The flavor is pretty typical Pale Lager, mostly corn, a little grainy with some Cheerio like notes, minimal bitterness on the finish. Light bodied and fizzy with prickly carbonation. Pretty fun beer, probably not meant to be much more than a gimmick, but I thought the hommage was pretty cool. Don’t like it? Take off, hoser!

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2014
The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl 2014 - Golden in color clear with a thin head. Nice easy drinking Pils. Good balance and dry finish.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 (355ml bottle) Part of the Phillips mixed box. Very corn flavoured and macro-brewery nose. I suspect this is supposed to be a funny take on Bob & Doug McKenzie’s movie ’Strange Brew’. Sadly, the joke is on us as this could be Phillips worst offering.

Ferris (4476) - 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.

reebtogi (4237) - 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.

robinvboyer (3127) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Clear golden pour, small, but very lively white head. Pleasant pale malts in the nose, with some very subtle, but present dried, grassy hops. A lovely crisp, lovely mouth feel. A clean and crisp finish. Light bitterness, some light hopping, slight malt sweetness, some grasses, and even a touch of lemon zest. For what it is, its quite good. Probably the best pale lager ive ever had.
