Druid (82) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2013
A lasting white foam head with aromas of malt and hops with hints of corn. A short to medium finish on the palate and some mild bitterness. A nice smooth slightly creamy taste and lots of carbonation. An easy drinking and refreshing beer named after the pub in the Doug and Bob McKenzie show.

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

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.

Aroma of straw corn and banana. Taste is much the same. Had in tap from the brewery at a tasting. It's good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPad

On tap at Phillips. Murky straw-coloured with foamy white head. Toasty cereal and corn, pilsner aroma and a slight metallic taste. Easy-going and dry; finishes with a light bitterness. Mild, but not unpleasant. Paired well with bacon maple doughnuts (what wouldn’t?)

kramer (4700) - 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!

Ferris (2046) - 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.

krumbum (410) - truckee, California, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Light clear pearlescent yellow. Smells of earthly hops and dirt. Earthy hop flavor that blends in to a mash flavor. Rinses quick.

RumRunner101 (678) - 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.

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.
