3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

Another pull from the BC variety six pack sampler at the LCBO. Mixed feeling on this one before I even pop the top off. I like the stuff ive had from Phillip’s (& really dig their label design) but I find pale lagers generally hurt my feelings & diminish my soul. But look here: this is a really cool version of the style. I could use the word "crisp" to describe it but that word seems to be in every review here (and sometimes twice!) but it is crisp (oops, that’s twice) & refreshing & still has an edge. A diamond in the rough. Recommended.

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.

Very pale yellow in color. Sweet grainy aroma, a little cotton candy. Mellow taste, little sweet, bread. Nice easy drinking light beer.

Bottle from BC craft beer sampler pack at the LCBO. Clear and bright yellow-gold with an abundant white head. Clean aroma of bread crust, light caramel, bit of boiled corn, light grassy hops. Simple and well-balanced flavour of lightly sweet and toasty malt & grassy not-too-bitter hops. A straight-up, well made pale lager. Not my usual choice of beer, but I’ve gotta respect it for being a good example of the style.

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.

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.
