COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the red cliffs and sandy beaches of Prince Edward Island comes a beer as natural as the Island itself - Beach Chair Lager. No preservatives or additives - just pure PEI water, Canadian barley, hops, yeast, and the skill of our Island brewmasters. Be sure to drop by the brewery for a quick tour and taste... Cheers!

Something odd about the taste of this slightly hazy Light beer. An astringency and harshness that shouldn’t be there. Couldn’t put my finger on it, but it wasn’t refreshing.

Draft at the source. Clear golden color, huge white head with good retention and solid lacing. Nice peppery aroma. Taste is lemony straw. Tasty and easy drinking.

Une blonde, plutôt foncée, avec une mousse typique qui reste en place un temps. Un nez simplet de malt et sucré. Un goût de foin, d’herbes quelconques avec une touche poivrée. Une bière sans histoire, plutôt ordinaire, sans en être désagréable. (1153-290714)

Poured from a can. Quick-Rising sudsy head that dissipates rather quickly. Clear golden color, some lacing. Not a fan of lager in general -- a bit skunky -- but this wouldn’t be bad on a hot day.

On tap at The Gahan House as part of the sampler. Pours a mostly clear pale golden color with a smallish white head. Aromas of light sweet bready malt with hints of spicy floral hop. Flavor follows the aroma. Decent enough lager, but nothing horribly complex.

471 ml can bouth at NB Liquor (Saint-Antoine). Pours a clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is cereal, fruits. Taste is same. Refreshing.

The commercial description should of stopped at pure PEI water, because you don’t really notice much else. Slightly better than macro lagers, but I guess it has its gimmick going for it. It reminded me of a cheap champagne that has been watered down even more. It probably does well as it is sold at our most touristy beach.

BrewGoblin (350) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Pretty boring, inoffensive in every way. Basically a homebrew tasting version of a typical big beer lager. That explains the popularity. Grainy and slightly corny tasting with little hops. The malt is pretty bland hay and cereal. It’s a thin, somewhat watery beer with good marketing. Not awful, just not good and not what PEI’s primary brewery should be focusing on when they have many similar beers.

Poured from a can. Clear golden color, small white head. Mild hops and grain aroma. Medium malt and hops flavor with a mild finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luvystypotables (696) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Mild aroma of malt and grains, cloudy gold colour, heavily carbonated with a short well laced head. Taste of grains and malt, with a malty palate.
