Good retention and very light lacing. Smells of grass, floral and butter. Tastes of citrus zest, grass and a buttery finish. No aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver
Hazy amber color with small head. Light caramel aroma, a bit husky. Simple flavor, but with lean and drinkable caramel profile, with very light residual sweetness; correct hopping, not much hop qualities.
Easy beer.

The only reason for this beer?s bad ratings is beer snobs (distinct from craft beer lovers) can?t accept anything that isn?t an IPA. The lagering process leaves the malt clean, crisp, and refreshing, yet there are still many subtleties in the malt (which few hop-war IPA?s capture) and hops that make the entire experience fun and delicious. Ignore the snobs, you won?t regret it .

Bottle @ Gregs dump, pregaming Trailhead Tuesday. Pours an amber, clear appearance with an off white head. Sweet biscuity, bready, caramel aroma with grapefruit and tangerine. Decent body. A bit of butterscotch. Caramel. Pretty high bitterness. Not very good.

Dark golden body with small rocky head, but lots of chunky lacing. Aroma is pure malt, more malt in the taste with a touch of some sharp hops. some lingering bitter finish.

Bomber. Pours a clear copper color with a large beige head. A light fruity nose. Sweet, green hops, bitter at times, mellow malty backbone, a bit of caramel, clear Nugget hops. Pretty decent, drinkable. Was 2$.

12 oz bottle, thanks for this masterpiece Poisoneddwarf- Pours clear copper with a thin off white head that disappears quickly. Aroma is oddly sweet, off noted metal, seems like corn, some hops. The taste is better, light and smooth, somewhat creamy, finishes dry which is the best part in my opinion. Nothing special here, another crappy beer from Pyramid.

Pretty good. I have always liked Pyramids brews. Never saw this one before and it's worth it!

Very good tasting beer from the very popular craft brewery, Pyramid. India Pale Lager is a cool idea. Whats next? India Pale Porter? India Pale Stout? I hope so.

Golden pour with an off white head. Nice clean flavor with a bitter finish. Pretty solid IPL, but lacked the body I was looking for.

Judging as Bjcp guidelines only and by the label(India Pale Lager). Appearance was clear amber with lasting creamy off white 1 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are sweet caramel, pale malts with slight floral spicy hops and clean lager yeast profile. Taste was malty Toffee, pale backbone with hints of spice, grapefruit, lemon and orange. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with light- medium body, average length sweet malty clean finish. As an Amber this would be good brew, but it says IPL its NOT. I would change the label, its false. A solid Amber though.
