22 oz bottle from a local "mom and pop" convienience store. $2.79 Pours a clear lightish amber colour ( like darker honey) with a nice sized frothy and thick off white head. Ok spicy/floral hop aromas..bread like malts. Good spicy hoppy taste..sweet bready malts balance in the back. nice. Mouthfeel is fine medium carbonation and medium thick..drinks real well. Overall really nice little amber lager here..not bad at all ( i find myself saying that often with Pyramid nowadays).

Very enjoyable brew. Laid back and mellow like you expect from a lager. A slight hint of hops, hence the "IP" nature. Overall, quite flavorful.

~citrusy hop and spicy hop aroma with bread, quite pleasant. ~Pours an amberish gold color with lasting creamy yellowish head, surprisngly hazy with visible particles. Strange for a lager..hop particles from dry hopping perhaps ~Citrusy hop and spicy hop flavor with caramel and bready malts. A bit bland. ~medium bodied with medium high Co2, lingering bitterness. ~Not as clean as I was expecting, Ill try another later. Drinkable, I rather just have a Sierra Nevada Pale ale.

12 oz bottle from Evergreen Discount. Amber and clear appearance with a small, dissipating, off-white head. Aroma of toasted grains, light toffee, citrusy hops, light pine and hay. Flavor of mild malt sweetness and light bitterness. Pretty smooth with a light to medium body. Drinkable, it’s OK.

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 @ Greg’s 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.
