Had in Vancouver, BC. Had a decent looking head, and a very nice color. Was not as hoppy as I was expecting, but still a nice light pale ale.

On tap. Pours a reddish amber with moderate head. Aromas of light caramel and sweet malts with a hint of dried fruit. Flavors of toast sweet toasted malts. Maybe some grassy hops. Full and pretty simple but easy to drink.

Ferris (12890) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Draft - Grains with malt backbone. Malty with some cereal. Amber with a thin head. Refreshing and decent. Update - Grainy with some esters. Not as good as before which is saying very little.

650ml brown bottle. Orange-amber colour, big creamy white cap. Clingy and sticky lacing. Nose has grains, slight toast, caramel and light fruitiness. Taste has light toasted malts, caramel, faint fruitiness, light hops. Finishes dry and grainy. Lightish body with a lot of carbonation. Uninteresting.

On tap at Crave on Main St. A nice coppery color with little head. A nice balance of hops and malts. A very nice summer beer.

Lagerboy (1956) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
Clear reddish copper, foamy tan head slowly fades. Grassy hop aroma. Light bitter hop taste up front, balanced with a lighter malt background. Mild body and softly carbed. Sweet malts come to the fore as it warms. Finishes dry. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

reebtogi (5731) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2011
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a pleasing white head that settles to some sporadic lacing. Aromas of pale malts and citrusy hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a moderate hop bitterness. A decent attempt at this style but nothing really stands out. A little thin in the body and could use a little more malt.

Bottle 341 ml
Aroma: on sweet side , malty strong bone ,mineral feel , slight green hop hints. 6+
Appearance: hazed deep amber. Medium neatly contrasting snowy cap. Nice lace on glass.
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: Medium light in body. Citrus green notes slight woody hints , chewy malty texture. Black tea in the middle. Low carbonation. Slightly rough green feel at finish. Quiet bitter raw ending that hurt drinkability.

robinvboyer (4170) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2010
Deep amber pour, BIg sweet caramel malt nose, very little hops. Flavor was full bodied, and again quite big on the sweet caramel malts. Touches of english hops in the finish, but nothing much else.
