On tap, somewhere in one ofthe airports at some poin on my trip home from the maritimes. How do you turn a six hour flight into a fourteen hour marathon stopover odyssey? Book on points with Air Crapada! Anyway, I thought this was going to be a Molson Canadian clone that I’d have to choke down, but it was actually okay. The overly sweet adjuncty pale malts are still here, but there is actually some grassy hops in here, faint but present nonetheless. Not aweful, but not something I will be returning to either. A barely-there pilsener.

Whatup14 (583) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2012
Couleur d’un jaune très pâle. Arôme quelques peu florale. Goût léger, plus elle se réchauffe et moins elle est bonne. Plutôt ordinaire.

Powertrip (998) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
Single can purchased from an LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/06/2012. Colour: Dark yellow, light orange, minimal white head. Nose: The yeast and malt is light but present, and it mingles with a delicious vanilla presence. Light citrus in the background. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. Light lemon custard pie seems to be a staple from start to finish (but not sweet), vanilla appears again in the finish. The hops are not stringent or dominating but they play great background music throughout. A decent drink.

I tried this beer on May 13, 2012 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent gold colour with a white head that disappeared quickly. The aroma is grainy malt, some metallic to9nes, and a weak floaral bouquet. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is grainy with some sour and acidic tones. A pretty decent macro.

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
341mL. Oh joy, another Rickard’s. A clear gold to yellow pour creates a weak, suddy white head that leaves behind webby, white lace. Nose is small corn. Taste is very soapy and grassy hop dominant. Suddy mouthfeel. Very grassy. Not too bad and I can see they attempted a hoppy pilsener but the end result is a little too bland and I think most people will not be able to appreciate the subtlety.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2012
On tap at some bar. Clear yellow with a nice, creamy white head. Smells somewhat skunky. Taste is...surprisingly skunky, for a draft beer. Nice hoppy finish, though. Body is quite light, but with an okay creamy mouthfeel. Has some salvaging qualities, but otherwise, it’s highly disappointing.

Strangebrewer (791) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
can. Poured clear amber with a thin white head. Light bready malt nose. Average carbonation, dry. Flavour is grassy, some citrus, tastes like a wheat beer not a pilsner. Finish is a bit sticky and dry.
