JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2011
Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The aroma has a touch of pale pils malt and some light grassy hops. A fairly light bitterness, but it’s decently balanced. Okay - if a bit standard.

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.

16 ounce can shared by KInz at the 19th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a clear pale golden color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of grassy, astringent hops, pale malts. The taste is grassy hops, pale malts, stone fruits. Thin-medium bodied.

DuffMan (6462) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
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.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 29, 2011
A sucker for punishment picks up the mix pack for the office so he can try this. Bottle. Gold with a nice white head. Some light scent but hard to pinpoint. Plain but there is a bit of a pepperiness to the finish. Unfortunately there is a bit of lemon in the body that has just enough ingredients to come across as rough.

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 22, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head that settles to leave a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grassy hops. Taste is malty sweet with some grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body and decent carbonation. A slightly above macro brew quality.
