Lion's Gate Lager has a light body, a very crisp palate and a soft, hop finish, which is imparted by the exquisitely gentle Czech Saaz hop variety.

[on tap at brewpub] Weak grain aroma. Clear dark straw, with a lacy, patchy white top. Clean, slightly dry malt flavour with detectable hops. Light body, medium carbonation, slightly tangy finish with a touch of ethanol.

Draft at brewery: Surprising amount of body. Decent flavor. Had some sweet bread dough. Mild bitterness, as expected. OK for a light lager.

on tap at brewpub, fri feb 26. Not terrible but bland, even for a lager. No offensive tastes or aroma, just plain.

Gravelle (104) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Has a light body, clean, dry flavour. A very crisp palate and a soft, hop finish. The worst of the Steamworks family. Not a horrible beer, just riding that middle of the road, which is what they were probabely going for being at a brewpub. SAFE!

Nice clear gold brew with a small white cap that fades too quickly. The aroma seems creamy.. huh? sweet fruit, vanilla or banana pudding. Soft caramel taste, odd mild honey, mild meat? what the hell? This is a tad weird. Light orange. Interesting but I am not a fan of this at all. High carbonation and feels a bit rough with a mild bitter finish that is off. Zero for two from Steam Works so far.

Right off the bat, I like that they named it after the local big suspension bridge in Vancouver. A light pale lager with some spicy bitter notes from the hops and a sweet pleasant malt presence. Nothing to write home about, but nothing incredibly terrible either.
