3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear gold color. The head was thin, lasting, and left some lace behind. Smelled of grass and light honey. Light bodied and delicately sweet. Pleasant flavors of fresh cereal grain, honey, buttered bread, and a bit of grass.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub
Blond color. The aroma is very light. The mouthfeel is dry, there is a light flavor of crispy and breadish malt, but there is a problem with the bitterness (too long hop infusion?). And at the end there is an impression of hay. Simple and with some flaws.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
pours a pale yellow color, light and almost clear with a small frothy head that fades quickly. Clean, with a very light honey malt background, but this tastes like a typical summertime touristy BMC beer. A decent lager but nothing to write home about.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on tap at the local brewery.
Generic lager appearance, no pros, no cons. Taste is also very generic with some grains, some malts nothing unexpected. Palate is fairly clean.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
On tap at Steamworks, Vancouver. Gold colour with thin white head. Pukey lager malt aroma, stale carboard. Thin in mouth. Faint hop on end. Not awful, but pretty tasteless.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light nose, pale gold color, fluffy white head. Creamy grainy malt base goes by quickly. Buttery in the middle. Tingly hop bitter that spreads across the mouth along with the fizzy carbonation. Not the best lager, but drinkable.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pale golden. Buttery malt aroma. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel and light-medium body. An unpleasant amunt of boiled vegetables followed by a finish with low bitterness. I wouldn’t be able to tell it from a Heineken.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild, somewhat grainy and sweet malt forward aroma with some light notes of citrus hops. Clear golden body is topped by a low, fine bubbled, white head that recedes to a lasting cover with good lacing. Grainy, toasty and cereal malts in the flavour with herbal and citrus hops and light bitterness. Medium light body with lively, crisp carbonation that engages the tongue. Sampled on tap at the brewpub after the Grey Cup 2005.
