CapFlu (4502) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 15, 2005
(Draught) Thin, white, creamy head with nice lacing with a clear, amber, non-carbonated body. Fruity chinook hops with peaches. Fairly chalky but quite good. Good malt and hop balance. Enjoyable!

Oakes (12446) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2005
Copper colour. Aroma is grassy, lemony and bready - quite promising. Rich pithy bitterness, some toast and light bread note over top. Sort of an "amber pilsner" like Jamtlands Barnsten. I’d prefer if it were without the toasty notes, though, but it’s not bad nonetheless.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2005
Lingering fluffy white head over a slightly hazy golden coloured beer. Aroma is mostly spicy hops. Saaz/Sterling aroma with a touch of light caramel malt. Flavour is also a combination of pale malt, a touch of caramel, and spicy and citrusy hops. Lemony (not cascady) flavour. Long bitter finish. Clean bitterness. Quite tasty and refreshing. A good pilsener, especially for this pub.

TimE (3154) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 18, 2004
An interesting take on the style. Highly hopped with PNW hops giving it an almost IPA like feel, but then a huge malt biscuity mouth balances things out driving home with a moderately dry finish.

Crit (3340) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2003
A decent offering from one of my less favorite breweries. Hazy amber, long lasting white head.Good lace.Decent body. Good malt profile with crisp dry hop finish
