fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013
Beautiful copper color, small head. It has a light aroma of cereals and some corn. The flavor has some corn before light cereals; the mouthfeel is quite dry, and the bitterness low, without hop qualities.
It’s a poor Lager, not even close to a Märzen (just the color).

Large bottle. Amber color, fizzy white head. Pleasantly sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of caramel. Not bad for a lager.

Lagerboy (1935) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
Clear light copper, creamy white head settles and lasts. Grainy malty aroma. Bitter lager malt taste, somethings off here, funky and dirty. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Smooths out a bit, finishes oily and bitter. Lifeless and boring. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a BC Signature Liquor store in Abbotsford, BC on 10/22/2012. Colour: Light brown with minimal head. Nose: medium roasted grain and some freshly boiled plain pasta. Dry earth dirt. Light touches of under-ripe fruit. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium sour. Some salty mustard, notes of extra dark cocoa nibs, antipasto, a sour kick to finish. A bit cloying. Quite drinkable.

This is a dark golden beer with no head. It has a caramel flavour, creamy and quite sweet. It’s not great but goes well with curry tonight.

650ml bottle. Reddish amber with frothy beige head that fades fast. Bready caramel with roasted oat aroma. Lightly sweet. Very mild on the palate. Clean and crisp, but lacks character.

WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - SEP 28, 2012
Bomber. A pretty heavy version of the style, with caramel present. Somewhat crisp and toasty, but a bit sour, not a clean lager as I was hoping for... I swear that mine was slightly off.
