mcberko (7052) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
On tap, pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Nose and flavour are pretty standard, with feint notes of grass and hay. Clean and drinkable but ultimately boring.

Golden in the glass with average head. Whiff of yeast on the nose and a touch of grass. A touch of hops on the finish. Pleasant summer sipper.

WheatKing (1306) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
Weak malt aroma, clear amber, the head took longer to dissipate than most pale lagers. No spiderwebs of course. Lacks the golden crispiness of the truly great members of its style but it’s not that bad. A bit more dry than sweet, so that’s a nice surprise, I think that’s pretty rare amongst the pale lagers.

riversideAK (5624) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Nose pf bread grain light corn a little grass and earthy hop presence. Pale golden not much in way of head or lace. Flavor pf bread grain corn ligjt grass and bitterness. Grain bill of Pbr with higher hop presence. Not bad pale lager actually.

reebtogi (4362) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2011
Poured pale golden color with fast dissipating white head and virtually no lacing. Aroma is light grassy hops and bread. Taste is light malty sweetness and light bitter finish. Little carbonation and light body. Average at best.

bulldogops (1108) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2009
On tap at Howard Johnson (by the Commonwealth Pool). Clear golden pour with a strong white foam, amazing retention. Aroma is malts, grains. Taste is moderately hopped, malts, with a bitter finish that is still pleasant.

Eructoblaster (3103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2008
On tap at Maple Leaf Lounge, Vancouver Airport. Limpid golden body with a lasting white creamy head. Well balanced malty/hoppy aroma with bready notes. Decent taste that ends with a good bitter finish. Good Lager.
