This is a guzzle after work beer. I am a supporter of Vancouver Island Brewery so i drink this on occasion. nothing wrong with it,but it is not special in any way EXCEPT that it is much better then the rest of the Canadian lagers and that is not saying much really.

Light body, nearly extinguished. Fine and little long-lasting foam. Enough fizzy. Little personality.

Blond and clear colour with a thin head. Aroma is malty and little else. Flavour is boring and reminds me of a macro.

Golden blonde colour, viery thin white head. Pale malt aroma, some floral hops. Flavour is very typical and similar to aroma. Light bitterness.

This stuff is really bad, it's the worst beer Vancouver Island makes, barely a notch above commercial beer.

Dark gold with white head. Lightly fruity malt nose. Sweet fruity malt flavor that is decently hopped.

I forgot that I had this beer until I was surfing the site. The lady and I enjoyed a thick juicy cut of beef at a steakhouse in Victoria along with one of these. Very good for the style. Very good malt flavor for a lager. Sweet in the finish.

Deep gold, with a soft, sweetish flavour and plenty of Willamette hops giving way to a sweetish fruitiness.
