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.

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.
