On tap at the brewpub. Has weak hops on the nose, with a decent yellow body and modest head. Flavour is nice breadiness with a dry malt finish. It’s one of the better craft lagers out there.

On tap at Yaletown, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out some grassy hops and light corn. Flavour is lightly smoky upfront, with a bit of peat, as grassiness. Oddly smoky, more like a rauchbier than anything. Decent stuff.

Tap. Pale straw with small head. Pretty bland lager with some corn and noble hops. The opposite of "zesty".

I suppose if Yaletown ever moves to Vancouver island, this will become Yaletown Island Lager. As lagers go, this one is pretty bland. Not much to write home about. Because Yaletown is a Micro/Craft brewer that makes for even less of an excuse. This is your typical pale gold beer with a white head. The weak aromas that Yaletown are famous for is present here as well. The taste is weak, not offensive, but nothiing to write about either.

Dirty yellow-orange color. Taste is watery and almost no aroma... The worst from Yaletown...

Cereal grain, bread, light sweetness, hint of noble hops. Pours golden, well filttered. Flavor of bread, grain, and noble hops. Light, with a touch of sweetness. Clean crisp finish. Nice pale lager.
