fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2011 2011-03-16, draught at the brewpub, 5-2-4-2-8=21
Blond color. Light aroma, dirty water. Very weak mouthfeel, watery flavor, light hay touch, low bitterness. Poor.

2008-07-15, draught at the brewpub, 4-2-5-2-9=22
Pale blond color. There is 10% of a crispy Lager in here (the flavor; because the aroma is quite... Dirty water), but the good result is still far away.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2008
One of their regular house beers. On draught at the brewpub in downtown Vancouver (Yaletown sector), Canada. Pours a clear golden blonde brew with a creamy white head that has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of light white bread malt, a little more fruity character than the Short Sleeve Pils with a touch of corn and grassy hops. Taste is smooth, light bodied with a corn/light white bread malt with a hint of citrus. Finish is semi-sweet with a good balance of light bread malt and citrus hop bitterness.

presario (4688) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2007
Sample glass. Pale still yellow. Faint wisp of head. Light grain aroma. vegetable taste and feel for some reason brings Anchor Steam and Harp to mind. OK.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2007
Sampled on tap at the brewery. Light golden colour with a thin white head. Nose is faint and the little that is there seemed malty. Corn in the mouth but very little flavour. Very generic.

harrisoni (14009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2006
On tap at Yaletown, Vancouver. Pale gold, thin white head. Dead stale malt aroma, dead malt in mouth. Then nice attack of hop bitterness on a sprizey finish. Good finish, rest is a bit empty.

Skinnyviking (7177) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2006
Draught. Off-white small but lasting head. Clear light golden body. Relatively sweet malt aroma. Sweet caramel flavor.

CapFlu (4582) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2006
(Draught) On tap at Yaletown on June 21, 2006. Like heavy sour cream were either added early or something broke down? Tart hops and soured mash at the brewpub makes me question why brewers don’t pull their spoiled beers??? Yuck.

pivo (2577) - GERMANY - APR 11, 2006
Gold color, low clingy head. Toasted malt base, light. Some bitter from hops. Medium body. Clean palate. Decent lager, though not so thrilling.
