I'm not really a lager fan but love local beer. On tap a refreshing and crisp beer. A nice golden colour. When it's the tap on special don't pass it by. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

On draught at Original Joe's in Edmonton - very genericy lager - but less fizzy than say molson. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Celtic Knot. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates like pop fizz. Aroma is grassy, hint of sweet malts. Taste is a plain jane pilsner-style lager. Mouthfeel is light, moderate to high carbonation. Finishes a little sweet, no hoppiness to speak of. Would make an ok patio or beach beer, but nothing to go nuts over.

Reimer96 (1161) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with a very small white soapy head. Aroma of pale malts, some sweet dme, cereal and a very faint floral hop. Taste cereal, pale malts and a minimal bitterness. Very crisp and clean in the palate just like the style should be. Might be a boring style but a good representation of said style.

Pours a clear golden colour with a small soapy white ring around the glass after a few minutes from an average sized soapy white head. Aroma is grainy, corn, cereal, a little fruity, faint green apples actually. Flavour is crisp, somewhat dry, moderate corn like sweetness and mildly bitter. Overall refreshing lager.

On draft at MKT Beer in Edmonton, AB. Not a very good beer. Not much aroma, very light and pale looking. Clean lager which helps the enjoyable factor of it. But nothing much but a flat beer with a familiar lager taste.

500ml bottle pours a light amber golden color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light cereal grains with some progressive hop bitterness. This is truly a premium lager and the typical macros don’t stand a chance against this brew.

2011-01-29 - shared by jerc & mabel with me and blankboy. 500ml bottle. Pours like bum urine - bright and concentrated "I’ve been boozing too long yellow" with a white fizzy head. Smells like a macro beer with weeds, corn, paper and icing sugar dumped in it. Tastes blech - same - need I say more? Ugly and harsh and avoid unless you need the tick.

I poured this from a 500 ml bottle, it pours a light amber color with a thick cap of white head. On the nose I get some light malt and light grains notes. It has an overall watery feel but still a decent amber, I pick up some hints of carmel and toasted malt notes. It finishes with a lingering spicy bite and hints of metallic. This was the first thing I have tried from these guys, I can say not a huge fan of amber but this was actually one of the better ones I have had.
