Dockside Haupental Hefeweizen
On tap at Dockside, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out banana, clove and some citrus notes. Flavour is quite clean, with banana upfront, followed by clove, and a touch of citrus. Clean and refreshing. Actually pretty decent.

Dockside Railspur IPA
At Dockside. More ale then IPA, meaning it has more of UK flare. Backbone of malts and bread notes. The hops come through as more of a bittering element, adding some balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dockside Winter Bock
Draught at the brewpub, maybe 5.4% ABV
Hazy blond color. Nasty aroma, disinfectant. The flavor is more acceptable, with no discernible malt or hop.
Wrong.

Dockside Winter Bock
On tap at Dockside, pours a clear dull cope with a tiny head. Nose brings out skunky vegetal notes and herbal qualities. Flavour is almost sour, with herbal notes and boiled vegetables. What the fuck are they thinking selling this shit? Really bad.

Dockside Old Bridge Dark Lager
On tap at Dockside, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out tart notes, some roast and cocoa. Flavour brings out chocolate, roast and some unpleasant tart notes that shouldn’t be there. Palate is nice and thick, but the off notes kill what would be this brewery’s best beer (though that’s not saying much). Quite poor.

Dockside Pelican Bay Brown
On tap at Dockside, pours a hazy dark amber brown with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out notes of toasted nuts and light cocoa. Flavour brings out bitter cocoa powder and stale toasted nuts. It’s got that stale quality that they all have had so far. Not offensive but pretty weak and amateurish.

Dockside Cartwright Pale Ale
On tap at Dockside, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is very bland, with subtle notes biscuity malt. Flavour doesn’t strike me as much of a pale ale - there are some subtle fruity notes and not a whole lot else. Lifeless beer with not much character. Bad.

Dockside Johnston Pilsener
On tap at Dockside, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is nearly non-existent. Flavour doesn’t taste like a pilsner - weird subtle notes of skunky grass are in there somewhere. Not a whole lot of character. Not as offensive as the regular lager, but still pretty bad.

Dockside Marina Light Lager
On tap at Dockside, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of corn and straw. Flavour is bizarre, bringing out skunky vegetal notes. The skunky vegetal notes are overpowering. A macro light lager would be more pleasant than this shit.

Dockside Cartwright Pale Ale
Pint on tap at the brewpub pours a pale amber color with a small white head that leaves only small traces of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild hops and caramel. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a mild hop bitterness. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Very light in body and flavor compared to some of the northwest American pale ales from Washington and Oregon.

Pint on tap at the brewpub pours a hazy golden orange color with a small white head that leaves no lacing. Light orange zest aroma with some cloves and banana. Taste is an orange zest and grassy hop bitterness with some light malty sweetness with hints of banana and clove. Light in body and carbonation with a nice mouthfeel. A typical brew for the style, but nothing special.

Pint on tap at the brewpub pours a pale amber color with some pink hues and a finger of white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is toasty malts and mild hops with a hint of flowers. Taste is a sharp hoppy bitterness with some caramel malty sweetness. Light body with moderate carbonation and a decent mouthfeel. A refreshing and easy to drink lager with some unique flavors with the addition of the hibiscus.

Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness and a touch of lemon. Light bodied with good carbonation. Quite flavourful for a light lager and recommended for those who enjoy lighter beers.

Pint on tap at the brewpub pours dark brown in color with a small off-white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild roasted malts. Taste is a light roasted grain and mild hop bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium body with some decent carbonation leaving a tickle on the tongue. A little light for a schwarzbier, but still relatively tasty and decently balanced.

Unpleasant transparent red color, looks more lika a fruit juice. The aroma is influenced very strong by the contained berries. The fruity taste is quite nice and perfect for very ot summer days...

Dockside Railspur IPA
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy red-amber color; medium sized head. Some hop aroma and some smell of the water from the adjacent False Creek (i.e. stale) and fish. The flavor as well carries the bad traces of metropolitan municipality waters (which comes as a surprise in Vancouver); there is some caramel flavor, correct body strength but dry mouthfeel; strong bitterness, but not enough hop qualities shine here.
A lot of hops, but overall an uninteresting IPA.
