2.6Pats Classic Lager
Draft - Buttery pale malts. Clear gold with a decent white head. Light butter, biscuit malts and some light fruity esters. Not good, but had worse.

1.2Pats Classic Lager
On tap at Patís Pub, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is your typical macro lager, with notes of skunky corn and grass. Flavour is clean enough, with notes of grass and skunky vegetal notes. Basically on the level of macro lagers, but with a touch more flavour to make it slightly more interesting. Obviously not good.

2.2Pats Classic Lager
Draught at the brewpub
The aroma is light and breadish. The flavor is watery, also killed by a polar temperature; the bitterness is low. Why bother brewing a beer on site if it tastes like Molson?

2.5Pats Classic Lager
Fairly grainy and sweet aroma is clean. Brilliantly clear golden body is topped by a low but lasting white head. Flavour is just as the aroma suggests: lightly grassy hops create light bitterness over the sweet and lightly grainy malt flavour. Light body with fizzy carbonation. Pretty straight forward and obviously meant for mass appeal but drinkable at any rate (although I must admit, I switched to Tree Hophead when t was time for a refill). Sampled on tap at the pub before the United Steel Workers of Montreal show in early 2008.

2Pats Classic Lager
Well, itís a Big Brew Technologies beer, which means that if you actually go to Patís youíre better off drinking the Hophead or Spy Porter that they also carry on tap.
The lager itself, though, isnít half bad for a macrobrew. It seems modelled after Lucky and hits the mark quite nicely. Golden colour with a nice sparkle. Unionmade aroma of light grain and acetaldehyde. Soft body, with some funk. It disappears quickly in the watery finish and has enough malt character to not completely suck.
