COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A cool, slow fermentation yields slight notes of citrus, pairing nicely with the aroma contributions of the Centennial and Cascade hops. Finishing dry, this slightly malty ale with snow white foam has a distinguishable Pilsner flair.

Rating #1722 - 2015.06.03 - Bottle from CBI. Clear golden pour, steady white foam that bubbles away slowly to a soapy ring. Aroma is grassy malts, hints of caramel, lemon. Taste is a mild sweetness, honey, citrus followed by a mild hop bite. Pleasant.

DeanF (2522) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2016
Bomber from somewhere or the other in Albeerta/Beertish Columbia, who knows at this point. Chilled, kinda, kinda like me, some say. (...Some don’t). Head isn’t too spectacular, kinda looks like an IPA with foggy gold and all that. Skunk cabbage aroma, boring lager, slight corn grain, blah, well it’s a north american golden ale after all. Flavour is light and slight lager, hop hints, crisp lemon, vague grain, okay lager style where you barely know what you’re drinking. Hey, that’s okay. I guess. Even if I get your phone number tomorrow morning don’t expect me to call you. M’kay?

DuffMan (10664) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2015
Bottle, shared with Rockley. Deep gold, white head that lasts forever. Grainy, crisp, with grassy hops and assertive sharp bitterness. This drinks like a Northern German pilsener. Excellent.

3.4
AgentAle (1809) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2015
Aroma is light citrus, earthiness and roasty malts. Light clove and honey aswell. Taste is a sweet and medium rich malt body which transitions into a nice hop depth which is of clove, pinecone, and zest. Good but not great. Appearance is a hazy gold with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

2.3
Crit (4057) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
Hazy gold,fast fading beige head.Vague malt in nose & palate.Lightly fruity with light hop bitterness in finish which doesn’t seem to blend

3.4
Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
Bomber. Clear lighter orange copper, smaller off-white lasting foam. Spicy herbal malty aroma. Taste is lightly bitter spicy herbal hop, milder unsweet pale malt, some caramel and citrus emerges. Average carbonation, light bodied, lightly hopped. Not too exciting, but a tastier, better blond. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2014
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Golden color, clear. Mild malt aroma. Quite good malt flavor, a bit bready and caramelly, with a biscuity hint, with correct bitterness.
Clean beer. Pleasant.

reebtogi (6378) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 23, 2014
650ml bottle pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head that settles down to reveal only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is citrus and grass with some grainy notes. Taste is a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A well crafted blonde ale that is definitely worth checking out.

3.6
mcberko (18930) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is dry and crisp, with crackery malt and grassy pils hops. Flavour is very well-balanced, with a big hoppy profile and a bone dry crackery malt backing. Highly thirst-quenching, with very high drinkability. Now this is how you do a blonde ale. Very nice.

3.5
CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2014
2014 Great Canadian Beer Festival in Victoria. Pours a thin white head atop a bronze coloured body. Nose of grain. Very sharp hops, with a mellow corn malt base. Very refreshing.
