Although I enjoyed this lager, I think it could be much better with the use of more hops.

Metalchopz (3285) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2011
Originally rated July 2006. This lager is gold in colour with tiny bubbles coming up from 3-4 different spots. The white head is small and does not last very long. Pleasant nose of cereal malts and slight roasted ones. Crisp mouthfeel, quite refreshing. Taste of corn and malt throughout with a mild bitterness in the finish. Nothing exciting, but a tad better than most macro lagers.

341mL bottle poured pale golden color with small white head settling to spotty lacing. Aroma is malts and some hops. Taste is lightly sweet malt with a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Similar to most macros, except a little more grain malt and smoother finish.

VertBaconStrips (2374) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - JUL 7, 2011
Oooold review from some point in the summer of 2006. Poured out a clean light gold brew with bubbles. Somewhat smells like cereal with a bit of stink, grains and a faint fruit. Ok taste when cold. Grains, corn and light fruit - mostly malty and a hint of bitterness. Drink it quick while it’s drinkable. Fizzy.

Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe some light malt.

I’m not as upset with this beer as the majority of raters. It is definitely Big Rock’s least appealing offering, but it isn’t horribly bad, just pretty avergage. Macro pale lager style, with the only difference being a heavier malt presence, which, to say it again, isn’t bad.

hopdog (12083) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2006
UPDATED: APR 6, 2006 12oz bottle acquired in trade with BlankBoy (thanks - especially for letting me knock off anohter Province!). Poured a lighter and see through golden color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of grain, light citrus and some honey sweetness. Tastes of pretty much the same. Thin and on the watery side. Very much on the boring side.

341ml brown bottle. Golden with a small white cap. Sweet malts in the aroma. Very mild malt flavour with very faint citrusy hops, some grains. Light thin body, light carbonation.

Another purveyor that the water used makes a big difference. Well, its not bad in a pinch New Year’s Eve. But it is forgettable and plain, though some malt and even a hop or two for taste. More than a thin mouthfeel, so better than average for its style. Understated carbonation was appreciated.

Bottle. Pours a clear almost flat light gold with a spare diminishing white head. Quite poor looking. The sweet aroma of malt, grain and yeast is stale. The flavour’s even worse: crappy macro sweet grain Lager taste. "Made from pure glacial water"? Give me a break. This is crap.
