Small can clearance at Liquor Barn in north Burnaby. Wow, this is insipid! Very pale yellow, a bit of head, no nose, minimal flavor. Drinkable (barely) but I poured it down the drain anyway. 1.9

Can. Heavily carbonated yellow and quickly dissipating head. Bad rotten cabbage lager aroma. Flavour is metallic with some cloying hay. Really uninteresting and Im stuck wondering what the point of such a beer is.

exeter (529) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2015
Pours a golden colour with a fast disappearing head. Tastes grassy, lightly citrus and a strange flavour I cant quite nail down. Its a beer that requires time to love, and I am too impatient for that. Has an overly butter like taste. Maybe I got a bad batch...will go into BC and find a another...update will come

355 ml can from a fifteen-pack on sale at Liquor Depot, served in a footed lager glass. Its officially Spring today, a time when a beer drinkers fancy turns from rich porters and dark ales to crisp pilsners and pale lagers. Pours a golden straw color, with steady carbonation streams and a snowy white head that fairly races to extinction. Sweet cereal grains and a speck of noisome vegetal on the nose, and basically the same on the tongue; a touch of bitterness and slickness to a generally clean finish. Overall, Big Surf is basic lager, akin to Labatts marquee beers like Blue and Genuine (reviewed earlier), although with a couple of rough edges - still, for a "buck-a-beer" brand, its above par.

Gerbeer (3593) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 25, 2015
Can. Pours a very light gold with light fluffy head. Aromas of doughy malts, honey, and a little butter. Flavors of doughy malts and light fruit. Lots of carbonation. Nothing to write home about but one of the better local lagers.

robinvboyer (4493) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
Can in alberta. Pale straw pour, with a small white head. Pale malt, slightly sweet, and corny aroma with some very light grasses. Solid palette, and good carb. Refreshing finish, the malts are a little sweet, and some more hopping would be good, but overall its a decent pale lager, and good for what its trying to be.

Nothing wrong here with this lager. Kind of impressed me with the can and taste. No metallic tastes to speak of, but a rather a light grassy, citrus, cereal taste. Had no nasty lager aftertaste, but it was nice and refreshing, as it should be. It is perfect for any occasion as it says.

Move over so-so Canadian lagers, you have a new challenger! I would definitely choose this over other lagers. It doesnt feel nearly as corny, metallic or dirty. Hard to describe, like it wont give you that "I am drinking this SHIT just to hang out with my buddies I havent seen for years so Ill choke it down not to look like a pussy/whiner" feeling. You can crank a tonne of this pale, mildly tropical fruit, light roasted malt wonder into you and still hang with the crowd.

fiulijn (20321) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2014
Draught at Pumphouse, Richmond, BC
Pale blond color with creamy head. Simple aroma, some paper, a bit stale. Smooth mouthfeel, light flavor combination, and low bitterness; some paper, light acidity. Light fruity esters.
Mild beer for non beer lovers. Not offensive.
