Can in mixed pack. Light gold. White head. Grain and grass flavour with a tingle and faint pepper note. Full round body. Relatively plain. turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 29, 2010
Can. Probably the palest beer I have ever seen, ginger ale is several shades darker by comparison. Decent head that lasts. Hop aroma is fair. Taste is crisp, with light , slightly sweet body. Ok for the patio on a hot summer day, but that’s about it. Definitely serve this one well chilled. jonas (8280) - Garching close to the monks, GERMANY - JAN 15, 2010
Can. Pale incontinent yellow. Low head. Light corny aroma. Lightbodied, slight bread base. Forgettable pale lager flavours, light body. Made for the crappy lager crowd no doubt. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 13, 2010
12oz can. Small white head atop crystal clear light straw body, some lacing. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, corn, light grass. Taste is medium sweet, grass/straw, light corn. Light body, light acidity. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2009
I just poured this but I’m rating it after 2 sips. This is just a shitty lager. I wasn’t expecting it, honestly, which made me grimace quite a bit after the first sip. I haven’t had a crap lager in ages. Most craft lager is some kind of German style (pils, helles, etc) so when the American piss-water hit my mouth I was aghast. Don’t come into this expecting anything but. This is Molson in a fancy package, nothing more.

Macro-lager (pale straw) color, but leaves a large, white, rocky head. Clear enough to read through the glass. Leaves chunky lace on the glass.
Raw grain aroma. No hop.
Smooth flavor, but it has elements of the macros, particularly in the swallow, which has a thin flavor similar to spent raw grains. I wonder if there are adjuncts in this brew. Better body than most of this style. I’d ask that they hop this a little more in the future. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

12oz can. Better than alot of Canadian beers but not much to this one. Extremely light on color, taste and body. Drinkable, but so is water which is what it resembled. I was expecting more from this one based on the decent Red Racer Pale Ale and IPA offerings. MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 11, 2009
Oh! Such a disappointment after the excellent Pale Ale and IPA from the brewery. Piss-yellow colour, almost no aroma, not much taste, and the mouthfeel of a light beer. Thank God the six-pack was a gift; I’d be choked if I’d spent my own coin on this stuff. humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2009
I’m not sure if I’m drinking the springboad lager or the premium lager, the can says classic lager. Pours light straw colored with thick but quick-to-dissipate white cap. Aroma is a mild fresh flower but dewy grass and fresh rain predominate. Taste is bready light malt, sweet-grass hops and light crab apple. Finish clean and brisk. Refreshing.
