Nice Logo, but I like Alpine much better. This is not bad for the style.. I hate Galena hops..

Bottle @ BBQ. Solely a degenerate Canadian province tick here. Clear yellow beer with some white foam. Perhaps not surprisingly, its kind of skunky. Typical green bottle pale lager garbage there. Otherwise, its mostly just your typical pale lager here with some sweet grains and cereal qualities. Get a little bit of that apple juice sweetness, too. Not a whole lot going on here, but you could drink it just fine at a party.

bottle or can. Recently re-discovered this one, very easy drinking and simple. Nice on a summers day or just for pints at the pub

Bierdimpfe (575) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 31, 2017
Bright pale straw color with moderate activity. Slightly frothy and foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with good amounts of legs. Flavors of sweet grains, corn syrup, barley, lemon, light caramel, floral spices. Cereal feel, slightly syrupy, lots of sugars with mild sharpness. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish, the malts are heavily sugary on the tongue, with lingering soft leafy spices and a hint of skunk from probable noble spices. Feels a bit adjunct, but way less than most macro brands. Missing some sharpness but its more of a tender sugary lager that doesnt have strong bitterness. The freshness is pretty good and although the flavors are a bit faint, they are not off and unpleasant. Overall average quality craft, good drinkability for a macro lager.

Bottle. Pale yellowy gold in colour. Malty; sweet malts, maize, honey-like. Fruit; hint of citrus fruit. Hoppy; hint of grassy hops; little bitterness. Sweet malty fruity throughout. Mild bitterness in the finish. Fairly bland. (2010-05)

Drjohnrock (753) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2017
From old notes--12 ounce bottle from Remke/biggs (now Remke Market) in Delhi Township, tasted on July 21, 2012. Sweet grainy aroma with not as much skunkiness as expected considering the green bottle, medium gold hue, moderate white head, mostly sweet flavor with not as much industrial taste as I might have thought. In the increasingly rare instances where pale lagers are all thats available, this is the one to have since A-B messed up Rolling Rock and Straub American Lager isnt widely available (but if Straub were available, I would have it instead).

Just a good solid Canadian beer from the east coast. A brew for having a good time.

Sweet cheap lager with characteristic urin aroma. Thin grainy body without great outstanding temper.

lokis333 (447) - Birai, LITHUANIA - JAN 10, 2017
Clear gold color with tall white foam. Aromas sweet light malts with touch of light hops too giving it fresh zesty lager feel. Palate, light body with light texture and high carbonation, leaving extremely light to no finish. Taste, balanced and fresh of peas, greens. Overall, pale lager, but nothing wrong with it, simple, watery atleast loks and smellsnice. Drinkable

Pre-pour thoughts. Green clear bottle. Pry off cap. I expected twist off. No freshness date. Nice engraved bottle.

Pours a very clear light golden straw color. Very well carbonated. About two fingers white fizzy head. Short lived head. Poor retention, poor lacing.

Aro!a is euro lager. Sweet. Bready. Spicy hops. Hops overpowers everything else.

Taste is euro lager. Hops are spicy and pretty bold, but not bitter. Its watery. Rice maybe? Nothing really complex, but worsens as it sits.

Mouthfeel is light body. Refreshing, watery, crisp and dry. Theres a little hop bite at the very end.

Overall, its pretty good. Nothing really wrong with it. The bitterness at the end sort of hurts it a lot in my book. Its not something I think I would buy again, but wouldnt turn down if offered. I might recommend it.
