fiulijn (21506) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 1, 2016
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouverganache (6087) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2016
Dark blond color. Quite nice malt character, the hops are a bit grassy. Robust body for the style. Not bad.
Can. Nose somewhat faint and fruity (more rind/pith than anything, doesn’t explode), pour clear burnished orange into copper with a very rocky bright white head. Taste light-medium sweet with light-medium malt and light breadiness, very pleasant fruity top notes, citrus with hints of wood, chewier crystal/amber type malt for complexity with little hints here and there of earth and biscuit, but not really bitter at all, save for a dash of Sam Adams bottom rounding. Touch of wildly unexpected fumy alcohol, something like corn, and very much in line with a NB recipe / house flavor. Extremely mildly hopped, no matter the varieties they list. Great medium body with juuust enough interest in the feel department. Still, fresh, clean, quenching, easy to down by the six pack, I’m sure I’ll have it again.

Bright bronze. Thin head. Light pale malt aroma. Has a mellow pale malt character. Quite well-balanced. Actually quite good. mcberko (19803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out crisp grassiness and biscuity malt. Decent hop content for a pale lager. Solid for what it is. reebtogi (6403) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 8, 2016
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton (New Belgium Tap Takeover) pours a clear golden color with a small white head leaving spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy and grainy. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a light malty sweetness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A respectable lager that is worth checking out on a warm summer’s eve.

Pours clear gold, big fluffy white. Aroma is blend of flowery, peppery hops with hints of malt. Flavor is more bready malt with hop bitterness, but without the flavor notes from the aroma. Mouthfeel is light and carbonated. FROTHINGSLOSH (8267) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Sampled on draft at Hough’s this beer poured a dark golden color with a large creamy off white head that left incredible lacing. The aroma was tart, citric and chalky. The flavor was tart, chalky and very perfumey. Long finish. Medium body. Pretty bad.
