lowg (148) - Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2006
Puchased Pale Ale, Millstone and Gritstone at LCBO on sale. Millstone pours blonde with a small short-lived head. Aroma was mild sweet bready and a little nutty/buttery. Taste was the same, though a little watery for my liking; malts are there while hops are a little faint. Got better as it warmed. Still, better than pretty much every beer under the pale lager category, at least in Ontario. Overall a great summer beer, clean and refreshing.

pintbypint (3515) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
341ml brown bottle. Poured golden, white head composed of very fine bubbles, very smooth. Somewhat fruity aroma with some citrus and malt. Nice flavour with a bit of grainy, bready malt, light hops in the finish. Mild carbonation, light body, very drinkable.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Bottle thanks to hogtownharry! Poured a clear medium golden with a short cap of white head. Aroma was of lighter fruits (sliced pears and apples come to mind) and biscuity malts... very fine for the style. Flavor followed suit, and was on the sweet side... fruits were crisp and refreshing. Body was on the light side. Refreshing and smooth.. with no flaws noted.

blankboy (7634) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2005
Bottle courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear slightly bubbly yellow-gold with a spare diminishing white head. Fresh and sweet aroma of malt, grain and a touch of hops. Flavour of sweet caramel malt, honey, grain, light hops. Body is smooth and refreshing. If I had to nitpick I would say that its a little too mild. Surprisingly, this is one of the best lagers Ive ever had -- no fooling.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Bottle. Medium yellow, frothy medium white head. Fresh malt with slight hops in aroma. Taste is that of a nice lightly hopped lager - very fresh and very refreshing! Decent thin to medium body. One of the better Ontario micro lagers I have had, nothing outstanding, just a solid effort.

GregClow (3389) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2005
Bottle - courtesy of tupalev. Bright, clear yellow-gold with a small white head. Aroma is on the sweet side, with bready malt and mild floral hops. Good crisp mouthfeel. Simple but pleasant flavour - some honey notes off the top, sweet malt in the middle, mild grassy hops in the finish. Fresh and refreshing.

Lubiere (13655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2005
pale yellow lager with a thin white head. Rather fruity malt in aroma. In mouth, faint malt with fresh barley grains, barely hopped, rather thin.

HogTownHarry (6611) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2005 Bottle (341ml). Poured a pale, clear light brassy yellow with a decent foamy white head. Frankly in both aroma and taste its an okay non-macro lager - not too much corn, some mild hops, with wheat and fruit notes, definitely on the sweet side, but not off-putting. Mouthfeel is surprisingly lively and carbonated considering the bubbled disappeared about five seconds after the pour finished. The carbonation also keeps the slightly excessive sweetness under control, allowing the wan hop portion to surface, resulting in a taste that is refreshing and not at all like a Green Giant product. If I had to order a pale lager, I might just go with this one.
