Draught, as Logger Lager, at the winking Judge- Pale straw and pours a fluffy white head with nice lace left behind. Nose is chalk full of lemons and hay with good biscuit and some sweet grain. Slightly sweet grain and pale malts make up the flavour profile, there is also a bit of biscuit and slight bittering hops towards the finish. Above average Canadian pale lager.

wow. This has to be the WORST value beer I have ever tried buying at the Beer Store.

Clear pale gold w/ large white head. Aroma is fruity & mildly grainy. Light, juicy feel. Clean, grainy flavour w/ a light hop bitterness.

Pale golden colour with a white fizzy head. The aroma is fruity with green apple and a a little malt. The body is semi-sweet with a fruity middle and not much finish. A fairly alright mainstream lager that’s cheap.

The commercial description ends with "...to appeal to the tastes of the mainstream beer drinker." I think they’ve accomplished that. Looks like the ubiquitious pale lager, perhaps a bit more rich in its coloring. The aroma is pretty faint, some sweet malts, canned corn, and a hint of metalllic bitterness. It tastes better, the malt dominating with a surge of grassy bitterness coming in at the finish. Not too bad.

Bottle pours mid-golden, rimming the glass with bubbles before ejecting them upwards towards a fuzzy white head. Green leaves and butterscotch in the aroma. Buttery diacetyl takes over the flavor... and I KNOW this was better when I sampled it on tap 8 hours prior. Damn it! I enjoyed it earlier as a solid Pale/Premium Lager, but this bottled batch is really off. (No bottle code, but purchased and sampled 06/07/07.) Scores averaged.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 On tap at Freshwood Grill - came a clear golden hue with a decent white head. Aroma of grassy Euro hops and some sweet malt. Flavour profile similar to a macro pale lager, but with quality ingredients. Grainy, noble-hopped, and bready - a refreshing lager that I was pleasantly surprised by. Alcohol shows itself a bit too much. Not something I’d go out of my way to get, but decent and highly quaffable nonetheless. I think I prefer this to their ale.

Had a glass at the brewey, fresh from the tap. This is nice, I preferred it to my experience with the ale! This is their buck-a-beer offering, and they’ve done well. Tastes like a craft brewer trying to do mass-market appeal, resulting in a palatable, kind of tasty alternative to regular-priced macro lagers. I’d buy this over a case of Blue or Canadian any day. Ultimately it’s still a pale lager made on the cheap, and it was served a little too cold for me to detect everything that the beer had to offer, but if it’s available to you, and you want a buck-a-beer, give the nice people at Niagara’s Best your support. Better than the Lakeports and Lakers for sure!

Bottle fresh from the brewery. Light golden yellow body with white head. Grassy aroma. light in all the ways that makes this beer just a good cheap standard to drink with out being too overly offended. Hopefully this beer comes into my area. It would be a good beer to have around the house for guests.
