CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 (355ml bottle) Part of the Phillips mixed box. Very corn flavoured and macro-brewery nose. I suspect this is supposed to be a funny take on Bob & Doug McKenzie’s movie ’Strange Brew’. Sadly, the joke is on us as this could be Phillips worst offering.

Clear golden pour, small, but very lively white head. Pleasant pale malts in the nose, with some very subtle, but present dried, grassy hops. A lovely crisp, lovely mouth feel. A clean and crisp finish. Light bitterness, some light hopping, slight malt sweetness, some grasses, and even a touch of lemon zest. For what it is, its quite good. Probably the best pale lager ive ever had.

probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2014
341 ml bottle in a mixed pack from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear pale straw with a fluffy white head. Aroma: Bright, lemony hops, faint light malt graininess, a little green, grassy, peppery, a touch resinous, clean. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly energetic carbonation, creamy. Flav.: Light malt graininess, citrus, a little grassy and peppery, a bit of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango), resin; dry with nice bitterness and a clean, hoppy finish.

Coo loo coo coo, coo coo coo coo.

Spab (4081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2014
341 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Natural Selection BC Craft Brewers Sampler Pack). Pours a golden yellow with average-sized white head. Aroma is bready with a hint of corn and some grassiness. Flavour has bready graininess, a little fruit and a little corn and a decent grassy, lightly floral hoppiness. Average body. Nothing too special, but for the fact it’s a pale lager that is perfectly pleasant.

2.6
pintbypint (3831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
341ml brown bottle. Pale yellow, a bit of haze. White foam. Nose is grainy and light. Taste has a sweet start, grainy, light grass hop notes. Dry end, a bit of lingering grass. A bit better than your average pale lager but nothing to go out of your way for.

2.8
northropfrye (3691) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
Light yellow body white not much head a touch of soapy lacing. Sweet grain floral yeast Aroma. Taste is slightly sweet grain with a dry finish. Okay.

3.7
cfrancis (3574) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2014
Pours hazy gold with a small white wisp. Aroma is light grain and a hint of hop. Taste is crisp, light biscuit malt and terribly refreshing. As Pale Lagers go, this one is a keeper.

3.1
Metalchopz (3529) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 29, 2014
Part of the BC Craft Brewers Guild Natural Selections 6 pack (2014). Pours a clean light golden-yellow colour with a frothy white head, decent retention and lacing. Soapy aromas with some citrus sourness. This blends in to a nice grassy hop nose. Light taste with not much malt and just a little more hops. Lightly dry and pretty refreshing for a summer brew.

3.4
GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from BC craft beer sampler pack at the LCBO. Clear and bright yellow-gold with an abundant white head. Clean aroma of bread crust, light caramel, bit of boiled corn, light grassy hops. Simple and well-balanced flavour of lightly sweet and toasty malt & grassy not-too-bitter hops. A straight-up, well made pale lager. Not my usual choice of beer, but I’ve gotta respect it for being a good example of the style.
