Can. Light golden with white head. Light malty aroma with hints of spicy hops. Flavor is clean with malt & butter with subtle hop bitterness bite in the finish. an Ok lager, especially for a canned one. highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 3, 2005
Moderate Canadian thirst-quencher. Pale gold, thin head. Yeasty aroma with soft buttery notes. Quenching palate with a ’what happened?’ finish. Some cedary hops. stephen louis (166) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
This is a guzzle after work beer.
I am a supporter of Vancouver Island Brewery so i drink this on occasion.
nothing wrong with it,but it is not special in any way EXCEPT that it is much better then the rest of the Canadian lagers and that is not saying much really.

Light body, nearly extinguished. Fine and little long-lasting foam. Enough fizzy. Little personality. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2004
Blond and clear colour with a thin head. Aroma is malty and little else. Flavour is boring and reminds me of a macro.

Golden blonde colour, viery thin white head. Pale malt aroma, some floral hops. Flavour is very typical and similar to aroma. Light bitterness. Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2004
This stuff is really bad, it's the worst beer Vancouver Island makes, barely a notch above commercial beer. Crit (4057) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 14, 2003
Dark gold with white head. Lightly fruity malt nose. Sweet fruity malt flavor that is decently hopped. Andrew196 (1993) - Katy, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2002
I forgot that I had this beer until I was surfing the site. The lady and I enjoyed a thick juicy cut of beef at a steakhouse in Victoria along with one of these. Very good for the style. Very good malt flavor for a lager. Sweet in the finish. MarshallMac (143) - West Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 4, 2002
