    1st macro beer offered at the annual K-W crapfest of bad beer. Pale gold, vanishing head, fizzy. No aroma but a light whaft of cereal and dextrin. Weak mouth feel, thin, bland and clean. No off tastes but certainly very little taste period. Typical over processed adjuct Canuk macro sludge.

    I was surprised to see this. I was even more surprised to see that it was almost colourless. A very clear yellow with a huge head. The effervescence was very visible. The aroma was grainy.....typical lager. The flavour was macro lager in spades with a little bit of bitterness in the finish. Lost marks for appearance, but otherwise an okay beer.

    BP S5L4F6F5O7 On tap at the fox and hound on mckight road in pittsburgh. Appears pale yellow. Clean beery aroma. Slightly fruity on the initial sip. Clean and refreshing palate. A very tasty lager and not over the top. Off tart flavor impact. Easy and well behaved. Not bad at all. Nice on draft with good carbonation. That tart feeling keeps sticking its head up. Does have a medium bitter linger, but is not ever overwhelming. Good beer, I enjoyed it for the most part.

    This one came in a mix 12-pack of Keith's. I tried the first three of four bottles that came in the pack, straight from the bottle and I was quite surprised. It had more punch than their IPA and Red lager. Now for the fourth one, poured in a glass. Normal golden colour (with a touch of amber) with a big white creamy head that stays a while and leaves good lacing all around. Good fresh malty nose, and does not change into the usual disgusting lager fake aroma. Nice taste of grassy malt at first, heading into a grainy aftertaste. I really like this brew, as I am a bit sick of their IPA, and was not expecting anything from a lager.

    I tried this on a visit to the Red Lion on my Birthday a couple of weeks ago Poured a clean lager yellow with visable carbonation and a fresh clean aroma and taste. This would go well with food or is bold enough to stand alone. A very enjoyable lager
