Notes/Commercial Description:
Cameron’s Lager is pale golden in colour, this European lager is brewed with “noble hops”, the term noble hop refers to traditional varieties that have low bitterness and high aroma that have been grown for hundreds of years. Only the finest two row malted barley is used. Never rushed, this lager is fermented cold and long, to create a crisp, fresh and great for easy drinking occasions.

3.4/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Serving Type - 341ml bottle poured into a pilsner glass.

Appearance - Pours a clear golden colour. Looks like your typical euro-style lager, but maybe a bit darker. It poured with a finger of fluffy white head which disappeared pretty quickly, leaving behind a faint amount of lacing.

Smell - Lot's of grass and grains and bread. Pretty standard fare. There might be some light spicy notes in there as well.

Taste - Very bready - reminiscent of a good pilsner. Other than that, there's some grassy and spicy notes, mostly towards the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light-medium body. Almost heavy for the style tho? Carbonation is pretty high, makes for a crisp and satisfying finish. Yum.

Overall - 3.5/5

Pale straw in colour, topped by a finger of pale white head. Head is lacy but poorly retained. Mild cereal aroma, simple but with no apparent flaws. It tastes extremely clean, which I suppose is an appropriate yardstick to measure this style of beer by. No buttery or vegetal character. None of the green apple skin that mars many industrial lagers like Carling or Canadian. This just has a simple and delicate grainy flavour with the barest hint of hop bitterness, and an almost non-existent finish.

Light-bodied with pretty low carbonation for the style, a pleasant change from the prickly feel common to many industrial lagers. This wont excite the average Beer Advocate, and that's ok. This isn't meant for them. It's clean, simple, light, and meant to be all things to all people - or in other words, it's meant to be nothing to anyone. I think it succeeds.

3.13/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a nice semi-cloudy pale straw yellow color to it. It has a nice white head that dies down quite fast but leaves nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas give out hints of sweet bready and grainy malts with some grassy and floral hops.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a sweet bready malt character to it with light grain and grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: It has a low/medium carbonation with a thin and slightly watery overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.

Serving type: can

A- Pours a slightly chill hazed golden color. It doesn't have much of a head unfortunately, starting off with a thin fizzy layer, quickly settling into a thin skiff of foam. There is an average amount of carbonation rising to the top and the lacing is minimal too...looks like a standard lager with more coloration....nothing special.

S- The aromas are of malted barley and not much else, which is a definite positive for this style. Perhaps there are whiffs of yeasty bread but I don't find them dominant or anything. The finish contains some mellow hop bitterness, but the story here in terms of smell is the lack of adjunct.

T- The flavors are very nice, and this tastes like a lager should....clean and crisp with good grain and honeyed malt taste. Some biscuit flavor shows through and the finish is slightly bitter, but nothing much.

M- Like I mentioned before, this is clean, crisp and has more body than a standard lager. The carbonation scrubs the palate well, but helps the flavors to explode nicely. It's somewhere in between lite and medium.

O- This is a premium lager that anyone who enjoys the style would enjoy....I'd put this along the level of PBR and the likes in terms of similarity. Fine on it's own, this would also be good with barbecued meats too. I find this highly drinkable and would have no problem enjoying several of these in a sitting, but can't due to the lack of availability in my area. I recommend this one...good job!

341 mL bottle taken from a sampler pack of four. Packaged on November 8th of this year - so this is about as fresh as sampler pack beer from the LCBO gets, I imagine.

Pours a bright golden-yellow colour, topped with one finger of white head that is in a hurry to go somewhere else. Other than some wisps on the surface and a very thin collar, it leaves almost no remnants. Looks like a glass of apple juice from concentrate... and honestly the aroma isn't far off from that either as there are some definite tart green apple notes on the nose. Kind of reminds me of white wine. There are some boring grainy malt notes underneath this as well, but it smells quite fruity for a pale lager. I like it.

Up front the taste is pale malts, a bit grainy but mostly bready in nature. Tangy floral hops and honey with more green apple/white wine notes coming forward in the finish, and a lightly sweet aftertaste that doesn't linger. Only a bit of dryness to balance the sweetness. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation that makes this brew much more smooth than many pale lagers; almost creamy. Very easy to drink.

Probably one of the more interesting Ontario craft 'pale lagers' I have had, but still not really anything to write home about. This is not an especially well-balanced brew, but it manages to be tasty and refreshing nonetheless, which is really all I can ask from the style. If you're in the mood for a pale lager, you could certainly do much worse - but this isn't something to seek out.
