This beer arrives at the table in an American pint glass, and appears a clear medium golden copper hue, with a thin white cap of head, that leaves the little bit of lacing that it could. It smells of crisp white cracker grain, and caramel malt. The taste is bready malt, that mild Brewsters yeastiness, caramel, and earthy, fruity hops. The carbonation is moderate, the body nice and solid for a lager, and it finishes a tad sweet. This is quite refreshing, and the weight, colour, and flavour indicate that the BA style for this is obviously wrong - it should be categorized as an American Red or Amber Lager.

500ml bottle poured into pint glass nov6 2010

A clear copper with moderate carbonation feeding a long lasting fingers worth of head that left a few patches of lace

S malty caramel, and dry cereal with a little tea and some bread

T not far from the smell, almost as if I sweetened tea with toffee

M thicker then expected and the flavors lasted longer then on would have thought

D I had little problems finishing the bottle, It could use some summer heat though

picked this one up at the Crowfoot Brewsters and can't be bothered to enter another Brewsters, far as I know they all serve the same beer I'm hoping someone will correct me if I'm wrong

One of Brewster's regular offerings, identified here as a pale lager. Although the beer is a light bronze hue with white head, fairly light, the aroma and flavor profile is more like that of an amber/red lager and I'd reclassify it as such. Beer styles are fuzzy categories I suppose. Aroma is fairly rich and malty, sweet with dry biscuits and herbs. Taste is similarly rich and aromatic, with a nice smooth wash of caramel in the finish and sparkly vinous fruit that recalls white wine. Light fruit and perfume that almost recalls tobacco add to the latter effect, but there is ample toasty flavor to keep things balanced and reasonably complex. Hops not prominent but keep things from getting too sweet. One of my favorites from the regular Brewster's crew.

500ml bottle picked up at the 11th Ave SW Brewsters in Calgary
A - bright clear copper, two fingers of tan head retained very nicely, notable lacing
S - notes of butterscotch, pale malt, fresh grass, and cream
T - pale grainy maltiness and a touch of butterscotch up front, a bit of a champagne type flavour, finishes with light grassiness
M - lightish body, smooth and well rounded, finishes just a ittle dry and somewhat buttery
O - a nice example of a lager in Canada that isn't simple adjunct yellow fizz, this has a smooth buttery maltiness quickly balanced by grass and grain, definitely impressed
