3.18/5  rDev +14.8%

Poured from 11.5oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a thick sudsy white head which slowly recedes with moderate lacing. Color is clear straw with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: lightly toasted barley malt dominates with a bit of grassy herbal hops in the background. Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a quite dry finish.
Flavor: sweet barley malt, some corn sweetness, some mild hop in the finish. There is also a bit of paperiness and a bit of green apple.
Overall: a mild, pleasant, refreshing lager.

2.83/5  rDev +2.2%

Poured from a pint can into a shaker pint glass. A semi-aggressive pour produces about 1.5 inches of creamy, frothy head. This settles down to about 1/8 inch and sticks around for the duration. The beer is a pale straw color with pretty active carbonation.

Light corn and cooked vegetable characteristics are in evidence in the flavor and aroma, but nothing too off-putting. Actually, it's rather watery in flavor and mouthfeel. Maybe just a slight tang of metal. I don't detect any of the skunkiness that I associate with Canadian brews. The finish is quite clean with just a tad bit of lingering sweetness. Some light floral hops are perhaps in play, but barely detectable.

This is a clean tasting, light bodied beer with good head retention, and rather easy to drink. You could do a lot worse with the AALs out there. I paid $6.99 for a six pack of pint cans at a Safeway store.

Note: I modified this review after drinking about three of these in succession. The wateriness really gets to me after awhile. Though I don't expect much for the style, this beer could really use some flavor.

3.41/5  rDev +23.1%

Pours bright straw gold with a inch of white soapy foam that fell fast and left no lace just a thin ring. Nose is pristine. Light sweet corn and a bit of grain. No fruit. The hops show up only to give a bit of grass. Taste is crisp, clean and mild except for a bit of bite from carbonation. Has a thin body with a touch of dry cracker and sweet corn. No fruit. I really like it. As it warms rather than discover a bunch of off flavors that compel you to drink this quickly, this one shows off a bit of water that I would say tastes like new snow. They claim to use mountain stream water in their brewing.
