On tap at the Boat House in Vancouver.
I don't know what is more disconcerting:
a) that the bartender listed this as the Bartender's Choice for his happy hour?
b) that the happy hour 12 oz beer cost $6 US/CDN
quite frankly, I homebrew a fair amount and sample an ungodly amount of beer....
had quite a few Canadian beers that knocked my socks off....however, this was not one of them...
anything special? hardly...
mouthfeel was average....thats all...
If I was blindfolded I would have guessed this was Dos Equis...

Draft: Poured a golden/amber color lager with a medium size foamy head with OK retention. Aroma consists of light malt presence with light sweet notes form honey. Taste is also dominated by light caramel notes with sweet honey finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. This is almost closer to a Vienna then a straight lager but refreshing nonetheless with limited amount of complexity.

3.11/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
341ml bottle poured into a pint glass. ABV 4.7%.
A - Poured a deep gold with a thin white head, head reduced to some surface bubbles, minimal lacing.
S - Light grains, hint of honey, some floral. Pretty light.
T - Mild sweetness with a hint of honey, low bitterness in the finish.
M - Medium carbonation, medium body, some stickiness, clean finish
O - The honey is barely detectable. Overall this beer is inoffensive, easy to drink yet one dimensional and easily forgettable. Despite that I wouldn't refuse one if offered.
