A - Granville Island lager is golden amber, sort of straw colored. Head is fluffy white with only not bad retention.
S - The aroma has an up front breadiness, bordering on grainy. Bready leads into a center with only a hint of malt. Nothing really builds here in the center. Hinted at malts move directly into a spicy, hop finish.
T - My first sip shows a pretty standard light bodied lager. The flavor starts out with subtle pilsner malts, mixed in with something bordering on bready and grainy. Centers offers more pilsner malts. Finish is dry and lingering.
O - I will say that Island Lager's malt flavors do make it stand out from other mainstream lagers a little bit. However, the malt doesn't really rise to the occasion in any way. It's just there, trying to keep from becoming outright grainy.

On tap at the brewery. Pours golden hue with white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of yeast, pale malt and hops. Body is light and smooth. Taste is of bready malt and light hops. Finish is long and slightly bitter. Nice session brew if you want something light.
