BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Steamworks Brewing Company
British Columbia, Canada

Style: American Pale Lager

Alcohol by volume (ABV): not listed

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
While ales are fermented for relatively short periods of time at room temperature, lagers employ a special variety of yeast and much cooler fermentation temperatures to achieve their truly clean, dry flavour profile. Our Lion's Gate Lager has a light body, a very crisp palate and a soft, hop finish, which is imparted by the exquisitely gentle Czech Saaz hop variety. The Lions would approve.

Had a pint on draught from Steamworks itself. Really clean feel with a sweet(ish) breadt finish. Really nice

I am transcribing this from notes that I took last summer. Poured on-tap at the Steamworks Brewing Pub in Vancouver, BC, it was served in a pint glass. This beer is a bright, vibrant gold coloring with lots of bubbling. Light, short layer of big bubbled, airy head. The smell is toasted and malty. Flavors of toasted oats and slightly sour, musty characteristics. My wife took a sip, scowled, and said "Bud" and left it at that. There is a musty, slightly sour aftertaste with a sharp, crisp finish. Not overly wonderful by any means.

Gaztown location. Saaz hops. A little lace. Some perfume aroma. Buttery, caramel, apple juice and above-average carbonation.Light colour and tiny head. Some astringency right through. So-so lager and one of the weaker ones of an otherwise acceptable lineup.

A - Clear straw with a decent head/lacing, especially for style.

S - Sweetish aroma with a crisp, light hop nose.

T - Slightly tart with a mild bitterness and malt.

M - Light bodied with a medium carbonation. Not crazy fizzy like a lot of light lagers.

D - Not bad at all, given the norm for the style. Just an above average, well made pale lager for the masses. Delivers a bit more than expected, with nothing off.

I found this beer to be quite drinkable with a full body. The style is a tip of the truckers cap to the Molson drinkers but really this is half decent. I prefer this to the poorly finished IPA. A decent take on what is really an average style. Drink the Pils though as it is their best beer,
