I had 3 of these today (one I inhaled) as it was hot and I was on the bike cruising the “minni-country” boondocks all day. The waiter (a dead ringer for the geek in the 50s Black label ads) called it "House amber dry". Amber it was not (more a dark gold) but dry it was… and refreshing under the circumstances. Definitely a light Canadian draft lager. It was marginally superior to the OV or Blue they usually pump out at these retro country draft houses. They serve this stuff fairly cold, which helps cover the rough edges of its short lagering period. Taps a darker gold with a 2cm cap that reduces to a small white ring ...aroma is subdued grainy, musty,… lots of sparkle to the palate, mild malt body and a dry finish with some kind of (Oaks just about nailed it) "funky" after taste. A better than average Canuck draft for the type of place/time/ it represents....a local landmark roadhouse that slings trays full of cold draft to blue collar patrons. With the exception of the picture window brew kettles, the place hasn’t changed since my parents took me here as a kid for pigtail n’ kraut dinners and they say it hasn’t changed a lot since they went there in the 60s.

Wow, this is a place that probably has not changed much over the years. The addition of brewing equipment did little to affect this place and their shows that. The beverage was cold and drinkable, unremarkable at best. The building is old, has a bank shuffleboard which is unique and a couple of videos. There is also a hotel next door, which is not impressive but it is cheap. I will stop back anytime in the area for a quick one and for a road/pee break, I love the old feel and nostalgia to the place.
