Island Lager

Island Lager is a clear, pale straw coloured brew from Vancouver, British Columbia's Granville Island Brewery. It comes in 341mL bottles and contains the standard 5% alcohol. Island Lager pours beneath a thin cap of ivory head. It has a grainy, slightly sweet aroma that is mild, but pleasant. There is a decent amount of malt driven, grain-friendly flavour, with just a hint of toastiness. It is definitely an easy brew to quaff.

This stuff is a pretty fair impersonation of a Western European premium lager. However, in my opinion, it doesn't have much presence to fill out the back end.

Rating: 7.0 out of 10.
