BeerMountie (117) - Placentia, Newfoundland, - JUL 12, 2006
bottle. Pours a very pale yellow with a white head. Taste of corn and grain. I don’t know why this beer is so popular. Is it the commercials?

gilvanblight (780) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
Pale golden pour with very little head. Weak scent, watery and a touch grassy. Easy to drink. Watery with very little taste. A touch of bitterness and hops. Pretty much goes down like nothing. It’s all in the aftertaste. The aftertaste really reminds me of regular Keith’s IPA. It’s like drinking a slightly beer tasting glass of water then getting the aftertaste like you just downed some Keith’s IPA. Odd. I would probably enjoy it more if I enjoyed Keith’s IPA more. For a light beer it’s very drinkable and better then most.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Draft in a sampler at the Red Stag Tavern. Pours a pale yellow color with a small white head that leaves some lace in the glass. Faint aroma. Very dry. Corn, pale malts, paper, and a hint of citrus. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation. Boring.

HeistAlmighty (1133) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
Draft at Saint John Ale House. Some sweetness and maltiness from the ale come through, but not really a blonde ale much like Keith’s IPA isn’t really an IPA either. Still, being kind of a blonde ale made it better than the majority of light macro lagers. If you have to drink a light beer in Atlantic Canada you could do much worse.

guil0000 (268) - New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 1, 2011
light yellow color with average head. light wheat nose with not much else going on. Taste is way watery and it tastes exactly like other light macros. Exactly what I expected

sseb69 (1510) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 15, 2011
Bouteille 341 ml. 4%. Couleur jaune pâle, mousse blanche. Arôme discrets. En bouche, une light macro typique, pas trop de gout, pas d’amertume.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2010
Draught. Pours light yellow with average white head. Weak aromas of grassy hops and malts. Taste is similar and weak/watery. It’s about what you would expect from a light beer. On par with other macro light beers.

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 5, 2010
Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color lager with a small bubbly head with no retention. Aroma of lightly sweet malt with typical adjunct notes. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet adjunct and not much else. Body is extremely light with not much else noticeable. Bad boring and bland like most other light beer.

arone12 (919) - Maryland, USA - JUL 8, 2010
Pours a very pale wellow color with a small white head that disappears quickly. Smells skunky with a tiny bit of spice in the aroma. Tastes light and crisp wwith the skunkyness present in the aftertaste. Slightly spicy in the beginning.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 3, 2010
Sample at the Beer Store. Light golden colour little head. Aroma faint to non-existent. Flavour is very light and watery. A watered down version of their "IPA" which the rep agreed to.

Metalchopz (2318) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2010
New in Ontario at The Beer Store in a 12-pack. Pours a pale golden colour which is richer than most light beers, with a big bubbly cap that disappears quickly, but leaves a 2mm coat on the brew. No lacing is found though and carbonation is average. Light malt nose with hints of corn which gives it a sweet aroma. Same for the taste, a decent balance between the grain and the sweetness, but always light. Overall, a better than average macro light ale, that is better to drink from the bottle on a hot summer day.
