rejtable (1138) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2011
Was expecting worse. Initial bite, almost a pilsner like quality. Light taste, easy drinker. When it warmed up a little, the corn juice aromas dominated. Not worst macro lager you’ll find around.

473ml can. Clear and crisp. Taste is corn, straw and some caramel, but overall it is better than that sounds. Goes down easy, like a macro brew should.

Metalchopz (2119) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2011
Originally rated August 2009. Not available in Ontario and Quebec (where it is easy for me to get beer - living between those two provinces), I had to try this one in New-Brunswick (where it is brewed). Nice to go on tour with the band, and to go to that province once again. Pours a pale yellow colour (like a light beer ??) with lots of carbonation, a big white foamy head that has decent retention and lots of lacing. The nose is pretty malty with a little sweetness. The malt seems lighter in the taste, with a little hop in the middle, mild apple in the finish and some corn in the aftertaste. Not much sweetness, maybe a touch in the start. Lots of lace left on the glass, way after drinking it. I remember not liking this beer many years back when I had it in N.B. but now, I do not mind it (for swill). Nothing really special, but goes down easy when playing music there in a bar.

DeanF (1628) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 26, 2010
Little head, boring yellow colour, not much flavour even for a lager. Rather unintrusive, quite close to water as these things go and hard to differentiate from the pack. Drinkable, but forgettable.

Spab (2124) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
473 ml can from Alcool NB Liquor. Pours a clear light gold with very tiny white cap. Simple grainy nose with definite adjunct presence. Taste is sweeter, still grainy with a little corn. Lightish body but not overly thin. Fairly lively carbonation. When the write-up on the can says that "independence is our greatest strength" I guess it follows that it’s not the quality of the product.

Audevourahn (1) - Moncton, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 25, 2010 does not count
Very nice beer. It is one of those basic standby beers here in the Maritimes. It has a very mild aroma, pours a very clear and light coloured lager. It tastes good, with mild bitterness and very light maltiness. Finishes with little aftertaste. An overall good beer. Its my staple beer when visiting the NB Liquor locations!

Can. Pours a pale golden body with a white head. Simple malt bill, grain, some light grass and apple notes. Dry light a hint of sweetness and a vegetative finish. Eh.
