2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
255ml can. Straw coloured, clear. Big with head with a rocky top. A few random lace spots. Nose is quite grainy. Taste is grainy, a bit metallic. A hint of grass-like hop with a faint tinny bitterness and a bit of residual sweetness in the finish. Light body, carbonation is not as rough as I was expecting, has a pretty smooth mouthfeel. Swillable swill.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
