Spab (3289) - 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.

Tres pale et douce, elle descend facilement. Elle manque beaucoup trop de gout.

coldbrewky (1673) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle with lunch at reversing falls. Clear golden lager. Not much of a head. Some grass in the light body....gentle bitter finish. Murgh.

VertBaconStrips (2300) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2009
Better than the average Canadian lager - no question there. The aroma is fresh but lacks appeal. Sweet malts, corn and a slight floral hoppiness and some acceptable skunk thats not quite skunky. Bright gold clear (with the presence of some tiny stuff mixed in) brew that poured out a large white rocky head that quickly dissipated to a ring and film that leaves ok spotty lacing. This is a light, weak flavoured beer that has mild dry malts and corn with a hint of bitterness that mixes in well. There is nothing that offends here - taste is just weak. The flavour didn’t last and now it’s just bland. Watery impression. More sourness that fades now and more obvious bitterness. Thin mouthfeel, highly carbonated and sometimes leaves a harsh bitter aftertaste. A decent beer that just needs more flavour. Nothing that I would ever specifically get a craving for but does the trick when getting blasted with the freaks from the atlantic provinces.
