Lava lounge tap. clear yellow with a big lager flavor and not much else. Decent, but nothing impressive.

VertBaconStrips (2200) - 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 didnít last and now itís 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.

[1869-20081204] 473mL can. Straw grain grass aroma. Clear, yellow brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Plain straw yeast flavour. Light body is watery. Poor.

Gethinbeer (2367) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2009
Extremely clear light golden to yellow appearance. Thin lace on top of the beer. Medium carbonation. Very weak aroma. Typical mass produced lager beer, sweet, honey with a thin texture. Extremely weak beer.

patricks110 (2128) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2008
A pretty average beer. Overall, the taste is unamazing, cheap and unflavourful. Aroma is corny, and plain. overly carbonated and light hoppy flavour

Horrific. I could only drink a few sips. Dry, crispy, watery and extremely fizzy. Drink verrrry cold or not at all.

The beer pours golden with notes of sweet malt and some light hops. The flavor is clean and crisp with nice notes of hops at the finish.

muzzlehatch (4420) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 24, 2007
12 ounce can (the way God intended beer to be stored) from New Brunswick Liquor Corporation on King Street, Saint John, New Brunswick (May 2007), served immediately out of the fridge in a Duvel glass, and why the Hell not? This has got an enormous, actually quite stable smooth, fine-bubbled white head which sits atop a crystal-clear pale but dirty gold body; the head actually laces as it disappears so it gets a decent mark there, dadgummit.....well it smells like pretty much nothing, maybe some soap and sweat? or maybe thatís just me sweltering in the unseasonable warmth.....I could make up a whole bunch of fancy words to describe the complete lack of character I find when tasting it, I could go on about how itís lacking in this malt or that hops, I could talk about force-carbonation and filtering.....but Iíll just say one word: saccharine.....finishes, oh do I have to use the word finish? canít this experience just go on and on and on? No I guess not....metallic and dull, sweet and fake. OK Iíve done my part, I guess.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2007 This lager is very refreshing. Great almost floral aftertaste that is very drinkable. Has a nice yellow color. The body is on the light side but has enough substance to give it a distinct charactor. One of my personal favorites.
