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.

Average no great thing, aroma is poor, clear golden color, aftertaste bitter.

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.

Lubiere (9888) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 2, 2007
A yellowish lager with a thick white head. A lightly sulfury corn adjunct aroma. In mouth, well, a reasonable quenching lager, with a light biscuitty malt. Innoffensive. Can from Moncton, from Probstk.

HazelRah (276) - Summerland, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 28, 2007
Fills the mouth with an almost oily assertiveness, and thatís saying something for a lager at a hockey game! I didnít detect any odd or nasty flavours, no metals, alloys, or fusel oddites to be found.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2007
Can. Another middle-of-the-road pale lager. I donít hate these, but Iím beginning to hate rating them. Itís hard to come up with different things to say about the same monochromatic style of beer.

faint malty aroma with some saltiness. Standard macro swillness. Cornish, flat finish.

beerbill (3378) - Laurel, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Picked up a six pack of cans during a day trip to New Brunswick while vacationing in Maine. Pours yellow gold with a fizzy white head that was chased away fairly quickly. Very light aroma of malt and grain. Flavor is light also with trace amounts of malt and hops. Not an objectionable brew, just not very flavorful.
