Plain bland beer. Nothing really to note. Its straw yellow colour with a white head and good lacing. Aroma is grain, almost fruity but very faint. Taste is malt, lemon citrus and a light hop. Really not interesting and I wont be going back.

FrankyBunz (8) - Scarberia a.k.a. Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2010 does not count
Pours a nice golden colour with a sizable white head, very smooth and refreshing with a slight sweetness. If you like blonde beers you should give it a try & see for yourself.

Poured from can. Light golden colour with small fizzy head that dissappeared quickly. Slight hoppy aroma. Decent mouthfeel and smooth. Its own description pretty much sums it up. Smooth crisp lager. Very clean taste with a little malt flavor and a little hops. It would be refreshing on a summer day, but not a lot of character. If you want a clean tasting lager then this is one Id recommend. If you want something with more character, then this is not it.

thorongil2 (2254) - , Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2010
(473 ml can) light amber colour; medium white head; aroma: hint of apricot, grain; taste - weak, watery, still clean and refreshing, just not much character and no depth

Six pack from LCBO. Blonde colour (duh), small white foamy head that died quickly. A bit skunky (the clear bottles?) I think so. Not much character and very little hops, but has a clean taste unlike a typical macro. The definition of "easy drinking" but without the nasty.

Spab (3335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2010
On tap at WEGZ Stadium Bar. Pours a clear yellow with small white head. Sweet grains in the nose with some bitter grassiness also coming through in the flavour. Somewhat watery. Bland but mostly inoffensive.

473ml can lcbo, hazy yellow color. I get medium bitter hoppiness to it, get some fruity tones and creamy corn. Nothing much.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2009
500 ml bottle sampled 6/14/08. Hazy golden yellow colour with a mostly lasting creamy white head. Grainy, lime, toasty, and lightly spicy aroma. Grainy flavours with a lime and tangerine pithy and perfumed bitter finish. Light bodied, smooth but lightly oily mouthfeel. Decent, though at times unpleasant.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2009
473 mL Can. Yellow body with a small short-lived fizzy-bubbly white head that leaves small spotty lacing. Pungent earthy-hoppy aroma with notes of honey and floral; there is a harshness to it. Sweet light malt with an innuendo of corn husk dominates in the flavor, peppery-hoppy aftertaste speaks up without overpowering, there is a certain tartness about the finish; it has a combination of wet straw and corn husk as well as something sour. Amsterdamn Disappointment.

patricks110 (2409) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2009
Very disappointing beer. Pour of bright golden ale with a thin off white head. Aroma of sweet corn, hops and fruit. Taste is corn, crisp and sweet. Slightly bitter finish.
