Not a great offering here. It begins with a flat straw pour. The nose is somewhat macro and skunk equally. The flavor is peppery skunk and huge corn notes. The finish is purely macro corn(ish), with a poor hop contingency to boot. The mouthfeel is watery and overcarbonated.... again, not a top-shelf brew.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
341ml Bottle: Huzzah, another pale lager for me to rate poorly. I know I shouldnít judge beforehand but what choice do I have? The pour is boring with light carbonation, pale yellow body, and a head that left quickly; I should have taken its advice. Aroma is AWFUL, like compost and sweet corn. Flavour isnít much better with that distinct corn-water flavour Iíve come to expect from macro pale lagers. Poor, wouldnít try it again.

caesar (6644) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2006
Bottled, Leen restaurant, Utrecht. Clear yellow color, short head. Typical rice and corn aroma of a bad pale lager. Bit brackish and sharp metallic taste.

Not much here. This went well with the spicy noodle soup I was eating at the time, but at that point, anything wet and cold would have worked. Without the label, I would just assume this was another BMC macro product. This had the same lack of aroma, taste and finish.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2006
500ml can, 5% a/v Pours a nice straw colour with a decent white head. The smell is of citrys and malt. The taste consisting of a crisp albeit very watery. Not bad... nothing special though. Id call it a situation beer, IE match it to the situation at hand, such as eating sushi (not to be racist). This isnt an everyday beer

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Pale yellow with a little carbonation, slightly bitter aroma, taste was very bland with a slightly bitter vegetable finish, not much to this but I guess it worked with the sushi as a palate cleanser.

22 oz bottle (brewed by Molson in Canada). Pale yellow with a good head. The aroma is light and malty. The body is thin, with a drinkable palate and finish.

From a twist cap 633 ml. brown bottle with a coded freshness on the shoulder of bottle, a short blurb on the front label. Poured a clear pale yellowish golden with a foamy white head that settled into a fine lacing. Aromas of grain husks, metallic as well, sweet rice malts with a subtle, light old grass hoppiness. Moderate carbonation overall, soft, soft, softly crisp and smooth light bodied mouthfeel. Bland tasting, sweet, almost tasteless, rice malts with a grain metallic malt twang, subtle hayish hops that have a soft bitterness, and a dry rice malt finish, pretty clean in itís finish, o.k. drinkability, not a lager I would drink on a regular basis. I am in St. Louis on business and I just didnít have the energy to go to restaurant for dinner tonight, so I went to the deli at Whole Foods for a light meal that I could take back to my hotel room, had this lager with a slightly off beat meal of sesame seed tofu, black thai rice and three pea stir fly, this beer didnít get in the way of any of the food tastes. And yes, I paid too much for the deli items at Whole Foods.
