2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden lager with a thick receeding white head. Light and grassy adjunct and malt aroma. In mouth, a lightly chalked malt with light grassy hops. Light bodied but refreshing on a scorcher like today. Bottle from LCBO, BB Dec. 2009.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355 mL Bottle. Yellow body with a thin white head settling to a film and ring around the glass, completely vanishing after several minutes. Aroma mostly sweet corn and grass with a very slight note of vegetables as would be experienced at a farmer’s market and a bit of breadiness to it. Corn and corn husk dominate in the flavor along with some light malt. Corn husk dominates in the aftertaste. The finish reminds me of a fresh vegetable salad, interesting in its own way. I can see drinking this on a Caribbean vacation but otherwise, my hard-earned beer money can stay in the bank.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle BB4 Feb 2010. Gold with a thin head and micro-bubbles. Sweet corn and grass aroma. I’m also picking up cookies and bread but in a funky kind of scent. I could see drinking this daily in the Caribean but it would never replace my IPAs or malty beers at home. Bready malt with some light peppery hops. A bit of an earthy quality to the flavour.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Oh, I can’t wait for this. I’m relaxing with some Roger Clyne DVDs and it seemed the right time to suck on another in the never-ending series of crappy pale lagers. Pours pale, straw yellow with lifeless white bubbles atop, failing in a life effort to become head. Sad. Aroma is very grainy, corn, sweet. Flavour is grainy, corn, sweet. I imagine in Barbados this is great because you’re in the f’n Barbados, but I’m on my couch. So fail.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank from the lovely plastic bottle this stuff comes in! Aroma was of bitter hops, and it really was the archtypical 4.7% lager. Mouthfeel, taste, and finish are acceptable.
