1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I tried this beer on December 20, 2009 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a clear gold colour with a very thin bubbly/rocky head, and mild effervescence. The aroma is grainy malt with some metallic notes. The mouthfeel is weak to medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is grainy malt, sand, and wet metal. A below average beer.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours golden in colour, large white, frothy head, which lingers. Aroma is corny. Taste is decent, sweet, very little hops. Proabably a lot better on a patio, in the summer!

Nice can! How many times do you say that? Aroma is grain and wet newspaper. Pours a bubbly pale yellow. Taste is somewhat skunky. Although there are flavours of cereal and barley. Passable lager.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Impressive cream like head. Rusty oxidized metal orange pour. Nice thick sticky lacing. Full nutty taste. Some hazelnuts. Fairly aftertaste free. Over-carbonated but rather good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is fresh and sweet lager. Clear bright yellow with thick white foamy head that laces glass as it thins. Refreshing, fresh buttery watery lager. Easy drinking for an all day summer beer fest. It’s a lager, it is what it is.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can ( 500ml ). Kinda gay-lookin’ can. Why is this swill "Premium?" Pale gold, large lasting fluffy sticky white head. Boring aroma - dry straw, honey, hint of plastic. Taste is watery and stale - paper, plastic and dead weeds - wishy-washy mouthfeel, dry, flat, harsh - ...................... tick.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear yellow gold with decent-sized white head; some lacing. Aroma of straw and corn. Grain and corn primarily for the flavour with some light hops in the finish. Mediocre.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can: Poured a golden color lager with a medium bubbly head with actually good retention and some lacing. Aroma of adjunct and light cereal is pretty average. Taste is a mix between some adjunct and limited hops presence with a somewhat nice cereal presence. Body is about average with good carbonation. Below par overall and I have to wonder why somebody at the LCBO thought it would be a good idea to import this.

500ml can from the LCBO
Pours a slightly hazy golden yell with big white head and a huge amount of lacing
The aroma is standard lager fair hay corn small amout of hops
The taste is again standard cheap lager this does not deserve th moniker Premium Lager at all

500ml can from the LCBO. pours light golden with a lingering white head. steady carbonation but not over carbonated. aroma of lager malt, some dustiness. the flavour is slighly worse. some pale malt but also some adjunts. not real hopping except to slightly hold the sweetness in check. overall its a finishable pale lager.
