Tastes mainly of malts. Creamy and bubbly/fizzy on the palate. Overall nothing special or exciting.

Really good for what it is. One of the best session beers I’ve come across in a while.

Just plain bad. Mass produced beer taste with a fancy name and fancy label. No better than MC. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours slightly amber with no head retention. Smells light and malty. I can smell their boring yeast strain coming through as well. Tastes terrible. Just as bad as kokanee. How a micro brewery makes such a convincing macro brew I will never understand.

I have to give it up for this beer. They are not trying to be more than they really are. This beer has a nice refreshing, albeit simple, aroma that reminds me of the smell of "beer" before I crashed into the world of beer geekery. The taste is simple but it delivers on the crisp, clean, and refreshing promises made by the can. There is nothing beyond a lager going on here but it isn’t too sweet or sticky. At $6.50 for a six pack this beer is officially my go to "cheap" beer and I would easily choose it over BMC, Canadian, etc. It won’t blow your mind - but I’d recommend trying it. Fun can too.

reebtogi (3828) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
355ml can porus a pale golden color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is moderate malty sweet and light hop bitterness. Just an average lager and nothing special.

Lagerboy (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
Light honey lager yellow, thin white head. Sweet grainy aroma. Honey sweet malt taste. Silky, oily, low hopped, average carbs. Clean sweet finish. Tastes better when drank ice cold from the can. A step up from most mass produced industrial swill. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
