1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can courtesy of jerc. Yellow, medium white head. Sweet skunk aroma, harsh, almost smells strong. Light soft mouthfeel. Tastes better than the aroma. Light malt and honey followed by harshness at the end and light hops. Mainstream, but a few positive notes of flavour I guess. I hear this used to be a lot different.

Drank straight from bottle. Nose, corn and sweet malt. Taste of sweet malt, no hop character. Not as much skunk and adjunct flavor as most pale lagers.

12oz can. Iíd rather take a punch to the face than drink this again. Another rebranding effort gone awry. Itís only 5% but tastes more like a malt liquor, not in a good way. Nasty, avoid.

341ml bottle pours a golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles quite quickly leaving a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is cheap grains and faint hops with a little bit of skunkiness. Taste is light malt sweetness with a bit of grassy hops and skunk. Terrible beer.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This lager poured a crystal clear, light yellow colour with a really fast dissipating, bright white head. to the nose there are scents of corn, a little skunk, sour ??? First taste was like water. "East coast, White Bread muck" to be exact. Light malt flavour followed by a nice metallic taste.... do I really need to say more.

Had years ago in St. Johnís (Newfoundland) when I ponied up to the bar and asked for "something local". Lo and behold, a forgettable malty experiment that is hard to differentiate from anything else that Molsonís has made.... though this one was a bit darker, more of an amber-style beer than a pale lager thing. It did the trick, and for awhile I mistook it for a microbrew, but in fact itís hard to give much respect to.

From about 30 years ago, I tasted this brew (a college pal of me used to wear the bottle caps as medals as a joke) - Yeah, it tasted pretty much like any macro-brew, but it wasnít bad.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
A very bland macro lager overall. I wish I could rate it higher for sentimental reasons but I simply canít do it. It lacked any personality and the taste was slightly bitter. It had a light body, thin texture and was too fizzy for me, and I like a good amount of carbonation typically. The finish was abrupt. Disappointing, unfortunately.
