Aroma is rice and corn adjunct with some tin from can and light sulphur. Taste is bland sweet malts and hops, very generic. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains quite poorly.

Pours a slightly hazy straw colour with big white foam made up of large bubbles and some lace. Aroma is grainy, corn like and lightly grassy. Flavour is malty sweetness, grainy, unpleasant hop flavour, lively carbonation and maybe a bit of cardboard. Drink this cold and fast and if your on a budget...

Meh... Fairly easy to tell why this stuff is so Cheap. Smells of stale grain, tastes like the bleached white rice that costs $2.00 a pound. You get what you pay for though

light body, thin feel, lively, bread, grass, golden, clear, medium sweetness, Fairly standard and inoffensive beer. Served cold on a hot day itís agreeable enough but nothing special. It stands up well against the likes of Molson Canadian or any of the other big brewersí light beers, but itís not a style I particularly like. One of Big Rockís budget brews, marketed as Pine Creek.

Bow Valley. Reviewed straight from bright gold can, aesthetically pleasing. Poured some out to note clear, yellowy colour. Medium carbonation. Aroma is corn and grass. Taste is exactly the same, with a bubbly mouthfeel of plain, grainy beer. Certainly one of the better dollar beers, but nothing one should ever drink seriously.

355ml can pours a pale golden color with a finger of white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is cereal grains and grass. Taste is light malty sweetness with a horrid hop bitterness that lingers on the palate. A terrible brew that just sickens me whenever I taste it. It is one my father purchases on a regular basis.

Single can purchased from Paradise Liqour in Edmonton, AB on 07/22/2011. Colour: Pale yellow, no head. Nose: Smells like malt liqour, abundant gingerale, rotting egg. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Again gingerale but flat and stale. Quickly fades to bitter cardboard. Absolutely attrocious. Embarrased that Big Rock would make such crap - but now understand why they have the affiliate brewery name "Pike Creek" attached to the can...

Generosity abounds on x-mas day! Though this might not quite deserve it... Iím going to give a few points here. This is really more like beer flavoured water that still has enough % to get the job done but there really isnít much to go on, it is so damn thin. Itís not actually offensive though, and Iíll never forgive Banks Carribean lager for itself.

This beer is the favorite of pathetic old alchies wiith jobs in my town. Pours piss yellow.Aroma is horrible. stinks like the smell of whiskey coming out of your pours after a morning of hard drinking. The flavour is very light and very cheap. almost like a slightly yeasty tasting glass of water. not offensive, this beer is drinkable but itís just plain terrible.

Horrible beer. Absolutely no reason why I will ever consume this again. Pour is pale yellow and foamy white head. Tastes like someone peed in my mouth and mixed it with beer. Overall, pretty gross.
