COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This lighter tasting Canadian style lager has become our most popular brand since its introduction in 1986, brewed with all natural ingredients as our Premium Lager but with less hop intensity. Monde Selection Gold winner.

Teutonosaur (6) - Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2013 does not count
I had this from a bottle in Toronto. Pale yellow, a light sickly sweetness, grassy aroma, minimal hops. It had a distinctly "artificial-movie-theater-butter" type aftertaste- enough that I may have imagined its oily texture. It took me years to trust another pale lager. To be fair, pale lagers may be my least favorite type of beer, but to date this was among my least favorites within the category.

zimbo (558) - SCOTLAND - NOV 30, 2012
Wafer light and sort of fresh to the nose and mouth, this is a beer in serious need of stuffing and hops. Actually get no hops at all anywhere let alone ’less’ hop intensity. Pretty poor.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2012
341 ml bottle. pours pale yellow with a slightly below average thin white head. Aroma of malt, and some grains and minimal hops. some floral notes and grassyness. light-medium body with oily mouthfeel. It’s like a discount version of MGD.

reebtogi (4183) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild grains and hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with a moderate hop bitterness. Thin body and modest carbonation. Typical macro lager.

Metalchopz (2282) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 15, 2012
Originally rated July 2005. This beer use to come in brown stubby bottles, now I got this 12 which is in clear 341ml bottles. Pours a pale yellow colour with minimal carbonation. Not much head, nor lacing. Smells nice malt with some bitterness. The taste is grain malt, maybe mixed in with corn... but quite refreshing. Mouthfeel is half watery and half creamy. Good summer brew but prefer their bitter, Brick Conner’s Best Bitter.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
Brighter yellow than normal and a semi-solid head. Aroma of wood and particle board glue mixed with two day-old socks. Flavour is a vague mix of hops and adjuncts creating a smooth glass-like film on the tongue akin to a high-alcohol malt liquor. If you have friends you don’t like, this would make a perfect beer to offer them when they come over.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 15, 2011
473ml can. Labeled as "Red Baron Premium Blonde Lager" with 4.8% ABV, so here’s hoping its the right one. Colour was bright yellow/used beer. Voluminous foamy white head. Smell is sweet and skunky. Taste is much the same with a bit of sour and hops at the end. Palate was dry and a little thin. Overall, not a winner.

Lagerboy (1229) - British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 Very pale, no head. Faint fruity corny aroma. Sweet grainy macro industrial swill taste. No hops, average carbonation. Sweet cloying finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

zeek (167) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Bottle of "Red Baron Premium Blonde Lager Gold Medal Winner", but apparently just new packaging from the company website. Beer is very clear and transparent. No head despite bottle a few degrees warmer than usual serving temperature. Taste is hard to describe, starts complex but hard to pick out any flavours, and finishes with a mild bitter hoppy taste. Probably best served cold on a hot day.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2011
A blonde lager wuth a thin white head. A mineral malt aroma with light chalky notes. In mouth, a rather light malt with oily mouthfeel, faint to inexistent hops, boring. 500 ml can from LCBO, used for cooking.
