3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 mL Bottle. Light gold body with a small, dissipating foam head. Aroma of cereals and corn, an innuendo of grass, faint floral notes, an apple-like sharpness, some light sweet malts step up when tasted; a mild astringent aftertaste and the hops come through in the finish albeit shy. Refreshing in its own way and remarkably smooth and pleasant in the mouth. A light bodied ale that "does better" than any macro swill in its category. An "old times" beer that can be revisited for the nostalgic factor.

Pours a clear and very pale yellow with a small white head. Mild aroma is grassy, grainy, a touch hoppy. Mild taste is similar to aroma with a bit of malt. Thin bodied.

341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that settles quickly leaving little lacing behind. Aroma is light grains and faint hops. Taste is light malty sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Light body and moderate carbonation. Tastes more like a standard macro lager than an ale.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
341ml bottle. Very little aroma, some light malt. At least it is not bad smelling. Pours light gold with thin, tight head and lots of bubbles on the sides. They do not last. Taste is not bad for cheap beer, light malt and toast. Palate is not too thin, but went flat pretty quick. Overall, one of the better Ontario buck-a-beers, but that isn’t a real fierce field.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a clear, pale golden yellow with thin white head. Aroma of grainy malt and a little fruitiness. Flavour is grains, light apple and a touch of grassiness. Lightish bitterness in finish. Body is on the light side. Ok at best.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally rated June 2006. Ah yeah... the stubby bottle ! Pours a golden-yellow colour with a medium white head that dissipates quite quickly, leaving minimal lace. Heavy carbonation of average-size bubbles. The nose is dominant of sweet malt and slowly going toward a grainy malt. Smooth with slight fizz mouthfeel. Starts off with some mild sweet malt, then goes through this hoppy light bitterness to then end with a grainy finish. Hints of apples and pears. Definitely more punch then a lager, and quite a decent smooth ale I enjoy every time at the Dominion Bar in Ottawa.

Same bottle as pictured. Poured light golden yellow with small head. Very light. Not much to it at all. No hops in the flavour or aroma. Kind of taste the alcohol in it. Overall decent offering.

For the price this one is good. It pours golden. it has a taste of sweet cherrys. it doesnt have much hop flavour to speak of. but the malts make for a flavourful beer. I would have this one again
