Can @ AirBNB Arts Colony. Clear golden straw pour with a soapy white head. The nose is kind of harsh for a relatively low ABV beer. Some green apple and a touch of lemon floor cleaner. Ooof. A lot of corn sugar and syrup. Flavor is kind of sugary and syrupy. White grape juice. A lot of cooked corn. Green apple peels and some solvent. Nope.

High Test. A beer of my youth, canít get it here in Alberta now. It was the beer of the 80ís, it was powerful then. Had a bad habit of sticking around the back of my throat like syrup.

Can (Old Notes)-Pours a medium golden with a small head. Aroma of corn and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light to medium bodied brew was not bad.

Lagerboy (1810) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2013
355 ml can from the singles section at the Heffley Creek Store. Clear bright yellow, fading foamy white head. Malty cereal grain aroma. Sweet-ish malty pale lager taste and not much else. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Inoffensive and easy to drink. Remember it being called High Test. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

355 ml can. Pours an clear golden with light head. Aroma of light malts and hops and a bit of rubber. Crisp light malts. A little sour. A little bitter finish. Key is light and little. An historic Canadian beer meant for quaffing.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 I grew up drinking this beer, when I joined the Armed Forces I drank this beer " back in the day we called it High Test", I could even play the song on a guitar, you may remember, "Okeefs extra old stock Great Big Taste!" now after being to Belgium a few times Iím all about quality craft beer, but if I was working in my garage or mowing the lawn on a hot summer day, I would never turn one of these bad boys down, they pour golden amber and have a rich malty nose & a crisp refreshing malty finish, this is my favorite Cheap Quaffing Beer!

341ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is grains and hops. Taste is undesirable hop bitterness with a hint of malts. Slightly above average for the style, nothing special.
