2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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!

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.

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)

This was the original party beer of my youth and turned me off beer for many, many years. Smells of wet socks and vomit, lumberjack shirts, and stale nicotine smoke. Tastes like cardboard and wool. These days when out in the cabin I prefer turpentine.
