Can into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden straw colour with a small white head. Aroma is malt and a little corn. Taste is malt with just enough bitterness to balance the sweetness. It’s an ok lager.

Can shared at the End of History tasting. This was rough. Aroma is corn, Cheerios, and plastic. Pours light blond and thin with lots of carbonation and a foamy head. Taste is stale corn, bread crumbs, and petroleum. Really not good.

HippyHop (477) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Pretty unremarkable. This looks and smells like a generic lager. Tastes about the same but there’s a bit of surprising sweetness and I feel like this was made with really nice water. Other than that pretty meh

Pours a pale straw with a medium sized ring of head. Aroma is crisp grain, corn, and faint grassy hops. Flavour is crisp grain, mild grassy bitterness, and corn like qualities.

jake65 (2901) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Can, courtesy of SHIG – thanks! Dirty straw colored pour with a moderate haze and small white head which dissipates rather quickly. Smells rather sweet; lager malt, grass, corn syrup. The taste is… well… unexpected. A blend of sweet lager and grapes with a fizzy crispness resembles a chardonnay spritzer. It fades away into a sweet finish that sort lingers with the grape/chardonnay taste. Odd. Unfortunately I didn’t find this to be very refreshing, but for reasons I cannot explain that didn’t stop me from polishing off the can.

Can thanks to good friends moving to Alaska: Poured a clear golden with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sour grain. Taste is a nice grain and popcorn. Light wet finish.

Pours a clear light pale yellow with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of corn, pale malts and light hops. Taste is clean and crisp with corn, pale malts and a crisp bitterness on the finish. Very smooth easy drinking pale lager.
