2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. I’ve had this one before. It does not warrant a detailed description. It was skunky when I tried it before, and it’s still skunky. Tolerable for cooling off on a hot day, but no more.

341 ml bottle in a mixed case from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear golden with a small white head.
Aroma: Sickly sweet grain/cereal, a bit of raw barley malt, a hint of vague fruitiness, otherwise clean and boring.
Palate: Medium body, moderately soft effervescence, fairly smooth.
Flav.: Grains/cereals, a little barley malt, kinda fruity – mainly apple juice, not much else; dry with minimal bitterness and an apple juice finish.
Dead Frogs are boring frogs.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 ml (clear) bottle from The Beer Store (part of Winter Mixer). Pours a bright, light yellowish gold with small white head. Aroma is grainy and lemony. Flavour is similar with a slight skunkiness to it. A little thin; fizzy carbonation. A cut above most macro pale lagers but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright light gold brew sitting in the clear bottle noisy short lived cap produced during pour, looks ok for the style. Lemony lager aroma with hints of skunk and corn. Malts come across as sweet and grainy, mild mild skunk on the tongue. Flavour is more of a lime then lemon, no bitter at all. Crisp and relatively clean. What ever if you try to compare this to most other "Beer Geek Beers" its horrible and it will fail, but if you judge based on what it is a pale lager this very good and well above average. GOOD JOB DEAD FROG!!!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
A crisp and full lager. A slightly heavier body than most lagers. Light lacing that didn’t last too long. Almost buttery flavor. Not a lot more too it than that.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Clear gold, average white head. Sweet biscuity aroma, lightly toasty. Sweet corny lager flavours, a little buttery, a little caramel. Too sweet for me to enjoy more than one.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Sampled at Viti, pours pale yellow. Generic lager, slightly smoother and more robust than the average run-of-the-mill macro piss.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
My Bottom Line:
Plump honeyed cereals dive into a void of a finish in this clean and corny lager for the masses.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the clear blond.
-Some wooden hops are felt in the background, but they are distant.
-The packaging and flavor profile are obvious knock-offs of Sleeman’s products, which is not really attractive...
-I know good lagers are few and far between in Canada, but that doesn’t mean I’d settle for this if I badly wanted a drinkable lager.
Bottle; uh...thx guys!
