Bottle from the LCBO Pours a pale yellow go figure with a small white head the aroma is quite nice for a light p[ale lager sweet grass cough drop, the taste is better than a bud or coors light thats for sure slightly sweet herbs and malt The best light beer i have had But still a light pale lager

Frothmeister (585) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2009
341ml bottle. White head that diminished quickly. A pale golden colour. Clear. Aromas of candied peach, apple pie. Tastes of corn, and straw. Odd faint finish of spinach. Yes, spinach. White grape juice too. Clean and crisp though. Medium bitterness. Not really my style, but alright for a light beer.

Gorbalev (2950) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2009
On tap, KW fest. Light yellow, small white head. Light grainy aroma, faint hops. Mouthfeel is very very light, not much flavour at all. Some grain and faint hops. Clean and well made but really no flavour at all here to recommend. To compare, I would prefer the Anti-Gravity Light.

Sammy (8910) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle at The Rebel House. A light lunchtime session beer, with palish yellow colour and a little white head, that leaves some lace trail. A tad beerish aroma, and some malt. There is hop in the taste, but also corn. Mildly astringent. Lighter than average mouthfeel. Drinkable on a hot summer day, but even though could not finish it.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2009
On tap at Golden Kiwi as Kiwi Lager. Pours bright golden yellow, with small, fine white head. Nice, mild hop aroma, and very drinkable, balalnced flavour. A decent lager.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2009
On tap at the Golden Kiwi as the ’Kiwi Lager’. Apparently this is what it is. Taps your standard pale gold with a tiny white surface film. The aroma is really just faint sweet grains and wort. Not bad. But the flavour is where this one really shines. Absolutely delicious bready/grainy wortyness that generally is the aspect of lagers that makes me drool, very tasty. Some nice lemony hop zing added balance in the finish. Easy going mouth-feel though it was served perhaps just a few degrees too low. Carbonation is moderate enough that it didn’t annoy me like it usually does with ’light’ beers. Tasted like a perfectly fresh brewed bready worty lager which is something I take much pleasure in.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2013 on tap at the golden kiwi. re-branded as golden kiwi lager. pale yelllow pour with minimal head. almost no aroma but for some grainy pale malts. grainly pale lage malt driven taste. not terrible but far from inspired. ////////////////// light yellow with a white head. Pretty well hopped but fairly fruity yeast mlt combo. This really drinks like a light golden ale. Pretty good but not enough genuine lager character.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2008
341 ml bottle-Pours a light gold sparkling body with a finger of white fizz. Active carbonation. Grainy nose with steamed veggies and a fruity 7-up like aroma. Sweet pale malt flavours are backed with grain, sweet fruity, almost apple juice like flavours. Light, watery finish. I really wouldn’t want to drink too much of this one.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Had under the F & M Barrelhead Draught alias....Light golden body pillowy head. Grainy aroma. Light malt. Someone tried to say that this was really loaded with hops. HAHAHA nice try. Weak hop bitter with grain in the flavour... mild malt. Watery finish.
