czar (6511) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2016
pours clear very pale golden with a small bubbly white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. pale lager fruitiness with light (unfortunate) rotten fruit notes; touch of caramel - the same stenchy one found in macro lagers, strange earthy and peppery notes, metal, other minerals. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; assertive/unbalanced grassy-spicy-earthy finish. gone bad perhaps? weak pale lager.

I am not sure what to make of all the negative comments. Nothing hits you with a hammer flavour-wise, but still surprisingly complex and beautifully balanced.

473 ml can. Pours a veiled whitish straw with a nice white head. Aroma is fruit, grapefruit, orange. Flavor is light malt, slightly tropical. Finish is nice herbal and grapefruit flavored hops. Rather light, but still flavorful. Lingering fruit. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Aroma has so nice cereals in it, barely any hops though. Mouth feel is watery, and carb is very low. The finish still has some of the nice cereals but it turn sweet, and finished with a strong Apple flavour. It’s not bad, but not great, the finish gets messy.

Aroma is along the lines of stale beer with a hint of sour. Appearance is a light yellow with zero head. I must admit I tend to stick to hoppier beers, but decided to try this from LCBO. Big mistake, hardly drinkable but I did finish it. Cearal/grainy taste mixed with honey. 4/20 is being generous. Avoid.

Looks like sick wee. My grandpa’s flatulence must’ve inspired the smell: Alpo and 3 week old onions. Sucralose sweetness with aspartame wince worthy finish. Mouth is now on workman’s comp claiming PTSD. Bad otter, very bad.

Bendrixian (1391) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Piss yellow pour with lots of carbonation but no head retention.cereal and grainy aroma with honey and sweet melon. Light body, sweet finish and hay on the palate. What a shitty lcbo purchase. This belongs in the beer store where the lager drinkers go.

Why do I waste my time on this kind of crap? As soon as I see the word "lager" I should probably expect mediocrity to be the high bar I wish this stuff were mediocre. Cereal/grain, honey, light vegetal nose. Flavour follows. Lightly dry and bitter finish. Not only is this stuff boring but it's not even very well-executed for what it is. Weak sauce. I should've known better ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Frothmeister (674) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2015
473ml can. Pours a cloudy pale yellow with a thin white head. Light resinous notes, light caramel, and the faint smell of Belgian yeast on the nose. Taste wise, light caramel, again a really faint hint of Belgian yeast, a light sort of cherry candy note, and some minerality that leads into watery light metallic bitterness, with light resinous notes, and more of the faint caramel. For a lager, this is a winner. In all honesty, it kind of reminds me of Labatt 50 with more caramel notes. While that might not sound like a compliment, it is. This is a top notch lager.

Pale, almost clear in colour with a small head that dissipates quickly. Smells sweet with a hint of spiciness. Tastes much the same. Light but drinkable.
