Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2012
Single can purchased from mom & pop store in Kindersley, Saskatchewan on 06/02/2012. Colour: Light yellow with low white head lacing. Nose: Sprite, trace barley, yeast is around but not dominant....quite light. Taste: Light sweet, light bitter, light sour. Typical light beer, but without the pungentness and dominant sweetness of some. Barley is quite noticable and welcome.

341mL. For some reason, this is quite an improvement over GW Pils and Lager simply because it does have some sort of flavor and that would be quite an unexpected jolt of DMS/cooked sweet corn. Pour is light yellow with almost no carbonation. No head formation. Still, yellow water. A rare 1/5 for appearance. Nose is big DMS. Taste combines DMS with cardboard, and tannic astringency. Oatmeal is somehow present in the body. Really one of the oddest beers I’ve had. Certainly not good, but interesting and not really offensive.

sseb69 (1481) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
Cannette 341 ml. 4%. Couleur jaune pâle paille. Assez légère mais goûte le malt et est rafraîchissante. Bonne light.

VertBaconStrips (2063) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
One of the best light beers I’ve drank. It’s got aroma, flavour and feels good. 3.5 for a light beer? Well, yea, when compared to other lights. Dumped out of can on to carpet...carpet soaked up beer very well. Kidding. Standard Canadian lager aroma and colour/ cap. Tasty beer considering - not to sweet, a good ammount of barley, grass and the faintest hint of hops. Fairly smooth with a decent carb attack, light bodied and some dry wheatish finish. This doesn’t seem like a light beer. Western puts out good brew that I’m finding myself drinking more and more.

leaparsons (7996) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2008
Can. Beers of the World Live, NEC. Light gold with a small head. Aromas are grain with floral, soapy notes and some citrus. Flavours are light grain with prickly notes. Soft on the finish. Dull.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2006
I’m not usually in the habit of drinking light beers, but this was in the fridge and I’d never tried it before... Pale gold, decent head that vanishes under the attack of lots of carbonation. Not a lot of aroma to speak of. Surprisingly flavourful for a light beer-- pale malt with some soft apple notes. Very watery palate, but it seems that you can’t escape that with light beers. In the end, when compared to its light beer peers, this was very good, but compared to standard pale lagers, it comes across as weak (hardly surprising).

piscator34 (1949) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 20, 2005
Pale gold in colour with lots of carbonation. Not a lot of aromatics with this one... perhaps a wiff of malt and chemicals. Although the palate is as watery as you’d expect from a light beer, the flavors (again with the light malt) are not too muted at all. You could do a lot worse.

Beerguys (50) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Poured with a small foamy head that lasted till finish. Pale golden in color. Lots of carbonation. Smooth taste going down with little after taste. Great for a hot day sitting on the patio

Fiend (104) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Pale golden color...foamy head...highly carbonated. This beer is probably GW’s best beer. Its light, smooth flavor was hardly barely noticable and it had no aftertaste. For a light beer I think it fairs well. A good lawn mower beer.

It is a nice beer to go with desserts. Ice cream is best. It is a good beer if you have a bbq or a pit party.
