Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2012
Single can purchased from a mom&pop store in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on 06/01/2012. Colour: medium yellow, minimal white head. Nose: Strongly acidic malt and yeast...almost some urine. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. A wine-like taste among the malt and yeast. Some late grains but really quite unenjoyable.

reebtogi (4144) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
355ml can pours straw in color with a fast dissipating white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is cereal grains and mild hops. Taste is low quality hop bitterness with little malty sweetness. Just not that good of a beer. Enough said.

Can 355 ml
Aroma: gentle honey, golden malts , light floral hops. Clean.
Appearance: nice clarity, golden with medium lighter top. No lace.
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: Lighter in body . Mid almost watery. Clean yet very thin malt base , slight bitter sides. Mostly faultless brewing wise yet so empty....

GT2 (8353) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 8, 2011
341mL. Pours a clear yellow with no head formation. Nose is pretty absent. Taste is bland and watery, characterless, with cardboard and carbon paper. Pretty much void in all departments. Not recommended.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle. Pours amber-golden with an average white head. Aromas of barley, hops and malts. Taste is crisp, a combination of roasted barley and sweet malts, a subtle hop finish blends the sweet/bitter together to make a solid lager.

Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2009
Pours golden yellow, Foamy white head.Sweet malty aroma, Very crisp fresh flavour. Slight hoppy note. Not bad as pale lagergoes.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 20, 2009
It smells nice enough, especially for a lager. Basic malt. Clear and yellow, same old. It tastes surprisingly crisp, a strong malt flavour and smooth enough finish. This is pretty good compared to the competitors, too bad I had to bring it back from Saskatchewan.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2009 A Mes rate: can forced upon me by Tom at The Rake.
Mid gold with a thin white head. Lots of tropical fruit in the aroma makes it pretty tolerable if it wasn’t for the corn and cereal. The flavour is similar but corn comes right to the front and the tropical fruit falls away to be replaced with diacetyl. I think you get the idea...

VertBaconStrips (2069) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2009
Dumped into stolen glass. Just a bit lighter than the standard gold Canadain lager, this stuff still has lots of bubbs appearing but only leaves a skim around the edges. Crown was rocky, white, on the small size and didn’t last. You can see some stuff floating around the glass...that always annoys me. Smell is a little weak, but not bad. Sweet aromas dominate but grain and apples are there to be found. Taste is pleasant but remains more on the sweet side than a grainy side, slight lemon and a bit of hops too. Mouthfeel is what you would expect - a bit rough on the swish, tons of carbonation, fading grain tastes, malts and light bitterness share the aftertaste. Quite gassy if consumed at the rate this should be downed at - fast and in large quantities while doing something meaningless like slo-pitch or de-nutting cattle. Pretty much standard. Nice boring blue labels on the bottle make this a favorite for farmer’s kids to launch out of the windows of their dads tricked out 45 year old hog hauling rusted Fords. Bottles tend to migrate in the summer to ditches on Saskatchewan highways near community halls.
