1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale straw colour. Grainy, slightly malty aroma with light fusel alcohol. Light body. Vaguely malty. Finish a bit biscuity, but lightning quick.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear straw gold, sudsy white head that rapidly fades. Clean grainy aroma, same clean grainy palate, light, empty finish. Not bad, but not much to talk about either.

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...

Can at tasting at work. Alround rating: Very very similar to the pilsner in that there is almost no flavour at all, so it gets the generic average.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Another beer from Saskatchewan’s Duff Brewery. New can? New recipe? Obviously designed to celebrate Saskatchewan’s 100th birthday. Kudos since Big Rock only had a mixed pack and glasses for Alberta. Otherwise the same generic macro from Saskatchewan’s micro. Pale yellow. Have to work to get a head. (that’s what my mom said). Alcohol and adjunct aroma. Taste likes adjuncts and most cheap macos. Bonus point for the thought but loss of many points for another bad beer. What do you expect for $5.44/six pack including tax and deposit.
Earlier Rating: 3/25/2004 Total Score: 2.6
Thin aroma disappears with repeated attempts to capture it. Big bubbles on a quickly vanishing white head atop a thin gold drink. Starts on the tongue like a Kokanee clone but then a bitterness kicks in that is actually enjoyable. They brew like a mini-macro but the potential is there to become more. How hard would it be for a small guy to make one or two with feeling?
