Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

Belly Full O Beer (57) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 2, 2004
Golden yellow colour with a healthy amount of head. Slightly arcid smell and aftertaste. Not a bad beer, but not one that I’d buy again. Reminded me a lot of Carlsberg Black.

Bottle. First one of these I tried was dead (flat, smelly). The replacement was a little (but not a lot) better (same place, so the whole episode might be doubtful). Darkish, unattractive colour with no head retention. Malty nose was interesting, but not to my liking. Had plenty of body, but an odd finish that alienated me to the beer. This (second) beer was was not faulty, just not very good.

Bushman’s Premium Lager: Mild floral, spicy hops over mineralic water in the somewhat plain aroma. Clear golden body is topped by a low but lasting white head that laces well. Citrus-lemon and lightly spicy hops over somewhat stale and grainy malt flavour with moderate bitterness. Some cardboard-like artifacts are notable in the aftertaste. Light body with present but uninspiring carbonation. Tulip glass. Fridge temperature. Green bottle (BCLS at 8th/Cambie, Oct-06).

The aroma is light with only malt and resin hops. The appearance is pale-orange gold with a small filmy head. The flavor starts off slightly bitter and then proceeds to a sweet malt but finishes rather dry. The palate is thin but tolerable due to the carbonation. As pale lagers go, this one’s not bad and complimented my Indian cuisine very well.

A cheap imitation of a premium lager it wasn't too bad but just a bit too sweet for me.
