Hard to find anything unique about this one. Corn smell, too carbonated, skunked like so many other mediocre lagers. Produces nice belches, but otherwise interchangeable with 30 other brands available at the beer Store. But, neat bottle. One interesting thing: the name "Labatts" doesn’t appear anywhere on the packaging - either on the bottle or on the 6-pack cardboard. It would be better - in my opinion - for Molsons and Labatts to actually try to produce or distribute beers that didn’t taste like the swill they already pump out, rather than spend so much time and marketing energy trying to hide their presence from their beers. People who like good beer are not this easily fooled.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2006 If I had to summarize this beer in a couple of words I’d choose ; "bottled hype". This is another In-bev all hype international beer with the same dull pale fizzy corn/rice adjunct profile of the degenerated SA export beers: pale yellow, fizzy, no head, clear-crisp-dry-clean rice and corn dextrins in the nose, taste and body,... fast sweet finish with no substance in between except for an annoying sour rice flavor that is presumably supposed to be the adjunct lemon wedge in your tropical latin beach beer.....there I tried it, it sucks I can live out my life without it.

LordUppity (26) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
Bottle. Light gold in colour. Slightly skunked aroma. I was barely able to taste this while having it with food. Very watery with a high carbination factor. Will not be buying it again.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
Clear gold colour with thick white head. Stale yeast and mild mild nose. Skunky malt taste with mild malt finish.

Ughsmash (7248) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 22, 2006
Bottled at Sushi Samba, Miami Beach. Poured a brighter golden with a fizzy cap of white head. Nose was of mild sweet malts, corn, and hints of grassiness. The above find the flavor, too... along with a significant lighter fruit profile that came out of nowhere. Watery. I found nothing offensive from this one... also nothing to make me go back.

Pale gold, faint malt aroma. Sweet taste with little bitterness. Just another fizzy global lager. No better or worse than scores of others.

gnoff (8112) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 16, 2006
Bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget".
Light golden color, white bubbly head. Malty scent, smells of flour and oat meal. Thin watery malty taste, low bitterness. Still a bit refreshing. Not too malty. Sweet after taste.
Seems I like it a lot more than the average, but it’s different from the badly made Swedish and Danish beers that they usually sell cheap in Sweden.

Lubiere (10696) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
Golden lager with a creamy white head. Lightly skunked upon opening, with mineral chalky notes. In mouth, rather fresh malts, no hops, light and quaffable beer , for the Copacabana beaches!

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 15, 2006
355 ml bottle. Good carbonation, good foamy head that disapeared quickly. Skunky and fruity aroma. That beer is lighter than corona. Nice for the hot summer but not for me.

Est-ce qu’on est chanceux au Québec ou quoi? Quoi?! Labatt vont en vendre beaucoup, en été, après merci et bon soir!! Couleur typique d’un lager macro. Arome de citron, pas agrume mais citron. Goût maïs fade. C’est nul. Bonne chance à Labatt! HAHAHA!
