Metalchopz (2626) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 14, 2011
Originally rated June 2006. Bought a cheap 24-pack of this stuff at The Beer Store. Pours a straw yellow colour with a big frothy white head that has pretty good retention and decent smudgy lace. Lively carbonation with over-average sized bubbles. The nose is a good mix of hop, sweet malt and mild corn. Medium stickiness for the mouthfeel. Grainy malt start with a big corn finish. Some nice fruit comes out in the aftertaste. Originally tasted from the bottle, the fruit seemed like rhubarb. One of the better "Value Brands" at The Beer Store, but still, hard to drink to many of these in a row.

Canette 473ml. De couleur dorée-jaune et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle sucrés, moyen de maïs sucré, léger de houblon herbeux (gazon) avec des traces de sucre blanc. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-fort et un peu croustillant ainsi qu’une texture aux notes aqueuses. Goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de maïs sucré et un léger goût de pain blanc puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux (gazon mouillé) avec de faibles traces métalliques. Post-goût court-moyen, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec des petites traces métalliques.

Spab (2845) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2010
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear yellow gold with medium-sized white head. Grainy aroma with light corn and grass. Taste of stale grains, corn and very light grass. Thin body. Quite bad but not terrible.

This may be one of the worst beers available, however on the plus side it does have neat little amusing anecdotes under the cap on each bottle. Gives me personally a bit of a headache on every occasion I’ve sampled it.

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color lager with a large bubbly pure white head with minimal retention and not much lacing. Aroma of light adjunct and residual sugar. Taste is bland though adjunct do not overtake too much from the taste. Body is quite light with good carbonation. Not bad for the style though not something I will seek out again – too bland for my taste.

Looks like a typical beer. Yellowish pour with some head up top. Heads a bit more clingy then normal. Sent is waxy and synthetic like warm plastic right off the assembly line. Taste is thankfully better. Grainy, hoppy. Overcarbonated. Still not bad for a non-micro. A step above the generic crap. Unfortunately only a step and not a flight. Unbalanced a bit, odd aftertaste. Still vs. most swill you find this has some nice hoppy flavour so def. worth a shot.

473ml can
5.5% ABV
I tried this beer on March 24, 2010 after purchasing from the singles bin at one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent medium gold colour with a bubbly white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma was grainy malt, grass, and some stale hoppy tones. The mouthfeel was weak to medium bodied, with medium carbonation. The flavour was stale malt, some graininess, and a slight bitter finish.

I’m not going to say it’s a great beer, for a buck a bottle I’m not sure that’s possible. But in all honesty I don’t find it offensive, it’s light and smooth and for the price, seems to be comparable to many similar beers that cost more. Until I find something drastically better, this will be my summer BBQ beer-of-choice.
