COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth real beer taste without aftertaste. It is fully fermented, lightly hopped and dry brewed, creating a lightly coloured beer with less body.

a sad commercial adjunct ale. Sickly sweet aroma pale yellow color, not much of a cap....sweet and funky like creamed corn with small hints of herbal hopping...fast finish, clean but totally uneventful and way too much carbonation...I was belching like a warf brigand on 2 sips of this stuff...if you were to chug a can you could compete in belching with those dorky kids on the Jackass show.

Pours just like any macro-made pale lager. I don’t understand how people can give this beer any marks for aroma... as it DOESNT HAVE ONE. Tastes like water that had corn soaking in it for a day. Not bad... but only because this beer is completely devoid of anything to offend anyone.

Pros: clean (in the macrobrew marketing since) refreshing, balanced. Cons: corn corn corn corn corn corn corn, low flavour profile.

lowg (148) - Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle, had at my bro’s - one of the beers left over from his World Cup party. Pours a typical golden with an average diminishing head. Aroma was kinda bready. Taste was harsh sweet malt at first, very little hops in the finish. For some reason it got better after a while, the harshness went away. Go figure. Not a bad beer for the price, slightly below average though.

blankboy (5957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear, very bubbly pale gold with an average size diminishing white head. Decent simple aroma of yeast, malt and hops with some hints of fruit -- thankfully no skunkyness or other horrid smells associated with many macros. Malty flavour, some grain and light hops -- slightly watery but I’ve had worse. Light to medium bodied. It’s mediocre but it’s certainly better then many of the other "buck-a-beers".

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2006
341ml bottle, 5.5% a/v Average yellow color with a small white head. Grainy and yeasty aroma like a rising bread before baking. Malty sweet with a slight hop aftertaste. Almost tastes like hard liquor when you take a big sip, but only briefly. Not a bad wobbly pop, good as far as the value beers go.

a bready aroma, a little overly sweet for me, but one of the better ’value’ beers out there and the extra .5 ABV is a bonus

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle- Pours yellow sparkling body. Fizzy white cap, with lots of tight, tiny bubbles, receeding to nil. Little lace. A pronounced stale hop aroma amongst corn and some fruit are present. Slightly hoppy flavour, with again, stale corniness, and a distinct macro finish. It is actually kinda dry. Not really my gig.

jercraigs (7637) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2006
Bottle. Yellow bodied brew, sweet malty aroma with a touch of fruit character. Mild flavour with a sweet malty bass, very mild bitterness. Touch of ingering fruit in the aftertaste. Average palate. Nothing special but surprisingly drinkable, reminds me a bit of Moosehead now that I think about it.

Golden, fizzy, with white head. Very uninteresting, alright ice cold in the sun but thats about it. Not worth drinking again. Unless it’s free, like the one I rated....haha
