Another run of the mill beer from a large brewery. This poured from a bottle that was purchased at the "Liquor Store" in St. Johns, NL. It poured a light straw color with a white fluffy head that dissipated quickly. This tastes just like you would expect from Labatt, very light and watery. I guess it tastes fine but a very boring beer.

341ml bottle from a pub on George St. Only available in NFLD as far as I know. Sweet and slightly metalic, it was macrobrew at its most representative. May have seemed better than it was because I had just finished four double White Russians at Lottie’s across the street.

Tessic (840) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2010
This ale pored a crystal clear, light yellow colour with a nice, bright white, foamy head. To the nose... scents of rotten eggs and corn... mmmm, mmm! First sip was watery and had a flavour of wine. Typical white bread beer from Labatts...crap!

Cirrhosis (1201) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Crystal clear typical lager gold, with a thin cap that disappeared before I could right this sentence down. Slight chemical sent mixed in with a ton of cheap malts and just a touch of apple for good measure, not a good smell but could be way worse. A dusty stale flavor that’s all malts no hops can be found, very surprisingly there is no bread flavor to found in this cheap ass crap lager from the east coast of Canada. The after taste is a strange flavor that reminds me of grape bubble gum that you’ve chewed for way to long. This stuff is swill but still kind of drinkable, you could find better beer any where, even in a Mexican back ally probally.

Taste is a personal thing and Jockey Club is one of my favourite beer. I really like this beer. It’s one I can drink all night.

Gethinbeer (2146) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 16, 2006
From bottle in a pub on Gerge St, St Johns. Attracted to this beer by the name and the label. The aroma reminds me of a lager. Clear, light yellow with a very thin head. Sweet and a little scenty in flavour, however got a bit watery. I actually thought this beer was drinkable, well maybe only one. Pleasnt beer I thought.

Crystal golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of malt, sugar and some cardboard. Light-bodied; Malty flavour with not much else. Overall, bland and horrible...funny name though! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle on 15-May-2004 at the May RB Party in Toronto, Ontario.

Maybe I’m going out on a limb, but I don’t think it’s as bad as everyone else does. The best part: poured a beautiful pearly froth of suds on top of a nice rusty gold water. Then the head vanished to a slight lace. I could see huge amounts of carbonation. This beer looks like the beer conjured up for most everyday folks when the word ’beer’ is spoken aloud. Smells of hops, a light grassy aroma. A crisp mouthfeel. Nothing to write up gloriously. Tastes of a slight sweet malt, some lemon, some hoppy-round-bitter, but with the usual macro adjuncts. The worst: the aftertaste is not complimentary. It’s essentially morning mouth. Very close to most macros, but marginally better because of the awesome appearance. Not as good as Black Horse in the drinkability department.

You’re kidding right. Jockey’s - and everyone else - should stay away from this "Corn on the" club. Good as a wet liquid when the water needed refilling and between big beers - otherwise, you’re kidding right?

Pale golden colour, with a thin fast fading white head. Malt aroma, slightly fruity. Very thin body however with zero hoppiness or bitterness.
