650 ml bottle from LCBO. Toronto, ON. Pours a straw colour with a small white head. In the beginning the taste is malty which leads to a well balanced hoppy finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

fhoublon (312) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Bouteille de 633 ml (5% ABV) achetée dans une SAQ. Brassée le 7 janvier 2003 par Anheuser-Bush. Dégustée le 10 avril 2005. Bière blonde limpide. Mousse assez, col moyen, grossier, durable. Peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Légère odeur de céréales et de sucre. Douce, assez sucrée, amère en finale. Bonne mais manque un peu de saveur.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked 07JAN14 so this may be a bit old. Yellow pour that explodes to a white fizzy, lingering head. Looks right on for the style. For a brown bottle that smells pretty skunky unfortunately. But sticking my nose deeper into the mix I pick up a decent enough toasted biscuit malt character and clean hop balance. The light and refreshing body is where it should be for the style. The taste picks things up a hair with a solid roasted malt character taking over everything and a clean, crisp finish. I would drink first this one over certain other American Pale Lagers

Watery pale lager with very little to go on. Slightly sweet and refreshing on a hot day and not much else.
