COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hopped to the same level as Kokanee, to give the same smooth taste, but with lighter body & alcohol content.

If original kokanee has little flavour, this has none. I am not sure what hops they are talking about in the description because this tastes like straw flavoured water with no alcohol. Yuck.

355ml can. Pale yellow coloured brew with a surprisingly decent looking and long lasting white head. Aromas of grain and minerals. Grainy taste with a little sweetness, finish is watery. Typical macro carbonation. Actually not that bad as far as macro lights go.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Can. 4%. Weak white foam that fizzes away quickly. Aroma is corn and grains. Taste is watery, grainy. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, but there is no flavour to really speak of.

RichardGretton (4259) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2012
Can on Rocky Mountaineer Train, Canada. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is lightly yeasty and dry, and the flavour is yeasty and mildly dry. Overall not too bad for a beer described as light. Very similar to a standard lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

341ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a small white head which leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light cereal grains and fruit with some mild grass. Taste is light malty sweet, light hop bitterness. LIght bodied with little carbonation. Typical macro brew, enough said.

campat (7) - Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012 does not count
Not as good as a Bud Light Lime but still does the job. Which is odd from Pilsner.

presario (4649) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2012
Can. Gold with minimal head. Looks like a regular Kokanee. Light almost fruity scent. Strong metallic note up front and then settles done to a very light taste. A bit of a fruit note o more of a presence than Coors Light. Still a bit of metallic in the finish.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Sort of a fizzy water. Not a real beer at all. Pale yellow with a thick head that soon departed. Not much aroma. Light watery body, almost no flavour. Only finish was a carbonated burp.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2009
I found a bottle of this in a friends fridge. I had seen this beer before, but it is not as common as other macro light beers. Pour is bland golden body with a frothy head. Aroma is grainy and slightly skunky. Carbonation and water are the main tastes. Nothing here. I will not drink this beer again.

CapFlu (4548) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 23, 2007
(Can) Purchased at the BCLS Fort Street in Victoria for $1.70. Pours a quick dissipating white frothy head atop a light golden body. Nose is fizzy and slightly grainy. Flavour is bland - watery with no terrible taste. Bland and boring.
