1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
341mL bottle and 355mL cans. Many samples. Overall, this is probably the most generic pale lager you are going to find in Canada. Ubiquitous, cheap, and displaying no brewing flaws though it is a bit "fruity" in the pale lager sense.
It pours with an extremely light SRM2 with a suddy, temporary white head. No real lace. Nose is sweet grain, light fruit, and sugar. Taste is hummingbird food- straight sugar water, with huge seltzer water carbonation. Very easy to drink- more like soda water. Inoffensive and relatively characterless. A small step up from Bud Light.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tried a bottle of Kokanee Glacier Beer that my sister brought home from Canada during the summer of 2005.
Light yellow color with a white head. Very light scent and flavor, easy to drink and easy to forget. Works well in the summer heat, but leaves a lot to wish for in taste.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear yellow, thin white head. Aroma has a tiny bit of grass, some grain. Taste is very weak with notes of grass, some grain and bread, tiny bitter at the end.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Yellow body. Interesting melange of macro flavours. Some sweet grainy lightly fruity notes in both the aroma and flavour. Mild hoppy bitterness is very lightly grassy. Bit more flavour than your average MolBatts product but still nothing special. Average to light palate.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to my buddy for forgetting a few cans of this in my fridge so I didn’t actually have to spend money on it. Pale golden colour with a thick white head fading to lace. Grassy aroma, faintly malty. Slightly sweet malty flavour but low bitterness. Very boring, but not bad.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pale gold, heavily carbonated; huge, collapsing snow-white head. Dull-sweet malty and gassy nose, not very inviting. Sweet pale malts taste, vague liquorice flavour, soapy. Sticky, near-cloying MF; ends empty, starch-like. Vague aftertaste of decaying hay. Horrible concoction. What a terrible way to pollute water - just when glaciers are receding everywhere!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap. Pale yellow with a thin dissipating white head. Light grain nose and very little taste. As far as pale lagers go, it is neither flavorful nor offensive.

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2003 Very light afternoon beer, not much taste, but not as carbonated as macro beer. I remember it being better though.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not a bad example of the macro pale lager style-- at least it is clean, with a fresh grainy aroma and palate. It’s interesting that this was the only Canadian beer aside from the Unibroue line that I found while living in West Australia.
