light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal), only trace hops

bitter, lightly acidic. Light to medium body, watery texture, fizzy

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. At some "Irish" bar near The Docks I forget the name of. Well lookee, another Canadian PL I haven’t rated. You need to hear this? Pale yellow, fizzy, clear, small white head. Smells like sweet stale grain and mildly of cardboard, tastes the same, no aftertaste, no linger, no garbage at least, but NOTHING to make me ever drink it again, hot babes in their commercials or no - watery, barely carbonated, blah.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can (355ml) on a plane. Pours a clear gold with a large fluffy white head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is sweet and corny, quite sugary and a bit vegetal -- not good at all. Watery flavour is sugary sweet with a light bitter finish. Quite carbonated. Average bodied. Your standard Canadian macro Lager, needless to say I had no more beer on this flight.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours light gold with a white head. Light sweet malt aroma with grain and honey. Light clean body. Flavor is again malty with grain and a hint of grass. Not that bad.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Poured gold with a whispy disappearing head. Aroma has notes of lightly sweet adjuncts and malts and a mild crispness. Flavor has the same profile as the aroma. It finishes crisp, but has a light sulphuric chemical note in the back end. It was crisp. Better than BMC.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2008 Bottle bought at the Utah State Store. Pours a very clear yellow with a small white head. Usually, I see a beer with this much clarity as a good thing in a pale lager. The aroma is is mostly skunky and metallic notes. The taste is pretty bad; first, it surprises me how much alcohol is in the taste, like a over fermented batch of corn and stagnant water. Some soap and odd metal in there too. Sorry, but this was pretty bad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a can. Visual cue: it’s Bud, I’d say. Pissy yellow with a big white foamy head. Richer in flavor than I’d expected ... malty biscuit, but without any off-putting starchiness. Not bad for the style.
