3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Original review posting date 5/8/2008...
On tap at The Dubliner in Ottawa...
Looks a little better than the average macro bear - more of a darker - maybe honey - color with typical quick and ample carbonation. Head wasn’t too bad.
No crap on the nose - it smells very clean - sort of the way I remember Alpine Lager from the Maritimes. No silage from the minimal Saaz hops and adjuncts really shows up on the beak, but...
...the silage does make a grand entrance on the palate, as does a little rice(?) adjunct. Still it’s pretty crisp and inoffensive.
This style lends itself to crappy aftertastes, but I don’t really get one here. Finish is light as expected.
If it’s the only thing around I could session this up pretty easily. Not the end-all by any means but a pleasant surprise for the style.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The standard macro brew growing up in Western Canada. Light golden colour with no head. Taste is a bit better than most macro’s but nothing I would recomend.

Light gold, clear, white head. Aroma of grainy sweet, corn-like malt. Flavor is similar, with a touch of green apple. Standard American/Canadian light lager.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Had this on draught last night; I guess it’s time to review my province’s most rated beer. Transparent yellow, no head. Nose is mostly metal and bread. Flavour is same, slightly more hop grassiness than the average pale lager which may have brought up the ratings as otherwise this is an awful beer that I couldn’t finish... the metallic breadiness is something else, I even prefer most crappy Asian lagers to this one.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Was introduced to this on a great 4th of July weekend in Fargo with family a few years ago. The appearance & aroma are very similar to a light beer, pale yellow with a thin white head and a fairly non-existent aroma. However, the flavor is much more enjoyable. Taste is corn, with subtle hops, crisp and clean. Easy drinking & recomended.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle, thanks to Mike. Notes of sulfur, corn, pilsner malt. This is a standard American lager.

One of the better pale lagers I’ve tried, cereal in nature, but smooth and mild, and tastes really good. Surprised, but pleasantly so. Cereal grains mainly in aroma and taste, Mouthfeel is light, but not watery. Refreshing, and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle pours a golden yellow color with a thin white head that leaves ok lacing. smells of sweet malt and light hops. Tastes of the same things in the smell. mouthfeel is light and chewy with decent carbonation. Overall not bad for a canadian macro lager. One of my favorites as far as macro lagers go.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Blonde très pâle, mousse blanche à la surface. Odeurs attendues de maïs et de sucres, avec un fond de céréales blondes. En bouche, les sucres sont encore puissants, mais on distingue les céréales, bien que le mélange lui-même soit horriblement générique. Pas trop pétillante, démontrant une certaine saveur, on peut la classer légèrement au-dessus de la moyenne de son insipide catégorie.
