Headbanger (3051) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a decent sized head. Aroma of corn grains, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth.

Pretty average beer but a good one considering it comes from a macro brewery. It has good balance. Great for lawn mowing

1998 vintage can. Pours slightly hazier than the norm. Flavor is almost nonexistent.

Defensemaster (27) - GERMANY - OCT 21, 2013
Light amber with a bit of haze and little head retention, the aroma is a tad lemony. The taste is unremarkable with a dry finish. ---Cheers until next time! DMSR

NielsenRatings (8279) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of BlackIPA. Fucken chinchillin motha fucka. Pours a bit hazy, light yellow appearance with a white head. Corny, lemon, sweet malty, bland, slight cleanser aroma. A bit twangy, candy corn, lemon, cracker, spritzy flavor that finishes pretty dry. Actually pretty fucken damn decent. [Update: note the distribution of ratings! Really fucken high variance I haven’t seen since Samuel Adams Triple Bock.]

AlainG (1040) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2013
Bon, quoi de mieux qu’une vieille taverne pour une bonne 50? C’est pâlotte et ça ne mousse pas fort, du moins, elle ne reste pas en place. Un nez malté, sucré et métallique. Un goût pas des plus raffiné, sans être des plus coriaces non plus. Ça égratigne un peu au passage. C’est aussi minéral avec une légère amertume. Dire que c’est la première bière que j’ai bue et on trouvais qu’elle était plus "forte" que les autres...(839-031013)

Bahumat (76) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
Lagery, watery. Inoffensive, not much hops. Good aroma, bready. Astringent midtongue mouthfeel. Overall, 7/20.

tompete (198) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with a thin fast disappearing head. Aroma is slight floral and the barest suggestion of spice. Flavour is very light with pale malts and a tiny hint of bitterness. The finish has something very off putting, almost sour. Strange because it was from a can and poured.

hellonearth (36) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 Gazéifiée à souhait avec une légère amertume sympathique. La couleur est jaune-dorée. Goût de céréales (peut-être même de riz) et de sucre. Franchement ma préférée de toutes les bières commerciales (Labatt / Molson) disponibles au Québec. Avec une petite aura de "bière de mononc des années 70" qui pourrait faire de la 50 la Pabst Blue Ribbon du Québec, en terme d’image.

JFGrind (1811) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Pale yellow, Blonde Ale, slight floral aroma, grass, pale malt and light bitterness. Haven’t had a ’50’ in many moons. Back in the late 80’s you could find 50 Ale, O’Keefe’s, Moosehead, Molson Golden, Grizzly and Glacier Bay at NJ Liquor Stores.
