I notice a trend in the reviews. Most people from Quebec seem to like this ale a lot. Well I’m no exception. This is my ’every day’ beer. Does it mesure up to microbrewery beers? No. But it’s my favorite of all the macrobreweries. Nice golden color, true ale taste with a nice little fruity finish to it. The head is typical macro though. Too bubbly and gone in seconds but other than that, a solid brew. Hard to find outside Quebec. I think it’s called Labatt Canadian Ale in the U.S. but I don’t know if it’s as good.

Same story: Classic Canadian brew gets ’Americanized’ to increase sales below the border - winds up a bare notch better than American macroswill, when it was once a fine Canadian ale. Pleasant enough to drink, but eminently forgettable, too.

Drinkable but definitely not a favorite.

This is just bad. I am really, really disappointed with this beer; after having Blue, I guess I just thought it would have a taste. It was so watery and thin and bland that I poured out the last of it because I just couldn’t force myself to drink anymore.

Old school. Basic stuff. Still the domain of hardcore drinkers who are set in their ways. No problem with that!

Easily Canada’s best and most underrated beer. Try it again and you’ll see.

Nothing special. It’s not trying to be anything special, and I like it for its simplicity. A drinkable, average brew I wouldn’t go out of my way to get, but I’ll glady drink one when given to me.
