COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Contains all the distinguishing features of a true ale, including a good balance of dryness, complemented by a fruity taste and unique hop flavouring.

Not horrible. You can actually detect some hops in the flavour here, then a sweet bready aftertaste. Inoffensive.

Looks like a pale ale/a lager. Was better then I thought it would be but probably won’t drink again. Had the 473ml can version. Really watery at 1st with a little fruitty flavour/sweetness. Heavy from the hops, & mabye I tasted them a little. Flavour goe’s away rather quickly but there is aftertase and yer not left wioth dry lips so in some ways its like a dry beer and in some ways it’s not. cheer’s.

Une odeur qui commence par une petite ’whiff’ the sucre qui disparaît vite. Couleur jaune fluo. Le goût est mieux qu’on pourrait le craindre; il y a un brin d’amertume qui vient balancer le sucre. Au final, c’est mieux qu’une molson Dry mais ça tombe vite sur le coeur.

Tastes like crisp bleach. I don’t really know if it’s better or worse than Canadian. A little better, but the two together are like the oligarchy of Canadian beer. And like any political oligarchy it rules fairly ineptly.

I have no idea what this beer looks like as I don’t think I’ve ever once poured it into a glass. If I have to pick a macro, I usually pick 50. It’s pretty much like the commercial description says it is - fruity and dry. It’s also very heavily carbonated and sort of gives me a bit of headache. This beer does actually have some flavour to it, which puts it far ahead of Bud, or Coors, etc, etc. There are some noticeable hops in there, which is saying a lot for a macro lager. Plus, it comes in a nice tall can now with the old retro design. That’s nice. Take it to the cottage, drink it out of the can, shoot it with a BB gun when you’re done.

355ml can. Pours a clear golden colour with a white head that quickly diminished. Big clumsy bubbles. Well, goddammit there appear to be hops in here, though they are few, and faint. Aromas of sweet malt, icing sugar, with very faint hints of spice, and grapefruit candy. The taste is honestly, not too bad. There is a definite mass produced domestic backbone, but there are also some sweet malt notes, and believe it or not, actual citrus bitterness, and a pleasant floral note in the finish. So overall, not bad (especially when you consider who brewed it) but pretty thin on flavour, and a little pricey for what it actually is. I’ll drink it, but I sure as hell won’t drop the cash, and give in to nostalgia again.

Probably the best beer from the giant brewers category. Its bitterness is pleasant.

This beer actually wasn’t all that bad. I was kind of surprised when I took my first sip that this beer tasted pretty decent (coming from a huge brewery that usually mass-produces swill). The beer poured a bright light golden color with a very huge white head. The head left some nice lacing around the glass. The aroma was mostly straw, light malt and a bit of grassy hops. The flavors were pretty much the same, with notes of light and grassy hops, a bit of toasted malt and some hay/straw. The finish was a lot fuller than their other offerings.

355 ml can from TBS. Can this really be this decent? Or is it the halo effect from enjoying on the dock in Muskoka?? Pours pale golden in colour, decent white head. Aroma and taste are only a hint of adjunct, hint of biscuity malt, and some actual hints of hop. Hmmmm...
