This isn’t terrible. Just boring. Goes down smooth like most macros. This has sweet grain aromas and flavors. That’s it.

ametras (336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
341ml bottle. Clear golden with a thin foamy white head. Flavors are pale malts, sugar and caramel with floral notes. Light citrusy hops and bitterness. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, smooth texture. The best swill you can get.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
A staple of the Kraft dinner days of college revisited at a dive bar. Golden colour and a quickly vanishing head of fizz give way graininess and a small bit of DMS. High carbonation is masking any subtle flavouring as is the cold temperature, which is likely for the best. Flavour is all pale malt and grain. Finishes off quickly and unmemorable. Similar to running into an ex-girlfriend and then wondering what you were thinking all those years ago that made you stick around for so long.

BiereLuc (866) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bière blonde, relativement claire, surmontée d’un col de mousse éphémère. Au nez, un vent de grains frais discute avec une brise citronnée. En bouche, un pétillement ardent mais de courte durée laisse place à des pointes herbacées et une finale plus acide (qui rappelle encore le citron). Peut-être est-ce mon esprit «vintage», mais il s’agit probablement de ma concoction préférée chez Labatt. Bien qu’elle soit relativement simple, cette bière ne présente aucun défaut majeur. Quand j’ai envie d’une blonde de soif et que je n’ai pas accès à des bières de microbrasseries, je m’accommode franchement d’une 50 comme mon père avait l’habitude d’en boire. Sauf que moi je la verse dans un verre!

Headbanger (3230) - 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 (30) - 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

TwoSipDip (8948) - 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.]

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)
