12 oz. bottle @ Reuben’s (not the nice one). The waiter warned me that it was an old man’s beer. I guess old men like terrible beer because this tastes all sorts of funky. Glad that I can just check it off.

740 ml can. Nostalgic impulse buy from the singles bin at Lucky’s Liquor. Bright clear yellow, lasting white foam. Pukey aroma. Bland bready grainy corny taste, maybe some citrus. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Tasted better from a stubby back in the ’70s. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bière blonde limpide avec une bonne effervescence. Col de mousse décent. Arômes de céréales, citron, houblons. En bouche, ce n’est pas si mal. On jurerait goûter le houblon. Les saveurs sont franches, la texture plutôt sèche. Une bière qui descend bien peu importe si elle est froide ou tablette. Bien entendu, on est dans la catégorie très commerciale mais ca reste une bière que je ne refuse pas de temps en temps.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear light golden with a small white head that fizzes away somewhat fast and leave some lacing. Nose is of sweet cereals and adjuncts. Taste is of cereals and that’s about it. Body is light, carbonation medium-high and mouthfeel a little watery. Overall this is down there will all the other macro swills. Maybe a tiny hint superior to other Labbat offerings but that is not saying much....

In Quebec the beer your uncles and the old dudes in the bar drink. Gold with a thicker than average head for a macro-lager so it looks nice enough. The nose is a bit rough, taste wise it is earthy and less sweet than your average macro which is a plus in my book but ultimately it is somewhat below average. I could see this being a hipster beer in the Pabst Blue Ribbon vein.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-31-12-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a one finger white head. The head has moderate retention fading to leave only a decent level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is a mix of malt and a light papery and citrus smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a grainy and light caramel taste. Some notes of a fruity taste come to the tongue as the taste advances mixing with the initial grainy flavors to produce a rather smooth flavor. As the taste goes even further to the end, a light citrus hop and corn flavor come to the tongue and melds well with the smooth bready, grain, and sweet flavors of the brew.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the average to slightly above average side in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that is slightly lower than average. The creamy body accentuated the smoothness of the beer with the lower carbonation only helping it along further.
Overall – I was quite surprised by the brew. While not a flavor powerhouse it was much smoother then I would have expected and was quite easy drinking and enjoyable.

Bottle from Strathroy Alehouse August 2013. Horrible wet straw aroma and a flavour that leaves a lot to be desired.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bit better than some other macros I’ve had. Pale clear yellow pour with minimal head which disappears with no residue. Slight sweetness in the flavour. Light semi watery body with average carbonation.
