This ale poured a crystal clear, light yellow colour with a decent, bright white head. Scents include corn, bread and hay. First sip was as thin as gasoline. No body at all. Flavours weak of light grain and hop. Very light bitterness to the finish. Drinkable but common corporate slop.

Can. Not only did I buy a can of this beer, I bought it at Rogers Centre so I paid $12 for it! Yeah, they classify it as a Domestic Premium beer. What a joke!! I mean it’s not terrible, but there is nothing here to make me want another one.

Blond beer Comercial ! Not the best but drinkable in high quantity! Better in draft

AleRider78 (628) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Enjoyed in many variations (can, draft) but for this one, poured from bottle. Pours a fairly large head and dissipates pretty quickly. Has a pale yellow/golden colour. Ok lacing. A pretty faint hoppy aroma, mostly wheats and grains. Well balanced hoppy and malty flavours. Somewhat grainy on the finish. Borderline watery mouthfeel but with a bit of creaminess and good retention. A perfect above average abv session beer. My go-to NFL Sunday beer.

Can from sobeys. Pours golden with no real head. Aromas of corn and barley. Some metallic notes. Taste is grainy and sweet. No corn or metallics in the taste. Not terrible.

AgentAle (1493) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2016
Aroma is honey caramel and sulphur. Taste is bland malts and basic bittering hops. Finishes flat. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that dissipates quickly.

Lagerboy (1910) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016
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)

Franckg (1112) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2015
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.

mathieuc (3254) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
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....

MacBoost (1738) - Penfield, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle from Wegmans. Different label, it is green. Pours a light gold, with almost no head. Aromas of hops and corn. Watery, bland. Thin. Low boost. Was expecting more.

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.
