1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mostly doughy, bready character with some sweet raisin and grape juice notes. It’s slightly acidic on the nose with some background notes of caramel and corn. It pours clear, mostly yellow, with a shade of orange. It’s a very oily look, much more so once the low density, large bubbled white head dissipates to nothing quickly. There’s no lace left behind. Very light tastes; light bitter and light sweetness. It’s a light bodies beer on the thin side of oily for it’s texture. There’s a very light, prickly carbonation. It finishes crisp, with a grainy / resin feel and a bready flavor (cornbread maybe?) as well as a sweet lemon citrus with a slight touch of caramel. The lemon hangs around with a light grassy / resin touch in the aftertaste, but it’s light, and short lived.

This beer is gross. It should not be consumed unless you are still in college and can’t afford anything else.

$1.29 for the 709 mL can purchased from town yesterday morning. Consumed in a Starbucks bathroom. Had made my morning. To Starbucks espresso cup, it pours a yellowish hazy piss color; little trimmed whitish head. Experienced corn, spent grain, bread yeast, and croutons. The employees were not happy what I did in their restroom.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a very pale colour with light carbonation. Corn syrup smell with a slight hint of grains and hops. A very light tasting beer, with somewhat decent flavor, fairly sweet and lightly bitter. Overall its an easy to drink beer that’s refreshing, but nothing id go out of my way to buy, definitely not something i would drink if i wanted flavor.

For a Canadian beer it is just OK. Would rather have a Molson or Moosehead.
