Pours a light golden yellow color. Aromas of a little skunk( nice hints of malt and grass. Flavor is an almost watered down version of its big brother, with some of the taste.

I don’t know if it’s the palate or the pride that makes me love this beer so much. Northern Ontario has much love for this beer and not too many others. I don’t know if it’s because I was raised on this stuff or it’s actually delicious... but i love it!

Very drinkable...seems to have some odd connection with the town of Brantford or anyone in the 519 area code....they seem to have a loyalty. Very watery.. not my thing

one of the most refreshing beers i have ever had, great with hot wings or pizza, a bit expensive,easy drinking, but nice subtle taste and clean finish, nice colour and average head, light corn smell. this beer lives up to its name, just to price

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
341ml Bottle: My wife’s family have SO many weddings every year, always at the same place, who only serve five pieces of macro crap. Finally, last night, I decided to try Crystal. The lady at the bar informed me, with a very straight face, that I’d "never drink another brand" after; high praise, indeed! Poured a gentle, unassuming yellow with an ever-so-slight edge of white head on the plastic glass t’was poured into. A delicate aroma of air and water. The taste.. well, it’s better than Blue. But then again, so is a ninja throwing star to the left nut.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of light corn and grain, spicy, earthy hops. The hops are very subtle. The taste is the same. Sharp carbonation, watery mouthfeel. A decent pale lager--which isn’t saying much.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Someone told me this stuff was like 50 and Blue mixed together...if that were true, I wouldn’t hate this beer so much. Bland, boring, and not really any better than Blue, just different in a gross way. Not surprising that even old men don’t buy this anymore. You’re better off getting Lucky Lager, as there’s barely a difference.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Standard light yellow appearance, with a bit of a white head. A slightly stronger malt flavouring than most macro lagers. Worth checking out but probably not sticking with.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks Jimmy for this one! Bottle- Sparkly gold pour emits a loud and fizzy bleached white head, with little retention. Mostly grainy aroma with a slight skunk. Stale hops flavours offer more flavour than blue, but after reading the description about Saaz hops, I tried to detect these very distinguishable hops, and couldn’t. There’s more flavours here, but I can’t put my finger on it. Better than blue in any event. Doesn’t seem to be too popular in my area.
