TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2004
This is the Northern Ontario "letís get pissed" beer for blue collar dirtbags who want to get sophisticated, but canít afford Keithís. Typical Labatt product - lifeless, uninteresting, a rip off if it was free, and youíd still want your money back.

Crockett (1009) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2004 This is the beer of choice for my dad. For some reason, it's just friggin huge in Bruce County Ontario. Extremely pale. Very fizzy. "Pops" doesn't have to worry about me drinking his beers. If you own a trailer, lock the fridge before you go to bed! Somewhat refreshing. Must be served at exactly 3 degrees celcius.

Strangebrewer (875) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
bottle. Poured clear light amber with a chunky white head. Sweet grassy aroma. Light body, boring mouthfeel, almost flat with a sticky finish. Grainy flavour, pale malts with faint herbal hops.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2007
341ml Bottle: My wifeís 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 Iíd "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 tíwas poured into. A delicate aroma of air and water. The taste.. well, itís better than Blue. But then again, so is a ninja throwing star to the left nut.

plain, watery. i had no idea that this stuff was still around. i was shocked to find it in a bar when i asked for a bottle of their least popular beer. pale and plain.

sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2006
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.

iambeer (255) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2005
This is better a better lager from the big canadian macro brew. Price is reasonable, a very good beer. Too bad they donít make it theyíre flagship brew, better then Blue.

nefarious (220) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2008
Every time I go to Canada I make sure this is one of the brew I pick up. Its just a good macro lager. Nothing special aweful aroma and and almost completely clear with a strawn and cereal flavor. Goes down like water. MMMMMMMMMMMM

collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2006
wanted to try this for a while, and Iím dissapointed. I refiuse to belive that this is "unchanged in recepie since the 1800ís" as this tastes, much like okeef does now, like a very modern beer with just a splash of old world flavor in it. And itís not realy a hoppy taste anyways, itís a little maltyer. Thatís it thatís all. Overall Nice, light, plesant taste of light malt, medium high carbonation, and a lingering skunky aftertaste. Everything but the aftertaste screams out lawnmower beer. Cheers. {oh ps, I think if this is the unchanged way it tasted back when it was created, I CAN belive it was labatís first lager ever, seing as they still canít seem to get it right. Cheers}
