This is better a better lager from the big canadian macro brew. Price is reasonable, a very good beer. Too bad they don’t make it they’re flagship brew, better then Blue.

A excellent lager with a clean crisp taste from Labatt’s and it’s nothing like Blue.

Preservative free, you can kind of taste that. If you can get over that initial slightly sour taste you can really enjoy it. My favourite by far.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2003 I was skeptical at first since I always saw yokels drink this at the bar. However, a very decent, clean, crisp tasting lager from Labatt"s. I enjoy it.

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!

-If you can find Crystal in cans, try it. Oddly, those who swear by it tell me it’s a ’Different Beer’ than Crystal in Bottles. I must say,to my suprise, there is a discernable diff. 3 Stars Bottled, 41/2 cans. -Do the test I think you’ll all be Oddly suprised.

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

This strange Labatt brew is a bit uneven in just about every aspect. The color seemed to split from top to bottom like a black & tan, the top being solid gold, straw-like in color where as the bottom was a lighter diluted yellow, a small whiteish head about a finger high came out on top but said goodbye within a second. Smell is uneven as well, with a musty hop, lightly citrusy, and a real weird raw oatmeal quality that seemed to dart in one nostril and out the other. Taste is lightly floral hops, quite subdued in approach, it stands up with good sweetish caramel malts and some grains of bread floating lightly in the mix. Again, there seemed to be empty spots, and some odd mixing of flavors and textures that were just to light to get a good hold on.

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.

Pale straw pour. The aroma is loghtly grainy with a very faint grassy aroma as well. Light bodied - tending to watery. Simple pale lager - not bad as these things go. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
