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}

Spab (2388) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2011
341 ml bottle from Beer Store. Pours a clear light golden yellow with a white head that quickly disappears to virtually nothing. Aroma is stale grains and a little grass. Taste also has a certain staleness to it with grains and grass. As light a body as would be expected. Weak but there are a lot of worse macro lagers out there.

(Bottle) Finally got around to filing this American Standard. Pours a medium white head and a golden body. Gets its smoothness from the watery flavour. Average

Yah, had this at a country bar, straight from the bottle. About as great as I expected it to be. No better than Blue or anything generic like that.

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.

We had many of those last night (oh man what a night). I hated that watery stuff. I could not find anything positive in this beer. Weak even for American standard.

When Interbrew thins out the Labatts roster, this will be one of the first to go. No one will notice.

Crockett (1008) - 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.

Someone told me this stuff was like 50 and Blue mixed together...if that were true, I wouldnít 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 donít buy this anymore. Youíre better off getting Lucky Lager, as thereís barely a difference.
