1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Had many of these on Sunday at a friendís... drunk from the can. Didnít get sleepy at all, as a heavier beer would have done, so Iím reminded a bit of why the pale lagers remain popular.
A bit tangy, but other than that this had very little flavour. Smells like corn. Reminded me a bit of a poorly made Italian pale lager. Really feels like it was made in a factory.

Just because Iím on the Island! On tap. Pours a clear gold with moderate head. Aromas of corn sugar and grain. Flavors of same plus chewy malts. Maybe because itís fresh and on tap - itís not as bad as others rate. Canít say itís very inspiring tho... Definitely a pounder for after a round of golf on a hot day...

The only people who think this beer is an A+ are hicks and inbredís. Not a bad beer but not great.

Iíd been eyeing this one at the liquor store for awhile, wondering (or perhaps dreading) what this cheap lager may taste like in comparison to the oodles of other cheap lagers Iíve tried around the world. It pours with a slightly creamy but rather crappy head and heavily carbonated body. Aroma is all corn sweetness, not overbearing or disgusting however. Flavour is soft caramel leaning slightly into cardboard territory with a dry finish. While certainly not great, this is not in the drainpour category and probably isnít too bad an option for a cheap back porch brew that can be downed by the dozen.

Draft - Light sweet malts. Clear pale gold with a decent whitehead. Light sweetness and not much else. Lights and wet.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not necessarily a bad beer, just mass produced and generic. Aroma and flavour of wheats and grains, with little else going for it.

12oz can (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste of the same. A light bodied brew I would pound in college.

No real flavor, zero head, and slightest hops. Pretty gross stuff IMO. I literally found this under the seat while borrowing an alcoholics car. I'm glad I didn't pay for it. Disclaimer: I put it in the fridge, drank it in the house, and did not drive after. Can't say the same for the previous 5 from the pack unfortunately.

Well itís a Canadian legend. Not not all legends are great in the end, just look at Lance Armstrong. This beer is like Lance in that it pretends to be something itís not. Is it a lager? sort of...

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Complete garbage that gets by purely on marketing it as some kind of sign that one is an "islander" (Vancouver Islander, that is).
Aroma? What aroma? Thereís simply nothing there - air tinged with a hint of grain. Appearance is about the same as a Budweiser or any other macro lager - pale yellow and not much else. Taste is minimal, like club soda with essence of beer. Palate is faintly metallic, lifeless wisps of nothing.
Overall, I cannot understand why on earth this beer is popular, other than as a "camping beer". Even then, thereís a lot better choices out there.

I hate the phrase " it is what it is" but it totally applies here. When Iím at the lake or have plans to consume more than a couple, this is my thrifty choice. I enjoy many other types of beer but it also comes at different price points .
