Raistlin (124) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2011
Not worth going into detail. This beer while drinkable is totally forgettable. Well below Belgium standards.

probstblueribbon (2918) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2011
500 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a decent white head. Aroma: Faintly metallic, some grassy hops, weak cereals/grains, that’s about it. Palate: Medium body, fine effervescence. Flav.: Wet cardboard and weak cereal/grain, much less hops (not that there was much on the nose to begin with), still a touch metallic, boring; dry with a little bitterness and a fairly lacklustre finish, a touch of fruity malt and a touch of metallic note.

Certainly not Belgium’s best.

Spab (2389) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2011
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear golden colour with average-sized white head. Flavour has some grassy hops and bland grains. Flavour is sweet grains and some light grassy hops. Nothing terrible but totally forgettable.

matt7215 (2173) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2011
500ml can from a 4 pack purchased at the lcbo for $7.60. pours clear yellow with a lasting white head. simple lightly sweet nose with a touch of light hopping. the flavour has some light cereal sweetness. the body is fluffy and the finish is blalanced. pretty drinkable for $1.90 per can.

pootzboy (1590) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2011
Pours a lightly hazed pale gold lager in the glass with a 1 finger white rocky cap. Moderate carbonation, weak lacing. Aroma is subtle - light wafts of malt, earthy hop notes and a light dextrin (LME?) sweetness. Flavor is rounded but balance tends toward the hopping. Fairly 2 dimensional but clean, some LME dextrin notes and a weird piercing hop bite in the end - probably the product of hop extract. A pleasant inoffensive commercial Euro-lager. I detected some portion of malt and hop extract as is expected in a commercial vollbier. It is inoffensive, quenching but at $1.90 a half liter can there are better choices in traditional beers for the same price or less..

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2011
500mL can from an LCBO 4-pack. Pale gold with a small white froth. Aroma is not much, some pale malt with no hops and no skunk. Flavour is a tad overly sweet with the pale malt body, green apple and not enough bitterness in the finish to balance it out. Ingredients list ’unmalted cereals’ which is likely a fancy way of saying shitty corn and rice. There’s just so little to say. I’ll have to inhale the other cans after working up a heavy sweat. Figures the LCBO would go ahead and bring in the least interesting beers from the most interesting beer countries. *rolles eys*

jeremytoni (2981) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2011
From a can poured a golden color with a fair amount of head. Grassy malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

guzzler67 (1502) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 7, 2011
Clear, bright gold appearance with an average size white head and good lacing. Muted aroma, mostly cereal grains. Sweet, slightly vegetal, marginally hopped taste. Fizzy, light bodied mouthfeel with a short lived finish.
