Pours a pale crystal clear yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is faint cereal hop and grain. Taste is thin bodied but fairly tasty pale ale. Lightly malted and light floral and cereal hop.

Pretty damn good for a pale lager. The sorachi gives it a little aroma that distinguishes it from your average lager. Pours pale and pissy as any of its peers, quickly dying head. Has a crisp taste (that sounds like a beer commercial). Ya. Bottle.

SlovakSniper (3360) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 11, 2012
Une petite bouteille achetée en Ontario. Une lager très pâle et chauve. Un nez de céréales pâles avec une touche sucrée qui me semble insaisissable. Une pointe de vanille et/ou de fruits? Des fleurs? Un goût léger de malts pâles accompagnés par une infime touche de douceur. Une bouche mince et une texture fuyante. Un pétillement qui me semble être forcé. Une finale inintéressante sur des saveurs qui se perdent dans l’eau. Tout compte fait, pas mon meilleur achat.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2011
Wimpy little 275ml single bottle from my local llikkbo. Pours a pale yellow with a white froth that goes flaccid faster than an old man coming to the end of a viagra stint. Aroma is dull and lifeless and warrants little comment. Flavour has some nice pale malt character over shadowed by some serious popcorn butter flavour, which seems like a serious flaw but thankfully I don’t mind dyaceytl. Duggan’s seems to me like a modest brewery with much to be modest about. EDIT: holy crap sorachi is a variety of hops!? I’m presuming then, that the beer name is meant to be ironic.

Bottle. Poured clear yellow with small light head. Not much aroma or flavour. Light spicy aroma with light dry finish.

probstblueribbon (3062) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011
275 ml bottle from LCBO (via my bro), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 11SE11.

App.: Clear light golden with a decent white meringue. Aroma: Light toasted rice and wheat, an odd bit of tang, a wee hint of vague fruitiness. Palate: Medium body, sloppy carbonation. Flav.: Cardboard, vaguely peppery, grain, minerals, oddly bitter; dry with surprising bitterness given the muted character of the beer, vague biscuit and fruitiness, a little herbal.

More interesting than Coors Light for sure. Seems odd and fails to meet expectations.

Bottle, pours bright yellow colour, really nothing special, it tastes a little better as you drink more. But not one I would likely have again. Pretty basic beer

Metalchopz (2404) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 12, 2012
Smaller 275ml single bottle (luckily, one was alone beside their 6-pack) from the LCBO. Pours a light golden colour with a small white head that disappears quickly. Real cereal malt scent... yeah, the real stuff - no corn. Pretty decent aromas for a light beer. Light-bodied and mildly carbonated. The taste though is kind of weird. Lightly malty, but with rice (it seems) in the aftertaste. Too bad the nice cereal present in the nose is not really showing in the taste. Still, a better than most macro light beers.

rederic (3063) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2012
275ml bottle, bright pale blonde color, with an off-white head, light honeyed pale, pilsener, wheat malt, faint vanilla nose, with a very weak floral fruity hop accent in the aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a mild yeasty, doughy, vanilla, light apple sauce fruity character with a very weak flowery fruity pear, lychee, apple, mango hoppy flavour, leading towards a yeasty, doughy, vanilla, subtle lingering fruity hop bitterness finish

czar (4687) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2012
pours very clear light yellow with a very small white, very little retention. cereals, light lemon, not much sorachi here, cardboard, spicyness, metal, herbeceous hops. overly carbonated, light body. bland and disappointing.
