Personally one of my favourite beers, mainly due to the price. hey im in University its kind of pricey. but decent taste, noting to brag about but it satisfies me. if youíre on a tight budget this is the beer for you

asheft (2441) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2006
Clear, anemic gold with a lasting, thin, white cover. Not effervescent and almost olive oil in colour. Corn and alcohol aroma with pissy noble hops. Alcoholic corny flavour (surprise surprise) with a chemical bitterness. At least it wasnít skunky, even though it was moderately offensive nonetheless. Light body with generous carbonation and a chemical, motor oil feel.

Eructoblaster (2850) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2006
Bottle. Boring blond body with diminishinf white bubbly head. Weak malty/hoppy aroma with corny notes. Taste is mostly watery and carries bas corny and CO2 hints. Finish is non-existent. Bad stuff.

radiomgb (2143) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2006
341ml bottle from <a href=http://www.thebeerstore.ca/ target=blank>The Beer Store in Peterborough, Ontario. Clear pale straw in colour with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head, no lacing. The aroma is very sweet, lots of grains and cereal, large amounts of sweet corn. The sweetness carries over into the flavour, crisp and sharp, some corn. Nothing really special. Dry mouthfeel, light body, medium carbonation. FInishes quick, light lingering sweetness. Pretty basic stuff, nothing new to offer here.

Classic Saskatchewan brew here. Hated by locals but not too bad if you havenít tasted it before. Pours a yellow gold. Wheaty nose and hoppy finish. Average flavor. Great price!

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAR 14, 2006
Pale gold with average for lager carbonation, average white head, rather short lived. Malty base but with out the depth of true Bohemian lagers. Something between factory and craft beer. Disappointing finish, lacking depth.

mds (2167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2006
bottle. thanks Doug for picking this one up. pours a clear, pale golden body with a medium white head. smells of unrefined sweet grain and corn - in other words, not all that pleasing. almost completely flavourless, itís like drinking sweeetened water. oh well.

yarry (527) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2006
341 ml Bottle, 5% a/v Looks like a pretty average pale lager, golden color, white head. Smells of corn with a sugary hint.. not quite malt. Tastes a bit corny and some malt.. Pretty standard macro lager fare here. But hey... its a buck a beer!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2006
Nose is corn and a trace of malt, pale yellow, pours a huge, short lived white head. Taste is mostly corn, some metalic notes too. Light bodied, unsmooth. Poor.

Gorbalev (2893) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2005
Bottle, Watts Lake, Ontario at my Dadís hunting camp. We got drunk and crashed some surrounding area camps the night before deer hunting started this year, and at one of the camps, they gave us these. Ratings while deer hunting, I didnít expect it! This was a dark yellow (I got a glass) with a fluffy white head. Light mouthfeel, this was a macro lager no different expect for the fact that there was some malt sweetness I wasnít expecting at all. I had a few and didnít mind it actually, quite drinkable in the circumstance. But to actually rate it, it probably falls just below the John Labatt standard of macro lagers.
