Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Whyíd they bother? Is there that big of a Saskatchewan ex-pat community in Ontario that anyone would buy this? Oh... itís cheap. I see. Tastes cheap too. With that corn/chemical tang so typical of Molson. No worse (or better) than Canadian, Blue etc. (Amazing to read the first few entries for this brew from a year or so ago. They MUSt have changed the recipe)

clear gold, no head. banana and sweet corn aroma. sweet sugary cory flavour. a little fruity in the finish, but no hops to be seen for a "bohemian"

Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2005
A Saskatchewan regional beer thatís been moved into Ontario to compete in the discount market. Straw colour. Creamed corn and vague hop in the slightly metallic aroma. Fairly clean flavour with hints of bread and fruity hop notes. Even the finish has a faint hop note amidst the wetness.

Crockett (1002) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2005
Pale gold extra fizzy and sweet. I guess the hops had dropped out on my bottle. Corny sweet aroma. I have come to the conclusion that this is just over carbonated Canadian. It tastes mildly better.

paco (527) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAY 15, 2005
Nothing special here. Golden yellow, small white head. Slightly biitter. Little carbonation. Decent beer if you are planning a heavy session.

MrManning (1982) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2005
Pours a golden body with a medium sized white head. Aromas are malty, bready, and of grass or plants. taste is sweet malts, and some mild hops bitterness. Finish is mildly bitter. A decent beer for $13 a twelve pack.

Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2005
So cheap, $13 for a twelve-pack! Easy drinkable beer. Poured a golden (well, maybe piss) yellow with a fluffy head. It left soon after arriving but left some lacing. Aroma not particularly appealing - macro. Taste is a little sweet, and it is better out of the bottle than a glass. One of those light drinkable cheap beers. It does have a hidden bitterness as well. Itís no Stock Ale, but it beats Canadian.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2005 Iíve heard this beer tasted better before Molson got hold of it (originally brewed in SK). Seems to be a trend with that brewer.Cheap, it will do the job, if that is what one desires. I found it bland, and LUCKilY know of other value brands that will also do the job and taste like beer, for this beer, I would settle for it to taste like anything.
