2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, Watts Lake, Ontario at my Dad’s 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 didn’t 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 wasn’t expecting at all. I had a few and didn’t 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.

Why’d they bother?
Is there that big of a Saskatchewan ex-pat community in Ontario that anyone would buy this? Oh... it’s cheap.
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)

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A Saskatchewan regional beer that’s 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.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

Nothing special here. Golden yellow, small white head. Slightly biitter. Little carbonation. Decent beer if you are planning a heavy session.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
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. It’s no Stock Ale, but it beats Canadian.
