24 oz can into a glass. Woo, ’Merica! Wait... A: Pours a straw color. The three-finger white head actually has a bit of duration to it - a good duration, actually. There’s even some spotty lacing left on the glass. For a macro lager, this looks damn good. S: The aroma is generally pretty corny, with some lime sweetness. Not as bad as, say, Budweiser. T: It starts with a notable presence of cereal grains. Aside from a subtle fruit ester quality and the faintest twinge of hops on the aftertaste, there isn’t a whole lot of flavor. The best feature isn’t that it’s great, because it clearly isn’t, but that the bad elements of the style are restrained acceptably. M: It feels sweet and even a bit slimy on the palate. However, if there’s a positive trade-off, it’s that the raging carbonation ever-so-prevalent in the style is dialed back well. Very easy to drink, but I wish it was drier - the sweetness is a bit cloying to me. O: I’ve had FAR worse macro lagers than this. And I’ve even had worse craft beers than this, too. This is perfectly okay, if not exactly good. I can now see where some of you Canadians are coming from - this blows our BMC out of the water. Hell, I’d even drink this again.

Gangstergafje (666) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2016
The beer has a nice look. The color of the beer is a rather light golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear. Some bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. On top of the beer, a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, to leave a nice soft drape of foam. The smell is nice. There is a nice bitter and slightly sour fresh hop aroma. This gives the beer a really nice smell. The smell is very good for a pilsener. The taste of the beer is quite nice. There is a nice fresh sour bitter hop flavor and a nice rather sweet malt aroma. Nice beer, but simple.

Only way to go in Saskatchewan. I actually prefer this over colors, bud and the like but I'm guessing it's due more to a change in scenery

jamestulloch (3370) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2016
Can. Clear golden body with a thick white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of lemon and hay. Flavour of steel and biscuit with a peppery finish. Thin to medium body with a watery texture. Light fizz. A decent mass produced Lager.

pkbites (862) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 15, 2016
Can. This is probably the most sub-par beer any of the macros brew. It has a huge fluffy head that lasts the duration, so that’s ok. Some decent lacing too. But there is no aroma. And there is absolutely zero presence of hops. None. Zip. What really sinks this is the presence of corn sweetener. This stuff is about 98% corn water. Just another reason why Kanada sucks. Can’t get a decent gun or a decent beer up there.

12 oz. bottle. Poured golden, white head. Aroma was grassy and sweet corn. Taste was light sweet malts and light on flavor.

Average tasting beer. I would probably only get this to switch things up or if it was on sale.

I hate this beer more than almost any other beer. You can barely taste the beer, and what you do taste is so unsatisfying you are wondering why you searched for it in the first place. Gross.

AssKicker (201) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - APR 9, 2016
Blonde très claire, mousse qui disparaît rapidos, senteurs de pas grand chose au nez, idem en bouche. Ah si, c’est flotteux en fin de bouche. Sans intérêt.
