2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
24 oz can into a glass. Woo, íMerica! Wait...
A: Pours a straw color. The three-finger white head actually has a bit of duration to it - a good duration, actually. Thereís 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 isnít a whole lot of flavor. The best feature isnít that itís great, because it clearly isnít, 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 thereís a positive trade-off, itís 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: Iíve had FAR worse macro lagers than this. And Iíve 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, Iíd even drink this again.

refreshing and vibrant with malt syrup in the flavor and an alcohol and hop character that wafts a perfume of fruit. sometimes seemingly a bit salty like the golden. golden malt like snse in the taste made it a good chugger.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle of 341ml, in a Tumbler glass; from the fridge.
Okay, weíre in front of a middle-class beer... but itís good. Sheís like other lager : pale clear colour (but more orange), light aroma and taste, and very very diffuse palate.
But the thing is, the beer is good, with a nice floral taste, but light, so itís very refreshing.
Try it !

Bottle. Slightly more hop presence than its American counterparts. Still, not great. Pours a clear yellow with a quickly disappearing head. Corn, some light hops. Sweet. Thin. Not good.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Full disclosure: this can is over two years old. It has been in my fridge almost the whole time, however. Itís a standard pale straw color with fizzy white head. Doughy sweet aroma. Flavor is too sweet. Creamed corn and not much else. A slight crisp herbal note shows up for a second, and then gives way to the return of corn. Iíve always found this and the Molson Ice to be far too sweet, while the Golden is cleaner and thus more dinkable. I donít hated it, though.

Amber with thin film for a head. Smells like malty grains. Bready, caramel.
Tastes of sweet breads and a lime like finish in a light way.
Hadnít had one of these in years and it was actually better than I was expecting.

On tap at Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge LHR, October 2014.
Clear light golden with a small white head. Thin and sweet with corn, some grain and cardboard. Also a metallic bitterness. Tasty? Sorry, not!

Thing is, I was searching for that one so long. I enjoyed their ads long time ago when Internet was slow on 64k. Therefore - this one is watery and full of rise. But big enough to let Phil Esposito hit some checks on TV. I am Canadian. Say tha one really loud when you drink it. You will believe.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer pours out in a clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw. Taste of light hops, malt, straw and mild fruits. Thin and watery finish. Drinakble, yet nothing special.
