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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Yellow color with almost instantly disappearing foam. The smell is a little malty and a lot of standard lager smell. The taste is exactly the same. The aftertaste is a little malty. All in all, you wonít suffer or benefit from drinking this.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
I wish I liked this beer. Love the name being a proud Canadian, but to me, it has a bad after-taste. Tried it several times over the years when it was the only choice. That said, I understand if others love this beer, everyone has their own taste. Love Molsonís Rickards Red though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. This is not a very good beer. Compared to the macros i put this way behind Bud, Schlitz, Coors and PBR. It just isnít very tasty, the color is OK.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Had a can of this on the train ride from Montreal to Ottawa. I was mainly impressed with the cool look and the extra pop-tab on the can for an easy pour.

Standard industry lager. Watery, very little taste. Boring, boring. Perhaps a little tiny bit of hops.

can@ air canada. Light huge white foam maybe due to the low partial pressure in the cabin. White bread notes. Weak diacetyl. Fine slight bitter dry light taste. Pleasant.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Straw yellow with wispy head. Corn, bread, and harsh aftertaste. Not a fan of the style to begin with, but find this worse than American counterparts.
