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 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Aroma is strong, a bit peelike with strong corn syrup note. Flavour is sweet, with lots of corn syrup again, kind of sticky really. Not nearly enough carbonation to carry it, which kind of surprises me. Some light fruitiness in there and a hint of gasoline.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is the all around Canadian beer. Clear, clean and refreshing. Nothing to boastful in the taste but it an all around decent choice for a lager. Best served very chilled and with friends.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
355ml bottle served in a tulip glass.
A: Pours a pale yellow color forming a bubbled and aired head that dissipates quickly leaving practically no lacings
S: Standard Adjunct Malts Lager beer. Which means, a very weak smell of adjunct malts. Mainly corn. Disgusting
T: As bad as the nose. A slightly sweet malts upfront. Strong notes of adjunct malts, mainly corn. As a matter of fact, as the nose, you can barely feel some real beer in it. Some very far bitterness indicates that some few hops were used
M: Light body. Good carbonation. Terrible adjunct malts aftertaste
O: Horrible drinkability. Standard mass production Adjunct Lager. Donít drink it!

Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a smallish, quickly dissipating head and big bubbles. Typical lager aroma. The taste is a little biscuity. Aqueous,but no off flavors.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden, clear, almost apple juice coloured, highly carbonated, not very aromatic, and slightly sweet but overall itís a passable beer. It tastes like most macro-brew creations and thereís not much to this beer that either positively or negatively hits the taste buds. It has the distinct flavour of nationalism and by that I mean itís not too bad unless you pay attention.
