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.

Low on flavor and watery and the flavor that does stand out I find is either mildly bitter or at least finishes bitter-ish. I would say kind of like Bud, bread like or yeasty. In a pinch, sure! or else Iíd choose something else.

Pours gold with a disappearing white head. Corn and some sweetness in aroma with hints of citrus, Some crispiness in the ending. Too carbonated and way too sweet.

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.

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.

King_Alex_II (671) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 23, 2015
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.

ordybill (695) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2015
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.

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