Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2007
(Can 35,5 cl) Fairly decent straw golden, no head to speak of. I think I detect a whiff of malt in the aroma - or was it just a dream? Not much body, but perhaps a little more than in my prior experiences with Canadian swill. Grainy, sweetish, cereal-like. Hops? What hops? 040792

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2004
Swillfest ’04: Sour aroma with grass and blackberries. Fizzy body obfuscates whatever flavours might have been there - grains I guess. Lousy, even by swill standards.

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2007
Can of "Carling Lager" from the LCBO (4.9% abv) blue and yellow can. Pale yellow with a tiny white head. Muted grainy aroma, light grassy hops. Grassy bitterness is actually fairly decent for a macro, albeit fairly bland. Average palate. Not awful while cold.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 17, 2006
Single bottle purchased at the Irving Big Stop in Pointe a la Croix PQ. Pale gold, modest head, no retention. No real aroma. Lifeless palate typical of most macro swill with a harsh edge in the finish. No thanks.

mabel (6673) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2007
[546-20070818] 473mL (w/ ducttape, jerc, called "Lager"). Corn and peas and wheat grain aroma. Clear, golden yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Generic corn vegetable beer flavour is lightly malty. Medium body is astringent and grainy. Not impressive.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 2, 2004
Small head, pale gold lager. Fruity hints, obvious missing hop element might be annoying. It feels incomplete at this point.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2006 Bottle (341ml). Silver lining in visiting a friend who has "discovered" that if you plop a bunch of ice cubes in a glass of beer it stays colder and lasts longer; I told him if I caught him doing that with a Dreadnaught I would throw him off his 22nd floor balcony (no risk of him having/drinking flavourful beer). Anyway, pale fizzy yellow, some fizzy white head. Smells watery and sugary; tastes watery, sugary and of stale corn, no hop character at all; weak bodied, what hit my palate left in a hurry - not awful, but cheaply made - typical cheap generic Canuck macro, sweet - but nothing horrific (like, say, Steelback).

presario (4707) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2004
Pale but bright yellow with a good starting head (big bubbles that sink so fast before your eyes you'll think it is a camera trick. Pretty much no aroma but gets a bonus since it doesn't offend either. A little thicker body than expected. A touch of bitterness in the finish. An hint of alcohol. Why are there so many songs about rainbows....and so many 5% pseudo beers?

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 1, 2004
Very light sweet grainy aroma. Very pale with thin white fully diminishing head. Sweet, grainy flavour. Astringent and thin. Bottle.

mansquito (3555) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Pours yellow with crap head. Typical mediocre aroma. Taste is grainy there is a modicum of hops. Overall just bland and slightly sweet.
