2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(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

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Small head, pale gold lager. Fruity hints, obvious missing hop element might be annoying. It feels incomplete at this point.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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).

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.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[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.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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?
