GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - NOV 2, 2014
Pours pale yellow with a thin, fizzy head that's mostly gone in 10-15 seconds. Faint cider-like scent. Taste is sweet. Thin, fizzy beer. Drinkable, but not remarkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

" can be a decent, crisp beer when itís not skunky, but unfortunately that it not very often. not enough good to overcome this. not at all recommended."

Lancer01080 (2) - Palmer, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2014 does not count
Liked the aroma and the flavor was consistent with each one. A pleasant beer to have at the end of the day and/or with friends. No bite to it.

Vcoggins (53) - Cypress, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Gold straw. Two inch white head dissipates quickly. Typical adjunct aroma of corn, grass, some light malt. Flavor of light hops and corn. Finishes sweet with grass and more light hops. Not bad for an adjunct lager but not something I would really ask for given another choice.

HIGHB4LL (656) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2014
12 oz bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: two fingers white head, straw color, clear, light lacing. Aroma: grass, light fruit, leaves, biscuits. Palate: light body, average to soft carbonation, light bitter finish, light dry finish. Taste: light sweet biscuity malt and light grassy bitter hops at the end. Overall, drinkable, refreshing, but really just a beer. Good for what it is though.

Iíve always said that this is stale left over Molson Canadian, nothing special going on here. Not a bad beer on a hot day, this one is a little harder to find further away from Canada, so I just stick with the more readily available Molson Canadian or Labattís Blue when I feel like letting the Canadian Flag fly (Iím originally from the boarder).

Itís the Budweiser of Canada. Not a bad beer but there is better. Goes good with watching Hockey.

Shot (176) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2014
From a keg. Golden in color with little head retention. Very subtle aromas of grass and sweet malt. Slight sweet flavors upfront that finish with muted citrus and a bit of biscuit. Very light mouthfeel with a dry finish. Not horrible. There are worse beers.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle at my uncleís. Aroma is light corn, bread crust, and noble hop. Pours amber with a nice fizzy foamy head. Taste is clean grains, caramel, and a light malt body. Good tasty pale lager. Enjoyed this more than I thought I would.
