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.

Bottle at my uncle’s. 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.

Here’s one of those after hockey beers that I stole to take home to analyze because of my OCD behavior. Here’s my take. Into a pint glass, the appearance was a super light yellow to golden amber color with a decent half finger-ed white foamy head. The smell had some roasted corn huskiness to it. The taste was semi-sweet and showed a semi-decent crisp grassiness about it. The palate sat fairly light and showed a great deal of sessionability about this one. Overall, this is just another AAL. Cheers.

Not bad for a canadian beer. This is the first beer I ever drank so I always enjoy it.

Yellow fizzy pour with a head that disappears pretty quick. Grainy & slightly skunky aroma but with a surprising & almost shocking odd but not unpleasant taste. This is a different pale lager with a sharp alcohol and slightly odd grainy / hoppy taste. Very dry and full of adjuncts, this does not have any ale characteristics as claimed and the finish is a very flat beer type boozy. Not a typical pale lager, reminds me of an Ice party beer.

Headbanger (3231) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
Bottle (Old Notes)-Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn, malt, and slight hops. Taste of mostly malt with some slight hops thrown in. This light bodied brew is what it is and is not bad compare to the other Canadian Pale Lagers.

Hockey fans are a rare breed, watch "the code" commercials. "You know the sippy cup lid isn’t as stupid as it sounds..." This is a hockey beer, good, delicious, and meant for watching hockey. Your generic golden.

Can poured into pilsner glass. Clear golden color, with large head that dissipates quickly. Strong carbonation, hoppy taste. Nothing special. Above average light beer. Beats Budweiser, Miller, and Coors.
