COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Nose of malt and grain, not much else. Taste Initial brightness and slight floral, but fade quickly into all malt. Mild bitterness. A little better than lots of the pale lagers.

This beer is one of my favorites. I am, for the most part, an ale drinker. If you try this beer, I would suggest allowing the beer to come to room temperature before sampling. It tastes best at is fermenting temperature. Excellent compliment to fish and chips. Cheers.

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 25, 2011
341ml bottle from the NLC in St. Johnís. Only sold in NFLD. Not over-carbonated in the artificial sense of having that terrible acidic nastiness, but this beer seemed to be all effervesance. Is bubbles a taste? This stuff just seemed to disappear in my mouth which make for some easy drinking.

mullet2007 (209) - St. Johns, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 12, 2007
341 ml bottle. Darker than the average pale lager, but still only a pale gold. Very thin quickly dissipating white head. Medium to high carbonation. Flavor is pretty sharp, tastes slightly yeasty, slightly appley, and a lot like an offshoot of a macro beer. Very sweet, not really malty though. A little bit bitter, but not incredibly so. It isnít bad, a good beer to drink lots of.

destroye7 (312) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2006
341 ml bottle. Medium carbonation. Clean golden color. A bit nutty. Reminds me of Molson dry.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with BeerMountie! - Thanks Tony! - Pours pale amber and clear with a short white that faded pretty quick. Aromas of lihgt grains and not much else. Flavor is light grains, some herbal notes, and maybe a little bit of apple. Quite fizzy and light on the palate. Almost like a champagne with all the bubbles. Not as terrible as regular Molson, but not real good either.

GregClow (2901) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 6, 2006
Bottle - courtesy of jerc. Light yellow-orange with a fizzy white head that disappears quickly. Mild, grainy aroma with some odd backing notes, like apple juice, coconut(?) and pie crust(!?). Thin body. Generic macro flavour, fairly sweet off the top, soapy middle, quick finish with very slight bitterness.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2006
Dull yellow colour. Light grainy strawlike aroma. Fizzy with vague malts, grains, fusels and other unionmade off notes. Quick, wet finish. More bland than anything else, but certainly not clean. Thatís 5/5 for me now, too.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 28, 2006
Yellow body, small white head. Sweet vaguely floral aroma, with light grainy notes. Flavour is grainy generic malt with a light bitterness to balance it out a bit. Average palate. Dull. Thanks BeerMountie!
