341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves only traces of lacing. Aroma is malty grains with faint hops. Taste is more bitter than the aroma and light malty sweetness. Standard macro lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
NOt bad, but not really exceptional though. It was like a strong lager without the higher levels of alcohol. Apparently used to be an independent brewery. And it seems to be from Scottish roots.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bought in Ontario, drank from a 341ml brown bottle. OV means Old Vienna, Vienna style where? Someone told me that OV stands for Old Vomit, probably more truthfull. Classic tasteless canadian mega brewers mega marketing beer. Cristal clear pale golden beer, no hops, no taste, no aftertaste.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yep, I knew I would get in a macro or two during the holidays back home in rural Eastern Ontario. Best bottle available at the local Legion on Pool night. Yellow pour, but slightly darker than its Molbatts cousins. Not really any aroma to speak off, other than expected grassy characteristics. Thin mouthfeel but there was some malty-sweetness in here that surprised me. Rough macro finish - hop character????? No. At least it was bought for me and it wasn’t that awful, especially compared to what was there.

Good beer. Has some body to it and goes down well. We used to drink the OV splits alot in the old days. (20 years ago) Why, cause that’s they only way some bars carried it.

355ml can from tbs, served in a chimay glass. very nice clear goldenwith a lasting white head and appropriate carbonation. not much of a nose, light adjunt sweetness. fairly clean flavour, not overly sweet or adjunty. pretty standard, unoffensive pale lager. a wise choice for my bottle returns.
