A mainstream lager with a moderate hop character and a slightly sweet, fruity refreshing aroma and taste.

Light head, nice colour for the style. Thin aroma. I remember this beer before Molson bought Carling O'Keefe as the one non-beer drinkers drank before Coors Light. As such I was a little surprised that it was actually a lightly hopped and average American Standard.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2003 Better than having to drink American but worth the risk of stashing outside in a snowstorm with the chance of it getting stolen!

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.

Bottle from Strathroy Ale House September 2013. Fairly standard pale lager with a faint amber colour, white head, grassy aroma and basic flavour.

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.

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.

Pours a golden yellow color. Aromas of corn, grains, and a little hops. Flavor is smooth grainy with a detectable hop presence, finishes with a sweetness.

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.
