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

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.

355 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a clear golden yellow with small white head that does hang around. Aroma is sweet corn and little else. Flavour is similarly adjunct-dominated; maybe a little grass. Pretty thin; lightly carbonated. Weak, although should I have expected otherwise.

This wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Kind of sweet, bready flavour and aroma. Nothing special or interesting. But not repulsive.

Originally rated September 2005. Old Vienna is one of my good go-to easy-drinking lagers. It pours a golden colour with a medium head and carbonation. A rim of foam is formed around the glass, leaving lace as I sip through. The aroma is typical grain malt. The taste starts off slightly bitter and hits a smooth finish. The aftertaste is like the corn I enjoy, found in High Life. One good swill. Notes (2012): Had a 12 of this on New Years Eve... and it was still a pretty decent swiller.

From the 12 fl. oz. can stamped: MAR0413-E08071051. It pours pale yellow with a full, foamy, white head that lingers to the end. Pilsener and grainy malts on the nose with a slight sweetness and clean hop note. Light and smooth body. The taste is also on the grainy side with some vague malts and a light hop bite to finish. Simple to drink this classic.

Very light and inoffensive. Pale color, mild hops aroma, malt and corn palate and watery finish. Okay

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.

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 29, 2005
Canned sample. Very pale yellow in colour with lots of carbonation. Very fizzy indeed. Little aroma, but perhaps there’s just a bit of corny-malt and alcohol. The body was painfully thin. Some light fruit (maybe apple) flavor was evident, as well as the slightest hint of some earthy hops. Slightly better than expected, and much better than theother option of malt liquor I was offered at my mother-in-law’s house.

UPDATED: FEB 5, 2008 Better than expected. A strange bitter taste throughout. Aroma is slightly hoppy with some fruit characters. Better than Canadian, Canadian Ice, etc. Just not great.
