COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth clean-tasting lager that offers a good balance between malt sweetness and hop bitterness

An okay beer, not as good as I had hoped it would be. Still, not a bad lager by any means. Aroma is where it suffers, with it giving off a bit of sweet corn. Appearance is a pale yellow, much like a Budweiser or Kokanee. Taste is decent for a lager - similar to most lagers but with a slight bit of peppery hop bitterness at the end and a sweetness in the initial taste. Overall itís nothing to write home about, but I donít mind it at all for what it is. Decent enough.

Good olí after hockey beer from a time ago. Anyways, Iíve had this more than enough times in my life. Here goes, in various beer drinking vessels and straight from the bottle as well. The appearance was a straight up pale yellow color with a vast array of carbonation bubbles rising into a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies. The smell leaves a ton to be desired, but I do get some light sweet corn adjuncts. The taste was sweet corn. There was no aftertaste nor finish. On the palate, it sat extremely light and sessionable. Carbonation seemed appropriate for the Light Lager style. Overall, its a Light Lager - it does what its supposed to do and nothing else.

Bottle. The look is clear, whitish head, and golden in color. The smell is skunky, corn, grain, light, and floral. The taste is a lot of corn, floral, and ick.

Itís an average lager. No distinct flavors or aromas. Drink several to get desired effect.

Good beer its the Canadian version of yingling. If your gonna drink it I recommend drinking at least 15 in one night to get the effect.

edsspoon (419) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle - Pale golden with a large bubbly white head which fades to a ring. Aroma of citrus, grassy hops, pine, little bit of corn and some alcohol. Taste is light grassy and fruity hops with slightly sweet malts; minerally, light bitterness, lemony with hints of banana and some flowers. Medium sweet. Light body, light to medium carb. Itís a bit watery but I quite like this one.

Really, this is a pretty bad beer. Youíve really got to strain to sense any sort of defining characteristics other than bland mediocrity. Itís kind of pretty to look at, a clear straw colour, and thereís a bit of a malty flavour with a slight bitterness, but it is truly a beer that demands nor expects any consideration or attention.

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2014
This was the first foreign beer I drank in Norway (excl. Danish and German beers). When they changed the beer laws in Norway in the late 80ís this arrived quickly after. I enjoyed drinking this, made me feel like I was "special" when I opened one of these at a highschool party and so on. These days you wonít find it anymore. Ther beer is fairly middle of the road, but perhaps because it is Canadian, much better than most of its counterparts in the US. Why is that? Well, it seems muc more European, and it doesnít taste like cornflakes or rice crisies.
