malvrich (206) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2016 12 oz.bottle from 12 pack. Box dated 6/28/15 so past freshness range. Pilsner glass A: Crystal clear pale yellow and bubbly. 1/2" head drops pretty quickly leaving a collar. S: A little biscuit/cracker along with noticeable grassy hop. Oddly, no detectable skunk but 12 packs are enclosed T: Crisp and lightly bitter taste but without much distinction as to exactly what Iím tasting. Mostly just mildly malty but not bad. M: Light to medium body and good fizz quite fit for knocking back the whole pack with a couple of friends. Very clean dry finish. O: Of course this is nothing special but it has a place in my heart and I still enjoy it although I almost never buy it. Glad I reacquainted myself with this old friend.

The beer has a simple look. The color is golden yellow, but the beer is very pale. The beer forms a normal layer of rough foam, which collapses quickly. This isnít different form other pilseners or lagers. The beer looks nicely carbonated, a lot of tiny bubbles are rising to the top. The beer has quite a nice smell. It is hoppy. I smell some fresh grass. The hop aroma is quite nice, better than in most simple lagers. I love this hop aroma in beers like this. It is a accessible and easy to drink lager, with just a little more depth to it. The beer also has a nice taste. I can taste the alcohol. There is also a little bread in the taste. Besides this i can taste the hops, those are nice and fresh. The beer is a step above just lager, it is a little more tasteful. My first Canadian beer, and it isnít disappointing.

Lackluster fizzy color and appearance. Smells like hay, malt. Tastes like hay and malt.. very smooth though.

Overall I really like this beer. I donít find it bad tasting like some people say. The only downside it is a little pricey for what it is. I got a 28 on sale at the beer store for the same price as a 28 of Budweiser. Great beer.. higher price.

jamaty (1771) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 9, 2015
Dorada, clara, limpia, burbujeante, de espuma blanca. Cereal en el aroma, escaso. Gas notable en el trago. Textura suave, de tono cereal, algo dulce con contrapunto de amargor moderado. Muy bebible.

From Club del Gourmet of El Corte Ingles. In Ikeaís pilsner glass. Warching Zombie diaries. Typical industrial lager. Nothing special here. Not worth more than a few cents.

My first Canadian beer was this. Or Molson. But this is my favorite. You can tell this is a finely brewed ale from the first sip. Someone loved and nurtured this recipe. You definitely know your drinking good brew from the first sip. If you havenít had it, get it.
