foyle (187) - Wyoming, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Appearance: pours a thin 1/2" white head that recedes quickly with no lacing. Color is a clear straw/light golden with abundant carbonation streaming. Aroma: a grassy aroma dominates with some toasted barley and a faint hop aroma. Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a dry finish. Flavor: malty sweetness dominates, slight bit of lemon, and a mild hop flavor in the finish.

Headbanger (2978) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of corn, grains, sweetness, slight skunk, hops and malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is one of the better tasting Canadian pale lagers.

Gerbeer (1491) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2014
on tape. Pours a clear gold with little head. Not much of any aroma; light malts and corn syrup. Flavors of corn and toasted malt. Not much different than any other Canadian industrial.

Bottle, clear, golden pour with a white head. Doesn’t smell that good and has a kind of cereal taste to it.

tectactoe (1167) - Michigan, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle: What to say about this one that hasn’t already been said? Pale straw-yellow body, bone-white "head" that’s gone almost instantly. Huge skunky aroma, dusty grain, stale hops... Mostly skunk, though. Taste has notes of metal, old hops, dry grain, skunk, DMS, & mineral water. Overly prickly carbonation. Not a good beer, but I don’t really need to tell you that, do I?

This is a great summer beer with just enough fizz to bring the hops flavors out. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Zarkam (336) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2014
350ml bottle from Gourmondo.de, clear sparkling gold colour, small fizzy white head, little lacing, Light malty aroma of corn and bisquit with light grassy and citric hops. Taste is initially moderately sweet and slightly bitter, turning into a short mildly bitter finish with a chalky feel. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Quite a boring lager, refreshing but not particularly tasty nor interesting. On the other hand, new country tick, 5% abv and goes down like mineral water when thirsty.

Pored from a bottle. Skunky smell with a note of grass or hay. Golden color, with a bland average lager taste that was better than the smell. When I smelled it, it smelled a lot like Heineken which is one of my least favorite beers. After a couple of sips it’s not to bad, Being from NY right next to Canada, I am 40 and have been seeing this around since I was 10 or 11 and just never tried it yet. Its not as good as Labatt’s or Molson, but is better than Old Vienna, another popular Canadian brew. For the price and availability I would drink it again.
