3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6 pack from the LCBO. Consumed in one evening. This beer is yet another great example of how buck-a-beers can actually be pretty damn tasty. Mediocre malt body, bland and standard, no adjuncts, but the hops really shine in this one. Really nice dryness, bitterness, and lemony aspect to the whole experience (all more or less at the same time). Makes a great party beer, or just a great casual sitting around, not-wanting-to-drink-an-Imperial-Stout beer. Giver a try. Ontario’s new slogan should be: "Ontario, land of buck-a-beers, which are actually pretty decent!"

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried this beer on April 22, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent pale golden colour with a 1/2" white head that disappeared quickly. The aroma was grainy malt, weak hops, and acidic tones. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt and wet metal. Not a great beer.

Single can purchased from an LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/06/2012. Colour: Medium-light yellow with no head. Nose: Malt dominant. A trace of flowery perfume flutters around - and some soap. Taste: Light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Standard lager, with some vanilla notes among the overwhelming malt. Corn as well. Serviceable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
This lager poured a light yellow colour with next to no head, even after a vigourous pour.l To the nose there are scents of corn, hopps and a little ripe fruit. First taste was smooth but a little watery. Not much of an aftertaste. Flavours of corn, sweet malt and spice??? Finish is nothing. a faint beer flavour plus corn. Flavour just seems to disappear. Not too bad but lifeless.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewing from notes based on the Muskoka variety pack I got a while ago. Didn’t have much head or flavor, a typical malty lager. Comparable to drinking a bottle of water.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Colour is nice, little darker than macro lager. OK head retention. Aroma is surprisingly malty. Not too malty, but enough to know that this is a well-made beer. taste is great, good sweetness but also some bitterness. Feel is light/medium, but very drinkable with no off characteristics. Aftertaste has that bitterness, but very pleasant all around. Good beer.
