2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Has a really odd taste that I wasn't expecting. Has a slight raspberry taste with a bit of an acidic bite like viniger and bitterness to it. Cloudy yellow gold. I don't think I would buy this again. Given to me or found in a bar full of labbats and molson I would have it though. Nothing special.

can. Poured clear straw coloured with a thin white head. Aroma of hay. Mouthfeel is creamy and light. Flavour is bready malt and finishes with a lingering bitterness.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2016 473ml can. Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a thin, bubbly, white head that thins quickly. Aroma has notes of sweet grain, lager esters, slight caramel, and traditional bittering hops. Taste is balanced well with notes of bready caramel, earthy/spicy hops, slight grass and hay, fruity lager yeast, and a quick ending. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a mildly dry finish. Overall a well crafted lighter lager.

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.

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.

2.8 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.
