3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 mL Can. Light gold body with a foamy-bubbly white head that settles to a ring leaving lots of spotty lace. Aroma of grains, yeast, hay, a hint of honey, and floral notes. Flavor light sweet malt with a subtle accent of honey, very mild aftertaste, and a nice clean finish. A light-bodied beer, this is one of the better summer beers I’ve come across. Brownie points for it being all-malt as said on the label.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light straw colour. Thin white head that rapidly dissipates.
Aromas of salt and vinegar chips, and the merest hint of wet cardboard.
Palate is thin, and light bodied. Tastes are light vanilla biscuits, and weak green apples sourness.
Overall, I love the Muskoka heavy hitters, but this isn’t one of them. More like one of their early offerings trying to draw in the macro crowd. Would not buy again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Re-rate: originally wasn’t impressed with the aroma or taste, accidentally bought it again, this batch not too bad except somewhat weak taste. Dunno, maybe first pack was off.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Translucent golden hue, served cool, no head. Nearly imperceptible aroma consisting of honey and yeast. Taste is much better. Still extremely smooth and refreshing akin to any other pale lager, but a pleasantly sweet aftertaste remains that surpasses the vile finish with most macro lagers. A wee bit of bitterness makes it more complex as well. Would have preferred this ice cold though.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2010 473ml can from the LCBO. Pours a dark yellow, with no head. A little malt in the aroma, but not much else. A bit bland and a touch on the sweet side, but a drinkable lager.

This is the best cheap beer I have ever had! For a buck a beer, I was not expecting such a dramatic improvement over the regular similarly priced cheap swills. For all you macro and cheap beer drinkers, look no further. This is indeed the holy grail of a buck a beer. Highly recommend if you’re at a bad bar with no other option except local macros, or if getting drunk is your goal of the night. It was for the party I brought it for. Everyone was amazed that it was so much better than regular buck a beers. But naturally, I wouldn’t buy it if I had better options.
