ChadPoole (105) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2016
Pours light golden with a small white head. Grassy aroma. Grassy, biscuit taste. Not a bad beer but kinda plain.

This is rather terrible. Good for post grass cutting beer, shower beer, or dressing room beer. Best drunk cold and drunk quickly. Ughh

pumpkinhead2 (699) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Bière jaune pâle aux reflets un peu verdâtres, parfaitement limpide, bonne effervescence belle et uniforme, et surmontée d’un col blanc immaculé plutôt étroit mais tout de même mousseux, collant et persistant. Arômes de pain frais et malt pâle, léger grain, sucre brut et soupçon de citron. Effluves qui peuvent également faire penser par moment à la présence d’un houblon plutôt végétal, gazon et feuille verte. Nez ordinaire, complexité et intensité faibles. En bouche, pétillement moyen sur la langue, onctuosité tout de même intéressante, on note une belle rondeur, un moelleux et velouté fort intéressant pour le style. Au goût, pain frais, malt pâle et sucre brut (ça goûte le pain sucré…) avec notes de citron, gazon et feuille verte. Bon goût mais sans plus, complexité faible, intensité correcte en bouche. Bière correcte qui se compare sans complexe aux autres bonnes lagers pâles offertes sur le marché québécois…

KoNrRiI (1036) - Århus, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2015
0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of hops, pale malts, and hay. Taste is sweet, malty and features DMS. Light body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is DMS-y as well. Overall not much to talk about, a bit better lager.

UXO (1256) - CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Appearance: clear pale straw with one fat finger of fluffy eggshell white head, excellent retention and decent lacing. (4/5) Aroma: grassy, biscuity, corn. (4/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-low bitter. (5/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, short duration finish. (2/5) Somewhat surprisingly, not terrible. A bit on the sweet side, but reasonably smooth with a decently dry crisp finish. (9/20)

___Steve___ (62) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2015
Clear straw colour. Right from the can vigorously poured to create a tall think foamy head, quintessential lager looking glass of beer. Dry grassy aroma with a faint creamy scent with green vegetables and sugar notes with herbal undertones. Taste is very sweet upfront almost overbearing, hints of simple syrup and refined sugar, the bitter after taste is far too subtle for my palate.

mathieuc (2961) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
Pours a clear golden with a medium white head on top that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of corn and light proper cereals. Taste is of corn, some lightly sweet cereals and bitterness is low to medium (enough to be noticed). Lightl fruitiness. Body is light to medium and carbonation medium to high and mouthfeel is a bit watery. Overall an OK mindless libation I guess, better than most macro but not quite good.

Atom (2045) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2015
On tap at Kings head, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Veggie aroma with malt, grain, corn and yeast. Taste of corn and malty grain, nice balance, yeast with a nice hop bitterness, slightly grassy. Pleasant and drinkable.

Gerbeer (2815) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2015
On tap. Pours a clear gold with light head. Light aromas of cereal. Flavors of bready grain and corn sugar. Easy to drink and not offensive but no character.

YigSvartka (269) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 23, 2015
Transparent white/gold hue with an immediately dissipating white head. Corn, malt, honey, and slightly metallic aroma. Thin bodied. Surprisingly not terrible tasting. An extremely smooth combination of corn, malt, honey, and yeast finishes with a wee bit of hop. Certainly better than most macros.
