650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a light golden colour, with a small white head. Aroma is initially a bit musty, but settles to mildly hoppy. Taste is slightly bitter. Lively carbonation.

Cloudy straw with some sediments. Aroma is citrus and yeast. Taste is a little bitter with citrus hints. Not bad but many do it better. Reminded me of a cheap man’s Heritage Premium Lager.

Nice but a little bitter if accompaning it with some olives. It has the sandy taste of the Canadian beers and nice aroma.

Man, this stuff is truly the one of the worst pale lagers I have ever had. The aroma is ok, with mainly just a watered down grassy saaz hop smell. But the flavour, oh god the horror, starts out starts out like it almost might not be that bad, with a little bit of hops upfront, and a touch of weak malts in the middle, but by the time this beer touches the back of your throat it tastes like your drinking dish soap. This stuff is actually giving me a stomach ache. Extremely low drinkability.

Bomber bottle. Hazy straw yellow pour, moderate white head. Buttery sweet aroma (my wife says it smells like buttered popcorn!). Buttery malt, sweet, lightly hopped finish.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 650ml bomber from the LCBO. I’m not entirely sure why I bought this, I guess I have to lay off the PCP. Pours a hazy golden colour with a creamy textured white head. Aroma: Actual grassiness from the hops, some ok malts, but there’s the tell-tale Trafalgar spoiled sourness in there too. Oh man. Flavour: Not as hideous as I was expecting, but definitely not something I’m going to be finishing. Loads of weird vegetable flavours on top of spoiled sourness. I’ve heard the beers from this brewery HAVE to be had within tenish days of bottling, and this seems like it would be decent if fresh, but to be honest, in my opinion that’s unacceptable. If you’re going to send your products into a retail system, that kind of unreliability simply isn’t acceptable. Bottle your f***ing beers better and maybe I’ll be more inclined to actually spend money on them EVER again.

Purchased at Trafalgar Brewery. 650ml Bottle, 4% a/v
Pours a warm gold colour with light white head. Nose is malt and floral grass. The taste is strange, malty, fruity and has a strange aftertaste.. almost like hops and gummi bears.. Weird. But not bad.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Extremely clear pour. Had to try to get a head but when I did it was nice and frothy. Very weak scent. Barely discernable in a smoke free home. A bit of hops and grass, maybe. Suprisingly nice warm taste. A lot more palate then I expected from the scent. A somewhat bitter hoppy aftertaste that I’m not a big fan of. The taste has a bit of fruit, hops, grass, wheat and a touch of honey. Definately not the best beer I have had, but amazingly good for a light beer. A depth of character that suprised me. Maybe not my highest rate, but my highest rated light beer.

650mL bottle. Pours a nice cloudy light straw with quite a bit of head. Aroma is tart. The initial taste is rather tart - almost metallic in nature. In the end, it settles down to being quite lemony. The taste stays relatively sour throughout. The aftertaste is not particularly pleasing. This isn’t really my cup of tea, errrrrrr, beer, but at least it wasn’t the bland lager I was fearing it might be.
