2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 4.0% as Trafalgar Grand Lager. Vinous and mildly grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour has a good maltiness, distinct paper and vegetable notes. Not as bad as it sounds, though.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bomber from LCBO. A hazy golden lager with grainy grassy aroma. In mouth, a run of the mill product with signs of lactic acids, infection. No hops here. Not too good. Tulip festival edition.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
watery. Little hop, some malt, no color, sickly aroma. And this was fresh. Touch of lemon mid-sip, like lemon in a water glass. Some bitterness, not awful,

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2007 July 2007. Golden yellow body with a small fading white head. Sweet fruity aroma hints at mango, and over ripe lychee fruits, light hint of something that may or may not be diacetyl. Sweet fruity flavour with a sharp bitter note to the finish. The overall effect is a bit wonky but not necessarily unpleasant. Average palate. Outshines recent samplings of its brethren simply by avoiding infection. 6/3/6/3/12 - 3.0
<P>October 2003. Crisp golden yellow colour. Flowery fruity aroma with much of the same in the flavour. Sort of an odd aftertaste. 7/3/5/3/11 - 2.9

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2011 From the newer cans at the LCBO. Deep golden pour topped by a creamy white head. The aroma is moderately hoppy. Soft spicy/floral hop aroma with a little bit of earthiness also coming out. The beer is actually pretty decent. Soft sweet and slightly crackery malt aroma balanced by a nice floral hop character. This doesn’t bear any resemblance to the original version of this I’ve had. If they can keep this stable - they might actually do okay with it.
650 ml bottle. Pale golden, hazy appearance, thin white head fading to a slick of faint bubbles. Light fruity aroma, same diacetyl that all of their beers seem to have. Grainy malt and faint toffee. Flavour is full of diacetyl. Pale malt, some fruity yeastiness, and a sweet finish. Not a very good brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
[440-20070726] Sample @ LCBO-Summerhill. Toasted bread and grain aroma with some mango or apricot fruit notes. Clear, yellow orange body with a quick foamy white head. Medium body. Refreshing, as it seems fresh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice head and good retention for a lager. Regular OK quality malts, boring hops but the dry-hopping helps to enjoy a bit more the beer... Taste of boiled veggies.
