Pours one finger on a clear light straw colored body. The aroma is grain and rice. Boring. The taste is sweet through and through. The texture is fizzy, light body and sticky with moderate carbonation. Itís not the worst... but it has itís place.

Most of the people reviewing this beer are hipsters themselves. Itís a simple American macro lager, theyíre not trying to impress you with an abundance of hops or fancy label. This is the kind of beer you drink after mowing the lawn or just want to get a cheap drunk. Quit reviewing as though it should be on par with craft beers.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2014 Good for the price. Good for mass quantity drinking. Not special by any means. No depth.

The beer is light golden and transparent with a half inch of pure white head. Aromas of grain, bread, corn, adjuncts. Not as sweet and off putting as the BMC highly marketed crap that is seemingly everywhere. Grainy with some cereal-like character. Clean and refreshing. Basically, exactly what you would expect from a decent adjunct lager. Ok.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1850) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2014
Can back in Montreal, I canít believe I didnít rate this before. Ok what to say: It is a pretty typical macro yellow gold lager, sweet, sugary and mostly inoffensive. Beloved for being cheap and not much different from pricier macros. Average macro lager meaning below-average for a good beer.

This beer exemplifies the reason why I do not like beer review sites. Beer snobs like to trash popular commercial beers. As a 62 year old beer lover who has had over 1000 different beers, To this day I still enjoy a PBR. Why reviewers at this site like to trash this beer is compete mystery. It does have aroma, it does have flavor and it is smooth and refreshing. Is it a craft beer? No. Is it a high calorie Belgian? No Is it a watery light beer? No. It is a great beer that goes well with all food and is refreshing after hard work.

12 oz bottle, no aroma that I can discern, pale straw color, bland and dull. I was handed this beer and felt obligated to drink it for the first time in perhaps 20 years. Hopefully Iím never handed another one.

olio (6109) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours golden color with a small head. Very simple and straightforward both on aroma and flavor. Faint corn and some hay, maybe some faint cardboard notes also. Fairly easy to drink but lacks flavor. Pretty much what I was expecting. 2212

Classic right here... Pale and watery with some hints of malt and zero hop. Definitely refreshing and crushable.

JaKeAFC (516) - ITALY - JUL 6, 2014
65 cl bottle in Hong Kong, 11.90 HK$, 4.7%. Clear yellow color with a thin but nice white head. Some american hops on the nose. Aroma is fairly grainy with hints of american hops. Taste is flat. Body is thin, watery, carbonated, Dry finish, ultra short. Fine as a session beer when ultra cold.
